KXIP vs KKR Live Score

One of the accusers, Quantasia Sharpton, told The New York Daily News that she and the entertainer had romped in her hotel room two years ago while she was celebrating her 19th birthday.

In a press conference on Monday, celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom appeared with one of the plaintiffs, Quantasia Sharpton, a.k.a. Angel Valentino.

When she reached backstage, she was approached by Usher's security guard who asked for her contact number and revealed that the singer was interested in her. "He never warned me about any STDs".

TMZ reports that a woman has come forward and is suing usher for allegedly exposing her to genital herpes.

Although Sharpton tested negative for the virus when she gave birth a year ago, she contacted the woman's lawyer, Bloom, hoping Usher will tell his partners if he has an STD.

Bloom did not identify the other two people - one woman and one man - who are party to the lawsuit filed Monday, choosing to identify them only as "Jane Doe" and "John Doe".

Two accusers have opted to remain anonymous, one of whom has tested positive for the virus.

The Radar Online report evidently alarmed people who say they hooked up with Usher more recently.

Quantasia Sharpton, 21, spoke to media alongside Bloom at a morning press conference in NY yesterday, The Daily Mail reported.

"When I first heard reports that [Usher] had herpes, I couldn't believe it..."

Sharpton states that she felt violated by Usher's alleged omission of his health status and states that it was "unfair" for her to have to find out through the media regarding the issue.

"No one in America - even a popular celebrity - is above the law".

Lost in the R. Kelly sex house drama was the Usher herpes drama. They talked for a while, then had "sexual contact", Sharpton said. "I would have never consented if I had known", she said.

Neither Usher nor anyone else should be shamed or stigmatized for having herpes, but it's important that the truth about his diagnosis be ascertained, Bloom said.

"I am speaking out today on behalf of myself and others, some of whom are positive and are embarrassed to speak out publicly", she said.

Bloom said the encounters in the lawsuit occurred after an alleged 2012 settlement, reported on by RadarOnline in July.

The R&B vocalist is supposedly set to take his own legal route by suing the individuals alleging he exposed them to the sexually transmitted disease.

Since the lawsuit and the accusations have been made public, Usher has gone completely silent.
