Usher has not commented on the case yet

Usher Raymond IV has allegedly given a whopping R14 266 560 ($1.1 million) to an ex-lover to settle a lawsuit in which she claimed that she contracted genital herpes from the singer.

Court documents show that the U Got It Bad singer was diagnosed with the condition between 2009 or 2010.

Reports show that the complainant said Usher didn’t disclose the affliction before they engaged in unprotected intercourse, which is illegal according to California state law.

The complainant stated that she continued her relationship with the singer after he denied having a STD. But despite Usher’s denial, his ex-lover was then diagnosed with genital herpes.

In 2011 and 2012, the Grammy-award-winning artist paid the complainant’s medical bills, which came to about R35 719.

Usher is yet to comment publicly on the matter.
