This past Friday singer/ songwriter Usher filed for divorce from his wife, Grace Miguel. It comes two years of marriage and one year after the R&B singer was accused of exposing a man to herpes during a sexual encounter.
The singer is being sued $20 million dollars by three people-two women and one man- who has claimed that he exposed them to herpes during sexual encounters several years earlier.
In the lawsuit, the man, only know as John Doe, claimed that the hooked up at a Los Angeles spa in 2012. On June 2018, the man filed a motion with the court compelling the singer to submit details about his medical history, as well as any information regarding possible settlements in the past.
The request has since been withdrawn.
Whether or not the gay sex herpes scandal is what led to Usher’s divorce is unknown, but AOL News reports:
According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, Usher, 40, and Miguel, 49, separated on December 24, 2017, and the two reached a confidential settlement agreement.
Usher proposed to Miguel in January 2015. They quietly eloped that September before going on a romantic honeymoon in Havana, Cuba. They announced to Us exclusively this March that they had broken up.
Usher has repeatedly denied allegations that he gave anyone herpes. The $20 million lawsuit was eventually dropped after one of the accusers was caught on tape admitting she had lied about having unprotected sex with the singer.
