On Monday, Quantasia Sharpton stepped forward as the first woman to publicly reveal herself in a number of lawsuits against Usher claiming the singer had sex with women without telling them he had herpes.
Up until this point, Usher's camp hasn't said much about the rumor, but according to TMZ, he's breaking his silence. According to sources, Miguel thinks the herpes controversy is an attack on her husband because he has a history with the first woman who sued him.
Quantasia Sharpton held a press conference with lawyer Lisa Bloom, claiming she was exposed to herpes after having sex with the singer after meeting at his concert.
Sharpton started getting cooked on these Twitter streets the moment she announced she was suing Usher for exposing her to genital herpes.
Usher's wife, Grace Miguel, who's been married to Usher for two years, is also reportedly sticking by her man. Sources tell TMZ that she isn't giving the lawsuits any merit. She claimed that he had security get her number and then called her and met up with her at a hotel, where they had sex. According to sources, the R&B star regularly brings "a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels" as an "esteem booster". In spite of the TMZ article, Usher has not come forward and made an official statement about the herpes allegations in public.
Sharpton and the other plaintiffs would not have had sex with the entertainer if he had told them he had herpes beforehand, the complaint states.
Controversial comedian Lil Duval came to Usher's defense, tweeting that he refused to believe that Usher had sex with Sharpton though he put it in more obscene terms.
However, Usher was emphatic in saying he "absolutely didn't hook up" with Sharpton. In addition, Bloom claims she was contacted by others and may file additional lawsuits.
