A female vocalist is suing Nick Carter of the ‘Backstreet Boys’ because she says he gave her drugs and sexually abused her in his house. A woman named Melissa Schuman is suing the boy bander, according to new court papers obtained by The Blast. She says that he forced himself on her after giving her roofies.
The woman’s claim, which was filed in Los Angeles, tells a horrible story about the night she says Carter drugged her and raped her in his home. Schuman is known for being in the famous girl group DREAM, which was signed to P. Diddy’s label Bad Boy Records.
In 2003, the singer says she was hired in “The Hollow,” a horror movie for teens in which Nick Carter also had a part. Melissa and other cast and crew members were supposedly eating lunch on set when Carter invited her to hang out at his place and play video games.
Nick Carter Accused Of Giving Roofies To A Woman Before Sexual Assault
Schuman says that when she got to Nick’s house, he asked her if she wanted an alcoholic drink. She says that she told him, “She didn’t drink much, and she didn’t know what she wanted.” She said that the “Backstreet Boys” singer “started making drinks for everyone, and he suggested that she have a drink with cranberry juice.”
Melissa said at the time, “Defendant Carter put some form of flunitrazepam or a similar drug in (her) drink.” Flunitrazepam is also known informally as “roofie.” She says that Nick Carter once asked her to come hear a new song he was working on, and when she did, they kissed.
“At 18, she was self-conscious, scared, and sexually inexperienced; she had only kissed one other boy.” The claim says that Carter knew she was a virgin and that she had religious, conservative Christian views.
‘DREAM’ Singer Outlines Alleged Brutal Sexual Assault
“Against her will, Defendant Carter took (Melissa) to the bedroom, pushed her onto a twin bed, and climbed on top of her,” it says. She kept telling her NO! She told him over and over that she was a virgin, saving herself for her future husband, and didn’t want to have sex. Defendant Carter kept putting pressure on her and telling her that he might be her husband.
She couldn’t get away from him because he was too big. Defendant Carter forced (Melissa) into vaginal intercourse. She stopped moving and went limp. Once he was done, the defendant got out of bed. She then turned to the side and curled up into a foetal position.
“Even though she only had a little bit of alcohol, she passed out,” he says. Surprisingly, Schuman says that Carter sexually assaulted her and gave her the human papillomavirus, or HPV, which is a sexually transmitted disease with no fix at the moment.
HPV has been linked to a number of health problems, such as vaginal warts and cervical cancer. It’s important to note that Schuman’s accusations were first made public years ago, when she wrote about the incident on her own blog. “Carter has used the same pattern of sexual abuse with other young women and minors,” the lawsuit says.
‘Backstreet Boys’ Singer Nick Carter Accused Of Another Sexual Assault
This isn’t the first time Nick Carter has been sued for sexual abuse. Last year, a woman named Shannon “Shay” Ruth sued Carter. She said that Carter picked her out of a crowd of women asking for autographs after a show in Tacoma.
She says that he then pulled her onto the bus, gave her a boozy drink called “VIP juice,” and repeatedly hit her. Sources in the news say that in September 2018, prosecutors in Los Angeles chose not to charge Nick with sexual assault because the time limit had passed.
“Melissa Schuman has been telling this story for a long time, but her claim was false when she first made it in 2017 and it still is,” Nick’s lawyer said in response to the charges. A Nevada judge recently decided that Nick Carter has solid grounds to go forward with his lawsuit against Ms. Schuman for plotting to hurt, smear, and try to get money from Nick, his associates, friends, and family.
The judge made this decision after looking at the important evidence we provided. Given what we did in Nevada, this kind of response is both expected and sad. But this effort to get Nick’s attention won’t stop him from holding Ms. Schuman and her accomplices responsible for the pain and suffering that their extortionate behaviour has caused.
