TMZ reported that the fake money with Usher's face on them was reportedly left on stage as part of a joke.
The outlet claimed that an insider close to Sapphire Strip Club told them that the singer and his entourage spent thousands of real dollars not only on the entertainers but also bottle service.
"Usher did NOT tip the strippers with this fake money, and actually dished out authentic greenbacks while also going on to tip the staff at large quite generously," their insider claimed.
The news portal went on to say that a representative of Sapphire said that the they would love to host the "Love In This Club" anytime he would want to come in.
And as for the "Ushbucks," the outlet reported that Usher's entourage did leave behind the fake money not only for pranking purposes, but also to promote his upcoming Vegas residency at The Colosseum at Caesar's Palace starting Jul. 2021.
Printed on the dollar bills were the words "Usher the Las Vegas Residency," which could also be proof that the money is part of a PR strategy to promote his new gig in Sin City.
However, as of writing, the "Yeah!" hitmaker has yet to comment on the scandal publicly.
