Well there goes my childhood crush on Usher…
According to Radar Online (I know right…Radar…so let’s take this with a pinch of salt!), they have obtained legal documents that detail how Usher had “rigorous unprotected sex without disclosing he was stricken with the herpes virus”.
Court papers also show that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010. The woman suing him said, a “greenish discharge” once oozed from the performer’s penis, but otherwise he had no signs of the infection and was labeled an “asymptomatic carrier” by doctors.
The legal docs also claim that Usher who’s worth $180 million — later convinced her that he took an STD examination result which was negative, and they continued to engage in unprotected sex.
The victim’s lawyer wrote in the legal complaint for damages,
Believing Raymond’s statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship.
Later the victim whose identity is being withheld woke up “feeling very sick” with a “fever of 100 degrees, chills, headache, and aches and pains”. She “also developed lesions and blisters in her vagina,” and was so terrified she sought treatment at urgent care, where a doctor promptly diagnosed her with herpes. Following this she confronted him and he allegedly called her two days later with his doctor, who confirmed the music star carries the herpes virus.
Usher promptly covered her medical bills totaling $2,754.40.
The woman is now suing him for “consciously and purposefully” withholding his herpes diagnosis from her “and continuing to have unprotected s*x.”
The legal complaint was filed at the Superior Court in Los Angeles, California where the law requires a person who knows or should know they are infected with genital herpes to avoid s*xual contact with an uninfected person — or to warn potential partners before sexual contact occurs.
Between this and the news of R Kelly holding young women as s*x slaves, it’s safe to say our R & B kings are collectively falling our hand.
