(Indio, CA-AP) — There’s been a rise in herpes since this year’s Coachella music festival. According to the website HerpAlert, which keeps track of the STD, there’s been a huge spike in herpes treatment in the communities surrounding Coachella.
Over a thousand cases were reported in Indio, Palm Desert and Coachella Valley during the festival. HerpAlert says it usually handles about 12 cases a day.
(SL) – it’s being reported that an Atlanta woman who says Usher did not tell her that he has herpes prior to an unprotected sexual encounter three months ago claims she’s tested positive for the disease.
The woman has also raised her demands in a lawsuit from $10 million to $20 million against the 38-year-old singer.
The decision was made after the accuser received medical results from an STD test on Saturday.
The singer’s accuser, who filed under the name Jane Doe, is suing the entertainer in connection with her doctor bills, punitive damages and emotional distress.
(SL) – The 38 year old singer is named in a new $10 million lawsuit from a woman who claims he didn’t tell her he has herpes prior to their two hookups.
In the new suit, the woman claims she performed oral sex on Raymond and had protected sex with him on April 16 at her Atlanta residence.
The pair hooked up again in a hotel in New Orleans on April 28th of this year, where they didn’t use protection. The suit charges negligence, battery and emotional distress, but did not confirm whether or not she’s tested positive for it.
One out of every six people between the ages of 14 to 49 carry the herpes virus. The virus can be transmitted even when an individual does not have any visible signs. The woman learned about User’s status through recent reports about a 2012 court case in which he was sued for giving a woman herpes.
Usher has been married to Grace Miguel (pic) for almost 2 years.
