Usher Promises to Pay Dancers Angry over UshBucks

This week pop star Usher Raymond went viral after passing out fake money with his face on it at a strip club in Las Vegas [click here if you missed that]. 

Now the club owner claims Usher has promised to 'make things right' with the dancers who ending up working for free... 

“I thought it was a joke when I first heard about it,” Sapphire owner Peter Feinstein said in a phone chat Monday. “I guess part of his entourage came in with a briefcase full of these ‘Ushbucks’ and they were passing them around.”
The owner says Usher will amend the chaos that ensued. Feinstein said the superstar is promising to return to the club “to make things right” ahead of the opening of his residency, which is July 16. 
“The $100 bills created a lot of excitement, because they look so much like real bills. But this wouldn’t have created a problem, except some of our entertainers tried to cash them in at the cage where we make all of our transactions,” Feinstein said. “That’s when the pedal hit the metal, so to speak. But he also left a lot of real money, bought a lot of ‘Dance Dollars,’ which we do create and use in the club.”
The “Dance Dollars” are exchanged for actual cash, and the dancers then turn them in for their night’s pay.
