Jermaine Dupri Breaks His Silence On Usher's Herpes Lawsuit Scandal — Watch
Jermaine Dupri has finally broken his silence on the herpes scandal surrounding his frequent collaborator, Usher. 

The music producer has been spending lots of time in the studio with the "Let It Burn" singer and briefly weighed in on the situation.

Dupri was approached by TMZ while enjoying a night on the town and was asked how Usher was holding up with all the drama going on lately.

Dupri was obviously uncomfortable discussing Usher's scandal, simply stating that the R&B singer was dealing with the controversy by throwing himself into his music.

I don't know aboutchall

Jermaine was asked how Usher has been coping, simply responding, "Making music." 

"You gotta keep making music," he continued. "God blessed him. He gotta keep making music." 

Take a look at the clip, below:

Usher is being sued by two women and one man for failing to disclose he had herpes before they had sexual relations.
The lawsuit states they suffered "severe emotional distress, depression and anxiety. They have also experienced embarrassment, shame, anxiety and revulsion."

The plaintiffs are requesting punitive damages and they want Usher to reveal his herpes diagnosis.

Usher finally responded to one claim that he gave a woman herpes last week. The R&B singer filed court documents requesting the judge toss out the case because the alleged victim can't prove he gave her the STD. He took it one step further by noting that she put herself at risk by having unprotected sex.

In his response to the woman's lawsuit, he states the woman didn't reveal if she had been tested before their alleged hookup. His response states, "A previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her."

Usher also pointed out that "she assumed the risk of getting herpes by having casual, unprotected sexual intercourse and/or oral sex."

In 2012, Usher also reportedly paid a woman $1.1 million to settle a lawsuit after she claimed to have contracted herpes from him.

According to court documents filed by the celebrity stylist whom Usher settled the suit with in 2012, the singer was allegedly diagnosed with herpes around 2009 or 2010.

The stylist accused Usher of withholding his herpes diagnosis, while continuing to have unprotected sex with her. The woman later tested positive with the STD.
