If you needed another reason to LOVE Donnie Wahlberg, we have one for ya. Not only is he part owner of WAHLBURGERS, not only is he in NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK, not only is he married to the beloved Jenny McCarthy….but he’s also a generous tipper! The bill was $82.60 and Donnie left a $2,000 tip at a Waffle House in Charlotte while he was there for a New Kids show.
He posted a picture of it and said, “My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars, for years! So, when I walk into a Waffle House, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at Waffle House in Charlotte.”
Then he did a Facebook LIVE from the Waffle House. He was sitting with a Blue Bloods fan named Jasmine…then he gave her backstage passes and tickets to a New Kids On The Block Show. What a guy!
It turns out it’s not just Shia Labeouf that is in trouble with the law. DMX was arrested for evading over $1.7 million dollars in taxes.
Apparently, Earl Simmons was part of a multi-year scheme to hide a bunch of money from the authorities and now he owes a BUNCH of money in taxes.
