Usher fan, 21, sues the singer claiming ‘he had sex with her on her birthday without revealing he had herpes’

AN USHER fan is suing the star claiming “he had sex with her on her 19th birthday without admitting he had herpes” after “choosing her” from a concert crowd.

Quantasia Sharpton is among two women and a man who have started legal proceedings against the singer over allegations he didn’t reveal he had the STD before bedding them.

The lawsuit, obtained by DailyMail.com, claims Usher had vaginal sex with at least one of the two women and had “unprotected sex” with the man.

The three plaintiffs claim they had unprotected sex, or oral sex, with Usher because he is a “revered celebrity in their eyes who they believed could be loved and trusted.”

The lawsuit has been filed by celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom in California.

At a New York press conference on Monday, Sharpton, now 21, spoke about the moment she learned about Usher’s alleged diagnosis –  three years after sleeping with the singer.

She said she was a big fan of Usher so her friends took her to a concert of his to celebrate her birthday.

She claims she was chosen from the crowd to go backstage and meet Usher – real name Usher Raymond – because of the birthday crown she was wearing.

Usher has never publicly denied having herpes[/caption]

After the show she said she received a call from the star and they arranged to meet at her hotel room.

She claims Usher arrived at her hotel and they had “sexual contact” before leaving.

Sharpton revealed she had “never heard from him again”.

She said she was then shocked to learn Usher possibly has herpes, an incurable sexually-transmitted disease.

On July 19, documents were leaked online, showing in 2012 Usher admitted in court documents to having herpes. He settled that case and it was never reported at the time.

But once the documents were made public, a woman who said she slept with Usher in April filed a $20m lawsuit against him for giving her the disease.

When Sharpton read about that case, she contacted lawyer Bloom – even though she tested negative for the virus when she had a child last year.

Although she doesn’t have the STD at least one of the other two being represented by Bloom claims they have – and blame Usher.

Sharpton said if she had known that Usher had herpes she wouldn’t have “had sex with him.”

“I feel like my rights were violated,”  she said adding she decided to join the lawsuit so he “does not do this to anyone else.”

“You need to warn your sex partners…so they can make their own decisions,” she said.

It’s now been revealed Sharpton had revealed on social media that she needed money.

Exactly one week before the press conference, Sharpton – who goes by Angel Valentino on social media – wrote on Facebook: “I need some money”, TMZ reports.

Bloom said Usher had ” violated his sex partners” rights  “by failing to warn them prior to having sexual contact”.

“At least one of my clients has tested positive – and alleges that it was Mr Raymond who transmitted it,'”she said.

“No one in America – even a popular celebrity – is above the law.”

Usher has never publicly denied having herpes, or made an effort to contact them (the three) to confirm or deny the reports, the lawsuit states.

It adds the alleged victims have suffered severe emotional distress, birthing complications, stress, depression and anxiety about contracting or being exposed to herpes.

Court filings claim that in the event that Usher doesn’t have herpes, his conduct has still caused “severe emotional distress” since he has allowed them to worry that he has exposed them to the virus.

Bloom says that her clients are not asking for a specific amount of money, and they will be fine with whatever a jury decides to award, if they win the case.

It’s “really not about money,” she said.
