Melissa Schuman, a member of the early 2000's girl group DREAM said Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys raped her back in 2002. She described the incident in a very graphic blog post on Tuesday.
Nick Carter has come forward claiming the sex was consensual. In a statement reported by TMZ, Nick says:
I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s accusations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.
