Schuman said Carter, 22 at the time, was aware she was a virgin with conservative Christian values but still continued to perform oral sex on her in the bathroom.

"I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations", Nick said in a statement sent to the press.

The popular singer has received, on Wednesday afternoon, a statement to Buzzfeed News in which he argues that the "Schuman has never indicated that it was not consensual" and that "it was the first time he heard about these accusations". "It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm." reported US Weekly.

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. "I still didn't tell anyone". "I am free now", she said. She also disclosed that he then took her to his bedroom and forced himself on her. "I told him that I was saving myself for my future husband".

The star then claims 37-year-old Nick performed oral sex on her without her consent, and then told her: "I did it for you and it's only right you do it for me".

Nick Carter, a member of the boyband Backstreet Boys, has been accused of rape. I asked him what it was and he whispered in my ear once more, 'It's all me, baby.' It was done. She repeated that she was a virgin who was saving herself for marriage, to which she said he replied: "I could be your husband". I went limp, turned my head to my left and decided I would just go to sleep now.

Melissa added that she hadn't told her friend about the incident but had informed her then manager, who warned her that Nick has a powerful legal team and saying something would only ruin her career.

We're expecting a longer list to come out, especially now that women are braver to share their story, because strength can sometimes come in numbers.

She explained she considered pressing charges against the Backstreet Boys star, but was told that she would "be buried in humiliation" and "accused of being fame hungry". "She is going to be the flawless person to help me because I don't know everything, but I know her intelligence, her just heart, her love and her compassion".
