Since we recently praised some celebs for their generosity towards restaurant waitstaff, it’s only fair that we also highlight those famous folks who are known to be a bit more frugal. So here’s a look at a few stingy stars!
Jeremy Piven: After dining at Nobu in Aspen with twelve friends in 2007, his “tip” was an Entourage DVD set, which the waiter apparently hurled at him on his way out. He has reportedly been banned from all Nobu locations to this day.
Xzibit: The rapper left $100 tip on a $1700 tab at Arnie Morton’s in L.A.
Hilary Duff: While dining with then-boyfriend Joel Madden at an undisclosed restaurant in 2007, she left only 10% on the bill.
Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes (Cruise): On one night out, the duo dined at Asia de Cuba in L.A. and left NO tip!
LeBron James: He reportedly made a waiter quit over a $10 tip on an $800 tab at XO Prime Steaks.
And according to author and former server Katherine Taylor, she had waited on several celebrities who repeatedly left no tip: Madonna, Parker Posey, and Rupert Everett. She also said that Tobey Maguire, Barbra Streisand, and Kelly Preston were notorious bad tippers.
