Quantasia Sharpton appeared at a press conference Monday morning alongside attorney Lisa Bloom, while the two other plaintiffs remain unnamed. Later, a security guard picked me up and asked me for my number.
"I feel like my rights were violated", she said, before revealing he real reason she made a decision to join the lawsuit against Usher.
Three different people sued R&B singer, Usher, on Monday, claiming the "You Got it Bad" singer didn't warn them he had herpes.
According to Bloom at least one of her clients has tested posted for the virus and alleges that it was Usher who transmitted it.
Exactly one week before the press conference, Sharpton - who goes by Angel Valentino on social media - wrote on Facebook: "I need some money", TMZ reports. "Raymond's failure to rebut the numerous reports that he has Herpes has reasonably induced the Plaintiffs to believe that Raymond has the virus and that he exposed them to it".
Shortly after the report came out, a woman sued Usher for $20 million, claiming that he did not disclose that he was carrying herpes before their sexual encounters.

Despite its taboo status, herpes is common in the U.S. According to the CDC, about one in six Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 have the virus.
On July 19, documents were leaked online, showing that in 2012, Usher admitted in court documents to having herpes.
The third victim who contracted from Usher due to unprotected sex is a man. Bloom mentioned in a statement that the identities of the other two victims will be kept secret. I would not have taken a risk of getting an incurable disease. She also explained that they had done a test which was negative but said that she felt "raped".
"We spoke for a while and then we engaged in sexual contact", she said.
After she returned to her hotel, she got a call from Usher, asking for her hotel and room number.
The 38-year-old singer, who has been married to his manager Grace Miguel since 2015, has yet to publicly comment on the allegations.
"We hope that he has not knowingly endangered his sex partners, fans who revered him and who were thrilled to receive his personal attention", said Bloom.
