One of the clients is 21-year-old Quantisia Sharpton, who said she met Usher at a concert she attended for her 19th birthday.

She claims she was chosen from the crowd to go backstage and meet Usher - real name Usher Raymond - because of the birthday crown she was wearing.

Usher is being sued by two more women, as well as one man, for exposing them to herpes without telling them he had the virus, TMZ reports.

Court documents indicate that Sharpton tested negative for the virus when she gave birth to her baby a year ago, but she's suing because she felt her rights were violated.

"You need to warn your sex partners.so they can make their own decisions", she said. Usher already paid a stylist $1.1 million in 2012 for giving her herpes.

After the documents were made public last month, it was found that a $20 million lawsuit has been filed against Usher by a woman with whom he had sexual contact in April, post which she got diagnosed with the disease. According to Bloom, one of the remaining clients has tested positive for herpes.

Bloom said in her statement that there are other individuals, aside from the three plaintiffs in this lawsuit, who have contacted her with similar concerns. One woman, Quantasia Sharpton, stepped forward with Bloom Monday during a press conference. "I never heard from him again".

Usher's health status regarding genital herpes has not been confirmed as of yet.

Sharpton said she was handpicked by a security guard at the concert, after which she dropped her number for subsequent contact.

Instead, "Raymond acted with malice, fraud, oppression in intentionally and purposefully concealing his Herpes diagnosis from Plaintiffs in a deliberate effort to have sexual relations with Plaintiffs".

Sharpton's attorney Lisa Bloom said: "We hope the reports are not true".

Lawyer Lisa Bloom, who represented Mischa Barton and Black Chyna, is representing two woman and one man in the case. She also explained that they had done a test which was negative but said that she felt "raped". I got a call from Usher on a blocked number, asking me what hotel I was staying in and the room number. "I would not have taken a risk of getting an incurable disease; my health is very important to me".

"I am mad because if it weren't for the reports I would have never known about something that could have affected me for the rest of my life".

Amazingly, Usher is yet to confirm or deny he has the virus and his wife is not bothered by the allegations trailing him.
