You know how when you confront a liar about something they’ve done they won’t deny it directly but will answer in the form of a question? It might be something like “Why would I do that?” or “why would you ask that?” That’s what came to mind when I read Usher’s latest explanation, as per his mouthpiece TMZ, for why he must not have slept with the plaintiff in the herpes lawsuit against him. Usher’s excuse is that he was in love with his soon-to-be fiance, now wife Grace Miguel, at the time Quantasia Sharpton claims she slept with him. What kind of explanation is that? People in early relationships cheat all the time. Usher’s previous excuse via TMZ was that Quantasia was “not his type,” i.e. not hot enough for him. A photo came out of her on the night in question in 2014 and she was much different-looking back then so now that has been forgotten and there’s another excuse. We heart that there’s a potential witness, a Day’s Inn employee who claimed she saw Usher enter the lobby, meet with Quantasia there and presumably go up to Quantasia’s room. All of this allegedly happened on the night Quantasia claims Usher had unprotected sex with her without informing her he had genital herpes. The Day’s Inn worker remembers clearly because she asked Usher for a selfie with her and he said he would take one in an hour but never came back.
TMZ has this story along with a couple of other reasons Usher couldn’t have been there – he was late working that night and he had to travel a lot. Isn’t that what liars do too? They throw a bunch of excuses against the wall and see what sticks.
Usher says there’s no way he went to a Days Inn to hook up with the woman suing him … because he was too busy falling in love with the woman who’s now his wife.
Sources close to the singer tell TMZ … he says there was never a hotel hookup with Quantasia Sharpton, telling friends, in November 2014 he was on the verge of getting engaged to Grace Miguel.
Usher tells them at the time of his alleged encounter, Grace was his manager and they spent ALL their free time together.
His people say when the two weren’t enjoying free time, it was all business, and they were inseparable. The couple got engaged less than 2 months after the alleged Days Inn tryst.
Usher’s people also say on the night in question his show ran late, which pushed the meet-and-greet well after midnight … and that flies in the face with Quantasia’s timeline in which she claims she hooked up with the singer around 12.
We’re told his travel schedule was super tight too … making it even more unlikely he even had time to step out for a secret trip to the Days Inn.
Again, first Usher’s story was that Quantasia wasn’t hot enough for him. Then when a witness and photo emerged he suddenly remembered he was busy, in love and also he worked late that night. This is all BS and it’s a shame that there’s no way to DNA test herpes. According to Lisa Bloom, the lawyer representing Quantasia and two other anonymous clients, at least one of her clients contracted genital herpes. Quantasia and another plaintiff (one of whom is a man, it’s not known if he’s the one with herpes) are lucky they didn’t catch anything. Many of you don’t agree, but I do think they have a case. Yes it’s stupid to have sex without a condom with a new person, but it’s criminal for someone who knows they have an STD to a) not disclose that to a new partner and b) deliberately go without a condom.
We have still not heard an official statement from Usher except for these ridiculous stories he’s weaving to TMZ.
