A bombshell report claims Usher quietly settled a lawsuit with an ex lover after he allegedly gave her Herpes.
Radaronline reports that the singer paid the celebrity stylist $1.1 million. The legal documents states Usher was exposed to the virus in 2009 or 2010 and initially failed to disclose this information to the woman. He is said to have “had rigorous unprotected sex without disclosing he was stricken with the rabid virus.”
According to the report:
In a disgusting revelation, 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.
After initially admitting concern to his partner, Usher — who’s worth a cool $180 million — later convinced her that an STD examination result was negative, and they continued to engage in unprotected sex.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship,” a lawyer for the victim wrote in a legal complaint for damages.
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.
Usher covered her medical bills and had his doctor speak to the woman confirming he has the herpes virus. The court papers state, the celebrity stylist “feels that her health and body have been ruined,” and she “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”
She sued and Usher settled in 2012.
