No Settlement in Herpes Lawsuits

Usher will not settle with the people suing him for allegedly exposing them to the herpes virus … sources close to the singer tell TMZ.

The sources say there have been no settlement talks — none — and we’re told Usher has no interest in making the claims go away in return for money.

As we reported, 4 people — 3 women and a man — are suing Usher, claiming they had sexual contact and he didn’t inform them he allegedly had genital herpes. Usher hasn’t addressed the herpes allegations.

There’s one caution … as one source put it, although settlement isn’t on the table, as lawsuits progress there’s always a cost/benefit analysis based on money — how much it costs to defend yourself against a lawsuit vs. how much it costs to end it.
