Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed he infected her with herpes, according to court documents.

Usher was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, according to the court papers. However, Usher had unprotected sex with the claimant without confessing that he was carrying the virus.


In California it is  illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD. Usher allegedly told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis, the court papers say.

“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal docs said.

The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.

 Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012 and that’s when Usher’s doctor called the woman to tell her that Usher was carrying the virus.

The alleged victim was one of the bridesmaid in Usher and Tameka’s wedding. SMH
