Kendall Jenner hit back at a viral news story alleging that she stiffed her bartender during a party on Aug. 3.

"Damn, I guess next time we won't tip in cash," the reality TV star and model posted on her Twitter.

Jenner's tweet was in response to a message one Twitter user wrote that said, "I love [Kendall Jenner] I'm sure there's more to this story. Everyone's so quick to judge cause she's part of the Kardashians."

Despite the 21-year-old's insistence that she did indeed leave a cash tip, a Brooklyn bar called Baby's All Right sparked the rumor when it posted a photo to Instagram of the model's $24 bill, which she signed but left the tip and total sections blank.

"Don't forget to tip your bartender," reads the caption, according to BuzzFeed.

The post has since been deleted, and the bar has not commented publicly on whether Jenner did indeed tip in cash, if she received subpar service or if she simply stiffed them.

Jenner has come under fire in the past for her tipping habits. In 2014, when she was 18, Jenner was dining with her friend, model Hailey Baldwin, in New York's Mercer Kitchen, when Jenner reportedly was displeased that the staff members wouldn't serve her alcohol because she was underage, according to Page Six.

"Kendall got up and left and didn't pay for all the food ... about $60 worth, and without a tip," an anonymous source who said they witnessed the whole scene told Page Six at the time.

At that point, their server ran out after them to ask them to pay their bill, the story goes.

"Kendall and Hailey started laughing," said the source. "Kendall took a couple of $20 bills out of her wallet, threw them at the server and walked away, not even counting if it was enough or if it included a tip."

The waitress then wrote on Twitter that she had to run out for her tip and got money thrown at her.

However, both Jenner's and Baldwin's reps have denied the allegations about the bill.

"Although you are working as a waitress at Mercer Kitchen, I understand you are also a struggling actress," Jenner's lawyer, Marty Singer, wrote in a letter to the waitress, who played a character on MTV's U.S. version of "Skins," according to TMZ. "You no doubt concocted a fictionalized account of your encounter with my client in order to create publicity for yourself."

Baldwin's rep said that the pair "thought everything was paid for" when they left, according to Page Six.

"Kendall was polite and asked, 'Does this cover it?'" the rep added. "They didn't run."
