The Killers’ Brandon Flowers Thanks Charles Barkley For a $5 Tip He Gave Him 16 Years Ago
Being famous must suck. People are probably never happy with you after an interaction. If you're rich, people want more money from you. And that seems to be the case with the interaction that The Killers' lead singer Brandon Flowers had with Charles Barkley back in the early 2000s!
While performing at the NBA All Star Fan Fest on Saturday night, Flowers spotted Barkely in the crowd and thanked him for a tip he had given him 16 years ago. Flowers was working at a golf course in Las Vegas at the time and cleaned Barkley's clubs. Chuck thanked him with a crisp Lincoln.
While the whole interaction was lighthearted, it definitely made Barkley look like a cheapskate, and it didn't go unnoticed by Shaq, who threw Barkley right under the bus for being cheap when they cut back to the studio!
