Show Me The Receipts! Usher’s Accusers Are Joining Forces And Demanding To Know His STD Status

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."

Show Me The Receipts! Usher’s Accusers Are Joining Forces And Demanding To Know His STD Status

The drama continues.

Published September 27, 2017

Usher's multiple herpes accusers are seriously moving mountains against him. 

Laura Helm, who was previously referred to as "Jane Doe," went public and filed a $20 million lawsuit accusing Usher for allegedly giving her the virus. Separately, a man claiming he met Usher at a Koreatown spa claims they had sex and the Grammy winner gave him herpes. Another woman accused Usher of giving her the disease, which caused her twins to be stillborn. Also, there's viral superstar Quantasia Sharpton, who said they had sex at a Days Inn in November 2015.

Now, according to Bossip.com, "[Quantasia] Sharpton and her co-plaintiffs filed docs in L.A. County Superior Court asking a judge to force Usher to take a blood test by next month to prove that he doesn’t have the herpes simplex virus." They reportedly want him to take the test by October 25. 

In the meantime, Usher's team is clapping back at one of his accusers, Laura Helm. According to court docs obtained by TMZ, "she assumed the risk of catching an STD when she got in bed with him." Laura's team responded by saying she didn't know the risk because he didn't reveal his STD status and "consent to sex does not equal consent to risk of catching STDs."

Obviously, if Usher does not have the virus, taking the test would make all of this drama disappear and the accusers would look like money-hungry fools. But if he's unwilling to go there, he might need to find another way to manage this bad press, because these folks don't seem to be going away on their own.

We hope this is solved soon!
