Woman Suing Usher Says STD Confirms Herpes, Now Wants $40M

By Staff  |  07/24/2017


The woman suing Usher, claiming he knowingly exposed her to herpes has offered an update. She says an STD test has confirmed she has the virus... and is now upping the amount she's seeking in her lawsuit.

According to TMZ, the woman -- who filed as Jane Doe -- says she got the results over the weekend and is devastated. She says she went to get tested immediately hearing that Usher had admitted he has herpes simplex 2... and it came back positive.

She originally sued Usher for $10 million in damages. Now, she wants at least $20 million for emotional harm and medical bills, as well as $20 million in punitive damages. That brings her total ask in the lawsuit to $40 million.

Usher has not commented on the lawsuit and reports.
