*OK, now the Usher/herpes thingy is getting specific. Through a source, Ursh says he never hooked up – with the woman who’s suing him – at a Days Inn.
If you waiting for more, here it is. Usher says was too busy falling in love with the woman who is now his wife.
The source told TMZ that the singer 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 Sharpton’s timeline in which she claims she hooked up with the singer around 12.
On the other hand, Sharpton claims Usher picked her out of the audience at a concert, got her number, and went over to her hotel room where they had sex. She claims he didn’t tell her he allegedly had genital herpes.
TMZ’s sources say Usher told them he may have pulled her up onstage … he doesn’t remember, but he absolutely didn’t hook up with her.
As for why he may have picked Sharpton out of the crowd and brought her onstage, the sources say Usher “looks to bring a diverse group of people up onstage, not just supermodels.”
One source says he believes it’s “an esteem booster” to choose various people Usher sees in the audience and single them out.
No matter how he tries to slice it, the Grammy winning singer has got a BIG problem as this woman (Quantasia Sharpton) is just ONE of several people who are suing the singer for transmitting the herpes bug to them during unprotected sex and not informing them that he was infected.
