An unidentified male plaintiff is accusing pop singer Usher Raymond of refusing to turn over his medical records after alleging the singer exposed him to the herpes virus during a secret rendezvous.
The male John Doe — along with Atlanta resident Laura Michelle Helm, L.A. plaintiff Quantasia Sharpton and a Jane Doe — sued Usher last year for exposing them to the sexually transmitted disease.
Usher has continually denied having intimate relations with all of his accusers except for Helm, who re-filed her lawsuit in Atlanta earlier this year.
Helm dropped her initial lawsuit when her lawyer quit in disgrace after TMZ published audio of Helm saying Usher always wore condoms when they had sex.
John Doe claimed he had sex with Usher at a Koreatown spa in Los Angeles. According to The Blast, he recently filed court documents accusing Usher of refusing to provide medical records.
John Doe said Usher tried to invoke attorney-client privilege and physician-patient privilege to keep his medical records private.
Usher accused the man of harassing him with demands for his medical records and has refused to answer his discovery questions.
John Doe is also seeking a protection order over Usher’s medical records to protect Usher’s privacy and prevent embarrassment and distress to him.
John Doe says specifically the medical information he has obtained thus far from Usher, during discovery in the lawsuit, could result in public ridicule and harassment of the singer if the documents were released, according to The Blast.
The 39-year-old father of 2 and his long-suffering wife Grace Raymond recently announced their split, but sources say the couple only pretended to break up to protect their assets.
