Ryan Seacrest

Drops a $10,000 Tip

7/9/2010 5:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Talk about spreading the wealth ... TMZ has learned Ryan Seacrest dropped more than $50,000 on a super-fancy dinner in Sardinia last night ... including a $10,000 tip!

Tip
Our top sources in Sardinia -- yeah, we've got those -- tell us Seacrest and his chick Julianne Hough attended an ultra-ritzy dinner at the famous Billionaire Club for some kind of a business dinner. 

We're told Seacrest picked up the check for everyone involved in the sit-down -- which included several people at multiple tables -- and the grand total came out to just over $41,000 ... plus the $10k tip.

As for what "business" was being discussed -- sources tell us it may have been linked to the fact that Ryan's radio deal is up at the end of the year ... or possibly a deal with CBS.

Its funny how people always have to bring negative comments in a story. Unless you know for a fact he is gay then keep comments to your self! We do NOT really know these people so its easy for people to judge. I am sure Julianne Hough does not need money because she makes her own. JMO

UM, didn't he take Teri Hatcher out to the beach for a planned video-taped smooch fest and immediately humilated and dumped her after getting a shot of him kissing a gulp 'woman' ...not too long ago?

You have got to be kidding me!!!!!!!!!!

No server can ever work hard enough to deserve a $10,000.00 tip in one night unless all of the patrons got to run a train on her in the coat check room, but only if she gave them each the "girlfriend experience".

The worst thing about it is that the high price of the bill was most likely the result of expensive bottles of wine which the server has nothing to do with. Why should a server get 10% of a vintners exceptional vintage?

TMZ, have you checked out the gay bars in Sardinia? That´s probably where Seacrest spent the night after this farce was over. Get your "sources" on it.

How much could he have earned on Idol all these years. A few million a year, maybe? Plus his radio show is big. Good for his generous behavior!

Poor Ryan...little does he know: 1. American Idol is going belly-up because the main man left. 2. He's the Exe. Producer of the Kardashian debacle and their fifteen minutes are up. 3. Julianne won't put out because she's Morman. Ryan had better save his money!
