Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed the pop star infected her with herpes, court papers show.
The law is clear in California: It is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD.
The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.
The legal documents noted that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010, around when he finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster after she accused him of cheating.
The Daily News reached out to the R&B singer, but a request for comment was not immediately returned.
