Report: Usher Paid $1 Million To Woman He Allegedly Infected With Herpes

Published: Wednesday 19th Jul 2017 by Sam

Usher‘s name may become synonymous with a different kind of ‘Burn’ – if new reports prove true.

Radar Online have gone to press with court documents, which appear to prove that the singer settled a lawsuit levied against him by a stylist who claimed he infected her with the herpes virus.

The amount he paid in damages? A reported $1.1 million.

Interestingly, the narrative isn’t recent and actually dates back to 2012.

Per the filing, Usher was diagnosed with the virus at some point between 2009 and 2010 (after his divorce from Tameka Foster, who he cheated on) and was accused of having unprotected sex with the alleged victim without telling her.

Indeed, even when a “greenish discharge” appeared from his penis, he insisted he had tested negative for STDs.

Taking this at face value, the claimant continued her “relationship” with the singer. However, per court docs, she was later allegedly diagnosed with herpes, complete with symptoms such as vaginal sores and high fever.

California state law makes it crystal clear that it is a crime to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD.

In a bid to perhaps smooth things over after allegedly getting his Dr call the claimant to reveal his true status, court docs show that Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills – with the 2012 tally should $2,754.40.

Paying the bills allegedly formed part of the singer’s desire to deal with the matter outside of the legal system. He was said to be extremely apologetic about the situation. Yet, that didn’t cut it for the accuser. In her filing, she said that she “feels that her health and body have been ruined,” and that she “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”

Usher seemingly agreed and cut the bigger check to settle the drama.

Now 38, the singer is married to Grace Miguel (his former manager). They tied the knot in 2015 after years of dating.


On the one hand, one has to wonder why this is making its way into public domain a) now and b) at all. Aspects of it feel grossly invasive.

And yet (if true) such recklessness naturally leaves one open the mass scrutiny he’s getting now.

It’ll be intriguing to see if he makes a statement.

  6. Achooo! July 19, 2017

    Many people have it including his current wife and Jim Carey has it as well. You got to inspect the areas with the light on and look in the medicine cabinet you will learn a lot about a person from that medicine cabinet it’s scary

    • Jeans July 19, 2017

      • Jeans July 19, 2017

        Lol ok thanks lol

    • Jasmine July 19, 2017

      I agree. I don’t care how much money you have or how famous you are if I see red flags like the lady did in this article then no s** for him. Period. Green discharge is a red flag that I would not have ignored. The color green anywhere on animal bodies means infection. The disgusting part to me is not that he has h***** but that he consciously transmitted h***** to this stylist. If she saw green discharge then he did two and you can’t tell me that he forgot what the doctor told him or did not see the green discharge.

  7. GAVIN GAVALLI July 19, 2017

    Chilli got out just in time!!!!!

    • RoyalBey July 19, 2017

  8. bravo!! July 19, 2017

    Why wouldn’t he have her sign some type of slicence contract… If she tell anybody he can sue her for breach of contract. He could have added another 200, 000, 00 for her to sign. He just needs to going on and be a spoke person for h*****..

    • Jasmine July 19, 2017

      Confidentiality agreements do not protect criminal actions. Under CA law, it is criminal to knowingly infect someone. Criminal charges trump any type of confidentiality agreement.

    Usher passing out the CLAPS around the LIPS!! ? He’s married nowadays so hopefully she’s careful around those smackers!! ✌??

  10. …I HATE WHITE B******. AND ….. BLACK BIT..,,,HES…both. Not ish.. July 19, 2017

    then his children and his current wife would have it also………h***** can be transferred by a simple kiss

    • …I HATE WHITE B******. AND ….. BLACK BIT..,,,HES…both. Not ish.. July 19, 2017

  11. Fancy BISH July 19, 2017

    What fresh hell is this? LAWD.

  12. Frank July 19, 2017

    I hope this shines a light on std’s and the stigma people give people with stds. Stds are not as horrible as they used to be and they can be controlled and people can live normal healthy lives and also have healthy children without those diseases. The main reason people don’t tell their partners is because of the stigma, stereotypes and ignorance. I hope more people will be able to be open about themselves in the future. If I was usher I’d take this as an opportunity to raise awareness and educate people who spew hate.

  13. Its me guwrl July 19, 2017

    Eww disgusting, Justin could never.

  17. truthteller July 20, 2017

    The lady in question was pretty dumb. If I was with a man who had green discharge coming from down there, I would be running for the hills not asking if he had been tested. She’s lucky it wasn’t a more serious STD

  18. Jamie July 20, 2017

    He’s been nasty though.

  19. tyana jones July 21, 2017
