She is worth almost $400 million. But Jennifer Lopez still seems interested in making as much money as she possibly can.

On Tuesday, Life and Style reported the 45-year-old performer snapped up $1.75 million for a 40 minute private concert in Macau in November.

The Boy Next Door actress is claimed to have sung a handful of songs for a 'family of casino magnates' at the Grand Hyatt Macau.

The publication suggested J-Lo was 'overseas' anyhow, so stopping by the city in the People's Republic Of China was not that far out of the way.

'She had a deal to give a 40-minute performance for a family of casino magnates,' a source said. "Several hundred thousands of dollars were paid up front, just for J-Lo's travel expenses.'

And the A.K.A singer brought a lot of people with her, including dancers that she used for her performance, reports Asian Town

'Her team requested more than 20 rooms,' a source said. A full staff was required for the show. 'One VIP suite was for her, in a five star hotel for up to three nights.'

Lopez often gives private performances. In 2011 the American Idol judge sang at the opening of a mall in Morocco. And in 2013 she performed for the president of Turkmenistan, Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, who has been accused of human rights abuses.
