Quantasia Sharpton, who said the singer did not reveal his alleged herpes diagnosis before engaging in sex with her, has dropped her case, The Blast reported

Her attorney, Lisa Bloom, recently filed to dismiss the suit. It is unclear if there was a settlement, according to the celebrity news site. 

Sharpton is one of at least three individuals who accused the star of exposing them to herpes. 

In 2017, Sharpton; an anonymous man, identified as John Doe; and an anonymous woman, identified as Jane Doe sued Raymond and said he risked their health by not revealing his alleged diagnosis. 

Laura Helm, an Atlanta woman, sued Usher in 2017 for allegedly giving her herpes. That case was dismissed earlier this year. 

The dismissal was filed with prejudice, which means the lawsuit has been dropped permanently and Helm will not be able to refile. 

Raymond’s other cases are ongoing.
