Fans of Usher will be shocked to read that the squeaky clean star decided to pay out over $1.1 million to a woman who claimed he’d given her herpes.

The singer, 38, was accused in court papers of ‘consciously and purposefully’ withholding the fact he’d contracted the sexually-transmitted disease from a celebrity stylist and ‘continued to have unprotected sex’ with her.

In the paperwork, she said she ‘feels that her health and body have been ruined’ and ‘has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.’

According to RadarOnline, Usher was diagnosed with the disease around 2009 and 2010, roughly when he filed for divorce from ex-wife Tameka Foster, and allegedly passed it on to the stylist.

However, after she began to feel ill, he allegedly told the unnamed woman he had tested negative for the virus, despite a ‘greenish discharge’ from his penis.

Court documents showed the ‘U Got It Bad’ hitmaker – who is married to Grace Miguel – paid $2,754.40 of the woman’s medical bills in 2012 and he settled the lawsuit on 28 December 2012 for a total of $1.1 million.

Meanwhile, his ex-wife Tameka – the mother of the star’s sons Usher, nine, and eight-year-old Naviyd – has insisted the case has “nothing” to do with her and she’s in “good health”.
