Apparently Jennifer Lopez isn’t the only multimillion-dollar earner in her family.
J. Lo’s mother, Guadalupe Lopez, reportedly made a considerable contribution to the family kittie on Saturday when she hit a $2.4 million jackpot on a slot machine at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
The 58-year-old New Yorker pocketed $2,421,291.76 while playing Wheel of Fortune-themed slots, casino spokesman Michael Facenda told the Associated Press. Facenda denied any knowledge of the jackpot winner’s maternal ties to superstar J. Lo, but People and Us Weekly magazines make the connection in upcoming issues.
The Lopez family matriarch plans to use some of her winnings to set up a $100,000 college fund for her grandchildren, according to Us Weekly, but chances are no one in the clan’s going to be hurting for cash any time soon.
Spokespeople for Jennifer Lopez were not available for comment.
