One of the people accusing Usher of exposing them to herpes, Quantasia Sharpton, now claims that she has a sex tape with the R&B superstar.
Sharpton revealed the news during an interview with YouTuber Miss Jacob Kohinoor. “I actually have video,” she claimed. “I’m not sure if I’m obligated to say that, but yeah.”
According to Sharpton, Usher was aware that he was being recorded during the sexual acts. “Deadass serious,” she added. “This is why I kept saying, ‘People lie. Videos don’t.’ That’s why nobody can say nothing to me about this situation.”
Lisa Bloom, the lawyer who is representing Sharpton and two other people in a lawsuit against Usher, is reportedly attempting to subpoena hotel surveillance video to show Usher going into Sharpton’s hotel room in 2014.
Sharpton is the first Usher accuser to come forward with her name. Last month, she claimed that they had sexual contact after one of his concerts. “We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact,” she said. “He never warned me about any STDs, it was just after my 19th birthday.” A former employee of a Days Inn in Atlantic City claims that she saw Usher and Sharpton at the hotel after midnight.
Two other unnamed people — one man, one woman — claim they also had sexual interactions with Usher without being told that he was allegedly carrying the herpes virus. All three are represented by Bloom, who claims she may file additional lawsuits against Usher with new accusers.
All three of these people came forward after it was recently revealed that Usher paid $1.1 million to settle a 2012 lawsuit, in which an ex sued the singer for not revealing that he was carrying the STD. A separate woman is also suing Usher for $20 million for the same reason.
UPDATE: Shortly following the interview’s circulation, Quantasia Sharpton’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, claims that it was a “misunderstanding” and that her client does not have a sex tape with Usher, according to TMZ. Bloom is still hoping that Sharpton and Usher were captured on hotel surveillance cameras.
