A woman is launching a new lawsuit against Usher over claims he gave her an incurable STD.
A woman who accused Usher of giving her herpes has launched a new lawsuit against him.
Laura Helm claimed she contracted the sexually transmitted disease during unprotected sex sessions with the Yeah! hitmaker in July.
The singer previously denied Helm's claims and in November of 2017, her lawyer requested the dismissal of a $20 million lawsuit without prejudice.
However earlier this week, Helm filed a new lawsuit in Georgia for several counts of negligence, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and fraud.
"Plaintiff suffers mentally and emotionally from the humiliation and stigma attached (to) a single woman infected with the incurable Herpes SV2," the lawsuit reads.
Helm is seeking unspecified damages.
Usher has not responded to the new lawsuit, but he is also facing legal action from Quantasia Sharpton, who went public with her rumored night of passion with Usher during a press conference in August.
Sharpton revealed she had not contracted herpes from the alleged encounter at a Days Inn hotel following an Usher concert in Atlantic City, New Jersey in 2014, but is suing because she believes she had been put at risk by the musician.
Usher has refuted her claims, but he is also being sued by an unidentified Georgia woman, who claims she was also diagnosed with herpes after sleeping with the singer.
She filed suit in July of 2017 demanding $20 million in punitive damages and another $20 million for emotional harm and medical bills.
The 39-year-old, who recently separated from his second wife Grace Miguel, has also denied those allegations and previously asked a judge to dismiss the lawsuit.
WOMAN ADMITS TO HAVING RELATIONSHIPS WITH 72 MEN WHILE MARRIED BECAUSE HER HUSBAND WAS NOT INTERESTING ENOUGH.
In a small town in Atlanta Georgia I was called to interview a lady named Sable. The-thirty-four year-old woman admitted to having intimate relationships with at least 72 men. She explained that for years she has put up with the neglect and disrespect from her husband and his family. Sable had to find a way to comfort herself and when doing small things around town would not help, she found herself on dating sites, bars, and social networks which resulted in her sleeping with men to relieve her stress.
Sable mentioned that there was no greater satisfaction than letting another man have all of her when her husband could no longer entice her mentally or sexually. After arguments Sable would find herself going through her call log and searching for the next man that she would enjoy sexually. It wasn’t until January 14th 2016 when Sable truly realized how dangerous her actions were when one of her lover’s wives caught on and showed up in the place of her connection. The wife of the Gentlemen had a gun and threatened the life of Sable. Sable mentioned that the wife said “If you ever contact my husband again, I will be in jail and you will be dead”.
Sable was so freighted to tell anyone about what had happened but confided this terrible information with her niece Jessica. Jessica felt the need to tell her uncle what was going on and let him know that he should also be tested for HIV. After Sable’s husband found out the news he explained that he had not been sleeping with his wife, because he knew all along of her devious activities on the web. In addition, that the woman that threatened her with the gun, was the same woman who was sleeping with Sable’s husband just last year. When asked how Sable reacted to the information after founding out what had happened, Sable mentioned that “Now I really don’t feel guilty of what I have done to that bastard”.

Michael Hurley, 34, is accused of stuffing a baby wipe down his 5-month-old's throat while he was home alone with the special-needs child. (Pinellas County Sheriff's Office)
TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. -- A Tarpon Springs father has been charged with attempted first-degree murder after police say he tried to kill his 5-month-old baby with a baby wipe.
Michael Hurley, 34, is accused of stuffing a baby wipe down the infant's throat while he was home alone with the special-needs child.
The baby's mother came home moments later to find the child not breathing. When she screamed for help, her next-door neighbor, who's a medical professional, came running over, Tarpon Springs Police say.
"I just ran in, and she was sitting on the sofa with the baby -- and he was blue. Blood was running out of his nose and mouth," Caliyah Anderson said.
Anderson said she knew she needed to act fast.
"I flipped the baby over, held his head back, tapped the back and told her to put the tip of her finger in his mouth and pull it out. She did, and it fell out on the floor," Anderson said.
Investigators said a balled-up baby wipe drenched in blood fell out on the floor.
"When I asked him, 'What is this? How did the baby get this in his mouth?' he said, 'I don't know; he must've got it.' I said, 'He can't crawl. He can't walk. That's not an explanation,' " Anderson said.
Police said the baby is still in intensive care, and the father is being held on a $500,000 bond.
Investigators said Anderson's medical knowledge helped save the baby's life, even though the aspiring doctor said she just did what any mother would do.
"There's a mom that's screaming. She needed help. That's what I did. I just ran and helped," she said.
Lovato said she celebrated six years of sobriety in March, but a recent song hinted that she was no longer sober.
