The New York Daily News recently reported that Tyra Banks failed to pay her dinner tab for a dinner at a Brooklyn diner. The supermodel/television host dined with Russell Simmons and his daughters when the dash and dine incident occurred.
Tyra defended herself on her daytime talk show. She claimed the incident was a misunderstanding between herself and Russell about who was going to take care of the bill. Tyra claims she didn’t even realize she had slighted the diner until she read the details in the New York Daily News.
Banks appeared today at the New York establishment to “settle up” her $100 dining debt. Tyra held her head high even with a gaggle of press following her. She reportedly also left an extra $100 tip for her waiter.
