Usher paid 1.1million to a Woman he infected with Herpes

The singer Usher was reportedly forced to cough up $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit brought by a romantic partner who accused the R&B star of infecting her with the incurable herpes virus. The lawsuit reportedly accused Usher of knowingly spreading an incurable herpes virus infection, Radar Online reported.
The legal documents reportedly reveal that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010. The singer finalized his divorce from his first wife, Tameka Foster, in 2009. It is uncertain whether his wife was also exposed to the alleged virus infection.

The legal documents give a graphic description of the signs and symptoms of herpes virus infection that Usher reportedly showed.

The singer was said to have produced “greenish discharge” from his penis. However, that was the only sign of infection that he showed, and doctors reportedly said he was an “asymptomatic carrier.”Radar Online reported that Usher had initially admitted to the victim that he might have been exposed to infection with the virus, but he later claimed that test results returned negative. Usher was reportedly able to persuade the victim that he was actually never infected with the virus.

Usher then reportedly engaged in “rigorous” unprotected sex with the unidentified partner.

“Believing Raymond’s statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship,” the attorneys for the plaintiff reportedly wrote in the legal complaint demanding damages.

The pair continued to have unprotected “romps” for three weeks until the victim began to feel “very sick,” according to the legal documents.

 The victim had a “fever of 100 degrees, chills, headache, and aches and pains.” She also developed “lesions and blisters in her vagina,” the legal documents reportedly said.

The victim, terrified by the unexpected signs and symptoms of an STD, rushed to the hospital where doctors diagnosed incurable herpes infection after conducting tests. The doctors also reportedly confirmed that the victim’s infection was a first-time infection, indicating that she got the infection from Usher.

The victim accused Usher of “consciously and purposefully” withholding information that he had a previous herpes diagnosis before having “unprotected sex” with her.

The victim filed the complaint at the Superior Court in Los Angeles, California. California law compels individuals who are infected with herpes, and who, reasonably, should now that they are infected to avoid having sex or any form of sexual contact with uninfected partners.

When the victim later confronted Usher and accused him of infecting her with herpes, he admitted that he was carrying the virus and came to her two days later with his doctor, according to Radar Online.

Colin Kaepernick Appears to Respond To Michael Vicks advice 

In a segment on Fox Sports 1’s Speak for Yourself on Monday night, Vick said that the former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick should consider chopping his fro so that he can get a JOB. “First thing we’ve got to get Colin to do is cut his hair.”

 Listen, I’m not up here to try to be politically correct. Even if he puts cornrows in there. I don’t think he should represent himself in that way. Just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut. You know, why not? You’re already dealing with a lot. I just think perception and image is everything. This is not the Colin Kaepernick that we’ve known since he entered the National Football League,”

R- Kelly Is Holding Women Against Their Will In A ‘Cult’

Update:  A rep for the singer tells TMZ, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”

report from BuzzFeed claims that R. Kelly is holding women against their will in what one parent described as a “cult.  R-Kelly has had trouble with the law before, the infamous pee tape and secret marriage to Aaliayh.  

The Report states, R-Kelly keeps six women in homes in Chicago and Atlanta, and “controls every aspect of their lives: dictating what they eat, how they dress, when they bathe, when they sleep, and how they engage in sexual encounters that he records.” Cheryl Mack, who worked as R. Kelly’s personal assistant beginning in 2013, called him a “master at mind control.”

Mack, [Kitti] Jones, and [Asante] McGee claim that women who live with Kelly, who he calls his “babies,” are required to call him “Daddy” and must ask his permission to leave the Chicago recording studio or their assigned rooms in the “guest house” Kelly rents near his own rented mansion in suburban Atlanta. A black SUV with a burly driver behind the wheel is almost always parked outside both locations. Kelly confiscates the women’s cell phones, they said, so they cannot contact their friends and family; he gives them new phones that they are only allowed to use to contact him or others with his permission. Kelly films his sexual activities, McGee and Jones said, and shows the videos to men in his circle.
