Usher Dennis Byron Laura Helm

More details have emerged about Usher’s Georgia accuser, Laura Helm, that may jeopardize her $20 million lawsuit against R&B crooner Usher.

Helm, 32, sued Usher for allegedly infecting her with the herpes virus. In her legal documents, filed in Fulton County, Georgia, Helm insisted Usher did not wear a condom during a sexual encounter in her hometown of New Orleans in April.

But that’s not what she told her former publicist, Dennis Byron — just 2 days before she filed her lawsuit against Usher.

Gossip webloid TMZ obtained a recording of Helm telling Byron that Usher did wear a condom during their sexual romp in New Orleans earlier this year.

According to TMZ, Helm said Usher had always worn a condom when they had sex, so she wasn’t concerned about being exposed to the herpes virus. Helm is heard on the audio tape saying, “That’s why they make protection, for people who have STDs.”

But Helm’s attorney, Lisa West, tells TMZ that Helm lied to Byron about Usher not using condoms because she thought Byron would try and sell the information to the blogs.

West claims Helm was trying to stop Byron from shopping a story that Usher had an extramarital affair.

West says Helm “didn’t want to be exploited and, in her attempt to deter Byron from doing so, she told him (inaccurately) that she never had protected sex with Usher and that she did not have herpes.”

Helm also accused Byron of stalking and extorting her in a restraining order filed 2 weeks ago.

But on Friday, magistrate Tamika Hrobowski-Houston threw out the restraining order for lack of evidence.

During the nearly 3 hour hearing, West accused Byron of selling information to a certain Atlanta blogger.

    I’m confused

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I may joke and play on these sites about what I would like to do to these celebrities but I’m real life I couldn’t. They’re nĂ¥stier than the average Joe. Looking without touching is enough for me.

  • Justlooknout

    Can we get a post of the Bobbi Kristina mess.

    Dementria did a great portrayal of Ms. Whitney
    I imagined Pat as a cold calculating bish and Auntie Viv delivered.

  • Karen Brady

    Basically!!! she did a good Whit I thought.. Bobbi Kris was totally irritating and I am now completely convinced that icky Nick is responsible for that girl’s death.

  • Elle

    Okay? Is it written incorrectly or are we not following ole girl’s line of reasoning if she did or didn’t use protection?

  • ViolettaBliss

    Condoms do not protect against Herpes…If you don’t want someone to sell your info to the blogs, shut your mouth…

  • Marlika

    This bitch is just lying ? period and need to go somewhere. ??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Basically she’s saying she lied to her former publicist (Dennis Byron) to throw him off because she didn’t want him shopping the story around to the press. But supposedly what she filed in the lawsuit is the actual truth, and Usher actually didn’t use protection.

  • KLo
  • NeverSurprised

    It was awful. Horrible writing, unfocused storyline. It seemed to be conceived more as a vehicle to showcase Demetria’s voice (which is fantastic) than it was a story about Bobbie Kris’s life.

  • bemetoo

    Usher has herpes usher did fawk her usher cheated on his wife more than once did usher give this lady herpes maybe

  • MookieFly

    I just wanna know if Usher got them califlower nuts. Why is that so hard?

  • KLo

    You know the saying Krama is a beach. What Usher did to Tameka and others is coming back to haunt him. I have no sympathy

  • hottlanta

    And the award for the person who told the whole world she has herpes goes to____________. Some contests I don’t even wanna enter.

  • Elle

    Ohhh, thank you!

  • hottlanta

    This is tooooo funny. I had the same look when I saw Dump wife#1 Ivanka said she is Dump first wife so that makes her the first lady. She called wife#2 Marla “showgirl” instead of calling her by her name in the book she is promoting.

  • Luv Pitties

    The statement regarding her saying he always wore a condom so she never worried about catching herpes says to me she knew about it the whole time he had it and chose to sleep with him anyway. Now she is just mad because she actually caught it. So this entire lawsuit is bs.

  • Quitedeliteful

    And why is she saying that she is 68 when she looks at least 80????

  • hottlanta

    Go to your room. That old skool face lift silicone has really settled in her face. Looks like someone has put straight pins in her face. It was an old skool monster who had straight pins in his face and she looks just like him.

  • Justlooknout

    Chile it was a hot mess, unfortunately it catapulted of the few brief times we I saw her. Like she didn’t have one lick of common sense. ZERO

    I blame everyone around her, from not snatching her and sending to the alps to a drug rehab and dumping Nick into a rushing wild river.


    LOL!!!!!!!!! Say that again!

  • millz

    I meet a lot of celebrities and now I just be looking at them like eww ? but in reality most of them look like they stink lol true there’s a handful of eye candy and fantasy lust worthy out there but I’ll pass before I catch something I can’t get rid of…
    Off topic here’s a picture of Mr. Nasir Jones from last night

  • freelancepimp .

    So a condom is enough to keep him form shopping the story. HAHA HA Right!

  • hottlanta

    People used to be quiet when they got herpes and now they act as if it is a badge of honor. My how times has changed. Like I said earlier had Usher been Ralph on fries at McDonald’s she will take her azz to the free clinic get her medication and keep it moving.

  • speakinmymind

    Shut ur face…
    Shut ur piehole…

    Both of those crossed my mind as alternatives…???

  • speakinmymind

    Dementia sounded one step away from bleating goat kandi. She was off pitch on every song…ugh??

  • Queen B

    If u was concerned about the possibility of shopping thw story you shudve kept your mouth closed


    LOL! i love the “ralph on fries” part. Women have devalued themselves by allowing men to leave his seed and DNA (std)with them and claim they are because it happened. Shame is no longer relevant with women or men anymore. So uncouthed.

  • Dennis Byron

    Who me?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!! All of that money she has and she still looks straight up busted!!! A 68 year old black woman with no riches and no facial surgeries looks 100 times better…

  • Karen Brady

    but her legs first then she’d really have nothing to worry about.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    I don’t know maybe it’s written incorrectly. Because she would want to lie about having protected sex….am I right?

  • Justlooknout

    DEMENTIA ????

  • Queen B

    So so true lol especially to married men

  • Pamela

    TI out there marching and shit, galvanizing folks to boycott. Lol

  • BrittBrat2005

    And Legs!

  • B.Loveitt

    Bravo!!! I’m glad a few of us know this! Then we have nerve to wonder why are HIV rates are so high and grown arse women talking about they’re getting pregnant by mistake. Bytch what? It’s 2017 if you didn’t want to be pregnant you don’t have to be and it has absolutely nothing to do with abortion or morning after pill. All these birth control methods are not failing like we like to claim. If so we’d be 30 billion strong in the US alone.

  • B.Loveitt

    I remember the first important case I got was the state of Georgia was Michael Vick’s herpes case. It was so much pressure, I was not ready for Primetime! Lawyers, News, who I can’t talk to, which way to go out the building etc. They continuously bug me to tell them info. they knew I could not tell. Condoms doesn’t stop Herpes and little do people know more people have herpes than you realize. A lot of people still don’t even know they have it yet, they have not a clue. Plus it’s’s non-reportable.

  • Elle

    I can’t call Mr.LeBrickJames stated, maybe she was just lying to dude on the phone saying she did use protection bc she didn’t want him to make a story out of it and run to the media before she did.

  • SouthernGirlAZWorld

    You’re probably right
