Usher Reportedly Settles Million-Dollar Herpes Lawsuit

Usher Raymond has reportedly settled a million-dollar lawsuit accusing him of infecting a sex partner with a sexually transmitted disease…this according to Radar Online.

The website says it obtained a lawsuit filed by a celebrity stylist, claiming the 38-year-old singer had “rigorous unprotected sex without disclosing he had herpes.” Reportedly, court papers showed Ursh was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010.

According to the lawsuit, Usher initially admitted concern to his partner, but later convinced her that he tested negative for an STD, and they continued to have unprotected sex.

“Believing Raymond’s statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship,” a lawyer for the victim wrote in a legal complaint for damages, according to Radar Online.

Three weeks after one of their sexual encounters, the woman — whose identity was withheld by Radar — woke up “feeling very sick” with a “fever of 100 degrees, chills, headache, and aches and pains,” according to Radar. She “also developed lesions and blisters in her vagina,” and was so terrified she sought treatment at urgent care, where a doctor promptly diagnosed her with herpes.
