Usher loses £50,000
09:30 20 April 2005
Usher is furious after a suitcase containing £50,000 of his belongings was stolen.
The R'n'B star was staying in a luxury New York hotel when a man posing as his aide walked off with the bag.
Usher had left the case with reception staff at the hotel, owned by billionaire Donald Trump.
The singer was so furious he called Trump personally, who promised to fully compensate him.
The property tycoon said: "I told him in future I'd love him to take his bag to his room when he checks in."
Usher is well-known for his expensive tastes.
Earlier this year, he spent £10,000 in one evening at a private party in a London hotel.
A source at the £3,000-a-night penthouse suite party, revealed: "He was so generous. He kept telling his guests to order as much booze as they wanted."
