Sharpton in her statement regarding her lawsuit said:

I am doing this so that he does not do this to anyone else. Usher, if you are negative, please say so. If you are positive, you need to warn your sex partners, so that they can make their own informed decisions.

She has tested negative for Herpes.One among the two remaining accusers stated as Jane Doe and John Doe in the court papers has herpes, according to their attorney, Lisa Bloom. 

The lawsuit asks for compensation in the form of money for exposure to the virus and requires Usher to inform his partners of his health situation beforehand. The plaintiffs filed the case in Los Angeles.

This is, however, not the first time Usher has come around a lawsuit concerning herpes, it was reported that he settled a lawsuit of this very nature for $1.1 million with a celebrity stylist. Reportedly, the eight-time Grammy winning artist was first diagnosed with Herpes' virus back in 2009/2010 after he divorced Tameka Foster, his first wife.
