Usher Raymond is apparently telling friends he never met with a fan at an Atlantic City, New Jersey motel 3 years ago. Quantasia Sharpton, the now discredited accuser, is suing the 38-year-old married father-of-2 for exposing her to the herpes simplex virus -- even though they are both reportedly negative for the disease.
Usher is pictured above having lunch with music producer Jermaine Dupri at Alfred Coffee in West Hollywood during a break from recording his upcoming album, which will address the STD scandal.
According to gossip webloid TMZ, Usher has told friends he may have met Sharpton the night of his Atlantic City concert in November 2014, but he never went to the Days Inn motel to have sex with her.
Sharpton, 21, claimed one of Usher's aides took her phone number after Usher spotted her in the crowd at a concert, and they later arranged to meet at her motel. But she alleges Usher never mentioned he had herpes.
According to editors at TMZ a source close to Usher has claimed that he was too busy falling in love with his wife Grace Miguel Raymond at the time of the alleged incident.
The singer told friends that at the time of the alleged encounter he was spending all of his free time with Grace and he had no time for other women.
The insider adds that on the night of the Atlantic City show, the set ran late and the singer had to push back his meet-and-greets until after midnight, which proves he could not have been with Sharpton, who claimed that they were at the hotel around 12 a.m.
Several other accusers have come forward over the past month, including a singer from New Orleans, who alleges the singer infected her with herpes. The woman, identified in a Georgia filing as "Jane Doe", is suing Usher for $20 million.
