A woman who slept with the crooner earlier this year claims she had no idea that she was being exposed to herpes when she agreed to have unprotected sex with him, TMZ reports.
And, unless you forgot, the “Yeah” singer has been married to Grace Miguel for nearly two years.
According to the complaint filed by this secret side chick, who goes by “Jane Doe” in her legal docs, she and Usher had a romantic rendezvous on April 16 at her Atlanta home. At that point, they got frisky, she performed oral sex, and they had intercourse. However, it was protected sex on this occasion.
About two weeks later, she met up with Usher in a New Orleans hotel room, and the two got busy again. But this time, Usher chose to use condoms.
Fast forward to a few days ago, and “Ms. Jane Doe” was horrified to learn that Usher is admittedly infected with Herpes Simplex 2. Even though the woman did not say if she is infected right now, she is scared about unknowingly being exposed to the virus. She also says she never would have agreed to have sexual relations if she knew the superstar singer was burning.
“Jane Doe” is suing Usher for $10M for negligence, battery, and emotional distress. Comparatively, Usher only had to pay $1M to the woman he allegedly gave the virus to.
Some see this as a straight money play. But, it’s not like Usher isn’t in the wrong for cheating on his wife and not disclosing his alleged status to the woman.
According to California state law, where Usher now resides, it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit a sexually transmitted disease (STD). The performer later denied being a carrier of the non-lethal condition, despite “greenish discharge” from his penis, court documents say.
Unfortunately, it is too late for the first accuser.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal documents stated, according to the Daily Mail. The plaintiff was eventually diagnosed with herpes after suffering from vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.
