Usher has settled his $20 million herpes lawsuit. According to TMZ, Laura Helm — who sued the singer in 2017 claiming that he exposed her to the virus when they allegedly had unprotected sex, has dismissed her lawsuit. The lawsuit has been dismissed because Helm and Usher have “reached an amicable resolution.” The details of the resolution, however, are unclear.
The decision was filed with prejudice, which means that it cannot be refiled. This typically indicates that a financial settlement was reached. Whether or not the two reached a financial settlement has not been confirmed.
