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!

#31. Tipping has nothing to do with "telling someone what to do with their money." It has to do with having class and a generous heart. Believe me, people know cheap-ass, no class guys when they see them, and that reputative usually gets around. No one wants to be like that...being a MAN is not being a silly little immature cheap-ass.

Ever think that they already get a paycheck so why should people have to tip???????? It's their job to serve the people at thier tables, booths, Bas etc... and they expect tips. Typical attitude of the wait staff.

I wonder on how many return trips to restaurants where he didn't tip,.. that he is eating someone’s hack.

Michael Jordan is so over. Just another black man in the money caught up in all the swirl. He never had class, just good pr and kick ass talent but as a person he's a jerk.

Divorce is brutal on guys. Even if you are a 100 millionaire. Albeit he's worth a lot less than what is reported.

I worked at a casino that MJ came to pretty often and he was once overheard saying that he does not tip the blackjack dealers because they make enough money. This casino was always comping cigars, drinks and whatever else he requested. They weren't the only people being stiffed either.

Brit is a f*ck up    

Most people who have money don't flaunt it around. The ones that really talk smack about how much $$ they have really don't have that much to begin with. And I agree w/the other post, IT'S HIS $$, HE CAN SPEND AS HE SEES FIT!!

#34. I doubt if you have higher education. You are probably a day-laborer that does not have the brains to do what waiters do. The vast majority of waiters and watresses are going to college. It is part of the understanding when they are hired that they must get tips to continue working as an $85 per week job does not cover cost of college. They do these jobs because it's the ONLY kind of job they can do to work around their scheduled classes. Someday, this folks are going to be your boss, not your server.

#36 You sound like a friggin idiot. Why do you call yourself architect? Do you build mud-pies for a living?

#42 .. I am far from a day laborer. You on the other hand are probably sitting at home on welfare and food stamps. I have a Bachelors Degree while you and # 44 more then likely have no education at all. #44 I work for an architect firm and draw up blue prints so that is what my friends call me. So why don't you and your daddy (#42) get off your buts and get a real job. Stop complaining over what celebrities and other people do and worry about yourselves.
