Some more troubling news out of the entertainment world today after Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter has been accused of rape.
Carter, who’s family is no stranger to trouble, allegedly raped Melissa Schuman of the girl pop group ‘Dream’.
Schuman took to her personal blog where she recounted the evening:
Carter and Schuman were both cast members for a 2004 made-for-TV movie The Hollow when 22-year-old Carter invited Schuman, 18 at the time, and her friend to his Santa Monica apartment for a “casual hangout.”
“That evening my friend and I arrived to a barely furnished apartment,” she wrote in her personal blog. “No dining room furniture, No living room furniture. Just a TV and a game console which both the guys were playing on.”
They started drinking, and Carter asked her to listen to some of his new music in his office. They started kissing when he put her on the bathroom counter and started to take off her pants.
“I told him I didn’t want to go any further,” Schuman wrote. “He didn’t listen.”
He took off her pants and performed oral sex on her, she writes. She says she told him to stop, but he didn’t. Then Carter asked her to perform oral sex on him.
The boy band singer then took her into the bedroom. Schuman said she told Carter she was saving herself for her future husband.
“I could be your husband,” Carter allegedly responded.
That is when, Schuman said, he raped her.
“I went limp, turned my head to my left and decided I would just go to sleep now,” she wrote. “I wanted to believe it was some sort of nightmare I was dreaming up.”
Melissa Schuman was among the girls in Puff Daddy’s first ‘pop’ band ‘Dream’ and had multiple hits on their debut album ‘It Was All a Dream’.
