Usher Reached Amicable Resolution Over $20 Million Herpes Lawsuit

Usher settled a lawsuit over claims he is spreading an STD around.

(AllHipHop News) R&B superstar Usher can put one court battle behind him after settling a $20 million lawsuit over allegations about his sexual health.

Laura Helm first launched legal action against the hitmaker two years ago, after claiming she contracted herpes from him during two unprotected sex sessions in July, 2017.

The singer denied the accusations, and Helm ended up requesting to have her suit dismissed for technical reasons, before refiling the case in Georgia again last year, demanding punitive damages for counts of negligence, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and fraud.

Usher continued to fight the allegations, but now the two parties have “reached an amicable resolution,” and Helm has moved to seek the dismissal of her second suit with prejudice, meaning she cannot refile the case at a later date.

Details about the settlement have not been revealed.
