Usher’s Herpes Lawsuit Dismissed

Usher’s Herpes Lawsuit Dismissed

After a longstanding legal battle between Usher and the Georgia woman, who accused him of infecting her with herpes, the lawsuit has been dismissed.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

According to TMZ, the $20 million lawsuit filed by Laura Helm, claimed the singer transmitted the STD after the two had unprotected sex. Although Usher rebutted, saying the woman assumed the risk, the lawsuit lost its merit after a phone called surfaced of the woman saying she only had protected sex with the singer.

Afterwards, the woman’s lawyer withdrew from the case, forcing Helm to get a new lawyer. The new lawyer then filed to dismiss the suit. However, the suit has been dismissed without prejudice, “with intent to refile,” TMZ reports.

It remains unclear why the lawyer dismissed the suit.
