Sings::If I’m gonna tell it then I gotta tell it all
Damn near cried when I got that phone call
I’m so throwed and I don’t know what to do::
According to Radar Online, Usher, 38, settled a lawsuit for 1.1 million dollars, after it was discovered he gave a woman he was dating herpes. The legal documents show that Usher knew of his Herpes status back in 2009-2010. If you recall, Usher and his first wife, Tameka Foster divorced in November of 2009, they share two sons.
A “greenish discharge” once oozed from Usher’s penis and the women showed concern for him. However, Usher convinced her that he has a STD exam and all results showed up negative. Taking him for his word they continued to have unprotected sex. Until one day the victim became ill with chills and a fever of 100 degrees. She went to urgent care where a doctor diagnosed her with Herpes. With his doctor on the phone he admitted to the victim he knew of his status for some time.
California law states:
Anyone who has any kind of infectious, communicable, or contagious disease in California commits a crime if that person exposes him or herself to others. This crime is punishable as a misdemeanor offense. You also commit this crime if you knowingly expose someone else whom you know has such a disease to other people.
In the documents the victim states her health and body have been ruined. They reached a settlement for 1.1 million in December of 2012. According to the CDC, about one out of every six people aged 14 to 49 years have genital herpes. Most people with the disease don’t show any symptoms so its important to get tested.
Usher is straight dirty for what he did to this women. He knew his status and willingly exposed her to an incurable disease. SHAME ON YOU USHER!
