Bad Tipping Takes the Air Out of Jordan

7/18/2008 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jordan is worth about $400 million, but he doesn't use a dime of that to tip on his bill at a popular Vegas nightclub. Still wanna be like Mike?

Sources tell us MJ frequently visits a very upscale Vegas hotspot and gets comped more often than not. But even with the free bubbly, MJ isn't opening up his wallet. Nike must not pay what it used to!

For his part, Air Jordan shelled out $168 mil for his divorce from Juanita. And apparently he's trying to get that money back, one abandoned tip at a time!

He does the same thing @ Harrahs casino in new orleans. He is notorious down here as the absolute worst tipper.

I remember seeing Charles Barkley on Oprah a few years back. He was talking about his friends and brought up what a cheap ass MJ was. CB was laughing when he said that MJ's "tip" to servers, etc. was to get a better job.

Used to deal to him at the local Casino. This guy is a dirty, cheap pig! Every service person in the world should know we should look at it as an honor to serve him and if you're really lucky(unlucky), he'll ask to meet you in his limo so you can give air jordan a b.j.!

wtf    

Michael Jordan is known to be cheap and a bad tipper. My cousins bf works as a security guard in Vegas and saw Barkley and Jordan there and Barkley was going to tip a security guard 100 bucks but Jordan stopped him and told him that their presence was the biggest tip. Charles Barkley even said on Oprah that Michael Jordan was cheap!

Yeah, I used to work at a golf course in Arizona that he came to frequently. He always wanted something that the other golfers weren't getting and asking for special orders from the restaurant. He never once tipped me a dollar!! He used to bring out his prostitutes to the golf course as well - this was when he was still married! And have the bag guys driver her out to him and she would follow him around in a separate golf cart. He would go into the restaurant after golf and she would sit a couple of tables away from him. Horrible tipper and not a very nice guy either - too bad.

THAT BROTHER IS SO CHEAP HE WOULDN'T TIP IF HIS SORRY CHEAP ASS DEPENDED ON IT, BUT IT IS OK TO GAMBLE AWAY TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN CASINOS. I AM GLAD THAT HIS EX WIFE TOOK HIM FOR A BIG TIME PAYOFF

A server makes $2.13 an hour, in Texas anyway, and the restaurants/bars EXPECT them to make tips to survive. My daughter is trying to work her way thru school and believe me, sometimes the richest eaters/drinkers, are the cheapest. These servers barely survive!

This "man" has NO CLASS. Just a dumb-ass stingy bastard. Hope his wife gets more than half. So he can play basketball. That is a no-brain athelete.
