There are a few things that should be disclosed early on in a sexual relationship. For me personally, I like to know if someone is prone to anything weird, like only answering to Shrek (I’m not against it, I just want a heads-up). Others are more concerned with stuff like whether or not the person they’re about to hook up with has herpes. That’s a pretty common one to disclose. Although according to Radar, not for Usher.
Radar claims that Usher (Usher Usher) found himself in the middle of a herpes lawsuit scandal back in 2012. Radar got their hands on some alleged legal documents filed in Los Angeles accusing 38-year-old Usher of infecting a woman described as a “celebrity stylist” with herpes in 2009 or 2010. Usher filed for divorce from Tameka Foster back in 2009, and this herpes event allegedly happened after that.
According to the documents, Usher’s doctors allegedly claimed that he was an “asymptomatic carrier.” However, earlier on in their relationship – and this is a little gross – the woman claims a green discharge was seen oozing from his dick. Usher allegedly claimed to be concerned, but later convinced the woman that he got an STD exam, and that it came back negative. The woman’s lawyer said she believed what Usher told her, and they continued to have “rigorous unprotected sex.”
After three weeks of sex with Usher – who allegedly went by “Papa Bear” in their messages – the woman alleged she started to feel really sick and run a high temperature. She also saw – you guessed it – sores down there. After a trip to the doctor, she was diagnosed with herpes. According to Radar, the woman confronted Usher, who contacted her two days later with his doctor, who confirmed Usher had herpes.
California law states that a person has to disclose (or at least warn) potential partners of a herpes diagnosis. So the woman sued Papa Bear for “consciously and purposefully” withholding that he had herpes while continuing to have sex with her.
Radar claims Usher settled that lawsuit in December of 2012 for $1.1 million. And of course, this is all coming from the mouth of Radar, so who knows. But I will say I’m a little skeptical of Usher now that I know he might have a habit of hiding the truth. I mean, was that even the tip of his penis in that Snapchat Story? Or was it just a piece of soap that fell on the floor? I don’t know what to believe.
