According to an explosive new report, Usher and an unnamed woman recently engaged in "rigorous unprotected sex" ...
... without the singer revealing to his partner at the time that he was infected with herpes.
In court documents obtained by Radar Online, the singer was diagnosed with this sexually transmitted diseased around 2009 or 2010.
Following his divorce from Tameka Foster, Usher started sleeping with a celebrity stylist, only to have a “greenish discharge” ooze from his penis at one point.
Doctors determined that the artist was an “asymptomatic carrier” and he had no other signs of infection, the legal documents state.
After initially discussing the situation with his lover, Usher convinced her that his STD test came back negative and the two continued to have unprotected sexual intercourse.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal papers read, using Usher's last name and referencing his victim.
About three weeks after she started sleeping with Usher, the woman woke up “feeling very sick” with a “fever of 100 degrees, chills, headache, and aches and pains.”
She also “developed lesions and blisters in her vagina” and was eventually diagnosed with herpes herself.
The lawsuit states that Usher wrote a check for $2,754.40 in order to cover the woman’s medical expenses at the time.
But she later filed a lawsuit against the artist, accusing him of “consciously and purposely” withholding his diagnosis from her, despite the pair carrying on with an unsafe sexual relationship.
“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," reads the lawsuit.
In a legal declaration also in Radar's possession, the accuser said she “feels that her health and body have been ruined,” and she “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”
Usher finally settled this case with his ex-fling on December 28, 2012, paying her a total of $1.1 million.
It's a pretty ugly issue to bubble to the surface for Usher all these years later.
But we guess he can take solace in one thing:
At least he isn't R.Kelly.
