Quantasia Sharpton, a 21-year-old mother of three, spoke out about the new lawsuit against the singer at a press conference in New York on Monday.

Exactly one week before, Sharpton - who also goes by Angel Valentino on social media - had taken to Facebook to declare: 'I need some money', TMZ reports.

Just hours before the press conference, which was coordinated by celebrity lawyer Lisa Bloom, the alleged victim wrote: 'Enjoying my last couple of hours as a regular girl.'

Sharpton is one of three alleged victims - two women and a man - suing Usher but she is the only one identified by name in the lawsuit.


They all allege that Usher failed to inform them he had herpes, an incurable sexually-transmitted disease, before engaging in the alleged sexual encounters.

The lawsuit makes note of recent news reports that Usher admitted in court documents in 2012 to having the disease and that he settled a $20million herpes lawsuit several years ago with a woman.

They claim Usher has never publicly denied having herpes, or made an effort to contact them to confirm or deny the reports, the lawsuit states.

The lawsuit states the alleged victims have suffered severe emotional distress, birthing complications, stress, depression and anxiety about contracting or being exposed to herpes.

Court filings claim that in the event that Usher doesn't have herpes, his conduct has still caused 'severe emotional distress' since he has allowed them to worry that he has exposed them to the virus.
