A second Picasso owned by former casino owner Steve Wynn was damaged recently. It happened over the weekend at Christie's auction house during preparation to be sold.

The painting is titled "Le Marin." It's worth is estimated at $70 million, according to Fortune magazine. The auction house is not saying how it was damaged.

The painting was one of 3 owned by Wynn that was at Christie's to be sold.

Wynn, who was forced to sell his shares of Wynn Resort because of sexual misconduct allegations, was personally responsible for damaging another Picasso painting several years ago.

In that case, he stuck his elbow into the painting titled "Le Reve."

Christie's is also not saying how badly "Le Marin" was damaged.
