Melissa Schuman Says Backstreet Boy Nick Carter Raped Her In 2002
Je. Sus. Christ.
Another day, another public figure accused of sexual assault and/or rape.
According to Dream singer Melissa Schuman’s personal blog, MelissaExplainsItAll, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter forcibly raped her at his Los Angeles apartment back in 2002. At the time of the alleged attack Schuman was 18 and Carter was 22.
After kissing for a moment, he took my hand and brought me into the bathroom adjacent to his office. He shut the door and we continued to kiss. I asked him what we were doing in there. He didn’t respond and continued to kiss me. He then pick me up, put me on the bathroom counter and started to unbutton my pants. I told him I didn’t want to go any further.
He didn’t listen.
He didn’t care.
He told me, “don’t worry. I won’t tell anybody.”
I told him thats not why I didn’t want to do it. He took off my pants anyway and then proceeded to perform oral sex on me. I told him to stop, but he didn’t. So I turned off the bathroom light so I wouldn’t see anything. He kept turning the light back on because he told me he wanted to look at me. I remember thinking at that point that maybe after this he will just stop, but he didn’t.
Schuman says Carter asked her to reciprocate the oral sex, but she declined. Then Carter allegedly took things an even more disturbing level.
I felt scared and trapped. He was visually and clearly growing very angry and impatient with me. I couldn’t leave. It was evident to me, that i couldn’t leave. He was stronger and much bigger than me, and there was no way I would be able to open that door or have anyone help me. My friend couldn’t help me, I didn’t even know where she was. 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. That’s where I saw myself, my reflection, watching myself do something that I was sicken by. Watching myself be assaulted, forced to engage in an act against my will.
Same as before his appetite was still not satisfied and now took me to the bedroom. It was late. The apartment was now dark and all you could hear was the remaining music in the living room. He threw me on the bed and climbed on top of me. Again, I told him that I was a virgin and I didn’t want to have sex. I told him that I was saving myself for my future husband. I said it over and over again. He whispered in my ear as to entice me,
“I could be your husband.”
He was relentless, refusing to take my no’s for an answer. He was heavy, too heavy to get out from under him. Then I felt it, he put something inside of me. I asked him what it was and he whispered in my ear once more,
“it’s all me baby.”
Melissa goes on to say that she spent weeks dodging Nick’s phone calls before she finally got a “nasty, angry voicemail”.
Sadly, Schuman’s engagement with Nick Carter wasn’t even over at that point. If you want to read the rest of the story you hit her blog HERE.
