Singer Jason Derulo was handcuffed after attacking two men at the lobby of a Vegas casino on Tuesday, January 4.
It was gathered that one of the men shouted “f–k you bitch” at him and called him “Usher”. A video shared online, showed the 32-year-old crooner pouncing on the hecklers at the Aria Resort and Casino while coming off an escalator and passing a group of onlookers who had taken out their phones to capture their brush with the musician on video.
Someone in the crowd was heard shouting, “Ay, why did you slap him, dawg?” and then a separate voice yells “Hey Usher, f–k you, bitch!” in an apparent reference to another recording artist, Usher.
It was unclear whether the heckler really thought Derulo was Usher or was making a wisecrack about the two music stars’ resemblance, but the profane statement seemed to set Derulo off. He hopped over a security rope and allegedly punched the man, forcing bodyguards and several other people in the area to try to intervene.
The singer was also seen attacking another man and tussling with him on the ground as more people try to tear them apart. The man recording the video shouted, “WTF! Don’t touch my boy!” as he backed away.
In a separate video posted by social media user @christian_labare8, Derulo appears to be taken away in handcuffs. Christian told Page Six that Derulo did not do anything to start the fight.
Though the “Swalla” singer was cuffed, it is unclear if the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued any charges against him.
