Britney Spears Skips Out On Her Cheesecake Factory Bill

The pop star has a mix up at the restaurant.

Britney Spears dined out at a local Cheesecake Factory Sunday evening with boyfriend David Lucado and her bodyguard.

When the $30 bill came at the end of their meal, the pop superstar was under the impression that her bodyguard would be taking care of the bill. Conversely, Spears’ bodyguard thought that Spears would be paying for their dinner.

Their miscommunication resulted in them leaving without paying. However, they quickly realized their error and returned to the Thousand Oaks, California restaurant to pay the bill as well as leave their waitress a $100 tip for the error.

The restaurant’s Senior Director of Public Relations, Aletha Rowe, says there are no hard feelings about Spears’ mistake. “Britney dines in our restaurants quite often and is a wonderful guest. We know that this was just an honest mistake.”
