Los Angeles: Singer Britney Spears gave a $100 tip to a waiter after he helped to calm her five-year-old son Jayden as the child started crying in a restaurant.

The singer was eating out at a restaurant in San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles with Jayden and six-year-old son Sean, when her younger one began to cry and wouldn`t stop.

However, an employee saw the problem and brought over crayons to distract Jayden. The singer was quite impressed and gave him a generous gift after she finished her meal, reports conctactmusic.com.

"Britney just couldn`t calm her tyke down. But a sympathetic waiter, not one assigned to her table, helped save the day when he came over with a box of crayons and started drawing animation action characters. Jayden`s tears dried up instantly as he and his brother got totally absorbed and happy," an onlooker told nationalenquirer.com.
