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.

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I am so tired of this story if he doesnt have just release your results or something.

    Tired of her and fantasy island or whatever her name is.

    Beyonce needs to become pregnant again, or those babies need a video of them crawling or walking so the media can stop posting about this nonsense..annoying!

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

  • BeUtFullSoul

    ENOUGH! has been SAID that U S H E R R A Y M O N D does NOT have herpes!

  • Noirluv45

    Raises hands x 2.

  • You Could Never

    So these herpes are Jermaine Dupri's story? Just like I suspected. Just like the Confessions album was about his midget ass confessions. But nobody cares that he impregnanted a stripper while with Janet. Nobody was listening like Karlie Redd when she was singing her doo wop on the corner back in the 1950' he had Ursher sing them. Now he has Ursh singing about his damn crotch blisters.

    I cannot (in my Joseline birthing voice)

  • 2telldatruth

    Well at least if you have Usher slow jams as part of your quiet storm playlist it's a constant reminder to practice safe sex.

  • Oh Tommie

  • Karen Brady

    For some reason I giggle whenever they play an Usher (and of course they play him heavy in ATL on thr radio) and I wag my head back and forth real hard when I hear a Kelly song. Truth.

  • SDot

    OK this is an publicity stunt. NO way he's just that carefree. Usher got insecurities. This isn't real watch. No way he's so super cool.

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Oh, you bad & boujee ?

  • Lisa daniels

  • bashi

    Most men cheat it just prounce more because he cheated on Janet Jackson America's entertainment family. Janet was wifey but these hoes sex like their life depends on it because first impressions last. ATL men in the industry love striped clubs it their right of passage

  • Renee26

    Lol....I'm guessing Sandra made that part up

  • Renee26


  • Renee26

    He looks good staring right in that camera though

  • BacktolurkingIgo

    Those male celebs she's lied on need to sue that girl and Usher needs to sue her and Gloria's twin money chasing daughter.

  • Joi Williams

    It is, Once you do Vegas..... AC is wack but if you reside in NJ its a local place for a quick get away, casinos, clubs and shopping.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    Lol Come on.... he's Usher!

  • Darkandlovely617?

    So you still would??

  • Renee Bee

    Bwahahahahahaha! Me too.

  • Nonya Bizness

    This chic doesn't have the h erp. Where'd the chic go that claimed she tested positive, and witnessed the green drip? Was she lying as well, or was she paid to go away? Miss me with"too busy falling in love with his Aunty Grace". Like how he was married to Tameka but f'king her bridesmaid? That "too busy falling in love with the old lady" comment came from the old lady. SMH.

  • Ms.Vanilla


  • SG

  • Lisa daniels


  • BeUtFullSoul

  • Keisha Hannah

  • nekkkyj

  • rachel

    Plz. The Mac truck chic needs to quit with the ridiculous story. All of this energy should be spent in the gym.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    No thank you

  • Lady Elle

    Did y'all really have to get in the man face while he is trying to eat? ?

  • KayCeiSoul


    Or tomato, or whatever the hell it is, he wants it, and not the camera.


  • KayCeiSoul

    He will forever be fine as hayle to me. Period.

  • YellowSauce


  • YellowSauce

    jermaine dupree's face though ..... he looks frozen lolololol

  • Renee26

    I didn't see him as handsome or sexy until he got older....young Usher never did it for me.

  • bemetoo

    i agree

  • dontgetblocked

    Once again, no official statement from his camp because it's true. He's burning.

  • NicoleZee

    He used to be kind of cute when he was younger, but now, I can't with the unkempt hair and the nose. Ick! But he was NEVER handsome. If you look directly at his face, no, I don't see it at all ever. So many handsome men in the world, he is not one of them. I'll take Brad Pitt, George Clooney or Michael Ealy over Usher any day of the week :).

  • NicoleZee

    Jermaine seems like a cool dude, he's just not great looking. And, who cheats on Janet Jackson???? Sad. I never understood why she went for him in the first place, but I forgot, women will look past an unattractive man as long as he has some money or good dick. I can't. If I have to look at you, you need to be at least cute and not grossing me out. Call me shallow or whatever, but I'm just keeping it all the way real and being honest. If I'm not ugly, ain't never in life been called ugly, why the hell should I or any other woman have to settle for an ugly gross man??? Not today! I love his show on Lifetime though, The Rap Game.

  • Wyteprivilege

    Why tell the pap. when and where you will be, then pretend to be annoyed when they take pics? Hollywood man, Hollywood.

  • mila king

    Why hasn't he addressed the man and the herpes?????

  • Allihave2say

    Dang! I was just about to type this exact comment.

  • kekeb

    I don't understand why people care for one. For two I don't understand why people would lie about herpes SMH. How low down could you be to lie and say someone gave you herpes. I don't understand. I hope he sues them all

  • Jussjess25

    So wait.. does usher have it or not yall? I'm confused

  • Jussjess25

    Wait thats jermine? I thought was just an old baldheaded fat man.. wow smh
