Usher Raymond Responds to STD Claims

A lot of speculation and misdirection when it comes to separating the truth and lies in the Usher Raymond STD drama

Usher Raymond, better known as Usher, is back in the news. As you probably know, two women and a man represented by attorney Lisa Bloom sued the R&B singer, saying he allegedly had sexual relations with them in the past without telling them he has the STD. Bloom is now saying, one tested positive for the herpes virus.

However, Usher’s legal team is having none of it, recently filing a response saying that the singer "general and specifically denies each and every allegation contained in the complaint and the entirety thereof, including each purported cause of action contained therein."

Now, many people are asking why is Usher having unprotected sex if he knows he has herpes.

However, his attorneys are saying, he doesn’t have herpes, but even if he does, it is your responsibility to protect you!

Woman Speaks Out at Press Conference in Usher Herpes Saga

VIDEO: Attorney Lisa Bloom holds press conference in New York City standing by the side of brave female who accuses Usher of exposing her to herpes

Today, attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference in New York City, to announce that her law firm would be filing a lawsuit against R&B singer, Usher Raymond IV, on behalf of her client, Quantasia Sharpton, and two other people.

At issue, according to Attorney Bloom, Usher allegedly had sexual contact with people without telling them that he was infected with herpes.

According to Ms. Sharpton, she came in contact with Usher after attending one of his concerts. Ms. Sharpton said she was wearing a crown for her birthday at the Usher concert and she and her friends were invited backstage. She gave her number to security and then back at the hotel she received a call from the She Got It Bad singer.

“We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact. He never warned me about any STDs, it was just after my 19th birthday,” Sharpton, 21, said during the press conference. “When I first heard he had herpes I couldn’t believe it...I would have never consented if I had known.”

After Ms. Sharpton gave her statement, Attorney Bloom said in part:

“By filing this lawsuit, we seek to ascertain the truth. We hope the reports are not true. We hope that Mr. Raymond is negative and that this can all be cleared up quickly. We hope that he has not knowingly endangered his sex partners, fans who revered him, and who were thrilled to receive his personal attention. In addition to the three plaintiffs in this lawsuit, several other individuals have contacted me with the same concerns. My Bloom firm team is in the process of reviewing their facts, evidence, and witnesses as we do in any case and as we have done for the three plaintiffs who are suing today. So more people may be added in the days to come. No one in America, not even a popular celebrity is above the law. And everyone, even ordinary people who find themselves swept away by a superstar has the legal right to be respected, which includes being warned about STDs so that each person can make a decision about her own health and her own body.”

The other two people represented by the Bloom Firm are a woman and a man, identified as Jane Doe and John Doe.
