Yikes! Usher Offers Fresh Response To Herpes Allegations
There seems to be ‘No Limit’ to the drama Usher finds himself facing these days.
With his multi-platinum sights set on his new album, the icon finds himself forced to battle potentially baseless claims that he knowingly infected his sexual partners with the Funk.
This week, he has filed legal documents he hopes will put an end to the drama once…and for all.
Usher’s attorney, Steve Sadow, stated in the documents…
With a one in six chance that any given partner could have genital herpes, plaintiff assumed the risk of contracting an STD each and every time she chose to have unprotected sex with a casual, consensual party.
To be perfectly clear, Usher is not asking the court to pass moral or societal judgment on plaintiff. He is only seeking the correct application of the legal doctrine of assumption of risk as interpreted and construed in Georgia’s appellate decisions.
Court documents obtained before this revealed that the generous performer sent $1 million to a lady who accused him of infecting her. This, before three more of his alleged partners came forward seeking compensation for the same reason.
He has repeatedly denied that he infected anyone.
