Fan accuses Usher of exposing her to STD in new lawsuit

Quantasia Sharpton, 21 (pictured), is suing Usher for reportedly having sex with her and not telling her he had herpes

Quantasia Sharpton is one of three fans who sued R&B singer Usher, alleging that sexual intercourse with the star exposed them to herpes.

At the press conference, Sharpton detailed her encounter with Usher, which she said took place two years ago while she was celebrating her 19th birthday.

Accompanied by celebrity attorney Lisa Bloom, Quantasia Sharpton claimed she was invited backstage at an Usher concert after she was spotted wearing a birthday crown.

She said she was selected to go back stage and then a security guard asked for her number; and that Usher was interested. But after he left, she "never heard from him again".

Sharpton became a mother a year ago and has tested negative for herpes, according to Bloom, who said one of the other two plaintiffs does have herpes.

Sharpton is now 21 and went on to say that had she known he had herpes, she would not have consented to sex. They also claim that he hid a previous lawsuit from them related to his herpes status, which was reportedly settled in 2012 for $1.1 million. "At least one of my clients has tested positive for the virus and alleges that it was Mr. Raymond who transmitted it".

Sharpton's lawsuit was filed in California, a state that requires people with disease to inform their partners before engaging in sexual activity.

One of three people accusing the eight-time Grammy award-winner of exposing them to herpes spoke out during a press conference in NY on Monday. "Raymond's failure to rebut the numerous reports that he has Herpes has reasonably induced the Plaintiffs to believe that Raymond has the virus and that he exposed them to it". One of the plaintiffs, according to Bloom, contracted the virus.

The singer's camp has not yet responded to the lawsuit claims.

"I feel like my rights were violated", she said adding she made a decision to join the lawsuit so he "does not do this to anyone else". During a press conference, Sharpton told the media that she was never told that Usher was infected with a sexually transmitted disease.

Usher is about to lose all his "Yeah" money just because he didn't confess he had herpes. According to Sharpton, following the show she and several friends returned to their hotel when she received a call from a blocked number asking her where she was staying. The singer, who has had four No 1 albums in the U.S., has not publicly commented on the accusations.
