Usher’s Accuser Drops $20M Herpes Lawsuit

by | 20th November 2017

Good news for Usher as the lawsuit filed against him of infecting a woman with herpes has been dismissed.


TMZ reported that Laura Helm, who had at first filed the lawsuit under the name Jane Doe had asked that the court award her $20 million after she alleged that Usher had unprotected sex with her and gave her herpes.


However of Friday there were reports that Laura Helm was recorded telling someone on a phone call, two day before filing the suit, that she and Usher always used protection every time they had sex.


Helm’s lawyer withdrew from the case and a new attorney she hired had the lawsuit immediately dismissed without prejudice ‘with intent to refile.’


Usher’s lawyer, Steve Sadow, told People that they hope the dismissal will “bring an end to the opportunistic litigation against Usher in Georgia.”
