Woman who accuses Usher of exposing her to genital herpes says she has a sex tape with him
The woman accusing Usher of exposing her to genital herpes says she has a sex tape of the two of them.
Quantasia Sharpton told YouTube vlogger Miss Jacob Kohinoor that she filmed the alleged sex act with the 'U Remind Me' singer and claims he knew he was being recorded, according to TMZ.
The 21-year-old is one of three people alleging that sexual encounters with the R&B star exposed them to herpes.
Sharpton said she attended an Usher concert in November 2014 held in Atlantic City, New Jersey, to celebrate her 19th birthday.
She said she was picked from the crowd and invited backstage to meet the singer.
Sharpton says that, while backstage, a security guard took down her phone number and she later received a call from Usher - after which they ended up at her hotel room and had sex.
But she insists he never told her he has genital herpes.
'He never warned me about any STDs,' Sharpton said during a press conference last month with her attorney, Lisa Bloom.
'When I first heard reports that he had herpes, I couldn't believe it. I had a child a year ago, and I knew I was negative. But I contacted Lisa Bloom to find out what my rights are as a woman.
'Although I am negative, I was upset by the reports, because I would never have consented if I had known. I would not have taken a risk of getting an incurable disease.'
The other two fans, a man and woman, were identified only as John Doe and Jane Doe in the lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
In July, documents leaked online alleged that Usher has been a carrier of the virus since 2009 or 2010 and that he infected a partner with herpes in 2012.
The leaked documents also alleged that Usher paid the woman's medical bills and settled what is alleged to be a civil suit for $1.1million.
Usher, 38, has denied Sharpton's claims against him, even telling TMZ that Sharpton 'wasn't his type’.
TMZ reported, however, that an ex-staffer at the Days Inn in Atlantic City said she saw Usher come into the lobby shortly after midnight.
The former employee says Sharpton came down, greeted the singer in the lobby and brought him to her room.
Bloom is currently attempting to subpoena the surveillance video that shows Usher going to the hotel room.
