Another ex sues Usher for $20m after reportedly testing positive to Herpes
By Rita Chioma,
More woes for Usher as the singer is not only dealing with damning reports that he settled a woman with $1m for infecting her with Herpes, but now has to deal with a second lawsuit from another woman.
The unnamed woman sued Usher for $10 million for failing to mention that he has Herpes Simplex 2 before the two had unprotected sex.
New court documents obtained by TMZ claim that the female listed as Jane Doe was “devastated” to find out that she contracted the virus.
According to court docs, Doe says she and Usher used a condom the first time they had sex on April 16 in Atlanta, but when the two had intercourse again 12 days later, they did not use protection.
The woman found out about the possibility of contracting an STD from the singer after news of another lawsuit from 2012 surfaced where Usher paid $1.1 million.
In her initial lawsuit, Doe sought $10 million because she was not only concerned about being “exposed” to herpes, but she claims Usher inflicted negligence, battery and emotional distress.
The new docs indicate that she’s seeking double the original amount for emotional harm, medical bills and punitive damages.
