Singer Ne-Yo allegedly pulled a dine and dash, according to the New York Daily News.

He and his crew reportedly racked up an $800 bill at a West Village eatery, then played musical chairs with the check, passing it around the table and ultimately leaving the server with no payment — and no tip — after she was “run ragged.”

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

The restaurant manager tried to catch up with Ne-Yo and company at a nearby club, but his bodyguards reportedly said he was too busy to get his credit card. Must be nice.FeaturesGossipNe-Yo
