Attorney Speaks Out To Defend Usher STD Accuser Over Her “I Need Money” Post

Posted On : August 8, 2017

Usher’s latest accuser, Quantasia Sharpton (also known as Angel Valentino) has caused quite a stir over the past two days.

First, she and her celebrity attorney, Lisa Bloom, held a press conference on Monday (8-7-17) about her claims that Usher sexed her up without telling her he was allegedly herpes positive. Then she was quickly outed by two of her reported friends online, for being a fraud in several ways. As if that weren’t enough heat, all sorts of facts about Quantasia began to surface, including one that we uncovered, which was that on July 19th, she joked online about preferring to have R. Kelly “piss” on her versus risking catching alleged herpes from Usher.

However, it is Quantasia’s tweets she posted- in the days prior to her press conference- that has her attorney, Bloom, speaking out in her defense. One of her tweets read “I need money” and the other read “Enjoying my last couple of hours as a regular girl.”

Needless to say, Quantasia has been getting dragged to hell on social media ever since that and the countless other revelations about her surfaced.

Her attorney is saying that folks shouldn’t be so quick to judge her client’s actions though. Check out what Lisa Bloom has now told TMZ below…

Bloom defended Quantasia’s social media post saying she’s hard up for cash … which came one week prior to the suit. Bloom says it’s unfair to connect the two things — “It’s not a crime to be poor in America. It’s not a crime to be honest about the fact you need money. Most people need money.” She points out Quantasia didn’t put a dollar amount on the lawsuit, and only wants what a jury deems fair. In addition, Bloom says Quantasia’s been repeatedly fat shamed online since the news conference. As for the tweet about her last hours as “a regular girl” — just before going public — Bloom says it’s only natural her client was nervous, but still … she’s been “so brave to step forward.”

Hmmm…do you think this is just a case of Usher’s accuser and her attorney trying to do a lil’ damage control, or nah?
