Usher reportedly paid $1.1M to woman he allegedly infected with herpes

    Usher paid out $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit with a stylist who claimed the pop star infected her with herpes, court papers show.
The documents were first published Wednesday by Radar Online, but they appear to date to late 2012.
The 38-year-old “Confessions” singer, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with herpes in 2009 or 2010, according to the court papers. But nonetheless, he had unprotected sex with the claimant without confessing that he was carrying the virus, the papers add.
The law is clear in California: It is illegal to knowingly or recklessly transmit an STD. Usher allegedly did just that when he told the victim he had tested negative for the virus, despite a “greenish discharge” from his penis, the court papers say.
“Believing Raymond’s statements that (the discharge) had been nothing and cleared up, (she) continued her relationship,” the legal docs said.
The claimant was later diagnosed with herpes, complete with vaginal sores, fevers and chills, she alleged in papers.
Usher paid some of the victim’s medical bills in 2012 — $2,754.40 in all, the court papers show. That’s when he also had his doctor call the woman to tell her that the singer did indeed carry the herpes virus.

Jay-Z's '4:44' finally makes it to Billboard 200 chart at No. 1


  Jay-Z's new confessional and political release, "4:44," finally entered the Billboard 200 album chart, storming to the top spot and scoring his 14th No. 1 release.

      The rapper and producer sold 262,000 units of "4:44," according to data from Nielsen SoundScan on Monday, to earn the fourth-highest one-week album sales total of 2017.  

    The album, on which Jay-Z admits cheating on his wife Beyonce and addresses the birth last month of their twins, was released on June 30 as a one-week exclusive to members of his streaming platform Tidal and customers of wireless carrier Sprint Corp.

   Despite being certified platinum in its first week, "4:44" was absent from last week's Billboard 200 album chart because Tidal did not report numbers to Nielsen Music.
Ed Sheeran exits Twitter stage after mixed 'Game of Thrones' cameo reviews
 

Ed Sheeran's Twitter page has vanished, prompting speculation that the music star has quit the social media platform after voicing discomfort with abuse directed at him on it.

        The British singer, whose "Divide" album topped the charts in the United States earlier in July, has been vocal about his dislike for Twitter, telling Britain's Sun newspaper that it was "nothing but people saying mean things". 


      Sheeran's apparent disappearance from Twitter on Monday came a day after a cameo appearance in the new series of sex-and-swords TV blockbuster "Game of Thrones", for which he was also the focus of critical comment on the social media platform. Playing a singing soldier in a single scene, Sheeran's unnamed character encounters Arya Stark, one of the central characters, played by Maisie Williams.

R Kelly denies holding several women in 'abusive cult'
 R&B singer R Kelly has denied allegations that he is holding several young women in an "abusive cult".
The singer's lawyer said he would work "diligently and forcibly to pursue his accusers and clear his name".
A BuzzFeed report accuses the singer of brainwashing women, who got closer to him in an effort to boost their musical careers.
One of the women said she was "not being brainwashed". Kelly denies any wrongdoing.
He has faced previous accusations of sexual misconduct, but was never found guilty.
The report, which quoted three unnamed sets of parents, said they had not seen or spoken with their daughters for months, and that the women, all of them over the age of consent, had their routines controlled by the singer.
That included rules about what they could eat and wear, when to bath and sleep and how to engage in sexual encounters recorded by him, they said.
One of the women, Joycelyn Savage, 21, told the TMZ  she was not in a cult.
    In a video posted hours after the allegations emerged, she said: "I'm in a happy place in my life. I'm not being brainwashed or anything like that." She added that the issue had "definitely got out of hand".

Kelly 'alarmed' by claims

Three former members of Kelly's inner circle were also interviewed, saying that six women lived in properties managed by the singer in similar conditions.
If they broke the "rules", they said, the women could be punished physically and verbally by the singer, according to the report.
Some of the parents reported their concerns to the police, but the women said they were not being held against their will.
The singer's lawyer, Linda Mensch, said in a statement: "Robert Kelly is both alarmed and disturbed at the recent revelations attributed to him. Mr Kelly unequivocally denies such allegations."
BuzzFeed has said it is standing by its reporting.
  In 2008, R Kelly was acquitted of 14 charges of making child pornography after a videotape emerged allegedly showing him having sex with a 14-year-old girl.
Kelly is one of the most successful R&B artists of all time, with 40 million records sold worldwide. His best known hits include I Believe I Can Fly and Ignition (Remix).
