EXCLUSIVE: Usher Herpes Accuser Quantasia Sharpton Shut Down in Court
Last year, a woman named Quantasia Sharpton – along one other unidentified woman and man – sued Usher accusing him of exposing them to herpes and failing to tell them prior to having sexual relations.
Usher has denied all allegations and said that if he did transmit any STDs it was unintentional, meaning if he had herpes, he didn’t know he did at the time. The case is still being battled out in court.
Last October, Sharpton filed docs in the case, trying to take a deposition of a another woman – who is referred to as ‘Jane Doe’ – that Usher allegedly had sex with and exposed to Herpes.
The woman filed docs demanding Sharpton not be allowed to depose her. She accused Sharpton of trying to obtain extremely private and embarrassing information about her sexual history with Usher.
‘Jane Doe’ said the private information was stolen and leaked to the press without her consent, which lead to Sharpton demanding the woman be deposed. Jane Doe claimed the information Sharpton was seeking has nothing to do with the current lawsuit against Usher and wanted the judge to order that she did not have to be question by Sharpton in the case.
This month, the judge in the case came back and sided with Jane Doe. He granted Jane Doe’s motion and ordered she would not have to be deposed by Sharpton in the case. This is a small blow to Sharpton in her lawsuit against Usher.
