Three accusers to sue Usher for failing to disclose alleged STD

Three accusers to sue Usher for failing to disclose alleged STD

One of Bloom's clients, Quantasia Sharpton, addressed reporters at the press conference, saying that she had sexual contact with Usher in the past after she was at a concert and invited backstage, but he didn't tell her he had herpes.

"I was wearing a birthday crown and because of that I was selected to go backstage before the show", Sharpton said.

Sharpton says if she had known that Usher had herpes, she "would have never consented" to sex with him.

One of the trio has tested positive for the STD, lawyer Lisa Bloom said in a statement, adding that several other people had reached out to her office and could possibly be added to the lawsuit once their claims were reviewed. According to Sharpton, they later had unprotected sex at a hotel and Usher did not make her aware that he had herpes. It's important to note, the lawsuit is based on news reports that Usher is carrying the STD and that he settled a herpes lawsuit for $1.1 million a few years back.

The new claims about the singer's health come after two women and a man launched legal action against Usher, claiming they slept with him, but he failed to tell he had tested positive himself for STDs.

A lawsuit was filed Monday accusing Usher of failure to inform three plaintiffs that he may have exposed them to genital herpes before sexual contact.

That same morning, one of the reported victims - 21-year-old Quantasia Sharpton - spoke of the encounter at a NY press conference.

SandraRose.com reports that Usher is not even infected with herpes.

As we've reported, they include two women and a man and all three claim that the singer did not disclose that he had herpes. One of the plaintiffs even claimed that the singer caused her "birthing complications".

Sharpton said she was handpicked by a security guard at the concert, after which she dropped her number for subsequent contact.

"I wouldn't have taken the risk of getting an incurable disease".

They can't call him either because he always called them from a blocked number, she says.

Sharpton said that she was shocked at the reports, and knows she does not have the infection as she had a child a year ago (16). Not when you hear Sharpton's story about Usher picking her out of the crowd, deciding he was going to sleep with her, and then sleeping with her.

Sharpton's attorney Lisa Bloom said: "We hope the reports are not true".

The 38-year-old singer, who has been married to his manager Grace Miguel since 2015, has yet to publicly comment on the allegations.
