Here Is Usher's Reported Reaction About Secret Herpes Settlement Making Headlines

It was revealed this week that Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a woman who claimed the singer infected her with herpes. The court documents date the lawsuit to late 2012, but that doesn't mean Usher isn't horribly embarrassed by the news leaking out.

The documents show that the singer, whose full name is Usher Raymond IV, was first diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010. The woman that filed the lawsuit claims that she didn't claims the singer didn't tell her about having herpes until she was diagnosed.

The woman, who some media outlets claim is Maya Fox Davis, was allegedly a bridesmaid at Usher's wedding and a friend to his ex-wife Tameka Foster.

She had unprotected sex with Usher and was later diagnosed with herpes, suffering with sores and fevers and chills.

Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012, reportedly totaling #2,754.40, according to court documents. Around that time, the singer had his doctor call the woman to tell her that Usher did indeed carry the herpes virus.

The legal documents noted that Usher was “exposed to herpes” in 2009 or 2010, around the time he finalized his divorce to Tameka Foster. She reportedly divorced the singer for cheating on her.  He went on to marry Grace Miguel in 2015. 

The story of the 38-year-old singer's herpes settlement has made headlines recently, appearing to be backed up by official-looking documents. 

An insider said of Usher, "He feels embarrassed and horrible about the herpes story involving him. He doesn’t want to talk about it, hopes people forget about it, and can’t wait for the whole thing to go away.”

Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Foster, certainly wants no part of all the drama.
She took to Instagram to write, "Do not come on my page discussing rumors or people that have NOTHING to do with me. I have been divorced eight years. Some issues are not my business, ex-husbands, ex-friends, snakes, [expletive], characters, etc. Not my circus, not my clowns. I’m good and my health (everywhere) is great.”
