The internet is dragging Usher for allegedly trying to “usher in” his own form of currency at a Las Vegas strip club.
In case you missed it, on Monday a dancer going by the handle @beel0ove on Instagram posted photos of three “Usher bucks” that came in $100, $20 and $1 denominations … all with Mr. Raymond’s face in place of the usual dead Presidents.
“Ladies what would you do if you danced all night for Usher and he threw this?,” she question on the IG Stories post.

Immediately folks started blasting him on Twitter for making it rain with fake money.

Now sources connected with the ‘Yeah’ singer say it’s absolutely not true.
According to TMZ Usher did hit up Sapphire Las Vegas Gentlemen’s Club but actually dropped thousands of dollars on the dancers and also tipped the staff quite generously too.
As for the fake money sources close to Usher say somebody in his crew (not him) left some stray Usher dollars behind on the stage to promote his new Vegas residency.
Usher is slated to begin his residency at Caesar’s Palace in July. He also posted a photo on Twitter on April 3 showing off a clear suitcase with bills with his face on it.
Safe to say the Usher Bucks are turning out to be a good promotional tool after all.
