Jean-Claude Van Damme -- 4% Tipper

2/2/2011 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jean-Claude Van Damme dealt a low blow to his waiter at an L.A. nightclub -- tipping only $40 on a $940 bill ... and TMZ has obtained a copy of the receipt.

It all went down at Drai's in Hollywood this past Sunday night. No word on exactly what the former action star ordered ... but upon racking up the hefty tab ... our source says JCVD dropped a tip that amounts to just over 4%.

We're told the wait staff was not pleased. No duh.

In fairness to Van Damme -- he's from abroad. Folks in Brussels don't live by the 15-20 percent rule. Calls to Van Damme and his people weren't returned.

UPDATE: A rep for Drai's says a 15% gratuity was included on Jean-Claude's tab ... and that his $40 was on top of that amount.

We dont tip in Australia at all, unless you are a douche.

Why would someone expect a $150 tip for 2-3 mins work, seriously they should be thankful for getting anything.

Where is the apology you a-holes. You write this crap, and then try to sneak in an update later - which basically means you screwed up the story in the first place just to hurt someone's reputation. You guys are trash.

"Calls to Van Damme and his people weren't returned." Really? You would call someone about something so trivial and pathetic? Does no one who works in the TMZs of the world ever look at their life and realize how low and demeaning their work is? They contribute nothing 'great', nothing proud to look back on. Their children won't look at their parents body of work and be impressed, they will only be embarrassed at BEST. Who are you people, really? The C and D students in school who just couldn't make it into a college?
