LAS VEGAS (AP) – Pop and R&B artist Jason Derulo was involved in a scuffle with two people early Tuesday at a Las Vegas Strip resort, but the TikTok singer, dancer and star was not arrested nor summoned, police said.

Las Vegas police said in a statement that an altercation was reported after 2 a.m. at a nightclub in the Aria complex and that Derulo “had committed a battery against two individuals.” No injuries were reported by police.

Emails to Derulo’s agent and director requesting comment were not immediately returned on Tuesday.

Media reports, including a video posted on the celebrity website TMZ, said that Derulo, 32, hit at least one person near an escalator after someone cursed and called him names. called by the name of another musician, Usher.

“The victims did not want to press charges against Derulo,” police said, and hotel security told Derulo to leave the property under a trespass order.

Police said no police report had been made because those involved did not want to prosecute.

Derulo has sold millions of songs since 2009 and has 11 Platinum singles including “Wiggle”, “Talk Dirty”, “Want to Want Me” and “Whatcha Say”.
