R&B singer Usher faces new lawsuit over herpes exposure

July 25, 2017 GMT

R&B singer Usher Raymond IV, better known as Usher, is facing another lawsuit.

After news broke last week that the 38-year-old singer paid a $1.1 million settlement to a woman who claimed that he infected her with herpes, another woman has come forward making similar allegations in a lawsuit.

In the latest suit, the woman, represented by attorney Lisa Bloom, does not say whether or not she is infected by the sexually transmitted disease. However, she does say that she is concerned because she was “exposed” and says she wouldn’t have had sex with Raymond if he had disclosed he has the virus, according to TMZ.


TMZ also said that the woman in the latest suit was unaware of Raymond’s sexually transmitted disease until the news came out about his recent settlement. She is suing Raymond for negligence, battery and emotional distress while seeking at least $10 million in damages.

Raymond has not released a statement on either lawsuit.
