Drew Brees’s small tip never happened, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback said on Twitter this week.
A few days ago, a website posted an image of a receipt of a California restaurant where the New Orleans Saints quarterback dined, showing that he tipped $3 on a $74.41 bill, according to Fox Sports.
Brees caught wind of the report, which was published on The Dirty, and went on Twitter to clear up the controversy.
“In case anyone still cares about this report: I tipped $3 on a takeout order. Had we sat down it would have been 20%,” he wrote.
The Dirty, the same website that published scandalous sex chats with Anthony Weiner and a 22-year-old woman, gave an update.
“I want to make it every clear to management at Del Mar Rendezvous that Carissa DID NOT submit this receipt of cheapo Drew Brees. Contacts at the restaurant have told me you will be meeting with her tonight to discuss termination. Drew Brees is the 3 dollar tipper, don’t fire her because of his actions.- nik,” the website said.
The tipster who wrote in to The Dirty originally said, “Check out what a cheap ass New Orleans Saints QB Drew Brees is.”
