Quantasia Sharpton appeared at a news conference with her lawyer Lisa Bloom earlier this week, where she claimed she invited backstage at an Usher concert and gave her number to one of the singer’s people. From there, she ended up in a hotel room with him and they had sex… but he never told her he had genital herpes.
According to TMZ, the concert took place in Atlantic City, New Jersey on November 15, 2014 — confirmed by a past photo of Sharpton at the concert with opener August Alsina (below).
Apparently, she was celebrating her birthday, weeks after she turned 19.
TMZ has spoken to someone at the Days Inn in Atlantic City, which is located less than a mile from the concert venue, who says they saw Usher come into the lobby shortly after midnight on November 16. The staffer also says they saw Sharpton come down, greet the singer in the lobby and brought him to her room.
The staffer remembers, because she asked Usher to take a photo with her. He said he would before leaving the hotel, but says after an hour, he hadn’t returned.
Usher hasn’t publicly addressed the claims or lawsuits in his herpes scandal.
