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.

TMZ you might want to get your facts straight before you post stories. Deuce was kicked out of the band two years ago, he didn't leave a couple months ago. I wouldn't say I'd be surprised if the fight did take place, but it really sounds like another one of Deuce's bull ---- stories to take the band down since they're better off without him.

blah    

eh Deuce probably deserved it in all honesty (assuming it DID actually happen) The guy runs his mouth every chance he gets and is always trying to start ****. I actually enjoyed Nine Lives somewhat, but the dude has some serious attitude problems that need to be sorted out, a real asshat in my opinion

TMZ, you guys are slipping. You need to get some spellcheckers and factcheckers up in there. Hell, even a 20 second search on Wikipedia will tell you it's been far more than "few months" since Deuce was *kicked out of* HU.

Funny how Deuce needs more publicity. Interesting how Undead kicked him out, and he claims he left to start a solo career... He just wants vengeance against a band who didn't want him.

Deuce left/ got kicked out of Hollywood Undead almost 2 years ago. Not a few months.

I think this is a big lie. Big Deuce is being stupid.
I really don't think Funny Man and J-Dog wouldnt fall so low as to go and beat Big Deuce up.

Aron was kicked out of the band for not being a good performer, he never left!!! HAHA, and I'm not surprised that he got his ass beat, he talks crap but can't take the heat.

Hmm, had this actually happened he would have done his usual and bitch about it on Facebook or Twitter.. Instead, he posted the day after on Facebook like nothing ever happened and even uploaded a video on the 28th where he has no bruises or scratches. Deuce, get a damn life.
