Usher is considered to be the reigning King of R&B all over the world. His second album My Way took the world by storm with its release in the late 1990s. Nice and Slow, from that album even made his first Billboard Hot 100 number-one hit. U Remind Me and U Got It Bad from his follow-up album, 8701, both reached the number-one spot in the Billboard Hot 100. Usher is one of the best-selling R&B artists of the 1990s as both of those albums sold over 8 million copies worldwide.
Usher’s fame and success remained steady with his succeeding albums up to this date. He’s already made his mark in the music industry. Confessions, his 2004 album, produced four consecutive Billboard number-one hits Yeah!, Burn, Confessions Part II, and My Boo.
Even with the stardom that he’s owned, there are times that famous people like Usher come across controversies. Subsequently, the altercation that Usher faces today is one of the biggest as his accuser asks for $20 million lawsuit against him.
“NEW YORK — A woman spoke out on Monday about her lawsuit accusing Usher of not telling her he had herpes before they had sexual intercourse.
Attorney Lisa Bloom filed the lawsuit Monday on behalf of Quantasia Sharpton, who claimed Usher never told her he had herpes, TMZ reports.
Two women and a man have claimed the singer did not disclose that he had the STD before having sexual contact with them.
The lawsuit is being filed in California where it is a misdemeanor to withhold that information from sexual partners.
Sharpton had a news conference where she said Usher picked her out of a crowd during a concert and later had sex with her, TMZ said.
Bloom said one of the three plaintiffs has tested positive for herpes. Sharpton said she tested negative for the disease but still feels violated, TMZ said.
Usher’s representatives have not responded to the claims.”

What just happened to Usher and his accuser can happen to anybody. If this was true, this should leave a lesson that everybody need to pay attention to.
