Usher Raymond was criticized online for allegedly paying exotic dancers with fake money at a Las Vegas strip club.

The R&B crooner was trending for allegedly passing fake money with his own face on the bills called “Usher bucks.”

One stripper, @beel0ove took to Twitter to post a photo of the bills.

“Ladies what would you do if you danced all night for usher and he threw this??” she asked. The dancer asked her followers to “blast” the father-of-three for passing fake bucks.

However, a source tells Page Six it was a big misunderstanding.

“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!”

A rep for the Sapphire strip club tells TMZ Usher actually tossed authentic Washingtons.

He ended up spending thousands on the dancers and also enjoyed bottle service. Sapphire tells TMZ they’d love to host him again, any time.

Sources close to Usher tell TMZ that somebody in his crew left some Usher Bucks behind on the stage as a joke. But the ladies weren’t laughing. They work hard for the money.

Usher’s Las Vegas residency at Caesar’s Palace is set to begin in July 2021.
