Nick Carter Denies Rape Allegation From Singer Melissa Schuman

Schuman, then 18 and a member of girl group Dream, alleges Carter performed oral sex on her and got "upset" when she declined to reciprocate. I couldn't leave. So when he placed my hand on his penis my thought was the only way to get out was to get him to finish what he had started. The singer said she did not talk about the assault earlier because her manager told her that Carter had the "most powerful litigator in the country".

"I just want to thank everyone for the outpouring of love and support", she tweeted on Monday. "I won't tell anybody'".

"This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, almost two decades later", he added.

It took her 15 years to tell her story of assault and it's a classic scenario of a man not understanding the meaning of the word "no". In a statement issued to CNN, he said: "Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual".

Both Melissa and Nick were cast in the same TV movie show in 2002 and during an off-shooting day, he invited her to come over his place to hang out with his friend.

"It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm", he said in the statement. "I have a plethora of people who can attest that I eventually became open vocal about my experience, I've just never had the platform to come out publicly", stated Melissa. I'm scared. I believe you.

Melissa also claimed that after the incident, Nick kept calling her but she refused to pick up his calls, after which he sent her a "nasty, angry" message and stopped calling. She says she feels "an obligation now to come forward with the hope and intention to inspire and encourage other victims to tell their story".

She wrote on her blog in a November 2 post titled "Melissa Explains It All" that she had chose to come forward after women made accusations against other prominent men in entertainment and politics, and the #MeToo social media movement.

After a hiatus, the Backstreet Boys are now performing together and have a show in Las Vegas.

"He was aware that I was a virgin and that I held to religious conservative christian values", she writes in the post. I told my therapist.
