Usher & Attorneys Fight Herpes Lawsuits w/An Eyebrow Raising Response
We’ve all heard by now, that Usher has three pending lawsuits against him from accusers who all claim he either put them at risk for herpes or that they actually contracted herpes from him.
There are two women and one man making claims against the brotha. Up until now, Usher was pretty much silent on the topic, with the exception of that one time that he responded, through his team, that one of the accusers, Quantasia Sharpton, was ‘not his type.’
Usher’s & His Attorneys’ Response To Claims
Things have changed as of today though, because for the first time ever, his attorneys have spoken out and given his side of the story, which some would say is pretty interesting.
Here’s what was reported via TMZ: Usher just fired back at the 2 women and a man who claimed he exposed them to genital herpes … and he says it’s all BS. Usher’s legal team just filed a response to the California herpes lawsuit. He denies everything … specifically, their claims he had sexual contact with them, and the claim he exposed them to herpes. […] Usher, through his lawyers Laura Wasser and Zia Modabber, also raises an interesting argument … the 3 plaintiffs can’t win because they have “unclean hands.” That means he’s alleging they did something wrong, although he’s not specific. And there’s this … Usher claims the 2 women and the man don’t have a legal claim because anything Usher might have done was unintentional. The intimation … if he had herpes, he didn’t know it at the time. And finally he says if he did have sex with them they “assumed the risk” … again, the intimation is that they assume the risk of contracting an STD.
There’s a lot of legal jargon going on in the wording of Usher’s response, understandably so. But the eyebrow raiser is that although he denied ‘all claims,’ his attorneys are also saying that if the accusers did contract something, Usher didn’t do it ‘intentionally.’ So it still leaves the question in the minds of many- (1) Does he, or does he not, have herpes?; and (2) Did he, or did he not, actually have sex with ALL THREE of the accusers in this case?
Side note: We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again- none of this is any of our business because it’s a private matter for Usher and his accusers. However, now that the issue has been made so public by all involved, inquiring minds of Usher’s millions of fans wanna know.
