Tyler Perry dines with Janet Jackson, leaves $500 tip

Tyler Perry and Janet Jackson had dinner in San Antonio and left a Texas-sized tip: $500.

The meal for the friends at vegetarian restaurant Green Vegetarian Cuisine only cost $27, according to MySanAntonio.

Blanca Vasquez shared an Instagram photo of Perry and Jackson at the restaurant, which, according to the post, appears to be owned by her friend. 

“Janet Jackson and Tyler Perry went to my friends restraunt (sic)!! Left a 500.00 tip omg I so wish I was there!!” she captioned the photo.

Luis Cantu told mySA.com that his wife, Nicole Tijerina, works as a waitress at Green Vegetarian Cuisine and was “blessed” by Perry’s tip.

“It feels good to have something unexpectedly come back our way,” Cantu said. “It really helped us out a lot.”

Perry’s generosity is well-known. In a Facebook video posted Aug. 31, he announced he would donate $1 million to Hurricane Harvey relief.
