But Schuman admits that while "traumatized" she did perform alongside Carter after the alleged incident. Carter denied having nonconsensual sex with Schuman in a statement to Billboard. She says that Carter then forced her to have sex with him "against my will". According to Schuman, Carter performed oral sex on her without her consent and demanded she do it for him in return before he then forcibly initiated penetrative sex.

She writes her story in full here, but to summarise, she was contacted by Nick's management as he took a romantic interest in her and they spoke on the phone.

Carter said in a statement on Wednesday, "I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations". Melissa, now 33, recalls that Nick invited her to his apartment for a "casual hangout" and she brought along her roommate.

Schulman claims the Backstreet Boys singer took her into the bedroom and proceeded to rape her.

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

Owning A Dog Could Help You Live Longer (Especially If You're Single)
One man even credits his pal's dog with helping him see the light at the end of the tunnel during his darkest days of depression . This guy is fit because his dog is fit, you get me? But their risk of a heart attack was not reduced by owning a dog.

"He then pick me up, put me on the bathroom counter and started to unbutton my trousers. It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm", the Backstreet Boy said. "I said it over and over again".

She alleges that Carter told her that he could be her husband and then he allegedly raped her. She writes that she protested all of this, saying that she didn't want to go further.

"My first impression of him, he was kind and charismatic so when he asked if I'd like to hang out with him and his friend at his Santa Monica apartment on our off day of shooting, I said yes". "I didn't have the money, the clout or access to an attorney who was powerful enough to stand up against my abuser's legal counsel", she writes. "I was told I would likely be buried in humiliation, accused of being fame hungry, and it would ultimately hurt me professionally as well as publicly", she wrote. I asked him what it was and he whispered in my ear once more, 'It's all me baby.' It was done. The encounter "traumatized" her, she said.

Schuman was initially hesitant to come forward with her story even after the multitude of post-Harvey Weinstein public allegations. At this time, Carter has not responded to the allegations.

In the days that followed, Schuman says Carter would continue to call her and leave messages demanding she speak with him, but Schuman would not talk to him.
