Jason Derulo was mistaken for Usher at a Las Vegas hotel, which subsequently turned into a physical dispute.
When two men called Derulo “Usher,” the artist attacked them. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that police were called to the ARIA hotel early on Tuesday morning after Derulo got physical with the men.
Onlookers shared that Derulo and one of the men were passing each other on escalators when one of the two men trolled Derulo, yelling out, “Hey, Usher! F* you, b*h!” The “Watcha Say” artist responded by punching the man in the face, which resulted in him falling on the floor.
According to TMZ, Derulo laid hands on the second man, and security was called to break up the fight. At the time Derulo was walking with a larger man, presumed to be his bodyguard.
At the time the two men who provoked Derulo did not press charges. Derulo was removed from the ARIA property.
Injuries sustained from the incident did not require hospital visits. Derulo’s team has yet to comment on the situation.
