Usher has been in the news recently for all the wrong reasons. He’s been plagued with tons of different rumors about his ex-wife, and things seem to be catching up to him. The rumors stated that he allegedly gave his ex-wife’s bridesmaid herpes. Not only that but he had to pay her a $1.1 million settlement because of it.
After the rumors hit the internet Usher started to get a ton of hate from the fans, and he’s been ridiculed by tons of people he’s never met. It got so bad that he had to completely disable the comments on a bunch of his Instagram posts.
Women have been consistently coming forward with lawsuits against Usher. Lawyer Lisa Bloom has made claims that several different women have reached out to her and said that they are “endangered” because they had unprotected sex with the singer while unaware of the possibility of contracting herpes. One woman even ended up adjusting her current lawsuit against the singer, taking it from $10 million to $40 million after she tested positive for the disease.
“Endangering women’s healthy by having unprotected sex with herpes? Three women have now reached out to me about Usher. Stay tuned,” she tweeted. “It’s also a violation of criminal law in many states to have unprotected sex without disclosure of your STD. As it should be. How much unprotected sex did Usher have after his herpes diagnosis? Women are reaching out to me. How dare he endanger women’s health?”
Usher is under a ton of scrutiny, but rapper The Game came to his defense on Instagram:
“Stop tryna tear n***as down with all this maybe bogus sh*t… Jane Doe this & Jane Doe that… a week ago everybody were Usher fans, now because of a health condition he may or may not have, its f**k Usher, stay away from him, his wife should’ve done this etc… 1/2 the people commenting in here ain’t even took a shower or brushed they teeth this morning yet & got dirty d**ks & fish market smellin’ vaginas tryna weigh in on somebody else’s life… foh & let this man live bruh.”
