Woman Named Quantasia Says Usher Didn't Tell Her He Had Herpes, Sues

Usher is already on the receiving end of a $20 million lawsuit filed by a woman in July, after she alleged the singer didn't inform her about having the sexually transmitted disease, and that she allegedly contracted the virus from him.

"We hope the reports are not true", she stated.

Attorney Lisa Bloom announced the suit during a press conference with one of the accusers.

Attorney Lisa Bloom said her clients claim the singer, whose last name is Raymond, didn't warn them that he allegedly had herpes before being intimate with them, CBS2 reported.

"When I first heard he had herpes I couldn't believe it.I would have never consented if I had known".

Of the three people actually suing Usher, Bloom says only one of them has tested positive for herpes, but that doesn't matter. Sharpton said that while she herself did not contract herpes, she does feel that Usher violated her rights by putting her at risk without warning her.

"We engaged in sexual contact", Quantasia Sharpton said at the press conference in New York City.

Does Usher have a confession to make?

Sharpton said that she was shocked at the reports, and knows she does not have the infection as she had a child past year (16).

All the encounters in the new lawsuit occurred after the settlement, Bloom said.

California law states individuals who are aware they have a STD may be guilty of a misdemeanor if they do not disclose their status to partners before engaging in sexual acts.

After Sharpton recounted her side of the story, Bloom took to the podium to explain that the new lawsuit wasn't about herpes.

However, as a highly-contagious disease that can cause high-risk pregnancies, miscarriages, and expensive treatment - Bloom says that usher should have told his sexual partners about his diagnosis. "Those are the only choices", Bloom said.

Additionally, Bloom told reporters that she's been contacted by others with similar claims, so she may be filing more lawsuits in the near future.
