A Shocking Revelation!
Paying It Off
According to the court document, Usher, whose net worth is 180 million, posted a check for the victim’s medical bills that totalled $2,754.40.
He has been accused of “consciously and purposefully” neglecting to inform his partner that he was carrying herpes and having unprotected s-x with her. According to Radar, this complaint was filed at the Superior Court in Los Angeles.
Because it took place in California, it’s important to note that that state’s law requires that ” a person who knows or should know they are infected with genital herpes to avoid sexual contact with an uninfected person — or to warn potential partners before sexual contact occurs.”
“Taking Care of Things”
After contracting symptoms, the victim’s test results confirmed she was infected. According to Radar, a file in the settlement reads: “In a series of telephone conversations and online chat sessions, [Usher] has apologized for infecting [her] and told her he would take care of things.”
However, the victim said she “feels that her health and body have been ruined” and that she “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed… knowing there is no cure.”
Usher settled with his victim for a total of $1.1 million on December 28th, 2012.
