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.

I think that HU and Deuce should stop acting like a bunch of pricks and make up. Cause i mean come on they have Danny now so they shouldn't jack around anymore and Deuce has a succesful solo career. Besides they're obviously still paying attention to each other or else they wouldn't have known that Deuce was there or that HU mad a reaction song to story of a snitch meaning they either care or they can't get over the fact that they lost a friend.

TMZis just beingmedia. They're taking the side of the one who looks the most innocent on the outside, and in this case, that would be Deuce. But five only went to the police, and TMZneeds to dig up in the back story.

Honestly, I don't blame J and Funny. After all, Deuce DID release two diss songs. Even though 'Lights Out' was alledgedly a response, the band never did confirm it. Story of a Snitch:
Here's the story of a snitch, that I knew so many years, but now he's a bitch, fu*k your feelings, you can suck my di*k.
And When We Ride, which was ripped from Hollywood Undead's song Dead in Ditches when Deuce was still with them.
