Usher's sex scandal saga has been raging on for some time now, with a new twist coming yesterday in the form of a surprise confession from accuser Quantasia Sharpton. The woman, who reportedly did the deed with the singer in her hotel room and, as a result, supposedly copped his STD, revealed that there was more - way more - to see. In a phone interview with Miss Jacob Kohinoor, Sharpton said that not only did she make a sex tape of their lovemaking session, but that Usher was aware of the camera being on and was totally cool with it. You can watch the clip in its entirety below.

As shocking a revelation as that was, the full story was broken by TMZ today, after Sharpton's attorney Lisa Bloom admitted that there was no sex tape. Bloom, who also happens to retain Blac Chyna as a client, is calling the whole ordeal a "misunderstanding," which might be code for the fact that she didn't know of the interview until it started blowing up online yesterday (September 5th). However, although the sex tape might be a figment of a very vivid imagination, Ms. Bloom is still confident that security camera footage from the hotel in question will prove once and for all that her client is absolutely telling the truth. However, given this new lie that Sharpton tried to pass off as a spicy piece of the puzzle, she'll have some serious credibility issues going forward if this case ever goes to trial. Where Usher is concerned, his counsel must be grinning from ear-to-ear.

This ongoing scandal hasn't stopped the R&B star from getting back into the studio and seemingly going back to basics when it comes to recapturing the hit-making magic that he once pulled off with ease. Jermaine Dupri, Rico Love and Bryan-Michael Cox have all been spotted in some studio session pictures that have made their way online. There's no way of knowing for sure at this time, but all signs point towards a simpler Usher sound that would be a throwback to his Confessions days. You can check out those photos here.
