Jennifer Lopez has earned many nicknames over the years – everything from Bennifer (when she was with Ben Affleck) to J.Lo.  But in hushed tones in certain beauty salons across Los Angeles, the singer and actress has also been dubbed, Paylo – a reference to what some say it her apparent lack of generosity when it comes to tipping.

In an age when celebrities get so much for free, both goods and services, the etiquette of paying and tipping is clearly being rewritten.  As the very presence of a star at a salon can instantly create a paparazzi frenzy, some celebrities feel that that’s all the tipping they need to do. The deal basically being, “well, you tipped off everybody I was here to tout your biz, so, there’s your tip.”

“Jennifer Lopez thought her friendship paid for the service,” sniped one Beverly Hills beauty expert. “One time she came into a salon and got her eyebrows shaped, hair colored, and a blowout  for free and then left with out tipping anyone,” sputtered the disgruntled beautician.  Another source told Beauty Undercover how she did a beauty treatment on the actress and when it was over, she allegedly got up and simply left the room without leaving a tip.  “I was excited to be working on a celebrity but I was in total shock when she didn’t leave a tip.  I learned first hand why everyone in the salon secretly called her Paylo,” alleged the beauty guru.

    Not cool at all! Bordering on arrogance.

  4. Melissa D says:

    Tipping says so much about a person’s character (or lack thereof), especially when she can afford to be generous. Disappointing, J.Lo!

    For some reason, Jennifer Lopez has always stuck me as a narcissist in all of her relationships. She seems to be saying “you’re just lucky I’m gracing you with my presence”…ick.

  7. Laura says:

    Sorry…there is no excuse of not tipping. In an industry where tipping is how someone makes ends meet, to not tip is he the height of “cheapness”…and to couple that with getting all of their services for free it puts it in a whole nother realm…and not a good one! Shame on you, J Lo.

  8. Sandy says:

    Exactly what I was thinking “Lisa”! Doesn’t surprise me.

    You can take the girl out of the Ghetto, but you can’t take the Ghetto out of the girl. Or something like that.

    I heard about Jennifer’s “tipping” problem a couple of years ago while at the salon I go to in SF. It was confirmed by several people who work there. This salon is popular with locals and local celebrities.

    The salon received a request from JL’s team that she wanted to come in – “now.” Of course, those at the salon were excited. It is a very popular place though so arrangements had to be made which included moving and rescheduling clients. JL arrived with a significant entourage. She was “diva-like” as people describe her but even so, the people working at the salon were impressed it was her. She had a manicure as one of her services. Then she said to give manicures to all of the people she had brought in with her. The manicurist, who I go to, was beyond thrilled to do her nails because he is a big fan and he also did the nails for her entourage.

    But all of the excitement of having this big celebrity in the salon quickly waned when she left w/o not just paying tips, but not paying for the services. Suffice it to say, her names doesn’t fly well in this salon.

  11. I’ve told this story probably 10 times, but my ex’s family was in the movie business. They did some movies with J LO, and said she had so horribly and poorly treated everyone in the crew that they were sure by the end of the movie they were putting these ridiculous outfits on her to make her look even fatter.

    For all those “celebrities” who mistreat movie crew by the way, don’t. I have heard some stories about things done to major A list stars that would blow people’s minds.

    just because someone is hot on some list and in movies song and dance doesn’t mean that she has proper knowledge of fair play. She is Jennifer and most likely thinks life is for her……. Remember money doesn’t buy happiness but it also doesn’t make you have manners…….

  13. Virginia says:

    That SF story is crazy. It seems Paylo is a perfect name.

  14. Monique says:

    Funny, I too, feel some kind of strange vibe coming off of her. She just strikes me as someone who really thinks they are “too good” for everyone. I’ve heard of the demands she’s made on her riders (“star” demands to their contracts) and she’s over the top! 🙁 I think these celebrities should remember WHO makes them famous…US!

  16. Stephanie says:

    I am so tired of all these celebrities getting everything for free. They are the ones that can afford these things, yet are gifted constantly…the least they could do is tip! Very disappointing indeed!

