WOMAN SUES USHER FOR $20 MIL AFTER TESTING POSITIVE FOR HERPESJuly 24, 2017
A second woman has stepped forward and accused Usher of having unsafe sex with her and exposing her to herpes.
The unnamed woman was initially suing for $10 million, but has since learned she contracted the STI and has upped her demands to $20 million in damages for negligence, emotional distress and battery.
While the woman claims Usher never told her he had herpes, they reportedly proceeded to have sex without condoms earlier this year.
This is the second woman to come forward after it was revealed last week that the “U Got It Bad” singer had paid a $1.1 million settlement to a woman he allegedly gave herpes to without her knowledge.
The R&B singer has not commented on the latest accusations.
In case you forgot, Usher has been married to his former manager Grace Miguel since September 2015.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, roughly one out of six people in the U.S. aged 14 to 49 have genital herpes caused by the HSV-2 infection.
