Usher's multiple herpes accusers are seriously moving mountains against him.
Laura Helm, who was previously referred to as "Jane Doe," went public and filed a $20 million lawsuit accusing Usher for allegedly giving her the virus. Separately, a man claiming he met Usher at a Koreatown spa claims they had sex and the Grammy winner gave him herpes. Another woman accused Usher of giving her the disease, which caused her twins to be stillborn. Also, there's viral superstar Quantasia Sharpton, who said they had sex at a Days Inn in November 2015.
Now, according to Bossip.com, "[Quantasia] Sharpton and her co-plaintiffs filed docs in L.A. County Superior Court asking a judge to force Usher to take a blood test by next month to prove that he doesn’t have the herpes simplex virus." They reportedly want him to take the test by October 25.
In the meantime, Usher's team is clapping back at one of his accusers, Laura Helm. According to court docs obtained by TMZ, "she assumed the risk of catching an STD when she got in bed with him." Laura's team responded by saying she didn't know the risk because he didn't reveal his STD status and "consent to sex does not equal consent to risk of catching STDs."
Obviously, if Usher does not have the virus, taking the test would make all of this drama disappear and the accusers would look like money-hungry fools. But if he's unwilling to go there, he might need to find another way to manage this bad press, because these folks don't seem to be going away on their own.
We hope this is solved soon!
