The “same girl” singers R Kelly & Usher have become the trending news on the internet lately. While R Kelly is being accused of holding girls hostage in a cult, Usher has reportedly paid $1.1 m to a woman he recently infected with genital herpes.
According to the claimant, the superstar had unprotected sex with her without confessing that he was carrying the virus.
Court documents dated back to late 2012 show that the 38-year-old singer, was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010.
Usher allegedly did that when he told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis, the court papers say.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal documents said.
The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.
Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012, a total of $2,754.40 in all, the court papers show. That’s when he also had his doctor call the woman to tell her that the singer did indeed carry the herpes virus.
