Jim Jones

I Dropped $20k on Champagne

Rapper Jim Jones dropped $20,000 at a NYC nightclub last weekend -- buying 32 bottles of champagne ... and after that, dude hooked up his server with a PHAT ASS tip ... TMZ has learned. 

The "We Fly High" rapper took over Greenhouse on Saturday night to throw a little birthday shindig for a good friend ... and apparently, money was no object.

Jim ordered 32 bottles of Moet Nectar Rose champagne -- totaling around $20k -- and after he was all bubbled out, he stacked on an extra $6,000 as a tip.

We spoke with Jones ... who tells us "We did 32 bottles because it was my man's bday, and where he's from you pop a bottle for every year of your birth, and that's exactly what we did for him."

BALLIN'!!!!

This story was planted by a publicist. That champagne RETAILS for $50 a bottle or less so even if they tripled the price he would spend less than $5,000. Please they're trying to make him look like a baller. HAHA

Broadcasting people's business again, TMZ? What if the server didn't tell other employees about the tip's size or wanted to keep it from the IRS. Bunch of dirty snitches!!!

Someone should call the POlice because he got ripped off for $25,500 bucks! Moet? That sells in the grocery store for $15 a bottle. He probably doesn't know that though because he only has Korean owned liquor stores in his hood that sell that same bottle for $500 if they use their EBT card. Otherwise, they'll charge them $60...0+ for bottle service like this club did. Only, at the liquor store, that just gets you a brown paper bag and the right to drink it in front of the elementary school, homie.
