“Let It Burn” Singer Hosting Charity Leadership Conference To Help Kids
Usher’s mushrooming sex scandal involving him allegedly giving his intimate partner herpes before paying her a $1.1 million settlement couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Usher’s foundation, “Usher’s New Look” kicked off its annual “Disruptive Innovation Summit” July 20 and 21, where 300 young people would get tips in business, tech and leadership.
Usher is listed as the host of the conference, and was scheduled to make an appearance there as a speaker, though it wasn’t clear if he actually showed up Thursday.
On Wednesday, an explosive report claimed that Usher knowingly gave his stylist sex partner herpes, and went as far as to explain away a greenish discharge coming out of his penis. The alleged victim said after three weeks of unprotected sex, she developed lesions on her vagina and went to an urgent care facility, where doctors diagnosed her with herpes. Usher later paid the woman $1.1 million.
The herpes revelations threaten to overshadow his work to ensure kids from underserved communities get equal access to technology and business skills.
Usher, who has been in Canada for performances this week, has yet to comment on the controversy and has turned the comments off on his Instagram page.
According to the charity’s website, “‘Usher’s New Look’ is a non-profit organization that transforms the lives of underserved youth through a 10-year comprehensive program that develops passion-driven, global leaders.”
Since its founding in 1999, “Usher’s New Look” has supported more than 42,000 young people, according to its website.
