Pop singer, Usher Raymond reportedly paid a former lover $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit after claiming she contracted herpes from the singer.
Court documents, first published by Radar Online, show that the 38-year-old ‘U Got It Bad’ singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with the incurable condition between 2009-2010,
An affidavit from the complainant states that the singer nonetheless engaged in unprotected intercourse without first disclosing the affliction.
According to California state law, where Usher resides, it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an sexually transmitted disease (STD).
The performer later denied being a carrier of the non-lethal condition, despite ‘greenish discharge’ from his penis, court documents say.
‘Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,’ the legal docs stated.
The plaintiff was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.
Usher has yet to make a public statement on the matter.
Usher married Grace Miguel (pictured) in 2015, more than five years after he allegedly contracted the herpes virus. She is not believed to be woman in the lawsuit and is not believed to have the virus
Between 2011 and 2012, the Grammy award wining artist paid for medical bills on behalf of the plaintiff totaling $2,754.40, around the same time the ‘Confessions’ singer had his doctor inform the woman that he was indeed a carrier of the disease, court documents show.
