Hollywood Undead members were not 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, Deuce claims 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". Singer 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, former Hollywood Undead singer plans to sue - and has already hired legal pitbull Donald Karpel.

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

Thanks to TMZ for the report.

    And then they were all arrested and sent to prison for life. Is that too much to ask ?

    If only Guns And Roses had done this everytime Axl bitched out of a performance...

    Whatever, everyone knows that Deuce was thrown out of the band... But still, Hollywood Undead are beyond terrible. Where I live, people seem to really love their music, and it's ****ing torture.

    I don't know who these people are but their fake middle names hint that they might be douchebags.

    Am I the only one that finds this hilarious?

    What happened to being a badass? If you go by one of his 'songs', he doesn't take shit from anybody, and he'll **** you up if you try anything. In actuality, touch him and he'll sue your ass. Also, I didn't know Hollywood Undead had a lead 'singer'. What does that makes the 6 other rappers in the band?

    you seem to not have the faintest idea of what a hipster is. besides, people can like or bash whatever they want. they call those things 'opinions' and believe it or not, everyone is entirled to them. not just 'those who think theyre so cool' i don't know a whole lot about this band other than that their biggest song is comprised of bad rapping over crazy trains main riff, and that they have nicknames like 'j-dog' and 'deuce'. fascinating.

    1. According to HU, Deuce just didn't show up for a tour, so they "kicked him out" 2. They put a diss track against him on their last album, so clearly there is a bit of animosity 3. The whole lot of them are a novelty band who take themselves too seriously, they should all get beaten down.

    I don't hate their music like most folks do. It's just the "cool thing" to do in today's music world, anyway. I'll be surprised if there's any credence to this story.

    Don't blame him, tbh, they are an awful band. Generic is an understatement.

Apparently it's because he (Deuce), was wanting to record solo and other stuff with his 'side-group' '9Lives' & they (Hollywood Undead), didn't like this. The diss track is true, so Deuce retaliated with a diss track back, 'Story of a Snitch'. Really? So what were Slipknot in the past? They were novel that were too past?
    To be fair, Story of a Snitch came first, they quoted it in the song. And no, HU is novelty because their music is all flash and no substance, Slipknot is at least somewhat talented band, whose frontman is a damn classy guy

    Wow, I bet that "fight" looked like a mouse running through a *****house. A bunch of flailing and nothing getting done. And...

    It makes no sense to assume a person is automatically like they are in their music. He got jumped, so he's suing. Not "badass" but this is reality.

    Since when do hipsters wear Tapout or Ed Hardy? I'm pretty sure that stuff is reserved for white trash in denial. Pretty funny story, ironic thing is it the video footage probably sucks. I mean it's a bitch fight

    they sound like a cool-aid version of linkin park and crazy town... any guy that calls himself a Deuce is bound to be beaten. anybody here has the balls to walk the street calling yourself THE DEUCE? lol well, if your lawyer is a pitbull who wouldnt...

    They must speculate that a beat down will get them arrested and jail time would HOPEFULLY sell more albums.

    Ive met them all. I did not like the one that left at all, he seemed like a douche.
