Usher is being sued by a woman who claims that he knowingly exposed her to an STD. The $10 million lawsuit, reported by TMZ , accuses the R&B singer of “emotional distress, negligence, and battery.”
The woman, whose name is listed as “Jane Doe” in the legal docs, asserts that she and Usher had two sexual encounters in April, the first of which occurred at her Atlanta home.
During their initial alleged encounter, the woman performed oral sex on the 38-year-singer, and engaged in sexual intercourse.
The suit purportedly states that Usher wore a condom the first time, but had unprotected sex with the woman during a second rendezvous — nearly two weeks later, at a New Orleans hotel.
On Wednesday (July 19), Radar Online published legal documents, that appear to reveal that the eight time Grammy winner was diagnosed with Herpes Simplex 2 (genital herpes) in 2009 or 2010.
Usher has yet to publicly address the reports.
R. Kelly’s alleged sex “cult,” has become one of the talked about stories on the entertainment scene in the last few days.
It’s been reported that several young women were held against their will and the details of the R&B crooner’s trysts have become more and more bizarre by the minute.
Most recently, a woman formerly involved with the “Bump N’ Grind” singer spoke to Jezebel about life within his inner circle. The woman, referred to as “Kim,” chose to remain unidentified but didn’t spare any shocking details regarding R. Kelly’s physical, sexual and psychological abuse. While she confirmed that each of the women living under Kelly’s supervision are “all above the age of consent,” she described their behavior as “witnessing Stockholm Syndrome.”
According to the BuzzFeed report, penned by Chicago reporter Jim DeRogatis, the parents of the young women involved with Kelly believe that they are being held against their will and prohibiting them from talking to their families. Former girlfriends of the “12 Play” singer told DeRogatis that they were required to wear tracksuits in an attempt to hide their figures, agree to sexual encounters which were often times recorded and have their phones replaced with ones that they can only use with his permission.
While one of Kelly’s girlfriends has vehemently denied the eyebrow-raising details, saying she has chosen not to speak to her family and even insisting that she is “happy.” However, Kim tells a very different story.
“All these girls just dote on him,” she told Jezebel. “It’s so fucked up. They’re completely manipulated and brainwashed.”
Kim became involved with Kelly roughly one year ago after being invited onstage during one of his concerts and then to an after-party. While she never had her phone taken away or was asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement, Kim claims she realized that Kelly was “very controlling.”
“When we’re out we’re not allowed to look at anyone,” she said. “We have to keep our heads down. If we’re back in his studio sitting on the couches and he has friends across the room at the bar, we can’t look at each other or communicate with each other.” The girls are also instructed to “tell on each other,” she said. “If we’re in an Uber and we chat up the driver, we’re supposed to tell him this girl did this or that. He’s very controlling and manipulative. He likes to be in control.”
If that wasn’t bizarre enough, Kim also revealed that the women aren’t allowed to compliment each on their outfits and are strictly kept from knowing too much about each other. “We’re not allowed to talk about anything,” she said. “We can compliment shoes or nail polish or make small talk about the weather but we can’t talk about any personal details.”
R. Kelly’s sexual conquests are even more questionable. While Kim admitted to never witnessing Kelly force himself sexually on any of the girls, she confirms that his control over the women is absolute.
“He never makes threats,” she said. “But the girls are so eager to do whatever he wants. He’ll wake us out of a dead sleep and say to this girl, ‘Suck my d**k,’ or to these two girls, ‘Kiss on each other,’ and immediately, without thought, they jump right to it. It’s just bizarre. It’s unlike anything I’ve seen before honestly.”
While the R&B world and fans alike attempt to wrap their heads around this scandal, you can take a look at the full interview here.
According to a report by TMZ, Law enforcement found out that the singer hung himself at a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. His body was discovered Thursday just before 9 AM.
Chester was married with 6 children from 2 wives.
The singer struggled with drugs and alcohol for years. He had said in the past he had considered committing suicide because he had been abused as a child by an older male.
Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell’s 53rd birthday. Chester wrote an open letter to Chris on the day of Chris’ suicide.
The band has had a string of hits over the years, including “Faint,” “In the End” and “Crawling.” Linkin Park crossed music genres, collaborating with Jay-Z.
The band’s album, “Meteroa,” was one of the biggest alternative albums in music history.
Bennington was 41.
While the damming allegations spawned several inappropriate puns derived from the singer’s own musical catalog, (let it burn being one of them) many wondered who’s the unidentified stylist, and surmised it must be Usher’s ex-wife Tameka Foster. Foster and Usher divorced in 2009 about the time it’s believed Usher became infected.
Growing tired of people’s questions and comments, Foster took to Instagram to tell everyone she’s happy, healthy and her ex-husband’s affairs are none of her business.

“Do not come on my page discussing rumors or people that have NOTHING to do with me. I have been divorced eight years, the 46-year-old stylist said. “Some issues are not my business, ex-husbands, ex-friends, snakes, hoes, characters. Not my circus, not my clowns. I’m good and my health everywhere is great.”
California law clearly states it’s illegal to knowingly transmit an STD without notifying your partner. Per the court documents, Usher allegedly told the stylist he tested negative despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis.
Usher, who released his latest album Hard II Love last year, has yet to make any statements.
Joycelyn Savage released a video pleading with her father Tim Savage to stop going to the media and lying. Joycelyn claims that R. Kelly basically saved her life and loves where she is at.
One particular person from her family and friends said that Joycelyn was kicked out the house and basically making a living as a stripper since she was 16. She was a very popular stripper who made good money and R. Kelly was a regular of hers. Joycelyn wanted out the stripper life and took Kelly’s offer for his sex cult.

The Federal Government of Nigeria has made a move to ban artistes from shooting their videos outside the shores of Nigeria. This includes music and movies.
Ths report which started going around as a rumour has been confirmed as the truth as the country’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed allegedly announced during his visit to the Copyright Society of Nigeria (COSON) on Saturday the 15th of July stating that;
This government has agreed that henceforth, whatever we consume in Nigeria in terms of music and films, must be made in Nigeria.”
“We cannot continue to go to South Africa or any other country to produce our films and then send them back to be consumed in Nigeria.”
“The Broadcasting Code and the Advertising Code are very clear on this. For you to classify a product as a Nigerian product, it must have a certain percentage of Nigerian content.
This development is one that might definitely pose a challenge to Nigerian entertainment industry, especially with our music as our Nigerian artistes are more involved in international collaborations. These international collaborations are not just good for the artistes, but it has also proved to be good for the country too as it is a way to export our Nigerianness, including our culture to the world and also introduce the culture of other countries to us as we see with artistes such as Runtown do with their songs.
What do you think about the plans of the government for the Entertainment Industry in Nigeria
R. Kelly’s vehemently denying allegations that he’s the mastermind behind an abusive “cult” that subjects women to sex slavery.
A rep for the singer tells TMZ, “Mr. Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed by the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr. Kelly unequivocally denies such accusations and will work diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name.”
A BuzzFeed report paints R. Kelly as a monster who allegedly housed 6 women in Chicago and Atlanta and controlled their everyday lives — from when they can shower, eat and use the restroom to how they can dress and engage in sexual encounters.
TMZ confirmed cops in Georgia and Illinois conducted welfare checks for one of the women … at her parents’ request. According to docs, the woman told deputies she was fine and “did not want to be bothered with her parents because her father was threatening people.”
