Jason Derulo ‘committed battery’ in Las Vegas altercation

Las Vegas police say pop singer Jason Derulo “committed a battery against two individuals” in an altercation at the city’s Aria resort and casino early on Tuesday morning.

According to The Guardian, video footage shows Derulo running across the venue’s atrium and throwing punches at an unidentified man, who had taunted him with comparisons to the R&B singer Usher.

Derulo was pictured in handcuffs and taken off the premises, with the resort making a trespass order against him.

He has not been arrested or charged over the attack, and a police report was not made, as the victims chose not to press charges.

Derulo has enjoyed continued chart success since his 2009 debut, earning 15 UK Top 10 hits, five of them going to No 1. He has collaborated with artists including Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg, and amassed a sizeable following for his skits on TikTok, with 51m followers.
