Usher Sued For $10 Million For Allegedly Exposing Another Woman To Herpes

Heading into the weekend, details surfaced about a potential $10 million lawsuit getting thrown at Usher over an alleged unprotected sexual encounter.

According to TMZ, court documents reveal that the woman, who did not identify herself, had sex with Usher earlier this year and they did not use a condom, even though they'd used protection during a previous sexual encounter.

Obviously we don't know how many women are reaching out to Bloom, but the way she words that - coupled with how big the story has already been - isn't a great look for Usher.

According to California state law, where Usher now resides, it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

The woman claims that Usher didn't tell her that he had herpes before the pair hooked up three months ago.

The "Yeah!" singer is reportedly facing a huge lawsuit.

Experts say that one out of every six people between the ages of 14 to 49 carry the herpes virus, which can be transmitted through oral, anal or vaginal intercourse.

She is seeking compensation for Usher's alleged negligence and battery and for the emotional distress the situation caused her.

Court documents in that case, first published by Radar Online, show that the U Got It Bad singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with the incurable condition between 2009-2010. She claimed that she felt exposed to herpes because of this. "Jane Doe" also expressed that while she's not infected, she is concerned because she was "exposed".

Usher paid for the stylist's medical bills, a reported $2,754.40 in 2012 and settled the suit on December 28, 2012.
