2nd woman sues Usher about herpes, this time for much more money

Usher reportedly has been hit with a $10 million lawsuit by another woman who claims the R&B superstar allegedly exposed to an STD without telling her. When news of that settlement-and of the attendant medical facts-came out, this woman, who claims she had sex with Usher twice this past April (once unprotected), became anxious that she was "exposed" to herpes. In the documents, she says there was some heavy petting, some kissing, and she performed oral sex on him. While the suit is said to state that Usher did in fact wear a condom the first time, they engaged in unprotected sex the second time around at a hotel in New Orleans. She also went on to say that if Usher would have been forthcoming about his health she would have not had sex with him.

You can only imagine what went through Jane Doe's mind when she read news reports about Usher admitting in docs, connected to an earlier legal case, that he's infected with herpes.

The settlement was reported only a couple of days ago by Radar Online, which claimed that Usher was officially diagnosed with the disease, so the singer knew that he was suffering from it. She's suing Usher for $10 million. It states in the suit that Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with herpes around 2009 or 2010 - around the time he split from his wife Tameka Foster.

In California, "it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit a sexually transmitted disease", according to the Daily News. However, court documents stated he had released a "greenish discharge" from his penis.

As of yet, Usher has not responded publicly to reports about either lawsuit. She claimed that she felt exposed to herpes because of this.
