Looks like Rob Kardashian and Usher have something in common: attorney Lisa Bloom is coming for both of them.
After making a name for herself representing Blac Chyna in her revenge porn and harassment case against Rob Kardashian, Bloom is taking aim at Usher over his herpes scandal and seemingly recruiting women who claim they were exposed to the sexually transmitted infection by the R&B icon.
Usher took some of the negative press attention off of Kardashian and R. Kelly this week after a new report claims he paid a woman $1.1 million in hush money because he infected her with herpes. Since then, another woman has come forward with claims that she hooked up with Usher, who married his manager Grace Miguel in 2015, on April 16 of this year, and that the singer did not disclose he has herpes. The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, is suing Ursh for $10 million for exposing her to the STI (though she doesn't indicate whether or not she's infected).
This is where Bloom comes in. While it's not clear if the attorney is representing Jane Doe, she is making it clear to any others who fear Usher may have exposed them that she's a phone call away if they want to lawyer up:
How much unprotected sex did Usher have after his herpes diagnosis? Women are reaching out to me. How dare he endanger women's health?— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) July 22, 2017
It's also a violation of criminal law in many states to have unprotected sex without disclosure of your STD. As it should be.— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) July 22, 2017
I said the same about Charlie Sheen and represented a woman who had a similar claim against him. Protecting women's health is important. https://t.co/abCbMeJoJ4— Lisa Bloom (@LisaBloom) July 23, 2017
A quick Google search of Bloom reveals she certainly has the experience to make Usher and Kardashian's lives hell. She has previously represented victims of Charlie Sheen in a case similar to Usher's, and successfully represented actress Mischa Barton in a revenge porn case nearly identical to Chyna's.
Now, for the kicker: if you think Bloom's mission in representing female victims of sexual and domestic violence by famous men sounds familiar, kinda like Gloria Allred, that's because Bloom is Allred's daughter.
Ursh and Rob better watch out.
