Usher’s herpes lawsuit has been postponed until next year.
The star is facing court action from Quantasia Sharpton, who claims the musician put her at risk by not informing her allegedly suffered from herpes before their reported tryst at a Days Inn hotel following an Usher concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 2014.
Usher has refuted her claims and the two parties were set to go to trial in August but it has since been postponed to February of 2019 after Usher filed a motion questioning if the case should be heard in Los Angeles.
According to reports, an anonymous woman has recently joined the suit.
The judge also reportedly postponed the trial because he did not feel there would be enough time for each side to exchange evidence.
Another unidentified Georgia woman also claims she was diagnosed with herpes after sleeping with the musician.
She filed suit in July 2017, demanding $20 million in punitive damages and another $20 million for emotional harm and medical bills.
Usher, who recently separated from his second wife Grace Miguel, has also denied those allegations and previously asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
