One of the women who came forward and accused megastar R&B singer, Usher, of sleeping with her without informing her that he had genital herpes has a supporter.
Earlier this week, Quantasia Sharpton, appeared at a press conference along with celebrity lawyer, Lisa Bloom, and disclosed that she was hand-picked from a crowd to come onstage and eventually back stage with Usher.
According to TMZ, an employee of the Days Inn in Atlantic City says she can confirm the pair were in fact together at the hotel. The concert in question reportedly took place in the city on Nov. 15, 2014. Sharpton was believed to be in attendance, and has a pic of herself in a birthday tiara posing with Usher’s opening act, August Alsina.
Those claiming to be close to Usher’s camp say the singer never slept with Sharpton. It was also announced that he plans to sue her and two other people (a man and a woman) for defamation connected to the accusations.
The hotel is less than a mile from where the concert took place, according to TMZ. The media outlet claims to have talked to a woman who works there who said she saw Usher enter the lobby shortly after midnight on Nov. 16. She says Sharpton came down, said hello to the “Let It Burn” singer and took him to her room.
The woman says that while she asked him for a pic, he told her he’d take one with her before he left the hotel. She says she waited for one hour, but he never returned.
Sharpton claims to have had her sexual encounter with Usher at the hotel. So far, reps for the singer have not responded to the new developments.
