The saga continues! A woman is suing R&B superstar Usher for $10 million, claiming he exposed her to the sexually-transmitted disease herpes.

The report stated that Usher admitted to infecting her with the virus as court documents showed, adding that he promised to "take care of things". The woman, referred to as Jane Doe in court docs obtained by the celeb gossip site, claims that, after kissing and having oral sex, she and Usher, 38, hooked up in her Atlanta home on April 16, 2017-but they used a condom. The woman says she wouldn't have had sex with Usher if he'd disclosed that he has an STD.

Jane Doe, as it's written in the court doc's, is filing the suit for negligence, battery, and causing emotional distress, as Usher exposed her to the virus. Whether she gets that now is another story, but she's definitely trying to get some bread.

Usher Raymond may have to just go ahead and let it burn - and by "it", we mean his money.

Earlier this week, it was reported that the singer paid over $1 million to settle a 2012 lawsuit after he allegedly infected his celebrity stylist flame with Herpes. But this time, Usher chose to use condoms.

The problems with the service are said to revolve around challenges when it comes to customers actually returning the umbrellas. But he may have overestimated people's honesty - or even their ability to simply do not forget to give them back.


Usher has yet to comment on the herpes scandal.

Usher - who has been married to Grace Miguel for two years since September 2015 - had two sexual encounters with his accuser according to the new lawsuit.

As the New York Daily News notes, California law states that it is illegal to knowingly transmit an STD to your sexual partner.

Usher paid for the stylist's medical bills, a reported $2,754.40 in 2012 and settled the suit on December 28, 2012.
