Court documents obtained by People magazine suggest the 38-year-old R&B singer’s insurance company is ready to abandon ship. They’ve reportedly filed court documents in Los Angeles asking that a judge excuse them from the case.
According to the filing, submitted to the Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday, New York Marine and General Insurance Company reportedly claim they’re not obligated to defend Usher, born Usher Raymond, in his current lawsuits in California and Georgia, or any others that may crop up in the future.
In the documents, reports say the organization claimed the “Let It Burn” singer withheld his alleged herpes status from them, as well as his sexual partners.
They also claim he hid a previous lawsuit related to the sexually transmitted infection, which he’s thought to have settled in 2012 for $1.1 million.
The records indicate that Usher’s insurance company policy “does not provide coverage for an ‘insured’ who has intentionally concealed or misrepresented any material fact or circumstance,” according to the publication.
Additionally, People reported that New York Marine and General Insurance Company stated in the filing that Usher’s policy “does not apply to ‘bodily injury’…arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by insured.”
