Quantasia Sharpton, 21, stood with her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, at the New York Hilton in Midtown and announced that she learned about Usher's reported disease several years after she slept with singer. From there, she says she gavev her phone number to security and met Usher shortly thereafter.

She says she never heard from Raymond again after the encounter.

Usher is being sued by two more women, as well as one man, for exposing them to herpes without telling them he had the virus, TMZ reports.

"I feel that my rights were violated", said Quantasia Sharpton, who does not have the disease.

"If you are positive you need to warn your sex partners", she said.

The company also says Usher never made mention of the fact he settled a prior lawsuit in 2012 for $1.1 million over the same issue.

As far as the lawsuits against Usher, attorney Lisa Bloom is representing three victims who claim to have had unprotected sex with the singer.

Sharpton said she was wearing a birthday crown at an Usher concert a few years ago that got her noticed by some of his people.

That same morning, one of the reported victims - 21-year-old Quantasia Sharpton - spoke of the encounter at a NY press conference.

On Monday, three ex-lovers sued Usher Raymond, stating that he had exposed them to the genital cold sore virus and hadn't told them.

"No one in America, not even a popular celebrity, is above the law", Bloom said.

The suit is seeking compensation for exposure to the virus, and the plaintiffs want to make sure that if Usher is positive for herpes that he be required to notify his sexual partners.

According to Sharpton's tale, it all started when August's DJ allegedly invited her and her friend backstage to get better acquainted with the "No Love" singer. Although I was negative, I was upset by the report because I wouldn't have consented if I had known.

Instead, "Raymond acted with malice, fraud, oppression in intentionally and purposefully concealing his Herpes diagnosis from Plaintiffs in a deliberate effort to have sexual relations with Plaintiffs".

When Sharpton appeared at a press conference on Monday, Aug. 7, some were shocked that Usher had sex with a woman who has described herself as BBW with a ghetto name in social media postings. Later, she returned to her hotel room, and Usher called her to come over. "(To keep it PG), he didn't even allow me to take my dress off before he bent me over the couch", she said.

The 38-year-old singer, who has been married to his manager Grace Miguel since 2015, has yet to publicly comment on the allegations.
