NEWSFLASH!!! Usher can finally put that $20 million dollar herpes lawsuit behind him and he’s free to “let it burn” out of court.
It’s being reported today that the superstar has reached an “amicable resolution” in the STD lawsuit filed by Laura Helm and sh’s now filed to dismiss… again.
Helm filed to dismiss her suit earlier this week because she and Usher have “reached an amicable resolution.”
[Translation: Usher cut a check!]
Both sides are tight lipped as to how much that “resolution” actually cost Usher.
According to TMZ:
Usher’s put that $20 million herpes lawsuit with Laura Helm behind him — the case has been dismissed again, but this time it looks like they reached a settlement.
According to court docs, Laura filed to dismiss her suit earlier this week because she and Usher have “reached an amicable resolution.” As to how much that resolution cost Usher — neither side will say.
We reached out to attorneys for both sides, and they would only repeat that word … “amicable.” The dismissal was filed with prejudice … meaning it can’t be refiled, and that’s typically done when there’s been a financial settlement.
As previously reported, Helm originally filed suit against the singer back in 2017 … claiming he had exposed her to the virus when they had unprotected sex. She initially demanded $10 million in damages, then increased it to $20 million, citing emotional harm and punitive damages.
Helm then refiled the case in 2018 but the case is finally closed after the successful resolution.
I guess congrats are in order for both parties.
