This story from Radar Online says the “U Got It Bad” singer paid a woman $1.1 million dollars after she found out he infected her with herpes.
Apparently the 38-year-old’s ex-wife Tameka Foster was also “exposed” to the disease.
The website obtained court papers about the settlement.
According to The Grio the two settled back in 2012 and this is just now being uncovered.
The woman knew something wasn’t right after she developed lesions and blisters in her vagina along with a fever, chills and a headache among other things.
However, that’s not the only thing that alerted her to a problem because just a few weeks before she developed these symptoms she said Usher expressed concern about having an STD after he noticed a discharge from his penis.
She says the two resumed a sexual relationship after she believed everything was cleared up.
The “Let It Burn” singer is married to Grace Miguel now and has been since 2015.
