Usher‘s insurance company doesn’t want to pay for his herpes-related lawsuits.
The 38-year-old R&B singer was recently sued by three different people after they claimed the “Yeah!” singer didn’t tell them he had a sexually transmitted disease (STD) prior to sexual encounters. At least one of the three plaintiffs tested positive for the herpes virus.
According to court documents filed at the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday morning, New York Marine and General Insurance Company stated they shouldn’t be under any obligation to help Usher with his current herpes-related lawsuits, nor any future similar lawsuits. The insurance company asserted that the singer’s policy “does not apply to ‘bodily injury’ … arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by insured.”

The lawsuit also indicated that the insurance company claimed that it was under no obligation to defend Usher since he reportedly failed to disclose he had an STF to several partners. Further, the company claimed Usher never revealed that he settled a similar previous claim for $1.1 million.
It’s still unclear if the insurance company is off the hook, but its representatives are asking the court to clear New York Marine and General Insurance Company from any Usher herpes-related lawsuits for both pending and future case.
