Usher getting torched for allegedly giving woman herpes

Memes and tweets have been vicious toward these two singers recently.

According to media reports, singer Usher Raymond has been giving out herpes like he was giving away candy – and then paying off the victims to keep it quiet., an entertainment publication, allegedly grabbed some court documents claiming Usher gave a woman herpes and had to pay her a total of $1.1 million for her troubles.

Their romps went without a hitch until three weeks after a passionate hookup when the victim — whose identity is being withheld by Radar — 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.

According to the document, the “Yeah!” singer — going by the pseudonym “Papa Bear” in messages — posted a check covering her medical bills totaling $2,754.40.

This is not the first time that Usher has been accused of having and giving his partners the sexually transmitted disease, and social media is dragging the singer mercilessly. Take a look:
