Usher is set to be sued by a man and two women who allege he exposed them to herpes after having sexual relations with them, Gossip Cop confirms. The lawsuit is set to be filed in California on Monday, according to their attorney Lisa Bloom. The lawyer says the three individuals claim “Usher had sexual contact with them after 2012, and failed to warn them of his alleged STD, as required by law.”

As Gossip Cop recently reported, Usher was sued for $20 million by a women who alleges he hid that he had the STD when they had unprotected sex last year. At first the woman, only identified as “Jane Doe,” was seeking $10 million but she upped the amount in her lawsuit after having tested positive for herpes. The plaintiff maintained in her court papers that she never would have had sex with Usher if she knew he had herpes.

It was only after she read that Usher had settled a $1.1 million lawsuit in 2012 with another woman the musician allegedly infected with the disease that she decided to file a lawsuit. That plaintiff is seeking damages for emotional distress, her medical bills, negligence and battery. She’s also looking for punitive damages. It’s unknown at this point how much the three new complainants will seek in their lawsuit.

Gossip Cop is told one of the new female plaintiffs as well as the male complainant will only be identified as “Jane Doe” and “John Doe” in the court papers. The second women, however, is expected go public with her accusations.

While Usher was (and remains) married to his manager Grace Miguel when he had sex with the woman seeking $20 million, it’s unclear what his status was when he allegedly had sexual contact with the three new people. It should be noted, however, that they claim their sexual encounters with Usher were in the past five years, and he’s been involved with Miguel for a long time. Gossip Cop has reached out to a rep for Usher for comment.
