The woman who accused Usher of exposing her to an STD and plans to sue the singer for $10 million recently upped her demand to $20 million after she tested positive for herpes on Saturday (July 22), according to reports. The unidentified woman, who filed under Jane Doe, said she got tested immediately after learning Usher admitted in court docs he’s carrying the herpes simplex 2 virus.
The woman claimed she had unprotected sex with Usher in a New Orleans hotel room earlier this year. She is now suing Usher Raymond IV for $20 million.
Usher has not addressed any of the allegations publicly.
Just when it seems like things couldn’t get any worse for Usher Raymond IV, another woman has come forward claiming the “Burn” R&B singer exposed her to an STD earlier this year. The unidentified woman has filed a $10 million lawsuit for negligence, battery and emotional distress.
The suit, filed by a Jane Doe, says she and Usher hooked up in her Atlanta home on April 16. She says she performed oral sex on him and they eventually had intercourse, but she says he wore a condom.
In the legal documents obtained, she admitted they then had unprotected sex 12 days later in a New Orleans hotel room. While the woman doesn’t claim to have contracted the virus, she’s “concerned” and claims she wouldn’t have had sex with Usher had she known he was infected.
The news comes just a few days after the world was privy to some leaked court documents alleging Usher paid a celebrity stylist $1.1 million after giving her herpes sometime in 2011 or 2012 through unprotected sex. After Doe saw the reports, she evidently took action.
Usher’s current wife, Grace Miguel, who he married in 2015, posted an Instagram photo of them together as recently as five days ago.
