The man suing Usher for allegedly exposing him to herpes has dropped his request for the singer to turn over his medical records, according to reports in the US.
The John Doe claims that Usher – full name Usher Raymond IV – exposed him to herpes during a supposed sexual encounter at an LA spa.
But it’s reported that he’s now dropped his request for the Yeah! singer to hand over his medical records.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast , the anonymous man is withdrawing his motion to compel, which would have sought to have Usher turn over doctors’ records and information on any possible past cases or settlements over herpes.

The court docs note that the man could bring the motion again but that for now, he will continue with "further discovery".
Earlier this year, the unnamed man demanded the judge order Usher to hand over the information and documents, including his confidential medical history and possible settlements from the past.
The man claimed that Usher refused to hand over the information and tried to invoke attorney-client privilege and physician-patient privilege, meaning he wouldn’t have to hand over the records.
And the singer allegedly refused to answer questions on whether he had settled claims by former lovers over herpes in the past.

But the John Doe aruged it wasn’t right as it had been "widely reported that Defendant has settled similar claims through the years".
Last year, a woman named Quantasia Sharpton, as well as a Jane Doe and a John Doe, sued the singer, claiming they had all had sexual relations with Usher.
They all claimed he risked their health by not telling them about his alleged diagnosis, and were seeking unspecified damages.
The new John Doe claims he had sex with Usher at a Koreatown spa in LA.
The case is ongoing.
