Usher Finally Claps Back At Herpes Accuser Suing For $20Million w/Interesting Response
Ever since the allegations that Usher allegedly infected a woman with herpes simplex II and ultimately settled out of court with her, supposedly for over a million dollars surfaced, folks have come outta the woodworks with claims of their own. One of Ushers three recent accusers is an unnamed woman- going by “Jane Doe” in court docs- who recently sued him for $20 million after she says she tested positive for herpes after having sex with Usher.
Up until now, Usher has pretty much remained silent about the allegations against him, but his newly filed court documents against the woman’s claims, are doing all the talking for him.
Here’s what was just reported about Usher’s legal clap back toward the woman’s claims and her multimillion dollar lawsuit:
Via TMZ: Usher wants one of those pesky herpes lawsuits tossed out, because the woman suing him has no proof he gave her anything … TMZ has learned. The singer has responded to the $20 million lawsuit filed by a Georgia woman who claims he gave her genital herpes back in April. In Usher’s legal docs, obtained by TMZ, he notes her lawsuit says nothing about whether she had been tested prior to their alleged sexual encounter. He says, “A previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her.”
And, Usher says, she could have contracted the STD after their alleged encounter. And he takes another shot, saying she assumed the risk of getting herpes by having “casual, unprotected sexual intercourse and/or oral sex.” It’s interesting … Usher did not attack the lawsuit by saying he couldn’t have given her herpes. One more thing … Usher’s lawyer grouses the woman is suing under a pseudomyn, claiming there’s no cause for her to secretly file her lawsuit. He’s asking the judge to throw out her lawsuit.
Now, of course the elephant in this room is that Usher apparently did not address, in the court docs, whether or not he has herpes…that is still up in the air. Although those in his inner circle reportedly have denied that he even has the disease.
Like we said before, another day, another legal problem in the life of an R&B singer. We’ll keep y’all posted on this one.
