Usher And One Of His Herpes Accusers, Laura Helm, Are Taking Their Legal Case To Savage New Levels
Can you believe that it’s been a little over a year since all of the Herpes allegations came out against Usher? 

Yep, it was July 2017 when Quantasia Sharpton, Laura Helm and “Jane Doe” and “John  Doe” all came out and claimed that the R&B crooner either gave them Herpes or exposed them to the virus. 

The drama surrounding Usher had died down in recent months but one of the aforementioned accusers, Laura Helm, is dragging him back in court. 

Earlier this year, Helm claimed in her first lawsuit that Usher forced her to have unprotected encounter, thus resulting in contracting herpes. 

According to her, she was friends with Usher as they share(d) mutual friends. She then said he make overtures to her, which eventually led them to hopping in bed together twice during April 2017; once in Atlanta and once in New Orleans.

In those two bedroom showdowns, only a condom was used the first time. Laura says she found bumps on her cheek and private area below. After reading Usher previously settled a $1.1 million settlement to a woman over Herpes claims in 2012, she went and got tested. 


Laura initially requested $10 million in the herpes lawsuit against Usher. She later upped that amount to $20 million, after she tested positive for Herpes Simplex 2 back in July last year.

Usher fired back in court documents said that Laura assumed the risk when she decided to sleep with him and if she had brought a condom, the whole situation would’ve been avoided. 

He stated: "With a one in six chance that any given partner could have genital herpes, [she] assumed the risk of contracting an STD each and every time she chose to have unprotected sex with a casual, consensual partner."

Sounds like he admitted to having Herpes but I’m not a legal professional so I’ll just press forward.




Helm randomly decided to drop her $20 Million Dollar lawsuit against the “Confessions” singer for unknown reasons. 


Welp… she’s back now and she’s going all in. 

According to The Blast, Laura has filed another lawsuit against Usher after he reportedly claimed she didn’t mention if she had an STD prior to their intimate encounter and that she could have gotten the herpes outbreak from a previous lover.


Raymond says he didn’t do anything wrong and wants Laura to pay his legal bills while also mentioning once again that SHE never had protection on her.

“Defendant audaciously requests this Court to support his self-serving notion that an individual infected with an incurable virus owes no duty regarding his ‘hidden defect’ to a potential sexual partner," her new documents write. She adds how Usher's attempt to dismiss the case is  “a shallow attempt to divert responsibility."


The case will remain ongoing while the court decides on whether or not to approve Usher’s motion to dismiss.
