Usher’s Caught Up in controversy with his insurance company, too


ABC/Fred WatkinsOn Monday in New York City, three people announced through a lawyer that they were suing Usher because he allegedly didn’t warn them he had herpes before having sexual contact with them.  

Now, it seems the singer may be in hot water with his insurance company, too.  

The company claims Usher also failed to tell it about his alleged diagnosis.

Court documents obtained by People state that the New York Marine and General Insurance Company doesn’t feel that it’s under any obligation to defend Usher in his current lawsuits, because his policy expressly states that it “does not provide coverage for an ‘insured’ who has…intentionally concealed or misrepresented any material fact or circumstance.”

In addition, the company says the policy does not cover “bodily injury…arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by insured.”  

In addition, People reports that the company claims Usher never told them that he settled a 2012 lawsuit over the same issue for over a million dollars.

As previously reported, one of Usher’s alleged victims, Quantasia Sharpton, claimed during the Monday press conference that she isn’t infected with the virus herself, but was disturbed by reports from other alleged victims.  

She says she wanted to speak out so he wouldn’t harm anyone else in the future.    

The other two alleged victims joining her in the lawsuit have chosen to remain anonymous for now.
