Nick Carter Never Heard Melissa Schuman Say “I Want It That Way” Before He Allegedly Raped Her

Nick Carter is probably the most famous Backstreet Boy. He’s not on the level of the most famous person in NSYNC, but he’s right there with the most famous person in 98 Degrees.

Anyway, he’s now been accused of sexual assault. Add him to the list.

His accuser is one Melissa Schuman of the girl group Dream. They’re all less famous than the least famous Spice Girl.

Schuman writes in her blog, which is awesomely titled “Melissa Explains It All”, that Carter raped her when she was 19 and he was 22.

Schuman went over to Carter’s apartment as part of a small gathering and the two started to kiss. Seems innocent enough. The former Dream singer makes it clear in the post that she was a virgin and everyone in the industry knew she was a virgin.

After some kissing, things take a turn for the worst.

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.”

Nothing good ever starts with, “He didn’t listen. He didn’t care.” But maybe this one will turn out different?

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.

I guess he was unselfish in his rape? Yeah, I got nothing.

He then took off his pants. I will never forget this moment. There was a bathroom nightlight so although it was dark, it was dimly lit enough for me to see myself in the bathroom mirror. He sat himself on the bathroom counter and asked me to perform oral sex on him. I declined, he was upset. He told me,

“I did it for you and it’s only right you do it for me.”

Oh, never mind. He just ruined all of his goodwill by asking her to return the favor. Yes, that’s common courtesy. No, that rule doesn’t apply to rape.

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.”

So, yeah, that’s not good.

Schuman goes on to say that she avoided Carter, who constantly called her, until she ended up signing with Carter’s manager, Kenneth Crear.

Schuman ended up singing a duet with Carter at a showcase, which seemed to go well. Until, as Schuman explained, Carter got in Crear’s ear, took the song for himself, and basically told Crear to drop Schuman as an artist.

I never did another showcase again after that and I quickly lost interest in pursuing a career as a recording artist.

I was broken.

I was tired.

I was traumatized.

She ends her blog post by speaking out against victim shaming and drops a really good line.

Let me ask this simple question. Who the hell wants to be famous for being raped?

And now, you’ll never listen to “I Want It That Way” again.
