In what comes off as quite shocking and unbelievable, two former retail workers have accused American singer, Usher Raymond, of shoplifting.
These allegations come after a stripper accused the multiple Grammy award winner of passing fake “Ush Bucks” at the Las Vegas strip club where she works.
Apparently, boosting is common among celebrities and boutiques normally eat the loss, especially if the celebrity spends thousands of dollars in the store in previous or future visits. Now more stories about Usher’s sticky fingers have surfaced online.
Stylist Brian Jimenez took to Twitter to narrate how Usher allegedly walked into the store he used to work and left with a $2,000 jacket without paying. He tweeted, “When I used to work retail, Usher walked in and tried on a $2,000 jacket. He chopped it up for a bit while still having it on. Then this dude dabs me up and walks out with the jacket.”
Usher apparently perfected his boosting game. He would try on merchandise and then simply “forget” he had it on.
Replying to the earlier tweet, another Twitter user claimed Usher was banned from the New York boutique where she worked for walking out without paying for merchandise.
She wrote, “Usher was banned from my store for this same sh*t. I feel like I need to clarify this isn’t a current employer, this was 10 years ago in Soho when I worked at Atrium. He was banned and so was his ex-wife. He would just steal, she would just try to return sh*t he clearly wore covered in makeup.”
She continued, saying that Usher would buy tons of things but also take things and play ignorant like he didn’t notice he had stuff on.
Twitter users went on to dig back on when he went off on his brother on punkd for shoplifting, being that he does same too.
