Warhol: lazy and cheap?

New York Post - - NEWS -

ANDY Warhol was not an early riser, and he was tight with a dol­lar, his plas­tic sur­geon re­calls.

Dr. Pamela Lip­kin spoke at the fund-rais­ing gala for Les Couleurs, a char­ity founded by two Lithua­nian émi­grés, Aura Copeland and Ram­inta Li­laite, that sup­ports chil­dren from un­der­priv­i­leged back­grounds and pro­motes arts pro­grams in Haitian or­phan­ages.

“Andy Warhol, who was a client in the ’80s, would call in the mid­dle of the night and ask if he could come over to get col­la­gen in­jec­tions,” Lip­kin said. “When I sug­gested he come in the morn­ing be­fore I op­er­ate, he was not pleased.”

The pop artist was char­ac­ter­is­ti­cally close-fisted with the doc­tor: “He would also al­ways try to ne­go­ti­ate my fee for some­thing lower.”
