Nick Carter's Responds To Melissa Schuman's Sexual Assault Allegations: "I Am Shocked"


On Nov. 21, sexual assault allegations were made against Backstreet Boy member Nick Carter. Melissa Schuman, who was part of the pop girl group DREAM, thoroughly documented an experience with Carter that allegedly occurred when she was 18 years old. Now, Nick Carter's response to Melissa Schuman's sexual assault allegations is making the rounds to the public.

He said in a statement to Elite Daily,

The accusations against Carter come as part of a long list of men who are being accused of abuse and assault in Hollywood. Schuman even explains that she decided she would come forward with her story if she ever heard of another alleged victim of Carter.

Her essay is long and graphic, which is something she warns readers about from the beginning.

After describing how she was first introduced to Carter through her label and attended a house party at his home, Schuman claims,

Schuman claims Carter first invited her into his home office to listen to music, and then forced her into a bathroom. She claims,

Next, Schuman alleges Carter performed oral sex on her, and then pressured her to do the same. She claims he said, "I did it for you and it's only right you do it for me."

Schuman goes on to claim that Carter eventually took her into a bedroom and forced himself upon her.

After that night, Schuman claims she tried to tell people about the alleged incident, but ultimately Carter had too strong of legal representation and she felt her career would be in jeopardy.

At the beginning of her post, Schuman writes,

Through a series of events, Schuman says she eventually signed with Carter's manager, Kenneth Crear, who helped organize a duet between the two singers. She says,

It was her first encounter with Carter since the alleged incident, and Schuman claims he was clearly frustrated and upset after their performance. Schuman claims that after the duet, she was unable to get a hold of Crear.

Elite Daily reached out to Crear's team for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication. The series of events ultimately led Schuman to lose interest in her career as a recording artist.

She concluded her blog post with,
