Sumner Redstone Celebrates 90th Birthday with Hollywood Elite


Viacom and CBS chairman, Sumner Redstone celebrated his 90th birthday with some of Hollywood’s elite at his Beverly Hills mansion.

The Hollywood Reporter (THR) reports that Sumner Redstone held a celebrity-filled party in Beverly Hills on May 27 with high-profile guests ranging from Tony Bennett to Mark Wahlberg. The formal event included a show stopping performance by Bennett, who sang some of Redstone’s favorite songs.

Variety reports that a giant red carpet was placed in front of Redstone’s home for the party and included a “theater marquee, tickets, candy,” and more. Guests were treated to a “lavish four-course dinner” before they enjoyed the private half-hour performance by Bennett.

A relative told Variety, “Sumner is happy tonight. And when he is happy, we are all happy. And his philanthropies are happy.”

Bennett credited Redstone with “putting me on MTV and making me a bigger star than I ever was…I will be forever grateful.”

Approximately 150 guests showed up to celebrate the mogul’s birthday. Attendees included Tom Cruise, Mark Wahlberg, David Letterman, Al Gore, Tony Bennett, Sherry Lansing, Philippe Dauman, Danny DiVito, and Arnon Milchan.

Redstone is a member of Haute Living’s Haute 100: The 100 Most Influential People in the World.
