We all know celebrities love to enjoy the fruits of their success with luxurious nights out. But during a recent evening at M2 in Chelsea, NYC, Jay-Z’s peeps left the bill unpaid.
Atlantic Records executive Michael Kyser and Universal Music Group’s Shawn Costner took the “99 Problems” rapper and his friends out for a swanky good time. And everything was going well until the bill came.
M2 manager Dan Develin told press, “The waitress has known him for five years, and he’s a good friend of Joey’s, so we ended up comping a lot of their bill. Kyser and Costner were making a big show of wanting to take Jay-Z out, so they started arguing over who got to pick up the check.”
But after Costner’s credit card was declined, Kyser agreed to pay the bill. “Before we could get him to sign the receipt, he left the club. Of course, we still have his card, so we called up his office, and his assistant told us someone would come by to sign. Weeks went by, and no one ever did. Finally, we got a call from AmEx and were told that Kyser was disputing the charge. When we called him up again, his assistant said, ‘Oh, Michael says he doesn’t actually remember being there’—which is crazy because we have his card and photos of him and Jay-Z.”
Getting a jumpstart on her weekend, Rihanna was spotted out and about in Hollywood, California last night (April 16) hitting up a club.
The “Take a Bow” songstress was none-too-thrilled to see shutterbugs in her midst as she made her way inside, sporting a black shirt and denim shorts.
Coming up next month, Ri-Ri is scheduled to make her big return to the stage for the first time since her domestic abuse incident with Chris Brown at the beginning of February.
On May 28th she’ll perform a concert in Dubai, UAE. An event spokesperson told press, “There will be over 25,000 tickets available. They will be going on sale in the next couple of days.”
It’s always interesting to see movie costars fall for each other in real life, but that’s something Shia LaBeouf is guarding against in his work with Megan Fox.
The “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” hotties have plenty of intimate moments on-screen, and Shia recently confessed that he has to have regular reality checks so that he doesn’t fall for his leading lady.
LaBeouf stated, “We have a relationship on-screen but off-screen we are just good friends. You have to create these boundaries and be as respectful as you can.
Shia added, “What’s hard for me is to go from a scene back to reality and then back to boundaries. It’s hard. It’s really hard.”
