Usher Divorces Wife While Fighting STI Lawsuit With Unidentified Man
For Usher, the end of 2018 was the final note on a terrible year.
New Zimbabwe reports that the American singer filed papers in Georgia on Friday (December 28) to divorce his now former-wife Grace Miguel.
The two decided to end their three-year marriage with the help of Zia Modabber. Modabber is the same attorney that Usher used for his custody battle with other ex-wife Tameka Foster. The two broke up earlier this year and released the following joint statement to the press.
“After much thought and consideration we have mutually decided to separate as a couple."
“We remain deeply connected, loving friends who will continue supporting each other through the next phases of our lives. The enormous amount of love and respect that we have for each other will only increase as we move forward.”
It’s a wonder if Usher’s current court battle concerning spreading a sexually transmitted disease has anything to do with his recent divorce.
In December of 2017, word got out that Usher was being sued for spreading herpes to several people. A woman by the name of Quantasia Sharpton argued that the musician had put her at risk by allegedly failing to inform her that he had herpes. She says the two had sex at a Days Inn hotel following an Atlantic City, New Jersey concert of his in 2014. She also shares that the event happened on her 19th birthday.
That original complaint was then combined with two complaints from an unidentified man and an unidentified woman. Jane Doe shared in the filed complaint that she and Usher had two sexual encounters. The complaint also alleges that the woman became pregnant with twins who were later stillborn.
As for the John Doe, he says that he and Usher had sex in a spa in Los Angeles’s Koreatown. Again, the complaint alleges that Usher did not come forward with information concerning his STI status.
Then at the start of December, John Doe dropped demands for the singer’s medical records. According to The Blast, Doe claims that Usher refused to turn over documents and tried to invoke attorney-client privilege and physician-patient privilege as a defense for not giving over the information.
John Doe could later bring the motion back later, but for now is continuing the complaint with previously collected evidence.
