usher finally opens up about the $20 Million Herpes Lawsuit
Well Well Well!! Usher has finally responded to one claim that he gave a woman herpes. The R&B singer responded to the $20 million lawsuit filed against him in April by Atlanta woman, claiming he knowingly infected her with herpes.
Usher filed court documents requesting the judge toss out the case because the alleged victim can’t prove he gave her the STD. He took it one step further by noting that she put herself at risk by having unprotected sex. Both parties knew what was going on, and both were fully aware of the risk involved. If you don’t test your partner, I mean what do you expect??
In his response to the woman’s lawsuit, he states the woman didn’t reveal if she had been tested before their alleged hookup. His response states, “A previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her.”
Usher also pointed out that “she assumed the risk of getting herpes by having casual, unprotected sexual intercourse and/or oral sex.” However, the “Let It Burn” singer didn’t come out and deny that he could have given the woman herpes.
The woman, who filed the herpes lawsuit as Jane Doe, initially sued Usher for $10 million in July for exposing her to the STD. She later upped the request to $20 million, after allegedly finding out days later that she had tested positive for herpes.
The news first made headlines after it was revealed that he paid out $1.1 million in 2012 to an unidentified woman. She claimed Usher had infected her with herpes. The documents showed that Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond IV, was diagnosed with the disease in 2009 or 2010.
Three more people accused Usher of exposing them to herpes in early August, including two women and a man.
The lawsuits filed against Usher on August 7, claimed the women had vaginal sex with Usher and that the man had oral sex with the singer.
The plaintiffs are suing Usher for failing to disclose he had herpes before they had sexual relations. The lawsuit states they suffered “severe emotional distress, depression and anxiety. They have also experienced embarrassment, shame, anxiety and revulsion.”
The plaintiffs are requesting punitive damages and they want Usher to reveal his herpes diagnosis. Usher is asking for the case to be thrown out… Basically he says… “She could’ve got it from anyone! ” 😂😂😂
