In 2017, Usher was embroiled in controversy after he was sued by three people who claimed that he failed to inform them about allegedly being infected with herpes before they had sex.

The lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles, sees the R&B star stand accused of fraud, negligence, sexual battery, and intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.

Two of the three accusers, one of whom tested positive for herpes, have remained anonymous, but the third is Quantasia Sharpton – who revealed her accusation at a news conference in New York.

She told the assembled press: “When I first heard he had herpes I couldn’t believe it … I would have never consented if I had known.”

He subsequently denied the claims.
