Ne-Yo

I'm Too Rich

to Dine and Ditch

Ne-Yo has way too much money to stiff some restaurant on a bill ... despite accusations he bailed on a $800 tab in NYC last month ... the singer tells TMZ.

Ne-Yo was out at LAX last night when we asked about allegations he racked up an $800 bill with his friends at a West Village restaurant called Negril ... then skipped on the bill ... and tip.

Ne-Yo tells us, "Anybody that knows me knows that I don't have to dine and ditch ... $800, seriously?"

Crazier things have happened.

It's not a matter of money, it's a matter of honor. This punk has no.

Give him a few more years and he'll have to skip out on an $8 bill since he'll be broke like all the other washed up rappers.

Love the food at that restaurant but it's so expensive I can understand why he'd dine and ditch. He probably just ordered a plate of jerk chicken and some rum punch.

He is not a rapper, despite the stereotype. However, he is a singer, actor, songwriter, and producer. His net worth is $170 million. He has written hit songs for Beyonce, Chris Brown, and others including the sound track for Disney's Princess and the Frog and Pitch Perfect. He starred as an actor in Battle Los Angeles and CSI plus many other movies/TV shows. So stop being jealous idiots.

I'll bet a sleeve of vanilla creams this clown has several baby mommas who want child support, a suspended license, pending weapons charge and a bankruptcy within 5 years.

Straight out of the proud black male handbook.

You see these articles from time to time where someone with a small amount of fame thinks they're too good to pay their bill.
