Eyewitness Places Usher At Herpes Accuser Quantasia Sharpton"s Hotel On The Day Of The Alleged Sexual Encounter

Placed at the scene of the crime!! While Usher has reportedly denied hooking up with herpes accuser Quantasia Sharpton, it seems an employee at the Days Inn in Atlantic City can corroborate the complainant's story. Ooh, go on.

While Usher has reportedly denied hooking up with herpes accuser Quantasia Sharpton, it seems an employee at the Days Inn in Atlantic City can corroborate the complainant's story. Ooh, go on. Related: Usher's Wife Is Reportedly Unbothered By All Of This! As you may've seen, Miz Sharpton and her attorney, Lisa Bloom, held a press conference after they filed a lawsuit against the hitmaker for failing to disclose his alleged STD during a sexual encounter. (Side note: Bloom has also filed on behalf of TWO other victims who wish to remain anonymous.) During her statement, Quantasia claimed that the Yeah! singer picked her out of a crowd at a concert, got her phone number, and later showed up at her hotel for sexual relations. Not once did Usher disclose his health status. The concert in question took place in Atlantic City on November 15 back in 2014. There is photo proof of Sharpton at the concert as she snapped a pic with Usher's opening act, August Alsina. Not to mention, a former employee at the hotel where Quantasia stayed claims to have seen Usher as he entered the Days Inn lobby just after midnight on November 16. Uh oh!!! The unnamed female staffer told TMZ that Sharpton came down to the lobby and greeted the OMG artist before bringing him up to her room. The woman says she asked the 38-year-old for a picture, but the A-lister declined and said he'd take one with her later. Although the lady waited an hour, Usher never came back downstairs. Via sources connected to the situation, Sharpton has confirmed that the Days Inn is where her sexual encounter with Usher took place. Welp, it sounds like Usher has some 'splainin' to do!

The "Jane Doe" In Usher"s $20 Million Genital Herpes Case Identifies Herself!

Yup, the Jane Doe who is suing the hitmaker for allegedly giving her genital herpes has FINALLY identified herself. Well, well! Related: Usher's Accuser Lied About Having A Sex Tape! According to reports, Laura Helm has claimed in recent legal documents that she had two sexual encounters with the Yeah! singer. Apparently, Usher acted VVV oddly during their first hookup. Specifically, Miz Helm alleges that she never saw the music icon finish as he ran to the bathroom towards the end of their liaison. Ugh. In regards to their second encounter, Laura notes that the 38-year-old never wore a condom and within a few days she noticed a bump appear on the inside of her mouth. Then, another few days later, the dark haired beauty discovered a similar bump on her vagina. Oh no! Helm also brought up the reported $1.1 million Usher paid to a different lover, but offered up no proof that the monetary exchange occurred. Now, if you were wondering what Usher's like in the bedroom, Laura says The Voice vet puts on jazz music while performing oral sex. Well, that's an image we can't get out of our heads. Smh. Per Laura's account, the No Limit artist wooed her by telling her all about his humanitarian efforts in Africa. Nonetheless, the pair were only ever brief sex friends. We're sure Usher's people will have a response to Laura's claims sometime soon. Stay tuned!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Innocent until proven guilty! We're sure that's what Usher has been telling himself ever since this herpes scandal hit the press. As you've likely heard, the Yeah! singer has been named in a number of lawsuits as he allegedly exposed several sexual partners to genital herpes without disclosing his supposed sexual condition.

As you've likely heard, the Yeah! singer has been named in a number of lawsuits as he allegedly exposed several sexual partners to genital herpes without disclosing his supposed sexual condition. Related: Usher's Finances Could Take A Hit! One of the alleged victims, named Quantasia Sharpton, has since come forward and given a press conference about her past liaison with the hitmaker. At a press conference, organized by her lawyer Lisa Bloom, Quantasia claimed The Voice judge picked her out of the crowd at a concert, got her phone number, and later had sex with her at a hotel. Per the statement, the 38-year-old never warned the complainant about his (reported) herpes. However, it seems Miz Sharpton's side of the story might not be entirely true as Usher has been reportedly telling people in his close circle that he in no way slept with Quantasia. The OMG artist defends that he may've pulled Sharpton up on stage at the concert, but he doesn't remember any specifics about meeting her. Apparently, the one thing Usher knows for sure is he did NOT have a romantic relationship with Quantasia as she's "not his type." When asked why the A-lister may've singled out Sharpton at a concert, a source told TMZ: "[Usher] looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels." The insider added that the industry vet feels it is "an esteem booster" to bring fans of all kinds up onstage. Wow, that sounds so condescending. Nonetheless, Usher has yet to publicly address the legal matter, so who knows what the real story is. Still, we doubt Bloom would go after such a high-profile celeb without some damning evidence in her pocket. Just keep that in mind... [Image via Facebook/Instagram.].....»»

Woman Sues Usher For Not Disclosing Alleged Herpes Diagnosis Before Sexual Encounter — See What She Had To Say HERE!

