10 Worst Celebrity Tippers Who Are Stingy AF

Giving freely and enjoying financial success are not always mutually exclusive traits. Some of us fall victim to the arrogance that comes with fame, thinking we’re above the law and immune to its effects. While the rich and famous party it up in their mansions and vacation houses, the rest of America continues. Waiters and waitresses put up with the worst of the worst and have been subjected to lousy tippers from the A-list for years. And they’re sick of always being on the losing end of deals with famous people.

Although many people have a reputation for generosity, some have earned notoriety for being the worst tippers in the business. The rest of us can’t be like President Obama and David Beckham, who consistently leave generous tips. Restaurants: please take note. They don’t grasp it, including certain actors, singers, and sportsmen.

True, even among the young and famous, there are the occasional poor tippers. Kendell Jenner acted like the ultimate diva when she became pissed off that a bar wouldn’t serve her because she was underage. Upon not being paid, she departed. Jenner, upon being pursued, tossed twenty dollar notes at the staff without considering whether or not it would be enough to pay the bill, let alone leave a gratuity. Later, she tried to redeem herself by leaving a $554 tip at a different restaurant, including a $160 tip.

It would surprise you that one of the richest individuals in the world would have cheapskate tendencies when it comes to tipping. But it occurs. Mark Zuckerberg, founder, and CEO of Facebook skipped leaving an $8 tip on a $40 restaurant bill while on his honeymoon in Europe. Given that he is a billionaire, most of us don’t understand why he now has to reduce his outlays.

Actors and actresses in the movies and on television always have the most insightful things to say. Gwyneth Paltrow, actress and beauty expert, claims she has a poor tipping record because she is “terrible at math.” Her lack of education, she told interviewers, has led to her being turned over for jobs and prevented her from assisting her kid with his arithmetic homework. Only a universal mobile device equipped with a simple calculator would make calculating just 20% of a bill a breeze.
