Usher paid $1.1M to woman he allegedly infected with herpes


Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed the pop star infected her with herpes, court papers show.

The documents were first published Wednesday by Radar Online, but they appear to date back to 2012.

The 38-year-old “Confessions” singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, according to the court papers. But nonetheless, he had unprotected sex with the claimant without confessing that he was carrying the virus.

The law is clear in California: It is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD. Usher allegedly did just 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 docs 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 — $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.

Usher had herpes for years the legal documents noted that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010, around when he finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster after she accused him of cheating.

The singer married his current wife, Grace Miguel, in 2015.

Herpes is a life-long STD and everything that looks clean ain’t clean.

        True and if you’re not faithful in the courtship, you won’t be faithful in the marriage.

  3. That’s why I have NEVER been interested in dating someone famous. I’m sorry, but it’s like playing Russian Roulette with a loaded gun.

    “Do not come on my page discussing rumors or adult people that have NOTHING to do with me.

    1. Hold up. Didn’t he cheat on Chili with Tameka and he made that song Confessions about their affair. That is why him and Chili broke up. She might have divorced him 8 years ago but I betcha she made a appointment at the clinic anyway when this hit the news.
