Hollywood Undead

Bandmates Beat Up Lead Singer

... Criminal Investigation

EXCLUSIVE

Hollywood Undead
A popular band was none too pleased when the lead singer quit, and they acted out their anger by beating the crap out of him -- according to allegations made in a police report.

Aron "Deuce" Erlichman was the lead singer of Hollywood Undead, a popular rap/rock band.  Deuce decided to quit the band a few months ago to launch a solo career. Since then, Deuceclaims he has been a target of the former band member’s anger and threats.

On May 25, Deuce performed at Angels & Kings -- a Hollywood hotspot.  After his gig, Deuce left the club and claims his former bandmates were "lying in wait." Deuce claims when they spotted him, they jumped him and went to town -- punching, kicking and stomping on him. Deuce says a friend of his was injured as well while trying to defend him.

Deuce says he was badly hurt and went to cops, alleging former bandmates Dylan
"FunnyMan" Alvarez and Jorel "J-Dog" Decker were the primary culprits. Deuce also told cops the two dudes had someone videotape the attack -- which he believes means the attack was premeditated. 

Now, Deuce plans to sue -- and has already hired legal pitbull Donald Karpel.

Cops are investigating. So far, no comment from FunnyMan or J-Dog.

Load of **** lol. For one thing, Deuce was VOTED out of the band in 2009, not "a few months ago". And another thing, this makes no sense. While there is some heat between Deuce and HU, I doubt they would beat one another up, especially just because he's not with them anymore. If there's going to be articles of something happening, whether it is fake or real, atleast make it sound legit...

Story is all wrong... Deuce was kicked out of the band over a year ago. He talks bad about the band every chance he gets, released a solid diss song which made threats of violence towards members of the band and even formed a new band ripping off the mask gimmick. I don't expect guys in a rock band to act like civil adults, but when you take things down to a street level, this is simply a case of one guy running his mouth, making threats and catching a receipt for it.

First off, if this is true. Then go Hollywood Undead! Deuce the Douche deserved every hit after all the crap he's done :)

Second, but the thing is, this is not true. I wish it was because Deuce needed an ass-kicking, but it's not. First off, Deuce was VOTED out of the band in 2009! 3 years ago. Not "a few months ago". And if you're going to try to make up a seemingly legit rumor, at least make it sound professional. "Beat the crap out of him", "cops are investigating", "badly hurt", and most of all, you wouldn't use pseudonyms.

If it is true, then go HU! :)

I agree with muffinizer, if this were true he fully deserved it after all the **** he's been saying for years. This article doesn't talk about that or how Duece has been threatening them, with his huge body guard crew (we know he's too lame to have friends) cause Duece is and has always been a useless coward.

the only way they did it is if he really deserved it. He's been talking **** about the band and their families for years while the band stayed mum about it. From the beginning his Diva attitude held the band back. He would miss shows, interviews, and meet and greets just cause he wanted to. He never understood that it was a group effort, not just about him. so he got kicked out and that was it.
