Usher doled out $1.1 million to woman he infected with herpes: Report

A woman who allegedly contracted herpes from Usher received $1.1 million from the singer in a lawsuit settlement, according to newly-released documents.

Usher himself received a herpes diagnosis in 2009 or 2010, around the same time that he filed from divorce from ex-wife Tameka Foster. Radar Online published the bombshell court documents Wednesday.

The lawsuit claims that Usher "consciously and purposefully" hid his diagnosis from a celebrity stylist before having "unprotected sex" with her. He allegedly had "greenish discharge" from his genitals but no other visible signs. He told the woman he'd tested negative for the virus.

"Believing [his] statements that it had been nothing and cleared up, [she] continued her relationship," the documents read.

But three weeks after their initial hookup, the woman woke up feeling ill with a fever, chills and aches. She had also "developed lesions and blisters in her vagina." A doctor quickly diagnosed her with herpes and confirmed that it was a first-time infection.

California law requires a person who knows he or she is infected with genital herpes to warn partners of the diagnosis before sexual contact occurs.

Usher settled with the woman in December 2012.
