Tip me baby one more time!

Britney Spears accidentally skipped out on her bill at the Cheesecake Factory on Sunday – but she made up for it later by giving her waitress a generous tip, TMZ reports.

Reps for the singer told TMZ she feels “horrible” about the incident, which was an honest mistake. After Spears and her boyfriend David Lucado finished their $30 meal, she asked her bodyguard to pay on her behalf, but a miscommunication kept that from happening.

When the singer (who left the restaurant with a doggy bag) realized what had happened, she paid her check – and left the waitress a $100 tip.

The Cheesecake Factory tells PEOPLE in a statement there’s no hard feelings and Spears is no “Criminal.”

“Britney dines in our restaurants quite often and is a wonderful guest,” the senior director of public relations, Alethea Rowe, said. “We know that this was just an honest mistake.”
