Lance Bass' Boyfriend -- Bad Tipper

7/17/2007 12:49 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lance Bass' new man, Brazilian model citizen Pedro Andrade, stunned one poor bartender at swank NYC club Butter last night, when he ordered more than $70 in drinks and tipped a mere $5 on the beverages. What a cheap date!

"I usually get tipped at least twice that much on that many drinks," the bartender told TMZ, who added that she was grossed out by Andrade's supernaturally orange faux tan. And get this -- Andrade's been a bartender himself, so he should know better!

Lance and Andrade have been locking lips for the last few weeks, and the latest boy-toy on Lance's arm since he split with Reichen Lehmkuhl.

Oh please... I find if so ridiculous when you hear stories about people in Hollywood being bad tippers. A tip is a way to say THANK YOU for good service. Maybe the bartender was rude. Maybe he had to wait 20 minutes for his drinks. Did you have a source watching the interaction? A tip is NOT a given, people. It's too bad that people in the service industry have gotten so spoiled as to rely on tips to pay their bills. Their laziness and lack of foresight is not the public's problem

You are wrong here. The tip should be a percentage of the bill. at leat 15% but in reality 20%. If you had ever worked for tips you would know that. You make the drinks, clean the glasses used, and clean up after the person when they leave.

And why should you, really? The bar is already charging a 500% mark-up. Douches.

Are you crazy?? So the bar is charging a certain amount (your estimate is wrong BTW) What has this got to do with the person waiting on you and cleaning up after you? These types of jobs pay maybe minimum wage if your lucky.

Get out there in the real world.

This boy has been in NYC for years, I remember him from the late 90's - early 00's club NYC club scene (specifically Twilo and Earth) and also as a bartender at the now-defunct xL. So the argument that "brazilians don't tip 20%" is not valid. He knows better! Still, this boy is drool-inducing hot.
