Damn, Usher! Say it ain’t so, man! On the real, the streets are talking and the story ain’t cool, son. Now, I try to take all of these damaging rumors with a grain of salt, but it’s not looking good for Ursh out here, fam. All in all, if these court documents are true, then Usher is a foul dude, bruh. Basically, a woman claimed that he knowingly gave her herpes without informing her first. To make matters worse, he reportedly gave this lady $1 million to settle a lawsuit. Shit, man!
Now, before I continue, let me acknowledge some truths, son. Keeping it a buck, Sexually Transmitted Diseases aren’t new, man. I mean, A LOT of people are running around here burning, fam. With that being said, responsible adults need to be upfront about their status, bruh. Like, folks shouldn’t be out here bare bumping without first telling their partners the truth. That’s both dishonest AND incredibly dangerous, people! Frankly, this post is less about Usher and more about the fact that people need to be safe out here.
In any case, Usher’s tale is as follows: he was supposedly diagnosed with herpes in either 2009 or 2010. Despite that, he apparently kept raw dogging this woman. Even after a “greenish discharge” came out of his member, the woman claimed that Usher assured her that he was clean. From there, she developed vaginal sores, fevers and chills. After getting tested, her doctor informed her of her illness. Finally, after having his doctor confirm his status, Usher apparently paid for this woman’s medical bills.
Fam, that’s just a wild ass story, son. Real talk, I don’t even want to believe it. Not because I don’t think it’s possible, but because it’s so fucking reckless, man! Now, I’m a big Usher fan, but it’s NEVER cool to remain mum about an STD, bruh. Man, what part of the game is that? I mean, there’s a reason why states have made it a crime, fam.
Being real, if all of this hoopla is true, then he just permanently altered this woman’s life. Yeah, they both could’ve done more to protect themselves, but that doesn’t change the fact that he can’t just be silent about something this serious. Outside of the health concerns, her personal life could be irreparably damaged. When it comes to situations like this, if she wants to have a long term relationship, she’s going to have to divulge all of this information to a potential suitor. All I know is, that can’t be an easy pill for any future lover to swallow.
In the end, I’m turning this post into a public service announcement. Everyone reading this needs to go get tested. After that, everyone needs to keep it real with the person they’re sleeping with. Ain’t nobody got time for these type of surprises, son. Don’t confess to burning after the house has already burned down, man. Ultimately, if Usher really conducted himself in this manner, then he’s a fucked up individual. Plain and simple, fam. LC out.
