One of the accusers, Quantasia Sharpton, spoke openly about her encounter two years ago with the R&B singer during a press conference at the New York Hilton Midtown. She said she’s negative for herpes.
Three more people said Monday that Usher exposed them to herpes.
The other two were identified only as Jane Doe and John Doe in court papers — and attorney Lisa Bloom said one of them does have herpes.
Sharpton said she was celebrating her 19th birthday and sporting a crown at an Usher concert when she and her friends got word they were invited backstage.
Three more plaintiffs accuse Usher of giving them herpes She gave her number to security and back at the hotel she received a call from the performer. Bloom did not allow her client to share where or when the concert took place.
“We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact. He never warned me about any STDs, it was just after my 19th birthday,” Sharpton, 21, said. “When I first heard he had herpes I couldn’t believe it...I would have never consented if I had known.”
She added that she gave birth last year and is certain she is negative for herpes. Others, though, weren’t so lucky.
