Hollywood Undead

Ex-Singer Sues Band

Over 'Brutal' Beatdown

EXCLUSIVE

1014-hollywood-undead-article
Former Hollywood Undead singer Aron "Deuce" Erlichman didn't just quit his band ... he's now SUING them for assault and battery -- claiming they ambushed him outside an L.A. club ... and beat the holy hell out of him.

TMZ broke the story ... Erlichman filed a police report against ex-bandmates Dylan "FunnyMan" Alvarez and Jorel "J-Dog" Decker earlier this year, claiming they jumped him outside Angels & Kings in Hollywood on May 25th ... punching, kicking, and stomping him.

Now, he's filed a lawsuit against them and others -- claiming the "brutal" attack caused permanent damage to him and his friend, who was also allegedly victimized in the beating.

Erlichman -- repped by courthouse colossus Donald Karpel -- is suing for unspecified damages.

Calls to the Hollywood Undead were not returned.

This story is absolute proof that TMZ gets paid to do PR work. Who has ever heard of these c*ckwads before now? This must be some gaaaaay band and Harvey wanted to give his buddies some press. No one would even know who they are, except for TMZ posting this story about a 'band' beating the shiz out of their lead singer. In summation, if you actually knew who HU was prior to reading this post, it's probably best if you sucked a bullet out of the end of a 44 magnum.

And the thing is they already wrote there death warrants because the guy that video taped it was dumb enough to tweet they where down the street from the club 1 hour before the attack i think they are mad deuce outed them about how American tragedy didn't sell as well as they claimed and that his album Ninelives is selling real good he is also working on his next studio album and he writes every day he could put out 2 new albums if he really wanted but nine lives just released so he is letting it run its course and look at them without him writing all the damn songs they cant even make the due date they promised on there third album they care only for money which is why they released a damn remix album
