Usher’s wife Grace Raymond has responded to claims that her husband has passed on herpes to multiple people.
A number of women are suing the 39-year-old ‘Yeah’ singer of exposing sexually-transmitted diseases to them.
Grace, however, seemed unfazed when questioned at LAX airport by a TMZ photographer over her spouse’s ongoing scandal.
Asked what her message to Usher’s accusers is, the 48-year-old said: ‘People are people, living their lives – have a great day’.
Pressed further for a response, Grace – who was on a FaceTime call with what appeared to be Usher at the time – replied, ‘That’s it’.
The remark came just weeks after TMZ reported that one of his accusers had parted ways with her lawyer Lisa West. Laura Helm, the accuser in question, is suing Usher for $20 million [£25.2m]. However, she reportedly is on the fence about moving forward with the lawsuit.
In court documents, Helm said that she contracted herpes after having unprotected sex with Usher. Her claim does not match a previous statement she made saying they did use condoms.
Quantasia Sharpton, another woman suing the singer, is being represented by high-profile lawyer Lisa Bloom. Sharpton claimed that while she didn’t contract herpes from Usher, he exposed her to it.
In September, the outlet reported that a man is also suing the entertainer. The man said that he and Usher had sex at a spa in downtown Los Angeles, exposing him to herpes.
Usher’s lawyer Zia Modabber told the outlet, ‘Usher will defend himself vigorously in court against these opportunistic claims.
Zia added ‘We will not comment further on private legal matters.’
Usher, through his legal team, has denied all accusations against him. He said he never had sex with any of his accusers.
Usher and Grace celebrated her two-year wedding anniversary in September.
