Apart from claiming he lied to them about his health status, and about a $1.1 million lawsuit he previously settled over the same issue, they also said that the virus does not count as a "bodily injury" and is therefore not covered in their agreement. Bloom added, "We hope the reports are not true". According to Bloom, at least one of them tested positive for herpes.
One of three people accusing the eight-time Grammy award-winner of exposing them to herpes spoke out during a press conference in NY on Monday. The unidentified male claims he had oral sex with the R&B crooner, while one of the two women alleges she had vaginal sex with him.
Bloom added that various reports online claim Usher is a carrier of the herpes virus, noting that no members of the performer's team have denied their accuracy.
'I feel like my rights were violated, ' Sharpton said.
"I am speaking out today on behalf of myself and others, some of whom are positive and are embarrassed to speak out publicly".

Lisa Bloom, the attorney for Quantasia Sharpton, and two other plaintiffs who have only been identified as John and Jane Doe, filed the suit on Monday at Los Angeles Superior Court. It is unclear whether the infected person is the man or the woman.
Under Californian law, it is illegal to knowingly pass on a sexually transmitted disease or infection.
Quantasia Sharpton is among two women and a man who have started legal proceedings against the singer over allegations he didn't reveal he had the STD before bedding them. "When I first heard reports that he had herpes, I couldn't believe it".
"I would never have consented if I would have known". I'm supposed to believe that from 2010 to now, Usher only slept with three women or that he told every other woman about having herpes except these three? She attended the concert for her 19th birthday and said that she has been a big fan of his. "After the show, I got a text saying, 'I'm coming outside to meet you". "I was selected to go backstage before the show", she said. I got a call from Usher on a blocked number, asking me what hotel I was staying in and the room number. He arrived a half hour later. "We spoke for awhile then we engaged in sexual contact", Sharpton said.
"It was my birthday so I was wearing a birthday crown", she said. Her friends brought up August Alsina, Kirko Bangz, fake children, and even a fake cancer diagnosis. She also explained that they had done a test which was negative but said that she felt "raped".
