Bloom Accused of Failing to Pay Restaurant Bill

April 29, 2005 03:03:06 GMT

What a shame for actor Orlando Bloom to be accused of failing to settle a $760 restaurant bill, after promising to pay up in January. Yet, he did it. The film star treated his lovely girlfriend Kate Bosworth to a meal at the Casaro Amarelo restaurant in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they'd visited to celebrate her 22nd birthday. Unfortunately, when he wanted to pay the bill, his credit card was refused.

The restaurant's owner Fe Behling explains Bloom was at her restaurant with Kate and about 30 people in January. And yes he not yet paid his bill because there was a problem with credit card system at the restaurant that night. Though, Behling adds "He told us he didn't have a personal email account and so took our address. And although we're sure it's a complete misunderstanding and know he's very busy, we've yet to hear from him."