Lisa Bloom has moved on to her next celebrity scandal. As we previously reported, the famed attorney is representing three people who claim Usher exposed them to herpes without warning them about his diagnosis first.

As we previously reported, the famed attorney is representing three people who claim Usher exposed them to herpes without warning them about his diagnosis first. While we knew Miz Bloom was filing a lawsuit against the Yeah! singer today (August 7), the legal expert came out swinging as she held a press conference with one of the complainants, named Quantasia Sharpton. Related: Usher's Wife Is Reportedly Unbothered By All This According to Sharpton, the hitmaker saw her in the crowd at one of his concerts, sent his security team to get her phone number, and then later met up at her hotel to have sex. Throughout this entire process, not once did Usher reveal that he (allegedly) has herpes. Now, Quantasia never actually contracted the STI from her liaison with the chart topper, but she's suing because she feels violated. As Bloom explained it, Usher has yet to weigh in on the media reports surrounding his diagnosis. This silence is irresponsible as it leaves his past partners vulnerable to passing the STI to others. Lisa also revealed that one of her three clients has tested positive for the herpes virus. Although, we should probably mention, Usher's health status has not been confirmed by his team. Oh, and Bloom may be filing additional lawsuits as several others have since come forward as potential victims. Per Lisa, her end goal for this case is to force Usher to reveal his diagnosis to any sexual partners he may have in the future. Again, that's if Usher actually has herpes. But hey, where there's smoke, there's fire... Be sure to watch the entire press conference for yourself (below)! [Image via Facebook/Eugene Powers/WENN.].....»»

Related: Usher's Wife Is Reportedly Unbothered By All This Lisa Bloom, who has quickly made a name for herself taking on the high profile revenge porn cases of Blac Chyna and Mischa Barton, plans to file suit on Monday on behalf of three victims -- two women and a man -- who claim they had sexual contact with Usher, and that he failed to disclose his diagnosis. Two of the victims are staying anonymous -- they'll be referred to as John Doe and Jane Doe in the court case -- but the third is going public. She is expected to speak out in a press conference beside Bloom on Monday. It has to be a tough thing to speak about in public. Speaking of which, we doubt we'll hear from Usher on the matter.

Following up the release of her album, Rainbow, Kesha bared all for Rolling Stone!

Featured in their October issue, the songstress spoke up about everything from her friendship with Taylor Swift to suffering from an eating disorder. The one name she doesn't mention?? Dr. Luke. Video: Kesha & Macklemore Are Timeless Lovers In Good Old Days Just hinting at their legal troubles, Kesha mentioned: "I've been through a lot, and a lot we can't talk about." However, Jesse Hughes of Eagles of Death Metal, who worked with the 30-year-old on the album, had strong words about the controversial producer for Rolling Stone: "When she was going through her shit, we were like her big brothers. I was like, 'Who do I fuck up? You want me to go to his place right now? You want me to beat that fucking contract out of him right now? I will.' That's how strongly I felt about it. That's not even a lie, man." The singer has fiercely loyal friends, including T.Swift! As you may remember, the pop singer donated $250K to help cover her expenses amid her battle against Dr. Luke. Speaking of the LWYMMD singer, Kesha explained she "is a fucking sweetheart. Very, very sweet, very, very genuine, extremely generous": "[Taylor] picks up the phone every time I call her. My mom doesn't even always pick up the phone!" And she kept mum about any of Tay's recent controversies: "I'm not really up on my pop culture. Should I know something about it?" The Woman artist also described her pride over her new album: "I feel like myself for the first time ever. And I made a record I'm extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts – I excavated the most gnarly lyrics that were so difficult for me. And people still like it! It's really beautiful, and it's very healing. I feel like I'm being seen for what I actually am, and people are OK with it." But it brings up a sensitive subject of her past issues with an eating disorder: "'Perfect' is a tricky word. Because it's like, 'What the fuck is perfect? And who gets to decide?' Like, they can shove it up their ass." The star divulged: "I really just thought I wasn't supposed to eat food. And then if I ever did, I felt very ashamed, and I would make myself throw up because I'd think, 'Oh, my God, I can't believe I actually did that horrible thing. I'm so ashamed of myself because I don't deserve to eat food. I was slowly, slowly starving myself. And the worse I got and the sicker I got, the better a lot of people around me were saying that I looked. They would just be like, 'Oh, my gosh, keep doing whatever you're doing! You look so beautiful, so stunning.'" And it was then at a dinner party, when her anxiety over it reached its height: "I was like, 'Oh, my God, what if they walk outside and see this food in a bush? Or they see it in the garbage can?' And I just had all this mounting anxiety. And then finally I was like, 'Fuck. This. Shit. Fuck this shit. I'm hungry!' And I am so anxious that I feel like I'm going to explode from all the secrets. All the secret times I'm pretending to eat or other times I'm purging, and I'm trying to not let anybody know. And I'm just fucking sick of this shit. And I remember just shaking because I was so fed up, so anxious, and I was just mad that I had let myself get to that point... I didn't know how to even eat. At that point, I'd forgotten how to do it." Kesha admitted herself into rehab to meet with a nutritionist: "I just remember crying into a carbohydrate being like, 'I can't eat it. It's going to make me fat, and if I'm fat, I can't be a singer because pop stars can't eat food – they can't be fat.' ...I did just take my life into my own hands and choose life over a slow, painful, shameful self-imposed death. And I need to stop just being so fucking mean to myself." Now, the performer sounds much kinder to herself and to her body. And despite everything going on with the lawsuits, she's been so brave speaking up about what's important. Read on for more of her interview, and be sure to take a look at her cover (below): On needing to work on music in the facility: "You don't want to have anything that could be at all used for suicide. And I was like, 'I respect all of that, but please let me have a keyboard or my brain's going to explode. My head has all these song ideas in it, and I just really need to play an instrument.'" On sitting "next to Rihanna and Katy Perry and all that" at a show, remembering being bullied in the cafeteria as a kid: "I just felt like so the outcast, the same person sitting at the lunch table." On Ke$ha: "I loved what I was doing when I was doing it. It was so much fucking fun! I wouldn't change all the Worst Dressed lists, I wouldn't change the mohawk, I wouldn't change all that shit. I'm proud of myself for being that ballsy young girl that was ready to take life by the balls." On not going to rehab for alcohol or drug-related issues: "I used to drink more, and now I don't. And that's fine. Truth is, I don't really like alcohol that much." On developing feelings for her boyfriend Brad Ashenfelter: "Then he kissed me, and it was the nicest kiss I ever had. I was like, 'Wow, you're such a pure soul. Holy shit.' And I knew from that moment, 'I gotta hold on to you.'" Kesha appears on our latest cover. You can read the story in full at RollingStone.com. In the feature, she discusses her latest album ‘Rainbow,’ her legal troubles, Taylor Swift and more. "I feel like myself," she tells us, "for the first time ever. And I made a record I’m extremely proud of, from the bottom of my guts."

Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers

Music and pop culture continually have a tremendous impact on our world. Iconic has re-entered our everyday language. And for a good reason (Have you HEARD Kiwi?)! Something that’s iconic is highly original; it’s innovative or influential. These ten album covers are iconic, the times and artists they represent helped shape music into what it has become, and these particular covers are immediately recognizable even by the most casual listeners. Nirvana: Nevermind The baby on the cover of this album is named Spencer Elden, and because of the explosive success of this album, he will always be the most famous baby in the rock industry! Kurt Cobain had this concept come to him while watching a documentary about water births with Dave Grohl. He wanted to paint a picture of a baby already corrupted by money and greed – and he definitely succeeded in a controversial way. Pink Floyd: Dark Side of The Moon This slightly trippy prism design adorns Pink Floyd’s eighth album. It is among the most recognizable images in rock music. Storm Thorgerson was the band’s graphic designer for the cover, and he told Rolling Stone that he used the triangle as a symbol of thought and ambition, which he felt related to the lyrics in a big way. It is also reminiscent of a light show. George Hardie put the image together, and he says it represents three things, “the band’s stage lighting, the album lyrics, and [keyboardist, Richard] Wright’s request for a ‘simple and bold’ design.” The Beatles: Abbey Road The Beatles are iconic in their own right, but the photo that was used for the cover of their eleventh studio release, Abbey Road, is almost the definition of iconic. It is also the last album where all four of the men participated in the recording sessions. The photo was taken right outside of the EMI Studios building where they recorded the songs. The album saw immediate commercial success and is regarded as the band’s best album, and one of the best albums of all time. The album’s cover has become one of the most famous images in music, and hundreds of people flock to that street to recreate it every year. The Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers Andy Warhol had been approached before about doing album art for The Rolling Stones, but they didn’t use his design for the original album they approached him for. Later, his idea of using a working zipper on an album cover sprung to life on the cover of Sticky Fingers. Warhol and a graphic artist named Craig Braun worked together on this suggestive art, and the art actually won a Grammy. The zipper opened to reveal some white underwear. Oddly, the cover was banned in Spain and changed to a pretty disturbing picture of a can of fingers in some blood. David Bowie: Aladdin Sane The sixth album in David Bowie’s discography came right after his 1972 concept album, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust. Even though this wasn’t the first time his [...] The post Top 10 Most Iconic Art Album Covers appeared first on PopCrunch......»»

According to TMZ, the singer's $20 million herpes lawsuit -- where Laura Helm claims the 39-year-old failed to tell her about his alleged STD before allegedly engaging in unprotected sex -- has been dismissed. Related: Usher's Wife Is Unbothered By The Drama! Back in October, TMZ obtained a July 19 recording where the accuser said she only had protected intercourse with the musician. She filed the lawsuit two days later. The woman -- formerly known as "Jane Doe" -- hired a new attorney who filed documents to dismiss the case "with intent to refile." So Usher isn't out of the woods just yet. His attorney Steve Sadow told People: "It's our sincere hope that this dismissal will bring an end to the opportunistic litigation against Usher in Georgia."
