Kendall Jenner

Threatens to Sue Waitress

Over Inadvertent Dine and Dash

8/14/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0813-kendall-jenner-tmz-01Kendall Jenner claims she's been defamed by a waitress who said the 18-year-old threw money in her face ... and she's threatening to sue.

TMZ has obtained a letter from Kendall's lawyer, admitting Jenner was indeed at Mercer Kitchen last week and that she accidentally skipped out on the bill. 

But legal pitbull Marty Singer says the rest of the waitress' story is a pack of lies. The waitress tweeted she chased Kendall down the street to get the money and Jenner threw it in her face.

Singer says in the letter ... what actually happened was that the waitress did come up to her outside but Jenner was "extremely apologetic" and gladly paid what she owed -- $33, plus a $7 tip ... which she "politely handed" to her. 

Singer says, "Although you are working as a waitress at Mercer Kitchen, I understand you are also a struggling actress," adding, "You no doubt concocted a fictionalized account of your encounter with my client in order to create publicity for yourself."

Perhaps Marty Singer might want to explain why his client left without paying at all? It's totally irrelevant whether or not the waitress' story is right or not. If Singer's client at ANY point left a restaurant without paying, then his client being "apologetic" or anything else is redundant. A thief is thief. The courts don't give you a "oh but I'm a clueless celeb" pass, and rightly so. I own a restaurant, I don't have a sign on my store saying "pay if you like, not if you don't, but hey, if you imagine that you're a celebrity, then feel free to leave without paying, ". You apologizing to the paparazzi means nothing. You and your ego have still trashed my business nationally, globally. Who the hell do you think you are?

P*ss right off, "celebs". $100 tips? who cares. Your days of buying cheap and worthless "respect" are over.

If you want real respect, you're going to have to earn it like everyone else does.

This girl is SO DUMB it's not even funny. She barely finished high school and has no plans for college. STUPID enough to sue over something like this. For fun, they should ask her to spell SUE.

Everyone must be very proud of picking on a teenager. I almost walked out without paying once because I was working on a big project and completely focused on that. Things like this happen, give the girl a break.

I believe the waitress...Kendall and her Kylie are a couple of little self entitled and self absorbed brats! Kris really needs to discipline those two.

Let me get this Straight. Kendall is going to Sue a Waitress that her Lawyer admits to be struggling Financially, so Kendall wants money from her. Kendall wants to go in front of a Jury, and tell them to give her money, because Kendal skipped out on a tab. The Waitress story is more Believable, and the waitress should counter Sue Kendall, and let the Jury award her lots of Kardashian Money.