LOS ANGELES — Grammy-nominated pop star Demi Lovato was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Tuesday after an apparent drug overdose from an unspecified narcotic, two sources familiar with the incident told NBC News.
The singer, 25, was rushed from her home in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where sources said she was stable, alert and breathing.
First responders who were called to Lovato's home used naloxone, an opioid-overdose antidote, to reverse the effects of the overdose, the sources said.
The news was first reported by TMZ, which had originally said Lovato had overdosed on heroin, but then backtracked and said it was another drug.
Lovato has been open about her battles with addiction, including a stint in rehab for issues related to an eating disorder and self-harm.
She said she celebrated six years of sobriety in March.
"So grateful for another year of joy, health and happiness," Lovato tweeted on March 15. "It IS possible."
But in a song released last month, she seemed to suggest that she had relapsed. The track, "Sober," included lyrics such as: "I'm so sorry I'm not sober anymore" and "I promise I'll get help."
Legions of fans — including several celebrity admirers — posted words of support on social media.
"I love @DDLovato so much," Ellen DeGeneres tweeted. "It breaks my heart that she is going through this. She is a light in this world, and I am sending my love to her and her family."
The R&B singer admits to 'imperfect ways' but still denies committing any specific crimes.
NEW YORK — R. Kelly sings about his troubles and battles in a new 19-minute song, addressing sexual abuse claims against him that have put a screeching halt on his career.
The song, "I Admit," was posted to Soundcloud on Monday. The track begins with the lyrics, "I admit I have made some mistakes/And I have some imperfect ways."
R. Kelly, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly,gets personal throughout the track, singing that he likes "all the ladies, that's both older and young ladies," following it up with: "But tell me how they call it pedophile because that (expletive) is crazy."
The embattled entertainer has long been accused of behavior that has ranged from questionable to criminal. He was accused of child pornography after a widely circulated videotape appeared to show him having sex with, and urinating on, a teenage girl. He was acquitted of all charges in 2008 and continued to rack up hits and sell out stadiums around the country.
On "I Admit," he sings that he's "not convicted, not arrested, dragged my name in the dirt/All this work to be successful, when you abandon me 'cause of what you heard."
R. Kelly is one of pop music's best-selling artists and his hits include "Ignition," ''I Believe I Can Fly," ''Step in the Name of Love" and "Bump N' Grind." He has also written hits for artists ranging from Celine Dion to Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga. While he's written classic love songs and even gospel music, he is defined by sexually explicit songs such as "Feelin' on Yo Booty," ''Your Body's Calling Me," ''Sex Me" and even more explicit fare.
On the new song, he says he was sexually abused as a child, singing "a family member touched me" and revealing he was "so scared to say something, so I just put the blame on me."
He also says that he does not own his music, that he dropped out of school and that he "couldn't read the teleprompter when the Grammy's asked me to present (an award)."
"I Admit" was not released on Sony's RCA Records, where R. Kelly is signed. The label said it had no comment about the song. R. Kelly posted a link to the song Monday with the caption: "Today is the day you've been waiting for."
In April, R. Kelly's concert in his hometown of Chicago was canceled around the time the Times' Up campaign took aim at the singer over allegations he sexually abused women. Weeks later, Spotify removed his music from its playlists, citing its new policy on hate content and hateful conduct.
"Now the truth in this message is I'm a broke (expletive) legend/The only reason I stay on tour is 'cause I gotta pay my rent," he sings on the new track.
In May, a woman filed a lawsuit against R. Kelly, accusing the singer of sexual battery, knowingly infecting her with herpes and locking her in rooms for punishment.
"They're brainwashed, really?/Kidnapped, really?/Can't eat, really?/Real talk, that (expletive) sound silly," he sings.
R. Kelly says in the song he had a recent conversation with talk show host Wendy Williams, who asked him about the late singer Aaliyah, who was 15 when she married a 27-year-old R. Kelly in 1994. The marriage was later annulled.
"(Wendy) said, 'What about Aaliyah said?,' R. Kelly sings, responding with: "Love."
"She said, 'What about the tape?'/I said hush," he continues. "I said my lawyer said 'don't say noth'/But I can tell you I've been set up."
The song sparked outrage on social media, with celebrities and activists condemning R. Kelly and calling for his arrest.
"His lack of self awareness is atrocious. There are several lyrics I take offense to," Rapper Talib Kweli Greene said in a Twitter post. "The one I will address is “I’m just a man.” I am also a man. I would never use that to defend this behavior." Questlove of The Roots, who apparently listened to R. Kelly's new track, tweeted he wanted his 19 minutes back.
