Usher reportedly paid a woman $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit after she claimed to have contracted herpes from the singer.
The stylist reportedly said she “feels that her health and body have been ruined” and “has suffered severe emotional distress and has been extremely depressed … knowing there is no cure.”
According to New York Daily News, California law states that it is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit a STD.
Court papers showed that the singer paid $2,754.40 of the victim’s medical bills in 2012.
He eventually settled with the woman on Dec. 28, 2012, settling for a total of $1.1 million.
