Usher’s $20 Million Herpes Lawsuit Dismissed

One of the people accusing Usher of having herpes has seen their $20 million dreams dashed—for now at least. Laura Helm, the woman who originally filed as Jane Doe and whose lawsuit kicked off the Usher herpes allegations, is being forced to move on.

Helm’s lawsuit in which she accused Usher of failing to warn her of his reported herpes, has been dismissed. As previously reported the woman claimed that she got the disease from the singer, but confessed in a recorded phone call two days before the lawsuit was filed that she only had protected sex with Usher.

According to TMZ, Helm’s lawyer stepped down from representing her and Helm hired a new attorney—but that attorney just made a surprising decision. On Friday her new layer filed court documents to dismiss the case and a judge granted that dismissal without prejudice “with intent to refile.” The “intent to refile” is especially interesting and means URSHERRR isn’t completely in the clear here.

Despite that, Usher’s lawyer has since reached out to PEOPLE Magazine with a statement;

“It’s our sincere hope that this dismissal will bring an end to the opportunistic litigation against Usher in Georgia,” said Usher’s lawyer Steve Sadow.

Now the real question is, what does this mean for Quantasia and Lisa Bloom???

What do YOU think about this lawsuit getting dismissed? Mind you back in 2012 he did settle with another woman who alleged she contracted the virus from him.
