Melissa Schuman and Nick Carter in 2016 and 2017, respectively. "I stand with you and together I hope we can bring light to things that have been lost in the darkness for so long". There, she claims that, after the two of them kissed, Carter forcibly performed oral sex on her, though she told him to stop, and then demanded oral sex from her.

Schuman said she was in Carter's house with a friend.

She wrote on her blog in a November 2 post titled Melissa Explains It All that she had chose to come forward after women made accusations against other prominent men in entertainment and politics, and the #MeToo social media movement.

Carter said in a statement on Wednesday, "I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations".

Melissa Schuman was part of the 2000s band, Dream, and in a recent post goes into great detail about the boy band star and how in just one night her life changed forever. Schuman alleged that Carter later took her into the bedroom, where he "threw" her on the bed and climbed on top of her.

Carter continued, 'This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, almost two decades later. As the evening progressed, Carter invited Schuman to his office to listen to new music, and "naturally we started to kiss".

"I can't help but feel empathy for her as well as sicken (ed) by the lack of belief and support". "It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm", the Backstreet Boy said. "I told him to stop, but he didn't. I was told I would likely be buried in humiliation, accused of being fame hungry, and it would ultimately hurt me professionally as well as publicly", she wrote.

"He whispered in my ear as to entice me, "I could be your husband", she wrote. "I was traumatized", she wrote.

Carter, now 37, has not yet commented on the allegations. The encounter "traumatized" her, she said.

Schuman tweeted out her story, in solidarity with the #MeToo movement.

She says she later told people in her personal life - including her therapist, her family and friends - but made a decision to speak out publicly when she saw a RadarOnline article last month about Nick being investigated for sexual assault in 2006.

Then the former boybander, who was raised in Ruskin, near Tampa, allegedly penetrated her.

Schuman said she kept the incident a secret from the public for years but felt moved to come forward with her story after dozens of victims of sexual assault came forward to accuse other public figures.
