It sounds like herpes isn’t the only thing Usher likes to pretend he doesn’t have.
Usher was being sued by a woman identified only as Jane Doe for allegedly exposing her to herpes. Eventually Jane Doe got tested, which resulted in a doctor opening the brown envelope and declaring “you ARE…going to need to get to the pharmacy with a prescription for Valtrex.” I don’t know if it happened exactly like that, but she did test positive for herpes. So she changed her lawsuit amount to $20 million and accused Usher of giving her herpes.
Usher wanted Jane Doe’s lawsuit thrown out, arguing that she could have gotten herpes from anyone. Which, yeah, that’s technically true. I don’t believe herpes sores come stamped with MANUFACTURED IN USHER’S PENIS anywhere on them. According to Jane Doe, the only thing being thrown out is everything of value owned by Usher. TMZ says Jane Doe has accused Usher of possibly “fraudulently” dumping assets in an attempt to avoid paying her the $20 million she’s asking for. She claims the only reason he’d be doing such a thing is to pull out the lining of his pockets in an “Aw shucks, no money for you here!” way if she were to win her lawsuit.
Now, Jane Doe doesn’t have any proof Usher is liquidating his life. But Jane Doe’s lawyer Lisa West thinks he’s up to no good based on some suspicious timing. Usher reportedly delayed the discovery process in the lawsuit by 90 days. Lisa implies he did this to give himself some time to hide his shit during the discovery phase.
If anything about Usher’s ongoing herpes woes have taught me anything, it’s that he’s a shady fuck who can’t always be trusted to tell the truth. Like, call me crazy, but I don’t think anyone should be that surprised if they come across multiple listings on Craigslist looking for someone to temporarily hold on to a box of Grammys. “Need them out FAST, ask for Justin B.”
