Singer-songwriter Usher used fake money to tip dancers in Las Vegas.

There is no evidence that singer-songwriter Usher tipped dancers with fake money at a club in Las Vegas. This is false.

There is no evidence that singer-songwriter Usher tipped dancers with fake money at a club in Las Vegas. This is false.The claim that singer-songwriter Usher tipped the dancers at Sapphire Las Vegas Gentlemen's club in Las Vegas with fake money is False.

The claim started making rounds on social media after a Twitter user posted - "Usher throwing fake money at a strip club? To hard-working women?". The image with the tweet read- "And the money doesn't have a trade-in value whatsoever! Lmao. Don't you all think he should be blasted at social media for this shit".

Soon the post went viral on social media with similar claims. Some users dubbed the fake notes as "usher money" or "user bucks."

The claim was, however, refuted by the director of marketing at the club. Greg Wilson clarified that the singer did not tip the strippers with fake currency. He said that the confusion started after when someone from the singer's team left counterfeit money with the Usher's face on it at the club "to promote his upcoming Vegas residency," the USA Today reported.

Wilson added, in fact, the singer left a "generous tip" for the staff, in real bills. "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", he said. However, there is no clarification given by the singer or his team regarding the incident. Before the incident, on April 4, the singer posted an image of a bag full of fake money with his picture on it on Instagram.
