Usher is being sued by three people for allegedly failing to warn them he had an STD.
It was recently revealed the ‘OMG’ hitmaker had paid a woman $1.1 million in 2012 to settle a lawsuit after she claimed to have contracted herpes from him and now attorney Lisa Bloom has revealed she is filing a lawsuit on behalf of a trio of alleged victims.
Two of the group are remaining private and are simply named in the complaints as Jane Doe and John Doe, but the third, Quantasia Sharpton, has come forward to recount details of her night of passion with the 38-year-old singer on her 19th birthday.
Speaking at the New York Hilton Midtown, with her lawyer by her side, Quantasia – who does not have herpes – said: “I love Usher’s artistry and music. I went to a concert of his with some friends a few years ago, to celebrate my birthday. I was wearing a birthday crown, and because of that I was selected to go backstage before the show.
“Later a security guard picked me up and asked me for my number. He told me Usher had seen me backstage and was interested in me. After the show, my friends and I returned to the hotel.
“I got a call from Usher on a blocked number, asking me what hotel I was staying in and the room number. About an hour later, he arrived. We spoke for awhile, and then we engaged in sexual contact.
“He never warned me about any STDs. It was just after my 19th birthday. I never heard from him again. When I first heard reports that he had herpes, I couldn’t believe it.”
While she may be STD free, Quantasia insists she would never have slept with Usher if he’d disclosed his alleged condition to her and claims she feels he “violated” her rights.
She added: “I had a child a year ago, and I knew I was negative. But I contacted Lisa Bloom to find out what my rights are as a woman.
“Although I am negative, I am upset by the reports because I never would have consented, if I would have known. I would not have taken a risk of getting an incurable disease.
“My health is very important to me, now that I am a mother. I feel that my rights were violated.
“I am speaking out today on behalf of myself and others, some of whom are positive and are embarrassed to speak out publicly. I am doing this so that he does not do this to anyone else.”
And the woman urged Usher to speak out and confirm whether or not he has the condition.
She added: “Usher, if you are negative, please say so. If you are positive, you need to warn your sex partners, so that they can make their own informed decisions.”
