Usher says he did not sleep with herpes accuser for this reason

Usher says he did not sleep with herpes accuser for this reason

Quantasia Sharpton held a press conference with lawyer Lisa Bloom, claiming she was exposed to herpes after having sex with the singer after meeting at his concert. A source said that Usher "looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels".

The company also says Usher never made mention of the fact he settled a prior lawsuit in 2012 for $1.1 million over the same issue.

Well, sources tell TMZ that the singer has told them that while he doesn't remember pulling her onstage, he absolutely denies that he ever hooked up with her. However he said he did not have sex with her.

Sharpton is one of three Usher accusers represented by Bloom, but she is the only one who is not doing so anonymously. That's when Usher allegedly told his people to get Sharpton's phone number -- according to Quantasia -- and later had sex with Sharpton. On Tuesday, social posts from Sharpton showed her discussing her financial situation, explaining that she "needed money".

In her version of events, Sharpton said she was at an Usher concert several years ago when she was 19.

Usher has been front page news over his alleged genital herpes, sexual exploits and sexual partner choice.

The controversy surrounding Usher's herpes scandal continues to unfold with more people making claims that the superstar R&B artist gave them the STD. She also confirmed that one of the three people who recently filed a lawsuit against Usher tested positive for the virus.

According to New York Marine and General Insurance Company's (NYMG) filing - submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday - the firm believes that it is under no obligation to defend Usher in his current lawsuits in Georgia and California, or any other potential lawsuits of a similar nature. Dupri captioned the clip: "To the studio we go".
