Usher Raymond accuser Helm drops $20million lawsuit for the second time as they reach an ‘amicable resolution’
Recall that Helm in 2017 sued Usher, claiming he had exposed her to virus when they had unprotected sex. She initially sued for $10 million, then increased it to $20 million for emotional harm and punitive damages.
It would appear that Usher Raymond $20 million lawsuit, in which Laura Helm accused the “Confessions Part II” singer of exposing her to herpes, is finally behind him.
Helm had initially claimed in court docs that they hadn’t used any protection in their tryst, and that she’d caught herpes from Usher, who was married to Tameka Foster from 2007 to 2009 and they had three children together – one of whom died at 11 in a jet ski accident in 2012.
The case was dismissed after he allegedly reached a settlement with his accuser. According to source,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 dismissal was said to have been filed with prejudice, meaning it can’t be refiled.
That condition usually applies when there is a financial agreement. Attorneys for both Raymond and Helm would only say the dismissal of the case was ‘amicable’ and declined to discuss details.
Sequel to Helm’s lawsuit it emerged Usher had paid $1.1million to another woman in 2012 – a celebrity stylist – who accused him of giving her an STD. It was claimed he’d been infected since 2010.
Another woman suing the Love in This Club singer, named Quantasia Sharpton, is represented by high-profile lawyer Lisa Bloom.
