First Woman in Usher Herpes Lawsuit Speaks at Press Conference [VIDEO]
Appearing alongside attorney Lisa Bloom— who represented Blac Chyna during her case against Rob Kardashian—Sharpton claimed the R&B singer never told her he had herpes before they engaged in sexual intercourse two years ago.
During her press conference, Sharpton revealed how she first met Usher, saying she attended a concert of his for her 19th birthday when a security guard of the singer allegedly said he was “interested” in her and asked for her phone number. Later that night, Sharpton said she received a call from a “blocked number” which was Usher’s, who asked her which hotel and room number she was staying in.
“About an hour later, he arrived. We spoke for a while, and then we engaged in sexual contact. He never warned me about any STDs,” Sharpton said.
While it’s uncertain if Usher even has the sexually transmitted disease, Bloom points at a 2012 case where the singer settled with a woman who claimed he gave her herpes. The attorney argues that Usher has never denied having herpes.
As for Sharpton, her test for STDs show she does not have herpes but is suing Usher because she believes he should have told her he had the disease before sleeping with her.
