Ne-Yo And Friends Rack Up An $800. Restaurant Tab In New York Then Reportedly Left With NO Payment Or Tip

Ne-Yo decides to remix Kendrick Lamar’s #1 song ‘HUMBLE’. "Was in the studio and that Kendrick came on, so I decided to try something just for fun,” wrote Ne-Yo. Stream it up top and let us know what you think.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Ne-Yo and pals allegedly had an $800 night at a West Village restaurant and left no payment or tip.

Hey Ne-Yo, here’s a tip — leave one next time. And pay your bill while you’re at it.

The Grammy winner spent an evening dining with a group of 10 earlier this month at West Village restaurant Negril, where he sipped on multiple Grey Goose screwdrivers and ordered mac and cheese and chicken plates, racking up an $800 bill. But the “Sexy Love” singer allegedly walked out without paying a dime — or giving his overworked waitress a tip.

“We had a Monday Night Football thing, the Giants were in, too, and Ne-Yo came in with [road manager] Jayvon Smith, a group of girls, some guys and a bodyguard,” one eyewitness tells Confidenti@l. “He was ordering all this stuff and he kept asking people what they want, and kept the drinks coming.”

Even though the waitress on Ne-Yo duty was “run ragged” by his needy group, our tipster tells us she was overly helpful and enthusiastic toward the singer and his crew.

“The waitress was really sweet, she even helped his bodyguard, who sat at the bar while the group ate,” says the source. “She’s smiling like she’s going to get a good tip and she ends up looking for him after no one paid the bill.”

According to our source, Ne-Yo’s server took the check over to his table when the group looked like they were about to leave — only to have them start arguing over who would foot the bill.

“She asked specifically, ‘Is it okay if everyone is on your check?’ and he said, ‘Yes,” says our source. “She hands it to him, he hands it to his manager, his manager hands it to another guy in the group, who hands it back to Ne-Yo.”

Negril's manager reportedly pursued Ne-Yo's group to a nearby lounge to get payment, but was rebuffed by his bodyguard.

But the game of keep-away wasn’t over yet. Our source says Ne-Yo then handed it back to Smith, who walked out, got in a waiting SUV with the singer and drove off.

After discovering the group was headed to the Griffin to party some more, the manager of Negril walked to the nearby Gansevoort St. lounge to see if anyone in the party would please pay the bill.

“Someone in the group promised they’d be back tomorrow to pay up, then Ne-Yo’s bodyguard was trying to block the manager,” another source tells us. “He said ‘Ne-Yo is busy, I’m not going to get his credit card right now.’ ”

We’re told Ne-Yo, who named one album “Year of the Gentleman,” remains anything but. Our source says he has yet to pay the bill or a tip.

“The waitress was so upset,” says our first source. “She looked like she was working so hard.”

A rep for Ne-Yo did not respond to questions by deadline.

Ain't no need to scream or shout folks.  Just take the case down to Manhattan State Superior Court, double the tab, add on legal fees, penalty, and an inconvenience fee for not paying.  Besides it is a crime to run out and not pay your check.  By the time you add up all the additional penalties and fees, the entire crew will be looking at several thousand in costs - which they will have to pay immediately once found guilty.

Definitely not a smart group of peeps.  Crazy thing about it is that only a few of them were in on the scheme. and the rest were screwed over.  Ne Yo and his boys probably ran up someone else's tab (who said meet me up at Negril), and then had it all plan to split. That's some foul $hit!!

What!? This guy did this to NEGRIL, a black run restaurant ?!? And to run up an $800 tab and Negril, means 

they eat and drank like they could do that is just plain see, when they make money 

they think they can do anything and get away with it, they think they are above the law.

Wow. And businesses usually give celebrities discounts or free stuff, but quick to over charge regulars. Their the ones with the money!
