A lot of stars with the kind of money Usher has would just pay out to stop this story.

After all, now four different people are suing the singer for exposing them to herpes — not something that's going to be good for his image whether they're telling the truth or not!

But Usher would rather fight.

According to TMZ's sources there have been absolutely no settlement talks, and quiet payouts are off the table. That may change as the cost of simultaneous legal battles goes through the roof, but for the moment Usher is sticking to his story — and plans to prove it in court.

Is Usher doing the right thing? Maybe so — if he really is innocent.

What do YOU think, Perezcious readers??

Innocent until proven guilty!

We're sure that's what Usher has been telling himself ever since this herpes scandal hit the press. As you've likely heard, the Yeah! singer has been named in a number of lawsuits as he allegedly exposed several sexual partners to genital herpes without disclosing his supposed sexual condition.

One of the alleged victims, named Quantasia Sharpton, has since come forward and given a press conference about her past liaison with the hitmaker.

With new claimants coming out of the woodwork, Usher may well lose some of these lawsuits and have to pay out millions for exposing women to herpes.

But hey, that's what insurance is for, right?

Um, yeah, not so much in this case.

According to TMZ, the New York Marine and General Insurance Company has already sent legal notice to the singer letting him know his policy does not include coverage for "bodily injury … arising out of the transmission of any communicable diseases by [Usher]."

So if he has to pay $20 mil, that's going to be Usher's $20 mil. And if he loses, he'll also have to pay the company back for any legal fees they covered.

With more and more lawsuits popping up, even a pop star with as much money as Usher could go broke. Ouch.

And in case you missed our coverage of Lisa Bloom's press conference with complainant Quantasia Sharpton today, the celeb lawyer revealed one of her three clients (not Sharpton) has tested positive for herpes. Usher has not confirmed whether or not he has the disease.
