Reports have it that a lawsuit against Usher in the region of $20 million has been dropped as both parties have reached an amicable settlement outside court. The Grammy winner was sued by Laura Helm who said he had exposed her to herpes after they had unprotected sex in 2017.
She initially sued the singer for $10 million but increased it to $20 million saying she had gone through punitive damages and emotional distress. A report from the court said she withdrew her suit as both families had reached an agreement outside court. The amount agreed on is yet to be disclosed.
She is not the only one who has filed a suit against the singer, another lady, Quantasia Sharpton, has also sued him for exposing her to STD after they hooked up in 2014. Though she didn’t come out with herpes, she sued for unspecified damages after their sexual encounter.
Usher has however kept his innocence story. The singer’s second marriage was dissolved in December 2018 after three years.
