UNITED STATES- The $20 million herpes lawsuit against R&B singer, Usher Raymond, has been dismissed after he allegedly reached a settlement with his accuser.
Going by TMZ, court documents revealed that Laura Helm, the lady who sued him filed to dismiss her suit earlier this week because she and Usher have “reached an amicable resolution.”
The publication also reported that they reached out to attorneys for both sides, and they only repeat that word .. “amicable.”
The dismissal was said to have been filed with prejudice, meaning it can’t be refiled, and that’s typically done when there’s been a financial settlement.
Back in 2017, Helm sued the singer, claiming he had exposed her to the virus when they had unprotected sex. She initially sued for $10 million, then increased it to $20 million for emotional harm and punitive damages.
She later filed to dismiss the case a few months later, for technical reasons, then refiled it in 2018. But now the case is closed.
