A woman who accused Usher of exposing her to herpes now confirms she contracted the STD.
The “U Got It Bad” singer, after a $1.1 million settlement with a woman who claimed he infected her with herpes, now faces a $20 million lawsuit from a second woman, who just days ago filed suit for $10 million and has now upped her demands after finding out she contracted the disease, TMZ reports.
Jane Doe, as she is referred to in the suit, reportedly found out the results on Saturday and was “devastated,” according to the gossip site. She increased her demands after learning she tested positive, citing emotional distress, medical bills and punitive damages, according to TMZ.
She claims she performed oral sex on Usher and had sex with him while using a condom during an April encounter in Atlanta, and that the pair then had unprotected sex days later in New Orleans, TMZ reports.
She insists she never would have slept with Usher if she was aware he was infected.
The suit alleges Usher never warned the woman that he was carrying the herpes virus — and she only recently learned she could be infected after reading recent reports that the “U Got it Bad” singer paid $1.1 million to another woman who claimed the R&B star infected her with herpes.
RadarOnline published documents pertaining to the 2012 settlement, in which the stylist accused him of infecting her.
The suit alleges Usher Raymond IV was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010 — around the time he split from his first wife Tameka Foster.
The “Confessions” singer married a former executive chef for “The Cosby Show,” Grace Miguel, in 2010.
Usher has yet to publicly comment on the allegations.
U.S. Senator John McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, according to a statement released by the Mayo Clinic on his behalf on Wednesday (July 19).
The statement read, “On Friday, July 14, Sen. John McCain underwent a procedure to remove a blood clot from above his left eye at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.
Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.
The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.
The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent.”
A statement was also released by McCain’s office, “Senator McCain appreciates the outpouring of support he has received over the last few days. He is in good spirits as he continues to recover at home with his family in Arizona. He is grateful to the doctors and staff at Mayo Clinic for their outstanding care, and is confident that any future treatment will be effective. Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate.”
