They may be rich, but many celebrities are actually cheap tippers. Being a bad tipper in today’s economy is especially heinous. Most service industry workers make minimum wage, which is often disproportional to the cost of living, especially in big cities like New York and Los Angeles where celebs are known to frequent. Several famous actors, actresses and musicians are known to be terrible tippers. Some of these celebrities leave bad tips after being divas at restaurants, while other celebrity cheapskates tip poorly at casinos. Some famous bad tippers think that leaving an autograph as a tip is the same as leaving cash.
Who is the most famous celebrity who is a bad tipper? Britney Spears tops our list. Britney Spears has been known to leave a restaurant without leaving any tip whatsoever. Tiger Woods is also often listed as a bad tipper. He reportedly took back a tip while playing a $10,000 hand of blackjack.
Usher has been known to cheap out on tips by leaving his autograph as a replacement. Jeremy Piven is another cheap celeb who leaves an autograph for a tip. He reportedly left a signed copy of an Entourage DVD in lieu of a tip at a restaurant.
It seems Academy Award nominee Don Cheadle is only nice to wait staff with this words. When it comes to his wallet, things get a little less agreeable. According to reddit user lennon1230, Cheadle gets stingy with his tips, no matter how many pizzas he’s ordering. According to lennon1230: “I worked at a pizza place in Santa Monica and answered the phone to a voice that sounded oddly familiar. I put in his number and lo and behold, it was Don Cheadle, the notes of his account read something like this: YES ITS DON CHEADLE THE ACTOR, BAD TIPPER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I took his order and he was quite friendly, at one point he had ordered like five pizzas and was like ‘wait how many pizzas do I have? Five? I must be crazy, okay, forget those last two.’ I asked the driver when he came back what his tip was like on the $50+ order, ‘Terrible, guy’s famous actor has a big house here and he tips me like he’s poor.’ Even though he was friendly on the phone, I can’t fathom why he couldn’t pop out a few more bucks and not get a reputation as a rich cheapskate.”
