An actress, and singer Melissa Schuman, who is best known for the all-girl teen band Dream, claimed on Tuesday that the musician Nick Carter raped her in 2002 when she was 18.
The 33-year-old Melissa shared a lengthy post on her personal blog where she wrote that she first interacted with the Backstreet Boys singer when their representative suggested they date.
The former pop star, who had a boyfriend at the time, said she took the call “out of respect.”
A few years later, the duo was shooting the 2004 made-for-TV movie The Hollow when Nick invited Melissa and her friend to his Santa Monica apartment for a "casual hangout,".

After a few shots, Nick took Melissa into an office, where he played some of his music for her before starting making out, she wrote.
Melissa detailed the incident saying Nick alleged attack, took her into a bathroom and started kissing her before he lifted her onto the counter and tried to unbutton her pants.
Melissa, who was virgin at the time, says she told him to stop. She wrote;
He told me, ‘don’t worry. I won’t tell anybody,
Nick didn’t listen to her and instead, he took off Melissa’s pants and started performing oral sex.
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,
She further added;
I remember thinking at that point that maybe after this he will just stop, but he didn’t.
When someone knocked on the bathroom door, Melissa said Nick took her into another bathroom, then demanded her to perform oral sex on him.
She claims when she refused, he said;
I did it for you and it’s only right you do it for me.
