But first, some context: Earlier this year, Usher found himself in hot water after a woman filed a lawsuit against him for allegedly infecting her with Herpes. Court documents, obtained by TMZ, show that the 38-year-old settled the lawsuit out of court for a cool $1.38 million. The woman’s identity remains unknown. We do, however, know that she is a celebrity stylist.
Now, after reading about this case, a second woman has come forward and is seeking $12.6 million in damages for negligence, battery and emotional distress. She says that she had no idea about Usher’s STD until she read about the other lawsuit taken out against him.
TMZ reports that when the woman hooked up with Usher at her Atlanta home on April 16, the pair used a condom. However, when they had sex again 12 days later, they did not use a condom.
The court documents for this new case, also obtained by Radar Online, do not explicitly state that the second woman contracted the Herpes Simplex 2 virus. Instead, she says that she is worried she was ‘exposed’ to the virus.
More news as we get it.
