Woman Claims Singer Exposed Her to STDs: Who’s To Blame Here?

R&B singer Usher has another hit.  It’s not a hit record, but  he’s been hit with a lawsuit by three different young people claiming the singer exposed them to STDs without disclosing his status to them prior to contact.

  Monday, Quantasia Sharpton held a news conference with her attorney Lisa Bloom to give the details of her encounter with Usher.

Sharpton claims that she and two of her friends who are not identified have joined together to sue Usher who put them at risk of contracting herpes.  One of  the three litigants has reportedly has tested positive for the infection and points the finger at Usher.

The story gets confusing, so strap in.  Sharpton says she celebrated her 19th birthday by attending an Usher concert which came with what may have seemed like a birthday wish come true when she was chosen from the crowd and invited back stage. Sharpton says at one point a security team member came up and asked for her number saying “Usher had seen me back stage and was interested” in me.  Sharpton says after the concert, she and her two friends (one male, one female) returned to their hotel when she claims the singer called her and asked what hotel she was staying in and for her room number.  Here’s what Sharpton says happened after the call….”About an hour later he arrived. We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact. He never warned me about any STDs…I never heard from him again.”

   Her story is sad, but similar to stories we heard before in one-night stands gone wrong.  Whether it’s Bill Cosby or R. Kelly, women who think that this is a dream come true wake up to discover a nightmare when the light of reality shows up. Whether they feel used or was running a long con, somehow the once ‘greatest moment of my life’ gets a price tag and turns into ‘the worst decision I ever made’.  These young women have to see that their brief brush with fame is all too often just that…brief.  There will be no fairy tale ending where the celebrity calls again and declares an undying love for you forever.
 As for Usher, the court will weigh his culpability in all this.  Sleeping around and using fans because you think it is a privilege that comes with celebrity is disgusting but legal (if the young women are of legal age and consent); Sleeping with people when you know you have an STD and not divulging that info prior to sexual encounters isn’t just selfish and reckless, it’s illegal in some states. If found guilty, a person intentionally sleeping around and not sharing their status is typically a violation of both civil and criminal laws. The entire HIV disclosure has changed the conversation and legality about engaging with partners and not sharing crucial medical status.  But all of this may be theoretical until one thing is determined…does Usher have an STD?
   Reports of Usher’s having herpes starting swirling after a news outlet reported that another woman alleging the same crime of having been infected by the singer was supposedly paid $1 million dollars to keep quiet.  Of course, if that’s true, Usher squandered that mill because the story got out any way.
   To date, Usher has not confirmed or denied the STDs, herpes story and whether he’s infected.  But his silence may be broken soon.  Bloom says other women have contacted her also claiming to be a victim and she says additional lawsuits may be forthcoming.
   What do you think…are women the poor victims of a celebrity looking to get his their sexual kicks and then discard them?  Or these grown women who agree to engage with celebrities and change their minds later when they realize what they have done?

  1. I blame them both, this young lady did not know Usher, she knew of him, and had she gave a damn about herself as a woman, she should have never given him her phone # or hotel room number. Pickups are a dime a dozen for guys in the entertainment industry, the first thing she needs to do is learn to love and respect herself, which she apparently does not do…as for Usher, he should not have been having sex with anyone without being man enough to tell the person that he had an STD, therefore it would have been left up to her as to weather she wanted to continue with taking a chance on being on the receiving end of an STD and being able to brag to friends that she had sex with Usher. Usher did not give a damn about her and she did not give a damn about herself! They were both wrong!!

  2. NBA Is Fixed is Absolutely Correct, We as Black People Is In A Crisis….We Are A War, and the War is directed at Black People, especially the Black man. Where is the story on Charlie Sheen and his Sexually Exploits, spreading Aides Among A Vast Number of Women…..What Happened To That Story, And Why The Black Bloggers,Black Publications,Shows..etc Didn’t Jump And Report That Story?…..It Is Fear Of This System Of Racist White Supremacy .” I am Not Surprise At That These Two Money/Publicity Hungry Vampires Gloria Allred And Lisa Bloom (Who At One Time I Felt Was A Good Reporter) Will Use And Exploit This Young Sister As Well As Others.We Are Living In The Final Days Of Amerika, The Great Roman Empire Is On It’s Last Leg. The Attack And Destruction Of The Black Man/Men is The Order That Has Been Given. And I’m Very, Very Disappointed That This News Outlet Call “The Reel” Will Participate In This Barrage of Hatred Of Black Men….Bill Cosby….Ushers …R. Kelly….Bobby Valentino…Biggy…Tupac…Pimp C…Pidogy… So Many..So Many of Our Brothers Have Been Destroyed Either They Spoke Out Against The Illuminati ,The Deep State Government Or Made A Move They Didn’t Agree With! For Instance Bill Cosby,( Not Really Understanding How The System of Racist White Supremacy Works) Attempted To Purchase NBC, They Murdered His Son,Now They Are Attempting To Destroy Him Completely, And Scared Foolishly Niggas Are/Have Joined In To Assist. Pimp Children Was Adamantly Speaking Out Against Homosexuality in Hip-hop….He Was Murdered. Tupac Attempting To Consciously Organize The Gangs, Through Rap Encouraging Them To Stop Killing Each Other. If We Can’t See, Or We Got This Much Fear That We Can’t See That This is A Conspiracy To Exterminate Black People Totally Blackmen As Well As Black Women. And All Of You No Matter Who You Are that’s Working Against The Rise Of The Original People,Will Go Down With Satan!!!!!

  3. This young lady needs her butt whooped. I don’t care about who you are, but you have got to wrap it up. She knew who he was and don’t know why she thought he would have called her after that. So, how does it feel to get such a nasty birthday gift on your 19th birthday that will be with you for a long time. I surely hope you haven’t passed it on to anyone else since then. This brief encounter has left you with a lifetime of pain, currently, there is no cure for herpes. Using condoms may help lower this risk but it will not get rid of the risk completely. To all my young people just be careful out there when having sex STD’s, HIV/AIDS is alive and well.

  4. Very interesting that white supremacy is using a plus size black woman to play the role of the victim. By the way, we should always suspect something devious if Lisa Bloom or Gloria Allred are involved. Those two white women’s number one agenda is to financially extort and destroy rich black men! My guess is white supremacy is using this black woman so they can get black women to despise Usher. Don’t trust everything you see on tv. I’m not saying Usher is guilty or innocent. Remember, network news is controlled by the same people who are lynching us!

  5. Quote from Eddie Griffin, “Nobody leaves this business clean.”

    What Eddie Griffin means is every black celebrity will never leave planet Earth with a perfect, clean legacy. Meanwhile, white celebrities die, they are honored and celebrated for their accomplishments. Their scandals are black outed by mainstream media. This will continue to happen because we have no power or jurisdiction in mainstream media. In other words, we don’t own anything.

  6. Black men are under attack! The white owed corporate media has reported serious scandals involving R Kelly, Bobby Valentino, Bill Cosby and Usher. Scandals involving white celebrities are not reported. Mainstream media never talks about Katie Holmes having herpes. She has pictures on the internet which shows her herpes breakout; I’m not making this up. This is the same racist hypocrisy that mainstream media loves to broadcast because they are making lots of money! At the same time, they are destroying the legacy and careers of celebrity black men.
