The R&B superstar paid $1.1 million to settle a 2012 lawsuit for spreading herpes to an unnamed ex, who reportedly works as a celebrity stylist.

Usher was accused of “consciously and purposefully” withholding his diagnosis from the woman “and continued to have unprotected sex” with her. He also allegedly told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis.
The woman was tested and diagnosed with herpes after suffering from vaginal sores, fevers and chills, according to the court papers.
he stylist reportedly said she “feels that her health and body have been ruined” and “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”
According to New York Daily News, California law states that it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit a STD.
Court papers showed that the singer paid $2,754.40 of the victim’s medical bills in 2012.
He eventually settled with the woman on Dec. 28, 2012, settling for a total of $1.1 million.