  17. Van Morrison says:

    I utterly agree with Stephanie! Us hard working gals who save up to go to the salon and wait a week or two for our appointments always pay & tip so why shouldn’t celebrities?! If I was the owner of that salon I would not have let her leave without at least tipping! Her “bad mouthing” my salon be damned; she would have definitely paid for ALL services rendered with an attitude like that!

    I am not surprised I found this blog about Paylo and her lack of tipping and divaness. I did a google search to see if anyone else has had similar experiences with her. Well, I waited on her and her entourage when she was married to the choreographer, Cris Judd. They came in to our restaurant to eat and called in advance to let us know she was coming. Our bosses asked not to ask for autographs, etc: fine. I WAS a huge fan of JLo because I am a NewYorican latino like her, both from the Bronx, so I loved her music, videos, etc and was so psyched to see my idol there. Well, she sat there at the table with about 10 people, asked for a few latte’s from me, which I made myself and she liked. She didn’t give a lot of eye contact; no big deal. So towards the very end, when she was almost done, I couldn’t resist anymore and said to her, “Ms. Lopez, I am such a huge fan, and grew up in the Bronx, just like you”… and she gave me this look like “and??”. I was taken aback. I expected her to be a lot friendlier and to make some sort of conversation. I know and understand celebrities sometimes want to be left alone and to be treated like regular people, BUT at the same time, we fans PAY HER SALARY. If not for us, who buy her records, attend her concerts, etc, she would not be where she is now. It gets better! She tipped me alright…. well, her hubby, Cris, got up and found me inside the dining area (this was a outside/inside sort of sidewalk cafe-style restaurant, popular on Ocean Drive) and offered to pay the bill. Well, we include the 15% tip (thank god!!!) in South Beach and he paid with his credit card, didn’t leave an extra tip, which is customary for a larger table and they left and she did not even thank me for my hard work, for making me run back and forth a dozen times and for being a fan!! She just picked up her fat ass and walked away with her hubby, straddling him piggy back and away she went into the sunset. LOL Suffice to say, I am no longer a fan. She could have come in and paid the bill herself, she could have left a 20 percent tip. I have had local bartenders and local celebrities who make less than her tip me more than she did!! I had a table of merry bartenders who got off work, tip me 200 bucks just for catering to them and they weren’t even eating! I just brought tips to their table for 2 hours straight. And JHo, who makes a ton more than us average folks, didn’t even have the audacity to tip me 20 percent? Our restaurant is a popular one, and we were short staffed that day, so I had to run my own food, clean her table and make the drinks! This woman will never get my hard earned money ever again. Thank goodness I went back to college and am no longer a waiter. Waiting tables sucks! It’s hard work and most of the time, patrons are rude and ungenerous. Most patrons don’t understand we get paid very little per hour and make our money on tips. JHO might have grown up in the Bronx with me, but she still is trash, just like most Bronxites. Trust me, most are. I escaped with class and graciousness, which I developed all on my own. I sometimes am embarrassed to admit I grew up in the Bronx, because most people there are classless, loud and trashy. LOL

    JLO used to be very poor, she used to sleep on a tiny rusty bed, with a number of siblings.. I thought she would be more sensitive, and would feel more with the poor and average class people. She’s so rich ok but money can’t buy mercy on people, rich people should help the poor on every possible occasion, like giving tips, even that should be done in secret, no need to show everyone on the table how much she paid, to prevent hurting the waiter’s feeling….. in short she has no heart, but I still blame the beauty salon owner.. come on you earn your money the hard way, you have to pay employees wages, you should’ve charged her full price for the full service she got, fair is fair, she shouldn’t be allowed to walk out the door without paying…. if that upsets her, she can go to hell and never come back to your shop…. she’s rich and still using everyone… come down on earth Paylo.. you’re not any better than anyone of us ordinary people… we have class, we have mercy on people, but you don’t… I don’t like or respect her anymore
