Usher reportedly forks out millions to woman he allegedly infected with herpes

20 July 2017

Court documents show that the You Got It Bad singer (38) was diagnosed with the condition between 2009 and 2010.

Usher Raymond has allegedly forked out a whopping R14,2 million ($1.1 million) to an ex-lover to settle a lawsuit in which she claims to have contracted genital herpes from the singer.

Reports show that the complainant, a celebrity stylist, states that Usher didn’t disclose the STD before they engaged in unprotected sex – which is illegal under California law.

The lawsuit accuses the star of “consciously and purposefully” withholding his herpes diagnosis.

The complainant stated that she continued her relationship with the singer after he denied having the disease – even though his ex-lover was diagnosed with herpes shortly after.

In 2011 and 2012 the Grammy Award-winning artist paid medical bills on behalf of the complainants amounting to the equivalent of R35 670.

Usher is yet to comment publicly on the matter.
