This week, rumors swirled claiming reality star Kendall Jenner proved to be a ‘mean girl’ after a waitress alleged that she threw money in her face after being denied booze.
A source closed to the waitress, Blaine Morris, told the New York Post that she wasn’t happy with Jenner’s outrageous behavior during a lunch date with Hailey Baldwin at Mercer Kitchen in New York City on Monday.
After the 18-year-old was denied alcohol, Jenner allegedly threw a fit. It was then, the teenagers decided to dine and dash, leaving the restaurant without paying a $60 tap – which Morris reportedly had to chase after them.
The source adds, “Kendall took a couple of $20 bills out of her wallet, threw them at the server and walked away, not even counting if it was enough or if it included a tip.” But the drama didn’t stop there, Blaine wasted no time to rant about Jenner’s nasty attitude on Twitter.
Though the tweet has since been deleted, Morris (who is a former SKINS actress) tweeted; “That horrible moment you chase a Kardashian down the street because she forgot to pay her bill to be thrown money in your face.”
However, that tweet didn’t go unnoticed. Jenner responded to Morris denying that incident ever happened — all while threatening to take legal action against her.
“These rumors are absolutely ridiculous! I would never throw money in anyone’s face or act that disrespectfully. I was raised better than that,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star wrote. “Said it once and I’ll say it again, don’t believe everything you read!”
Hailey‘s rep also denied the rumors, saying “They thought everything was paid for. Kendall was polite and asked ‘Does this cover it?’ [no one ran away].”
Now, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” legal team (including powerhouse attorney Martin Singer) are demanding that the actress-turned-waitress (Blaine Morris) to issue an “appropriate retraction and sincere apology” for a tweet that led to reports of their client ‘behaving badly’ at the NY eatery, reports E!
“As you know, when you waited on my client at Mercer Kitchen last week, there was no issue with service whatsoever,” Singer wrote in a letter to Morris. “[Jenner] inadvertently forgot to take care of the bill before walking out.”
“There was absolutely no scene as described in the Statements and the Tweet,” Singer went on to say that Jenner politely handed Morris $40.
“Although you are working as a waitress…I understand that you are also a struggling actress whose credits include a handful of television appearances,” Singer continued.
“You no doubt concocted a fictionalized account of your encounter with my client in order to create publicity for yourself and raise your own public profile.”
Morris has not commented or issued any apology regarding the incident. But for all we know, Morris just revived her acting career with this ‘scandalous’ publicity stunt.
