Usher Appears On 'Carpool Karaoke' As Reports Of A $20 Million Herpes Lawsuit Continue (VIDEO)
(AllHipHop News) It has been a rough couple of weeks in the public relations department for Usher.
The Atlanta-based entertainer has been accused of transmitting herpes to more than one woman.
An anonymous accuser is reportedly suing Usher for $20 million for allegedly infecting her with the STD.
As the Herpes stories continue to spread across the internet, the Confessions album creator is putting his own attention on his talents as an R&B superstar.
The Late Late Show hostJames Corden brought Usher on the program to take part in the "Carpool Karaoke" segment.
Corden and Ush sang "Yeah," "Burn," "Caught Up," "I Don't Mind," and “OMG."
They also took the time to have dancing lessons and to clean the singer's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
WhileRadarOnline claims Usher paid $1.1 million to settle a 2012 lawsuit for a herpes infection and TMZclaims a second woman filed a separate emotional distress suit for $20 million, Snopeslists the reports as "unproven."
The rumor-debunking website writes (in part):
We were also unable to find any civil lawsuit of this kind involving Usher...
We contacted Radar Online and asked them to provide the case number of the lawsuit against Usher, which their article claims was settled with a $1.1 million payment in December 2012. We did not receive any response...
According to TMZ’s first article, the woman’s lawsuit claims that she and Usher had sex in Atlanta, Georgia and New Orleans, Louisiana. We could not find any relevant lawsuit in the database of the Fulton County, Georgia Superior Court, and no one from the Orleans Parish Civil District Court was able to find any such lawsuit relating to New Orleans...
And despite our best efforts, we have not heard Usher’s side of the story; we are, therefore, unable to say whether or not the claims published by Radar Online and TMZ are true.
