Yesterday, I told you about a Los Angeles stylist who accused Usher Raymond of shoplifting. Now more stories about Usher’s sticky fingers have surfaced online.
On Monday, April 12, Brian Jimenez 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.”
Now another Twitter user claims Usher was banned from the New York boutique where she worked for walking out without paying for merchandise.
Usher apparently perfected his boosting game. He would try on merchandise and then simply “forget” he had it on.
A Twitter user 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 make up.”
Apparently, boosting is common among celebrities. Boutiques normally eat the loss — especially if the celebrity spends thousands of dollars in the store in previous or future visits.
