(Newser) – Britney Spears got into hot water yesterday when TMZ reported that she'd left a California Cheesecake Factory on Sunday—doggie bag in hand—without paying her bill. But the singer's team quickly explained that Spears thought her security guard paid, while the guard thought Britney paid, and that Brit felt "horrible" about the mistake. So, TMZ reports today, Spears plans to return and not only pay the $30 bill, but bring her waitress a $100 tip. Click for 13 more celebrities who are big tippers.

Do stars pay for their own food? Or is she trying a fast one? Newser Community

Honest mistakes often happen to real people. I doubt she was hard up for the cash but blaming the security isn't right either as security doesn't handle financial transactions.

Unfortunately she, like a few others, think that their mere presence is payment enough and she shouldn't be bothered to actually pay for what she consumes/takes. Note that the article says "she plans to return" to pay the bill and leave a tip, not that she did return.and pay the bill or leave a tip.
