After Quantasia Sharpton went public in her accusations that Usher exposed her to herpes, the singer finally addressed the claims… to his inner circle.

During a press conference in NYC, accompanied by her lawyer, Quantasia claims Usher picked her out of the audience at a concert, got her number, and they had sex in her hotel room. She also claims he didn’t disclose to her that he had genital herpes.

Well, sources tell TMZ that the singer has told them that while he doesn’t remember pulling her onstage, he absolutely denies that he ever hooked up with her.

As for bringing her onstage, those same sources say Usher “looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels.” Furthermore, he believes its “an esteem booster” to choose various people in the audience and single them out.

Quantasia is suing Usher, alongside two others, claiming he exposed them to herpes without forewarning them.

Another woman has filed a $40 million lawsuit against Usher, after her herpes text came back positive.
