'Savage Love' singer Jason Derulo allegedly attacked two men in the lobby of a Las Vegas casino on Tuesday, January 4, one of whom called him 'Usher' and shouted 'f**k you b***h' at him. In a now-viral video, the singer, 32, can be seen pouncing on the men at the Aria Resort and Casino as he comes off an escalator. A voice from the crowd can be heard saying, "Ayo, why did you slap him, dawg?”, following which another person shouts "Hey Usher, f**k you b***h", referring to another recording artist called Usher.

It is not clear whether the man really mistook Derulo for Usher or was simply pointing out at the two stars' resemblance. The insult, however, angered Derulo, who jumped over a security rope and punched the man. At this point, bodyguards and other people tried to intervene. Derulo also attacked another man and engaged in a brawl on the ground as people try to tear the two apart. The man who recorded the video can be heard shouting, “WTF! Don’t touch my boy!”

In a separate video posted by a user on his Instagram stories, Derulo can be seen being taken away in handcuffs, but it is unclear whether charges were issued against him by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The singer was subsequently removed from the property and issued a no trespassing charge, according to TMZ. The men who were attacked suffered facial wounds but did not have to be hospitalized.
