Hip Hop Star, Usher Raymond's Fan, 21, Sues Singer After 'He Had Sex With her on her without Revealing He Had Herpes'

Two women and a man are suing Usher for failing to tell them he had herpes before sleeping with them.
The lawsuit is set to be filed by celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom today in California.
At a Monday morning press conference in New York City, Bloom had one of the alleged victims, 21-year-old Quantasia Sharpton, speak about the nerve-wracking moment she learned about Usher's alleged diagnosis -  three years after sleeping with the singer.
Quantasia said she has always loved Usher's 'artistry and music,' so her friends took her to a concert of his to celebrate her 19th birthday a few years ago.
She says she was selected from the crowd to go backstage before the show and meet Usher - real name Usher Raymond - because of the birthday crown she was wearing.
Later, she says a security guard came up to her and asked for her number because Usher was 'interested in her'.
After the show, she says she got a call from a blocked number and it was Usher, asking her what hotel she was staying in and the room number. About an hour later, Sharpton says Usher arrived at her hotel and they had 'sexual contact'. But after he left, she 'never heard from him again'.

Sharpton said she was shocked last month to learn that Usher possibly has herpes, an incurable sexually-transmitted disease.
On July 19, documents were leaked online, showing that in 2012, Usher admitted in court documents to having herpes. Because he settled that case, it was never reported at the time.
But once the documents were made public last month, a woman who said she slept with Usher in April filed a $20million lawsuit against him for giving her the disease.  
When Sharpton read about that case, she contacted Lisa Bloom to see what her legal options were, even though she tested negative for the virus when she had a child last year.

While Sharpton doesn't have the disease, at least one of the three clients that Bloom is representing say they caught the disease, and blame Usher for it.
Sharpton says if she had known that Usher had herpes, she 'would have never consented' to sex with him.
She said she 'would not have taken the risk' because her 'health is very' important to her, especially since becoming a mother.
'I feel like my rights were violated, ' Sharpton said.
She said she decided to join the lawsuit against Usher so  he 'does not do this to anyone else'.
'You need to warn your sex they can make their own decisions,' she said.
After Sharpton recounted her side of the story, Bloom took to the podium to explain that the new lawsuit wasn't about herpes. She says herpes is a medical condition and nothing to be ashamed about.
However, as a highly-contagious disease that can cause high-risk pregnancies, miscarriages, and expensive treatment - Bloom says that usher should have told his sexual partners about his diagnosis.
She says he violated his sex partners' rights  'by failing to warn them prior to having sexual contact'.
'At least one of my clients has tested positive - and alleges that it was Mr Raymond who transmitted it,' she said.

'No one in America - even a popular celebrity - is above the law,' Bloom said, adding that ordinary people like her clients have the 'legal right to be respected'.
