News recently emerged that R&B star Usher Raymond previously settled an STD lawsuit against him where was accused of infecting a woman with herpes, and know another woman is suing him for the same thing.
According to TMZ, the new accuser says that she and Usher had a sexual interaction this year. She performed oral sex on him and then they had protected sex.
Later, though, she says they met again and had unprotected sex. It turns out, however, that it wasn't until news about his previous lawsuit, in which he confessed to having herpes, came out that she discovered she had been "exposed" to the STD by the singer.
Her lawsuit claims Usher never told her that he had the virus and had he she never would have engaged in sex with him.
She is suing "U.R. IV" (Usher Raymond IV) for "negligence, battery, and emotional distress," as well as seeking roughly $10 million in damages.
Reporters reached out to Usher's representatives but have yet to hear back.
Usher divorced his wife in 2009 and sometime around then began a sexual relationship with an unnamed woman who is said to be a celebrity stylist.
Court documents revealed that the singer had a "greenish discharge" oozing from his penis at one point, but was considered to be an "asymptomatic carrier" by medical professionals since he had no other significant signs of infection.
The documents revealed the woman claims Usher convinced her that he did not have an STD, at which point they continued to engage in unprotected sex.
One of her lawyers wrote, "Believing Raymond’s statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship."
Eventually, the woman started "feeling very sick" and came down with a "fever of 100 degrees, chills, headache, and aches and pains."
Additionally, the documents state that she "also developed lesions and blisters in her vagina."
She sought medical care and was told by a doctor, following an examination, that she did, in fact, have herpes. The documents also state that Usher covered her medical expenses which exceeded $2,000.
The suit was filed because the woman stated Usher "consciously and purposefully" withheld the info of his herpes from her and that he also "continued to have unprotected sex" with her.
A statement in the suit also detailed that the two spoke about the situation and that Usher agreed to help her, reading, "In a series of telephone conversations and online chat sessions, [Usher] has apologized for infecting [her] and told her he would take care of things."
Ultimately, Usher settled the suit on December 28th, 2012 to the tune of $1.1 million.
