Good news for Usher, who has been battling an ongoing lawsuit from an accuser that claimed he gave her herpes a few years ago after pop locking in her coochie without a condom. She was one of several who accused Usher of giving them the gift that keeps on giving. This case has been brewing in the background for quite a while with Usher constantly denying that he gave her anything at all. And now TMZ is reporting that everything has come to an amicable end, which basically means a bitch got PAID.
Usher’s accuser Laura Helm originally filed the $20 million suit against him in 2017 with her first lawyer Lisa West. Once Lisa jumped ship because of friction with her client, Laura hired another lawyer. Then the case was subsequently dropped after it was alleged that Laura had informed someone over the phone she and Usher did indeed use protection. However, the case was re-opened in 2018 and now after all of the back and forth between both parties, the case has been dropped once again. The difference now is that the case has been “dropped“, as in someone must have opened up their wallet and dug down really deep. Usher and Laura can finally put this nastiness (pun intended) behind them once and for all.
According to court docs, Laura filed to dismiss her suit earlier this week because she and Usher have “reached an amicable resolution.” As to how much that resolution cost Usher — neither side will say.
We reached out to attorneys for both sides, and they would only repeat that word … “amicable.” The dismissal was filed with prejudice … meaning it can’t be refiled, and that’s typically done when there’s been a financial settlement.
Perhaps the amicability came in the form of $10 million since that was the original asking price Laura put out there in the initial stages of the lawsuit. It’s amazing how money seems to be the perfect cure for the incurable herpes, much like how money is the perfect cure for damn near everything else. Break your leg on the job? Here’s some cash to help with the swelling. Husband embarrassed you by fucking everyone? Here’s a few stacks to help you sleep at night. Whatever, congrats to you both I guess. And if Usher is looking for ways to make that money back he can always headline at next year’s Coachella since they welcome herpes with open arms there. They can even rename it the Let It Burn festival and if Usher gets suspicious about the name change they can always blame it on the desert heat.
