USHER FACES NEW $10 MILLION LAWSUIT FOR EXPOSING ANOTHER WOMAN TO STD
The Burn singer, 38, is named in a new $10 million lawsuit from a woman (filed under the name Jane Doe) who claimed he didn’t tell her he has herpes prior to a pair of sexual trysts they shared three months back, TMZ reported Friday.
The Love in This Club artist – who has been married to Grace Miguel since September 2015 – had two sexual encounters with his accuser in the new suit, on April 16 and 28 of this year, according to court docs.
The first time, at the woman’s Atlanta residence, consisted of her performing oral sex on him, and them having intercourse with a condom, the woman claimed in the suit, according to the outlet. In their second encounter, the woman said that she and Usher had unprotected sex in a hotel in New Orleans.
The woman, according to the outlet, only learned of Usher’s health status amid recent reports the actor confirmed he had herpes in a 2012 court case he eventually settled for $1.1 million.
Court documents in that case, first published by Radar Online, show that the U Got It Bad singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with the incurable condition between 2009-2010.
An affidavit from the complainant states that the singer nonetheless engaged in unprotected intercourse without first disclosing the affliction.
The performer later denied being a carrier of the non-lethal condition, despite ‘greenish discharge’ from his penis, court documents say.
Between 2011 and 2012, the Grammy award-wining artist paid for medical bills on behalf of the plaintiff totaling $2,754.40, around the same time the Confessions singer had his doctor inform the woman that he was indeed a carrier of the disease, court documents show.
Usher was first allegedly ‘exposed to herpes’ in 2009 or 2010, the legal documents show, around the time when finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster after she accused him of cheating.
Foster is not believed to have contracted the virus; Usher has yet to make a public statement on the matter.
In a declaration, the woman said she ‘feels that her health and body have been ruined ‘and she ‘has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.’
The singer has been married to his current wife Grace since 2015. There is no suggestion she has contracted the virus.
