Usher responds to Herpes lawsuit
Singer Usher has filed a legal document against a Georgia woman who accused him of infecting her with Herpes in April.
Usher wants the $20million lawsuit tossed out because the woman has no proof he gave her the incurable disease.
According to TMZ, Usher says “her lawsuit says nothing about whether she had been tested prior to their alleged sexual encounter since a previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her.”
Usher’s document is also claiming there is no cause for the woman to secretly file the lawsuit questioning why she used a pseudonym.
