While many gentlemen's clubs around the country remain closed due to Covid-19, some have already re-opened in the adult playground of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Singer Usher toasted the occasion during a recent outing at the Sapphire Las Vegas.

Yet instead of supporting the dancers at the Las Vegas venue with cold hard cash, he allegedly threw counterfeit money around the club!

Photos of dollar bills with the singer's face printed on them spread as he allegedly made it rain all over the venue!

The star quickly came under fire on Twitter, where users blasted the successful celebrity for paying the dancers with "Ushbucks" instead of real money.

Commenters wondered if the 42-year-old may be broke and the reason behind the stunt.

Page Six contacted the operators of the club and the truth came out: despite the rumors, Usher actually did not give the ladies fake dough!

"Usher was a true gentleman and a great guest at the club," said George M. Wilson IV, Sapphire’s director of marketing.

He is confirmed to have spent thousands of real dollars at the club and left a generous tip for staffers.

The counterfeit money was actually meant as a joke at the end of the night. It was left at the club by Usher's team to promote his upcoming Vegas residency, which will begin in July!

Social media shared photos of the counterfeit money

Usher left some money nods on his Instagram

Rumors and photos of Usher's fake bills continued to spread on social media.

The photos originated from shots the musician posted himself to his Instagram account a week earlier. In them, the singer posed with wads of cash plastered with his face and stacked in a clear suitcase.

Close-ups of the bills continue to be shared and have now been widely dubbed "Ushbucks" on social media.

Some Twitter users found the move "hilarious" while others expressed anger over what appeared as entitlement and disrespect to the club's staff.

Adding fuel to the fire, Usher has not officially commented on the debacle, but instead posted a cheeky photo of himself wearing a bucket hat made out of $1 bills on Monday,

It seems he's letting the money speak volumes.
