Usher Raymond may be forced to respond to allegations that he exposed people to a sexually transmitted disease — if a judge approves his insurance company’s request to drop his coverage.
Court documents obtained by People magazine details a filing made by the singer’s insurance company, New York Marine and General.
In the court filing, the insurance company said it is not obligated to defend him in a lawsuit filed in Georgia. The lawsuit, filed by a New Orleans R&B singer, is based on a report published on a gossip website.
The insurance company claimed Usher withheld his alleged herpes status from them, as well as his alleged sexual partners.
The insurance company’s filing means Usher will soon be forced to prove he is not infected with herpes.
The company also claims the “Let It Burn” singer hid a previous lawsuit, which he allegedly settled in 2012 for $1.1 million.
The NY Daily News reports that the insurance company will remain on Usher’s Georgia lawsuit until an L.A. Superior Court judge hands down a ruling.
Searches of the L.A. Superior Court and Pacer databases did not locate any of the court documents pertaining to the claims made by gossip blog Radar Online, which broke the story in July.
Gossip website TMZ.com did not post the documents because they could not verify the authenticity of the court papers posted on Radar Online’s website.
A source close to Usher’s camp tells Sandrarose.com the singer is building a defamation case against his accusers and their lawyers — but he is not going after Radaronline.com…
Let that burn.
