Usher Hit With New Herpes Lawsuit

2w9Ut.jpg


Aug 2017


Weeks after it was revealed Usher reportedly paid a woman $1.1M in 2012 to settle a lawsuit after she claimed to have contracted Herpes from him, three more individuals are suing the singer alleging he failed to warn them of his reported STD diagnosis.


Attorney Lisa Bloom plans to file a lawsuit in California on behalf of the alleged victims, she stated in a press release on Friday.

While two of the accusers are named in the complaint as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” and are choosing to remain private, a third accuser will speak out at a press conference after the suit is filed.


According to court documents filed by the celebrity stylist whom Usher settled the suit with in 2012, the singer was allegedly diagnosed with Herpes around 2009 or 2010.


The stylist accused the star — who married his current wife Grace Miguel in 2015 — of “consciously and purposefully” withholding his diagnosis from the woman and “continued to have unprotected sex” with her, according to papers obtained by Radar Online.


The woman was tested and diagnosed with Herpes after suffering from vaginal sores, fevers and chills, according to the court papers.


California law states that it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD, and court papers showed the singer paid $2,754.40 of the victim’s medical bills in 2012. He eventually settled the case with the stylist on Dec. 28, 2012 for $1.1 million.

I'm starting to think there might be some truth to these stories because these allegations have been swirling for about 3 weeks now and Usher nor his manager hasn't made any statements to refute them. These are serious allegations and if this is true this is seriously going to hurt Ushers brand. Anybody who withholds serious contagious diseases, viruses and diagnoses from a sexual partner (and has unprotected sex anyway) should be rightfully prosecuted.

"Don't check me
It was your girl who let me
Take it this far then, ooh wee
She had to have every chance that she could get (herpes)
But you think you a baller
and i ain't gon' call her
Clip that, you can get mad if you want to
Say whatever you want but she still gon' give it up
Cause she likes it...

My Way, My Way
You can't satisfy her needs
She keeps runnin' back to see me do it
My Way, My Way
What i say goes and i'm in control"

$1.1M is peanuts contrasted with the astounding $20M the most recent woman is seeking. And after that there's the male plaintiff who, without a doubt, will request well in excess of a million dollars.

It's a low number, because Herpes stays with ya for life. That ain't about 'murrica, it's about one's health long term.

I agree with this... I'd probably go to jail for something if someone knew they had the herp and gave it to me.... with no disclosure...


...Cause buddy;....that's life sentence...

Ushers camp need to craft a statement because this is getting really really messy. I think they are waiting to see how many people will come forward. I don't understand why this world is so evil, why would you put someone else's health in jeapordy? If these claims are true, I hope they sue for all it's worth.

"Today, I am filing a lawsuit on behalf of two women and one man who say they had sexual contact with Mr. Raymond," attorney Lisa Bloom said. "All of my clients allege that they've had direct sexual contact with Mr. Raymond, and one of them has been tested positive."

Bloom revealed that several others have privately come forward with claims that they had sexual contact with Usher, who failed to disclose that he allegedly had herpes.

His brand took a direct hit in the press conference Lisa Bloom held today. Where's his crisis manager/ spokesperson?! The deafening silence cannot but raise suspicions.

The fact that Lisa freaking Bloom is NOW involved in this mess should be even more of a reason for Usher to make a statement shutting down these claims. Three weeks ago when the first woman came forward I just knew this was a lie and Ushers team would make a statement, I was shocked when nothing was said. eek Weeks later more claims are being made and Ushers team still have not said anything. This is going to ruin Ushers career. Everyone already believes the women because of his lack of response. His team has handled this horribly. Even if it was/is true he still could have made some respectful dignified response.

This ain't no shakedown.

Usher has had more than a week to vehemently deny having Herpes and infecting one or more persons with the virus. There has been no press statement, no countersuit, no angry missive from his legal representative. Nothing.

Woman who says Usher exposed her to herpes speaks out at New York press conference



X
Updated: Monday, August 7, 2017, 11:08 AM
.

They got it bad.

Three fans sued Usher Monday, alleging that sexual encounters with the R&B star exposed them to herpes.

.

The lone public accuser, Quantasia Sharpton, alleged she had a tryst with Usher in a hotel room as she was celebrating her 19th birthday two years ago.

.

Sharpton said she’s negative for herpes — but still suffered severe stress and embarrassment after learning she might have been exposed to the incurable sexually transmitted disease.

.

“When I first heard he had herpes I couldn’t believe it...I would have never consented if I had known,” Sharpton, 21, said during a press conference at the New York Hilton Midtown.

The other two fans, a man and woman, were identified only as John Doe and Jane Doe in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.

.

Their attorney, Lisa Bloom, said one of them does have herpes.

article-usher1.jpg

Quantasia Sharpton (r.) and her lawyer Lisa Bloom hold a press conference at the Hilton Hotel on Monday. Sharpton claims she was possibly exposed to it because of her sexual encounters with Usher.

Sharpton, who uses the name Angel Valentino on social media, also told her Facebook followers, “I need some money” about a week before her lawsuit.

.

Early Monday she wrote, “Enjoying my last hours as a regular girl.”

The musician, whose full name is Usher Raymond, has not responded to the accusations. Among his biggest hits are songs “U Got It Bad,” “You Make Me Wanna,” “Burn” and “U Remind Me.”

“Raymond was a revered celebrity in their eyes who they believed could be loved and trusted,” the suit says. “Each plaintiff realizes that his or her consent was obtained under false pretenses and/or by Raymond’s lie by omission, causing them severe emotional distress.”

.

Sharpton said she was sporting a birthday crown at an Usher concert when she and her friends received word they were invited backstage. She gave her phone number to a security guard. When she returned to the hotel, she received a call from the performer, Sharpton said.

Bloom did not allow her client to share where or when the concert took place. The lawsuit contained no details on any of the alleged encounters with Usher, 38.

.

“We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact. He never warned me about any STDs,” Sharpton said.

She added that she gave birth last year and is certain she is negative for herpes.

“Usher, if you are negative, please say so. If you are positive, you need to warn your sex partners,” Sharpton said.

.

Bloom says California law requires a person disclose he or she has herpes to a sex partner.

RadarOnline reported last month that in 2012 Usher settled a lawsuit with a celebrity stylist for $1.1 million. That lawsuit alleged the eight-time Grammy winner was diagnosed with the virus in 2009 or 2010 — around the time he divorced his first wife.

.

All the encounters in the new lawsuit occurred after the settlement, Bloom said.

WOW! Hope this isn't true but if so what was Usher on? I'm not handsom, a celebrity or wealthy and still I would not sleep with this chick. Disgusting.

If he did indeed do this she needs to share some responsibilities she should have practiced or insisted on practicing safe sex just as much as he should have used a condom.
