Jason Derulo reportedly punched a man who called him Usher in the face during a brawl in Las Vegas.

The 32-year-old singer allegedly fought with two men during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

TMZ reports that Police officers arrived at the ARIA hotel after the spat broke out and turned into an intense altercation.

Onlookers told the publication that Jason and one of the guys were passing each other on the escalator when the latter tried to make be funny.

"Hey, Usher,” the guy reportedly yelled at Jason. "F**k you, b**ch!"

The Savage Love hitmaker later ran over and allegedly hit the guy in the face.

In one video captured by a fan, Jason rode on the escalator as fans could be heard asking: "Why did you slap him?

Witnesses continued to ask the performer the same question, before one loudly yelled out the Usher comment.

Jason walked away from his entourage and ran over to the man in question and appeared to punch him until he fell to the floor.

Security tried to hold him back, but he seemed to free himself and head towards the same man and his friend again.

The fight was broken up before officers later arrived on the scene.

In a separate video posted by social media, Jason appears to be taken away in handcuffs.

The eyewitness told Page Six that the pop star did not do anything to start the fight.

Although the musician was cuffed, it is unclear if the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued any charges against him.

It has been reported that the two men decided at the time not to press any charges against the singer.

Security allegedly removed Jason from the hotel and reportedly gave him a trespassing notice.

Daily Star has reached out to Jason's representatives for a comment

It comes after Jason split from model girlfriend Jena Frumes just four months after the birth of their first child.

The singer announced the split from his partner after the pair met at the beginning of 2020 and grew closer during the Covid pandemic.

Jason began dating Jena in March 2020 and their son Jason King was born on May 8.

Jason took to Twitter to share the news of their split in September with his fans, and asked for "privacy in this time."

He wrote: "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 at this time."
