One of the women, Quantasia Sharpton, said in a news conference with her lawyer, Lisa Bloom, she did not contract herpes when she allegedly had sex with him after celebrating her 19th birthday at an Usher concert … but she claims he exposed her to the STD.
Usher, through his lawyers Laura Wasser and Zia Modabber, also raises an interesting argument … the 3 plaintiffs can’t win because they have “unclean hands.” That means he’s alleging they did something wrong, although he’s not specific.
And there’s this … Usher claims the 2 women and the man don’t have a legal claim because anything Usher might have done was unintentional. The intimation … if he had herpes, he didn’t know it at the time.
And finally he says if he did have sex with them they “assumed the risk” … again, the intimation is that they assume the risk of contracting an STD.
