*The woman accusing Usher of exposing her to herpes has always maintained that she and the singer hooked up at a hotel after he picked her out of one of his concerts and got her number.
Now, TMZ is reporting that a woman who says she worked at the hotel in question has now come forward to support the claims. The employee says she decided to come forward because she was offended by Usher’s statement to TMZ that he didn’t have sex with the accuser, Quantasia Sharpton, because she wasn’t his type.
After some super sleuthing, TMZ was able to confirm a lot of Sharpton’s story:
We found out the concert in question was in Atlantic City, New Jersey on November 15, 2014. Sharpton was at the concert — we know that because we found this pic of her with August Alsina, Usher’s opening act at the venue.
Notice she’s wearing a birthday tiara. She says although she was at the show celebrating her birthday, the concert was held several weeks after she turned 19. That checks out … her birthday is in late October.
Someone who says she worked at the Days Inn in Atlantic City — less than a mile from the concert venue — tells TMZ she saw Usher come into the lobby shortly after midnight on November 16. She says Sharpton came down, greeted the singer in the lobby and brought him to her room.
She says she asked Usher for a pic and he said he’d take one with her before leaving the hotel. She says she waited an hour but he never returned.
Sources connected with Quantasia say she did indeed stay at the Days Inn the night of the concert, and that is where she is claiming she had sex with Usher.
