I hope Usher is putting a reminder in his phone not to forget to tell future sex partners he’s got herpes, because this situation is starting to get expensive for ol’ Papa Bear.
Last week we learned that Usher had gotten into a little trouble back in 2012 for allegedly hooking up a former hookup with a herpes diagnosis. Then on Sunday, we learned Usher hadn’t learned his lesson and had maybe withheld his herpes diagnosis from another woman, “Jane Doe,” who was suing him for $10 million for not disclosing such information.
At the time the lawsuit was filed, Jane Doe didn’t have herpes; she was just freaked out that Usher’s unprotected dick could have exposed her to it. Well, Jane Doe recently got a call from her doctor, who was like: “U got it, u got it bad.” I highly doubt he said those words; I could be wrong, but I don’t believe any medical community would recommend breaking STD news with Usher lyrics. I also doubt any doctor would have followed up the news by saying: “Don’t…let it burn. Let’s talk about prescription options.”
The point here is, TMZ is saying that Jane Doe filed legal documents on Sunday claiming to have tested positive for herpes. Around the same time she filed her lawsuit for negligence, she went out and got an STD test. Not the order I would have done things in, but whatever. Now that Jane Doe has allegedly officially caught herpes from Usher, she wants $20 million for “emotional harm, medical bills, and punitive damages.”
$20 million seems like a lot, but according to the internet, usher is worth $180 million. Shoot, I knew Usher was rich, but he’s really rich. If Jane Doe gets that money, that still leaves him with $160 million. And that’s more than enough for a case or two of condoms (Usher, try them!). Hell, that’s enough to hire a condom butler to stand outside his bedroom in a latex suit holding a variety of rubbers on a silver tray.
