Access Hollywood: Usher Pleads With Judge To Keep Medical Records Sealed In Herpes Lawsuit
Celebrity News USA: Usher Pleads With Judge To Keep Medical Records Sealed In Herpes Lawsuit
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Usher is pleading with a judge to seal his private medical records as part of an ongoing case, in which he is accused of giving two women and a man herpes. The “Love in this Club” hitmaker doesn’t want private health diagnoses that are not relevant to the case disclosed.
“There is no gray area that allows for the revelation of some of Jane Doe’s personal information without compromising her privacy rights,” he says in the filing. “Any public exposure of her private information could result in significant harm to Jane Doe.”
Laura Helm first launched legal action against the singer two years ago, after claiming she contracted herpes from him during two unprotected sex sessions in July, 2017. Usher denied the allegations and Helm called for her suit to be dismissed before refiling the case in Georgia last year (18), demanding punitive damages for counts of negligence, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and fraud. Usher continued to fight the allegations but the two parties reached an amicable resolution in May (19).
Meanwhile, Usher is also challenging similar accusations from three other people as part of a case filed by Quantasia Sharpton, who argued the father-of-two had put her at risk by failing to inform her he had allegedly contracted a sexually transmitted disease before they hooked up at a Days Inn hotel following a concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 2014.
The judge has yet to rule on the matter.
