The Game Stages a 6K Tip For WaiterPublished by on Friday, April 5, 2013 at 12:00 pm.
Don’t you love to hear those stories about the celebrity that enters a restaurant, eats a big meal and then lays a big, fat tip on the lucky waiter? Well, here’s a story that doesn’t exactly follow that allegory.
The Game enjoyed an Easter Sunday meal at Capital Grille in West Hollywood and later tweeted that he left a $6,000 tip for his waiter, Eme Ikwuakor. The rapper even provided picture proof for his 1.1 million Twitter followers, by sending out a pic of Ikwuakor holding a large wad of cash.
Now the waiter is separating fact from fiction; Ikwuakor says he did consent to the picture and The Game did hand him a large bundle of cash. But, the waiter says the tip was only $250 dollars. Not that Ikwuakor is complaining, he called the sum, “very generous and much appreciated,” it just had a lot less zeros than what the rapper claimed.
Maybe The Game was enjoying an early April Fool’s Day joke?
