ABC/Fred WatkinsMonday, attorney Lisa Bloom claimed three women reached out to her for legal help against Usher, alleging the R&B singer infected them with the herpes virus.
Now, one of the singer’s accusers is reportedly seeking $20 million “for emotional harm, medical bills and punitive damages,” according to TMZ. The unidentified woman previously sought $10 million from the entertainer.
The woman, presently identified as Jane Doe, claims that she went to get tested for herpes after legal documents from 2012 surfaced last week, which allege Usher knowingly infected another woman with the sexually transmitted disease without telling her.
That individual subsequently sued the recording artist and was awarded $1.1 million from him at the time.
When news of Usher’s 2012 scandal came to light last week, he began to trend on social media, though he still has yet to publicly respond.
However, ex-wife Tameka Foster, replied to the scandal on Instagram last week, letting everyone know that the alleged lawsuit has “NOTHING” to do with her and that she’s in good health.
Usher and Tameka divorced in 2009. They share two sons: Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.
In 2015, Usher married music executive Grace Miguel.
