Jean-Claude Van Damme may be a big spender in some areas, but he definitely has little gratitude or gratuity for his servers. TMZ is reporting that the actor didn't give his servers much action after running up a hefty tab. The Web site obtained photographs of Van Damme's bill at Drai's in Hollywood over the weekend. His grand total for a night at the establishment came to a whopping $940. To show his appreciation, he left a measly $40. That translates to roughly 4% in the tip department. Insiders tell TMZ that the staff was hardly pleased with Van Damme's tip... or lack thereof. TMZ points out that Van Damme might have come up short because of a cultural difference. Apparently, he's from Brussels where people don't tip in the 15% to 20% range. Here's a tip for Van Damme - if you're going to be cheap, be discreet.
