Usher Hits Back Over Herpes Lawsuit
Singer Usher has filed a legal document against a Georgia woman who accused him of infecting her with herpes in April.
The OMG singer is being sued for $20million by an unnamed woman in Georgia, who claims she contracted the sexually transmitted disease from him in April, and has now filed a response to her case. Usher wants one of those pesky herpes lawsuits tossed out, because the woman suing him has no proof he gave her anything …
In a legal documents obtained by TMZ, usher noted the lawsuit didn’t state whether she had been tested for the disease before their alleged sexual encounter.
He said: ”A previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her”.
In Usher’s legal documents, obtained by TMZ, he notes her lawsuit says nothing about whether she had been tested prior to their alleged sexual encounter. He says, “A previous sexual partner very well may have already infected her.”
And, Usher says, she could have contracted the STD after their alleged encounter.
And he takes another shot, saying she assumed the risk of getting herpes by having “casual, unprotected sexual intercourse and/or oral sex.”
It’s interesting … Usher did not attack the lawsuit by saying he couldn’t have given her herpes.
One more thing … Usher’s lawyer grouses the woman is suing under a pseudonym, claiming there’s no cause for her to secretly file her lawsuit.
He’s asking the judge to throw out her lawsuit.
