Usher’s attorneys said the R&B singer no longer needs to take a medical test in connection to the claim that he infected two women and a man with herpes, according to court documents obtained exclusively by RadarOnline.
As Radar readers know, Quantasia Sharpton said Usher had sex with her, an unnamed woman and an unnamed man, and exposed all of them to herpes. The man, referred to in the suit as John Doe, allegedly had sex with Usher in a spa in Koreatown in Los Angeles, while Sharpton claims she had sex with the singer on the night she attended his concert in Atlantic City.
Sharpton said the other woman, referred to as Jane Doe in the suit, had sex with Usher twice. The three filed a sexual battery suit against Usher in August 2017, and also filed a motion asking the court to order the singer to undergo an independent medical examination.
In court documents filed on March 23, Usher’s attorney opposed further testing and said his client has already provided all the information needed.
“Plaintiffs eventually served written discovery requests and in response, Defendant produced documents relevant to the issue addressed by the motion,” wrote attorney Zia F. Modabber in the affidavit. “Accordingly, the motion is moot.”
Meanwhile, attorneys representing the three accusers responded with their own opposition against Usher’s request to drop Jane Doe from the suit. The singer’s attorneys argued Los Angeles Superior Court might not be the appropriate forum to hear matters regarding Jane Doe since she does not live in the area.
In her response filed March 26, attorney Vanessa Hooker said Usher is exploiting California’s discovery law throughout the litigation in an attempt to dismiss Jane Doe’s claims.
“While Defendant contends that California is an inconvenient forum for him to defend against Jane Doe’s claims, he seems perfectly content to defend against Quantasia Sharpton’s claims in California despite the fact that Ms. Charpton is a resident of New York,” Hooker wrote in the March 26 affidavit.
