As if Usher didn’t have enough problems these days, here comes one more. Days after a new lawsuit being filed saying the superstar gave 3 women and 1 man herpes, now Usher’s insurance company wants no part of those lawsuits.
According to court documents filed by the New York Marine and General Insurance Company, they feel they shouldn’t have to pay up or defend him because he didn’t tell them he was infected.
The company submitted the paperwork to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, claiming the policy Usher has with them doesn’t apply to “bodily injury arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by insured.”
They also say that the policy expressly states that they don’t provide coverage for someone who has intentionally concealed or misrepresented any material fact or circumstance. The company continued saying he never told them he’d settled a prior lawsuit in 2012 over the same issue.
New York Marine is asking to be excused from the cases against Usher in California and Georgia. They always want to be reimbursed for expenses related to the case.
Usher hasn’t publicly commented on, or admitted to having herpes, but it seems as though he will be on the hook for paying his alleged victims himself.
Now his song “Burn” has a totally different meaning, doesn’t it?
