Jason Derulo was allegedly involved in a fight on Tuesday night in front of the ARIA Hotel and Casino nightclub in Las Vegas. We guess what happens in Vegas, doesn't stay in Vegas... Here's everything you need to know.

At around 2:22 am on January 4th, police arrived on the scene after being called in about an apparent fight that had occurred. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department revealed to Us Weekly, "The altercation started when the suspect, identified as Jason Derulo, committed a battery against two individuals." No official statement was given by the parties, "due to the victims not wanting to prosecute." Derulo wasn't arrested or cited for the incident. But the 32-year old was asked to leave JEWEL Nightclub. Eyewitnesses disclosed that they saw the star being escorted away in handcuffs.

Based on a video shared on TMZ from an eyewitness, the Savage Love artist was going down an escalator. One person can be heard asking the singer about a previous claim, "Hey Jason, why’d you slap him?" When all of a sudden an unidentified man yelled out, "Hey Usher, f–k you, b*tch!" Derulo quickly charged at him and apparently punched him in the face before security broke up the brawl.

This all happened just 4 months after Derulo and his baby mama, Jena Frumes, called it quits. The Watcha Say artist announced on Twitter, "Jena and I have decided to part ways. She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be. Pls respect our privacy in this time.” The pair have remained close since the break-up in September. They had their first child together in May of 2021 and have continued to co-parent their 8-month old boy, Jason King. Derulo shared with People,"He's a little feisty, so I think he gets that from both Jena and I. We were born on the same day, Jena and I, so I think we both have a bit of fire in us. When he's ready to wake up, he's going to let you know that it's time to get up."

Derulo hasn't yet officially responded to the alleged mishap. Stay tuned for updates.
