It’s A Really Bad Month for Usher

Week before last, news broke that Grammy Award-winning entertainer, Usher was being sued by a woman claiming to have been infected with the Herpes virus by him.

Since then, the “Confessions” artist has been hit with two more accusations, with one of the “victims” coming forward to hold a recent press release on the matter.

TMZ reports that Quantasia Sharpton is accusing Usher of “cherry-picking” her at one of his concerts. He then took her to a hotel and had sex with her, allegedly.

Sharpton, who is being represented by celebrity attorney, Lisa Bloom, told reporters about the night of her 19th birthday. Bloom is filing a lawsuit on behalf of Sharpton, another woman and a man who all say Usher exposed them to the incurable disease.

“I was wearing a birthday crown and because of that I was selected to go backstage before the show,” Sharpton said. “A security guard picked me up and asked me for my number. He told me that Usher had seen me backstage and was interested.”

So far, no word from Usher’s camp regarding the lawsuits.
