Drew Brees is fighting back, and disputing the claim that he’s an awful tipper.
Brees, who is one the richest athletes in professional sports, caught some flak on Tuesday after reportedly leaving a $3 tip on a $74 bill.
Brees was having none of that, and took to Twitter to defend himself. Brees made it known that his order was take-out, and had he dined in, the tip would have been 20%.
In case anyone still cares about this report: I tipped $3 on a takeout order. Had we sat down it would have been 20%+ http://t.co/Ktfnnl10pX

If this true, can we assume that someone made a huge mistake leaking this receipt, or was Brees because of his stature, supposed to leave a tip regardless?
The owner of Del Mar Rendezvous issued a written statement apologizing for allowing a customer’s receipt to be shown to the world.
the owner also Reportedly made a large donation to the quarterback’s ”Brees Dream Foundation.”

A SAINT AFTER ALL?
Saints quarterback Drew Brees took to Twitter in an attempt to set the record straight over the accusation that he left a waitress a horrible tip.
First, it looks like THE DIRTY is about to get the waitress fired.
I want to make it every clear to management at Del Mar Rendezvous that Carissa DID NOT submit this receipt of cheapo Drew Brees. Contacts at the restaurant have told me you will be meeting with her tonight to discuss termination. Drew Brees is the 3 dollar tipper, don’t fire her because of his actions.- nik
Drew Brees says he's amazed his $3 tip on a $74 takeout order last month has become a talking point on national television and the Internet.
The quarterback was in the locker room at Saints headquarters Thursday morning when he noticed a discussion on a network morning show about tipping on takeout orders, referencing a photograph of his takeout receipt that was circulated online...
Drew Brees isn't a cheapskate.
A couple of days ago, a website posted a photo a receipt from a dinner the Saints quarterback had at an establishment in Del Mar, Calif. And as the photo above illustrates, Brees tipped $3 on a $74.41 bill. Not quite 20 percent.
But wait, hold everything. Brees took to Twitter on Wednesday to clear up the issue:
In case anyone still cares about...
Nik Richie, of TheDirty.com fame, does not discriminate when it comes to outing the lowlifes of America. This includes beloved Saints quarterback Drew Brees, who Richie confirmed left a $3.00 tip on a $74.41 tab at Del Mar Rendezvous in Del Mar, California, earlier this month. Based on reports of the waitress being fired for publicly outing Brees’ stinginess, Richie released a...
I bartended and waited tables to put myself through college, so this is always a sensitive subject for me. I’m guessing this was a to-go order or maybe Drew threw down some cash as well. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt as he has always seemed like a guy who gives back. Here is CC receipt in question C/O TerezOwens. FYI, that server probably doesn’t have a job...
Drew Brees may donate millions to charity and host fundraisers for cancer patients, but apparently stiffing one California waitress is enough to overshadow all those pesky good deeds and earn him the label of “cheap bastard”, according to one absurd website. The Dirty posted a receipt leaked by someone from Del Mar Rendezvous restaurant, which claims to show Brees left a $3...
I can’t believe this is still a thing, or was even a thing in the first place, but Drew Brees caught some flack yesterday for leaving a $3 tip on a $74 bill about a month ago. Some ass-hat who works at a the Del Mar Rendezvous Chinese fusion restaurant in California snapped a picture of the receipt and posted it on Reddit, but failed to mention the receipt...
We can all breath a sigh of relief. Drew Brees is a good tipper. The infamous bill indicating otherwise was for a take-out order.
Rest-assured, Saints fans. Everything we always thought we knew about Drew Brees turns out to be totally true. There was a mini-uproar this week when a waitress claimed Brees stiffed her on a tip for a $75 bill. A copy of the receipt was posted on the website, “The Dirty.” Turns out, it was only part of the story. The bill was actually for a takeout order, which means even...
The Atlanta Falcons are using stats and rivalry to promote green living. Wonder how Drew Brees feels about recycling right about now?
(via Getty Image)Between Aaron Hernandez’s murder charges, Riley Cooper’s open invitation for safeties to decapitate him and even Johnny Manziel supposedly lowering his draft stock for being a typical college bro, I thought that the NFL’s writers who don’t like doing actual reporting on teams and players and simply prefer sticking to moral brow-beating and soap box finger...
