Usher's Accuser Breaks Her Silence and Spills Details on Herpes Allegations

A woman who claims she had "sexual contact" with Usher when she was 19 is now suing the superstar over claims he refused to tell her he had herpes.
Quantasia Sharpton, now 21, claimed at a press conference in New York that Usher Raymond picked her out from a concert and arranged to come to her hotel room where they "engaged in sexual contact," adding: "I never heard from him again."
The young mother says she knows she does not have the STD but after reading reports that the star may have herpes contacted celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom to "find out what my rights are as a woman."
"I would never have consented had I known" he had an STD, she insisted, with Lisa Bloom adding that the star "violated" her rights "by failing to warn her" if he did have herpes, admitting that the claim is based solely on media reports that he does.
"Everyone has the legal right to be respected," she added, suggesting that under law in California refusing to reveal such information "essential transforms consensual sex into non-consensual sex."
Bloom is filing a lawsuit today on behalf of two women and one man, saying that one of the trio now has herpes � and insisted: "Since this news broke many people have reached out to me claiming that they had unprotected sex with Me Raymond since 2012."

Usher's Accuser Breaks Her Silence and Spills Details on Herpes Allegations

Quantisia Sharpton has a lot to say about her relationship with the R&B star.

Published August 7, 2017

Usher has been in a media firestorm ever since reports surfaced that he allegedly exposed several of his sexual partners to herpes. According to reports, two women and one man are planning to sue the R&B icon for putting them at risk of catching the STI, and now the first among them has come forward to reveal her identity and make a statement. 

Quantisia Sharpton just spoke out for the first time at a press conference with lawyer Lisa Bloom at her side and had a lot to say about her relationship with Ursh.

Quantisia said she met Usher at one of his concerts on her 19th birthday. She did have unprotected sex with the R&B singer. According to Quantisia, he did not reveal he had herpes. It is illegal in many states across the country to not tell a partner if you have an STI (sexually transmitted infection).

Quantisia said, while she does not have herpes, she feels violated. Watch a clip of the press conference below:

Usher has yet to speak out.
