Taylor Swift and Brittany Mahomes struck up an unlikely friendship after meeting at a Kansas City Chiefs game last October, where Swift was enthusiastically supporting her new boyfriend, Travis Kelce. However, their differing attitudes towards tipping have recently come under scrutiny, thanks to a viral TikTok video.
Jessica O’Connor, a former hotel worker in California, has accused Brittany Mahomes, wife of Patrick Mahomes, of failing to tip during her stay at a Los Angeles hotel while her husband was absent. O’Connor claimed that Brittany did not leave a tip on a bill exceeding $100 during her week-long stay at 1 Hotel West Hollywood. In contrast, Taylor Swift has a reputation for tipping generously.
During a visit to Gillette Stadium to support Kelce and the Chiefs during their 27-17 victory over the New England Patriots, Taylor Swift was seen displaying her generosity by tipping a kitchen worker in the VIP area. A social media image captured her handing over multiple $100 bills to the staff.
This act of kindness sharply contrasts with the allegations against Brittany Mahomes at 1 Hotel West Hollywood, as described by O’Connor in her TikTok video. O’Connor emphasized that while Brittany was not obligated to tip, being a public figure should make her more mindful of her interactions with others. She expressed her disappointment, stating, “I only judge people based on their character, and I think one of the easiest ways to judge someone’s character is how they treat someone in a position lesser than them. Let’s just say, character assessed.”
