After allegedly paying $1.1m to a lady he infected with herpes, singer Usher is now facing a $20 million lawsuit from another woman.
An Atlanta woman whose identity remains unknown said singer; Usher did not tell her he was infected with the STD; herpes, prior to an unprotected sex with him three months ago, has filed a new lawsuit of $20 Million against Usher claiming she has tested positive for the disease.
She raised her demands in a lawsuit of $10 million to $20 million against Usher Raymond IV, 38, after receiving medical results from an STD test on Saturday; TMZ reports.
According to TMZ, she had the test done after learning through the news that Usher told a court he had herpes in a 2012 lawsuit he subsequently settled for $1.1 million.
In the woman’s initial suit, according to the outlet, she told the court that she had sex twice with the Grammy-winning artist.
In their first sexual encounter, at the woman’s Atlanta residence on April 16, she said she performed oral sex on the singer and they later had intercourse with a condom.
Their second encounter was unprotected, and took place in a hotel on April 28 in New Orleans, where the performer was to take part in the city’s Jazz and Heritage Festival.
In legal documents in the first case initially published by Radar Online, Usher said he initially learned he had herpes around 2009-2010.
Meanwhile the lady said Usher told her he was not infected with herpes, despite a “greenish discharge” from his genitalia, leading her to continue having sex with him. She was eventually diagnosed with herpes experiencing symptoms including vaginal sores, fevers and chills.
According to legal documents, Usher paid an approximate $2,754 in medical bills in 2011-2012, with his doctor telling the woman the performer had herpes.
The lady is therefore suing the singer in connection with her doctor bills, punitive damages and emotional distress.
