Nick Carter is denying he raped former DREAM singer Melissa Schuman and claims they only had consensual sex

It was during this time that Carter took Schuman into a bathroom and initiated kissing her. Schuman made her allegation in a blog post published on November 18. Carter lured her into a room saying that he was going to share with some new music, and he gave her alcohol.

She then says that, despite her repeatedly telling him she didn't want to have sex, he took her into his bedroom and pentratively raped her.

Schuman then says they didn't interact until a year later on the set of the film.

"Writing on her blog, she said: "'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". I know it's scary.

'I told him that I was a virgin and I didn't want to have sex.

Schuman immediately told her manager and attempted to press charges, but was told she "would likely be buried in humiliation, accused of being fame hungry, and it would ultimately hurt me professionally as well as publicly".

At this point in the post, Melissa warns readers that the detail becomes quite graphic, writing: "He then picked me up, put me on the bathroom counter and started to unbutton my trousers".

She said Carter called for weeks after. Again, I told him that I was a virgin and I didn't want to have sex.

Schuman writes that she told Carter that she was saving herself for her future husband.

Melissa Schuman is a 33-year-old singer from California. I couldn't leave. 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.

She eventually left his apartment and avoided contact, but Nick continued to try and get in touch with her. "I won't tell anybody". "I couldn't tell my manager that his best friend had raped me so I won't record this song", Schuman writes.

After withdrawing from her friends in the wake of the assault and dodging her abuser's calls, Melissa attempted to put the incident behind her, but was thrown back into a situation with her abuser.

The victim in the above article remains unnamed and I can't blame her. "I won't tell anybody." . Thank you for providing me a safe place to be open and vulnerable.

"She devastatingly ended her statement with "#MeToo" - reminding us all of all the hundreds of high profile cases that have come up in the last couple of months.

"I believe you. I stand with you and together I hope we can bring light to things that have been lost in the darkness for so long". The former "Dancing With the Stars" contestant has been married to Lauren Kitt since 2014, according to Entertainment Tonight.
