Even People Without Herpes Are Suing Usher for Giving Them Herpes Now

So remember when Usher paid one of his exes a million dollars as a “sorry I gave you herpes” present? ┬áPeople were coming out of the woodwork for some of that sweet Usher STD settlement money, including a dude. Which, you know, fair play, but kind of the weirdest way we’ve found out about a celebrity’s potential bisexuality. Well, aside from that “Dancing In The Street” cover Mick Jagger and David Bowie did in 1985.

Well, according to TMZ, Usher says they’re all lying. Or criminals. Or they just should have known some dicks just have a bit of herpes.

Usher, through his lawyers Laura Wasser and Zia Modabber, also raises an interesting argument … the 3 plaintiffs can’t win because they have “unclean hands.” That means he’s alleging they did something wrong, although he’s not specific.

And there’s this … Usher claims the 2 women and the man don’t have a legal claim because anything Usher might have done was unintentional. The intimation … if he had herpes, he didn’t know it at the time.

And finally he says if he did have sex with them they “assumed the risk” … again, the intimation is that they assume the risk of contracting an STD.

The interesting part of his case is the one named defendant, Quantasia Sharpton. Usher claims he never had sex with her and that he brought her on stage at a concert to make her feel better about being an uggo. Well, again from TMZ, she’s run into a problem as it’s come to light that the sex tape she’s been claiming she made with Usher doesn’t actually exist.

Sharpton did an interview with Miss Jacob Tuesday and claimed straight-up … she made a sex tape with Usher and he was down with it.

Sharpton’s attorney, Lisa Bloom, tells us her client’s statement is really just a “misunderstanding” … Bloom says there is no sex tape. We’re guessing Bloom had no idea Sharpton did the interview.

Oh, and Sharpton doesn’t have herpes. While it’s clearly not okay to go all Typhoid Mary on your groupies, I don’t see how someone who doesn’t have an STD is suing someone for giving her an STD. It’s like suing Chuck Lorre because you laughed too hard at one of sitcoms and injured yourself; no one is going to believe that.
