Tips are something that is very debatable. There are people who think one should only tip if one wants to or else it isn’t necessary. On the other hand, there is also a bunch who thinks that it is almost a crime and extremely unethical if one does not tip. According to them, one should tip at least 20% of their total bill. Tipping 20% of the total bill is like an unsaid rule written somewhere in the books.

Rihanna

Whenever we’d talk about huge tips from celebrities we can absolutely not forget to add Riri to the list. The Fenty Beauty owner and singer has a huge heart and that is no secret. One night after dining in a high-end bar in Texas the singer tipped the waiter a handsome amount of $200. This was against her $82.25 bill. It seems like she was too happy at 1 in the morning while sipping on those drinks. Whatever the reason might be, with Riri’s net worth of over $1 billion one might expect a hefty tip for her.

Furthermore, the restaurant later also uploaded a picture of a handwritten note and the receipt thanking the actor for his generosity. This doesn’t end here.

The servers did not mention the amount while acknowledging the act due to the policies of the restaurant. but they did mention that it was indeed a very good one.

Amy Schumer

Just like Anna Ortiz, Amy had also worked as a waitress before she started acting in Hollywood. So this one time when she found out that the guy serving her was a student who was doing 2 jobs to pay his fee, she tipped him a $500 tip. When you know the hard work that goes behind a particular job, you tend to be empathetic towards the people doing it. This amount was against her $49 bills. But what makes Amy a much bigger person is her response to this tip. She mentioned that God had just sent her there with that tip as the carrier. If it wouldn’t have been for her, someone else would have done it.

Taylor Swift

Who doesn’t love to relax with friends after a hectic day at work, right? So does Taylor Swift. Swift took her friends out for a treat one day after working the entire day.

Sekhani, who served Johnny Depp and his friends at Gibson’s Steakhouse. As per Sekhani, he was merely doing his work and didn’t imagine getting such a huge amount for a tip. In any case, it was an amount that went quite far in helping him. Sekhani has since served Depp a few times, and the two are presently good friends.

Shaquille O’Neal

Shaquille O’Neal is a famously big name and this is no secret. While the subtleties of this particular tip are not as public, the NBA star dazzled us with his $4,000 tip to a woman who requested the specific amount to cover her rent for two months. This happened because Shaq is someone who grants the servers a chance to request the tip. He probably does this because of his huge net worth from an NBA career and numerous businesses. He is basically known for saying that the faster he gets his request, the more the tip. Indeed, the star has demonstrated that he is set on keeping on his promise consistently.

Daily Show host Jon Stewart is another person with the habit of giving off huge tips that are worth focusing on. As per Page Six, Jon had a basic breakfast comprising of espresso and eggs at Juniors in Times Square where he spent between $10 to $20 and left a $105 tip for the server. He had gone there with two of his friends, Richard Alles and John Feal and on seeing him, the host said he resembled Jon Stewart to which he replied “I used to look like him,” followed by a sweet laugh and giggle.

Dana White

UFC president Dana White owns the world’s biggest martial arts association. He has built the company from scratch making it into the enormous organization it is today. The businessman has earned very favorable money from his work and for this reason, offering back is his first concern for him. What’s more, tips don’t terrify Dana by any stretch of the imagination. He once piled up a $1500 note at Empire Asian Restaurant and Lounge in Boston and added a $4000 tip without jumping. Like the staff at Empire, we too would be shocked by such liberality.

Tyler Perry

Celebrities show grace in many different ways, particularly by the way they sprinkle tips in diners. The Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio, Texas probably set up a Michelin-star all-over presentation. This was at some point, in the September of 2017, that prodded Tyler Perry’s fingers to be liberally irritated. After being happy with his $27 order, the acclaimed movie producer gave a $500 cash tip and brought a grin on the woman that served him that night. It was indeed a very joyous moment for the server’s family as her husband posted the event on the Internet implying that the cash could never have come at an ideal time.

Jessica Simpson

The Lavo Ristorante is rumored to be one of the best center points of blue-lace gastronomy in New York. Jessica Simpson’s liberality, at once, was presumably determined by the joy she got from the viands she requested there. The story had it that the multimillionaire singer had $500 worth of their menu’s best yet gave $300 to a woman, who served. The woman didn’t stop there. She left her a note that had more heartfelt words than the tip. She furthermore proceeded to be a sweetheart by signing it. The upscale Italian-style outdoor dining service of the eatery went above the scale because of the server’s elegance and warmth which made Jessica’s visit critical.
