Celebrity Scoops…updated Tuesday, 8.8.17

Usher AMAs credit ABC Rick RowellNot a good day to be Usher…the singer is being sued by a 21-year-old mother of three for “having sex with her and not saying he had herpes.” Quantasia Sharpton, who goes by Angel Valentino on social media, declared, “I need some money,” and “Enjoying my last couple of hours as a regular girl,” reports TMZ. She is one of three alleged victims – two women and a man – suing the singer for the same reason. The suit also states that he settled a $20 million lawsuit over herpes several years ago with a woman. Meanwhile, if the public embarrassment of the sexually transmitted disease wasn’t enough, his insurance company, New York Marine, claims they shouldn’t have to cover any part of this. The list of reasons, noted in documents obtained by People, states that the suit “does not apply to ‘bodily injury’” and implies that he intentionally ‘concealed or misrepresented’ a material fact or circumstance.

Jessica Alba posted a lovely tribute yesterday to her beloved dog Bowie, who passed away. “Came home do a dogless home – our sweet girl Bowie is now resting in peace with her sister Sidders. It’s been a rough two weeks. Will cherish our last night cuddling forever. Bowmeister was the sweetest love bug. RIP Bowie.” A few weeks ago she posted about how “Sid passed this morning” but had a long life. Awwww.

Sinead O'Connor Facebook 8-17Many are concerned about Sinead O’Connor, 50, who posted a 12-minute video on Facebook, saying that hse is living in a Travelodge motel in “the a**e end of New Jersey” and is suicidal. “I’m all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist – the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero – and that’s about the only f***ing thing keeping me alive at the moment…and that’s kind of pathetic. She also discussed mental illness and the difficulties of coping with it.
