Kanye West has been unveiled as a very generous tipper by a bartender. A TikTok user, who goes by the name @AnessaRossii, has posted on the video-sharing platform a clip in which she explained how she earned $15,000 tip from the rapper.
While doing her complete makeup on camera, the bartender who works in a strip club detailed their interaction when the “Follow God” spitter stopped by her club, describing his visit as “completely different” from many other famous people who visited the club.
“My club gets a lot of rappers, athletes, people that just want to show up and show out and do things for Instagram but not Kanye. It was completely different,” said @AnessaRossii.
“He didn’t order anything to drink,” the Downtown Los Angeles-based bartender proceeded to share her story, “he just got water on the rocks and proceeded to tell me all of his beliefs, where we descended from, and how he believed that a true descendant of his creator.”
She additionally claimed that Kanye gave her the enormous tip after she listened to his four-hour talk about his beliefs.
“His conversation went on with me for about three or four hours and he told me at the end of the night, thank you for my time, gave me $15,000 and said he felt he was called to do this and left,” she concluded her story. “That’s the last time I’ve ever seen him.”
In the caption of the video which was set to Kanye’s “Gold Digger,” the bartender noted that her encounter with the Atlanta-born MC happened years ago. “This wasn’t recent, this was a few years ago,” so she wrote.
After watching @AnessaRossii’s video, some people understood Kanye’s need for someone to talk to. “My guy just needed a listening ear, I’m glad she gave that to him,” one fan commented on the story. Another echoed, “He need someone to talk to lol.”
Agreeing, a third person wrote, “that’s lit There are a lot of older people that do this too. Some people just wanna talk !!!! And it’s especially different talking to a stranger vs. someone you know.”
Someone else weighed in, “I honestly think the reason went past a few ppl. It’s not for her to brag on herself, but to show a side of Kanye to us. The fact that he didn’t want to be seen, be flashy, wasn’t there to get lap dances. He just needed to vent & he said he felt like he was meant to talk to her that night. The story was respectful, nobody was put on blast. Just showing a guy that can be erratic being humble and normal.”
Some others praised Yeezy for his generous tip, with one quipping, “Atleast he tip nice lmaooo.” Another dubbed the 43-year-old designer “a good guy,” while one other thought it “MUST B NICE” to get the tip.
