R&B superstar Usher has come under fire on Twitter for reportedly spraying fake money with his own name and face on it at a strip club. Although the club has told Page Six it’s all a big misunderstanding.
Tagged “Ushbucks” by one wag on the social media site, the cash, in denominations of $100, $20, and $1, was previously seen on Usher’s official social media channels stuffed in a see-through suitcase on April 3.

The issue began with a particular woman going by beel0ove on Instagram, who posted pics of the money to her private account Monday.
Another friend of hers then shared it, tagging both the strip club Sapphire Las Vegas, and gossip site The Shade Room, who later shared it to their own Instagram.
From there, the star’s supposed attempt at usher-ing in his own form of currency quickly spread across social media, trending on Twitter by Monday afternoon.
However, reached for comment by Page Six via email, Sapphire’s director of marketing, George M. Wilson, IV told us, “Usher was a true gentleman and a great guest at the club.
“He and his crew converted thousands of real dollars to tip the girls dancing on the stage,” and “left a generous tip for the staff!”
“Apparently someone in his team left some Usher dollars on the floor to promote his Vegas residency,” Wilson continued. “That is where it seems the confusion came in. But real actual cash was used for tips. We would love to host him again.”
Usher is yet to comment on the matter.
