Was Ellen DeGeneres confronted by a waitress at a coffee shop for not leaving a tip? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids. Find out the truth below!

According to the National Enquirer, the talk show host recently walked out of a Los Angeles cafe she frequents without leaving a tip. As the magazine’s story goes, DeGeneres also left without tipping on a second occasion, at which time her regular waitress supposedly said, “Hey, Ellen, aren’t you forgetting something?”

The outlet goes on to purport that DeGeneres responded by turning around, waving and saying, “Oh, right… buh-bye!” Despite how few details the tabloid provides in backing up this tale, Gossip Cop still checked in with a reliable source close to the talk show host, who laughed off the report and assured us it never happened.

Of course, the Enquirer has published countless fake news stories about DeGeneres, so this latest fabrication comes as no surprise. Gossip Cop previously busted the publication for wrongly reporting that DeGeneres’ staff was planning to revolt against her. We also called out the magazine for falsely alleging DeGeneres has a drinking problem. There was no truth to either of those claims, and the same goes for this latest one.
