Usher reportedly settled with a woman after giving her herpes back in 2012.
According to a new story from Radar Online, Usher Raymond reportedly paid out $1.1 million dollars back in December of 2012 to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed Usher infected her with herpes, court documents show.
Usher was reportedly diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, the court papers state. But nevertheless, he had unprotected sex with one of the bridemaids of his ex-wife Tameeka Foster (a woman named Maya Fox-Davis). The law in California states it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD, which Usher allegedly did when he told the victim (Maya) he had tested negative for the virus.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal docs said. The woman was eventually later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in court papers.
Usher also ended up paying Maya's medical bills back in 2012 as well, $2,754.40 in all to be exact. That’s also the time when he & his doctor called the woman together to tell her that the singer did indeed carry the herpes virus.
The woman says she “feels that her health and body have been ruined,” and she “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”
