Innocent until proven guilty!
We’re sure that’s what Usher has been telling himself ever since this herpes scandal hit the press. As you’ve likely heard, the Yeah! singer has been named in a number of lawsuits as he allegedly exposed several sexual partners to genital herpes without disclosing his supposed sexual condition.
One of the alleged victims, named Quantasia Sharpton, has since come forward and given a press conference about her past liaison with the hitmaker.
