Nick Carter, the 90's heartthrob from the popular boy-band group, Backstreet Boys, is being accused of raping a fellow pop singer, Melissa Schuman.

"I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations", Carter said in a statement to Vanity Fair. This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, almost two decades later.

"It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm", he said in the statement.

"He whispered in my ear as if to entice me "I could be your future husband".

After allegedly forcing her to perform oral sex on him too, she said he then took her into his bedroom and raped her, despite her pleas.

"He took off my trousers anyway and then proceeded to perform oral sex on me", writes Schuman. "I won't tell anybody, '" she wrote.

Schuman wrote a graphic account of the alleged incident. But she says she found the courage to do so after discovering a Radar Online article detailing another woman's sexual assault allegation against Carter. She writes that she has "religious conservative Christian values" and it was widely known at the time that she was a virgin.

"I could tell by his tone that he was no longer interested in working for me and I couldn't help but wonder if Nick had any influence in it", Schuman said.

They were both coincidentally cast in the same film a few years later, 2004's The Hollow, when Carter violated her.

"I feel I have an obligation now to come forward with the hope and intention to inspire and encourage other victims to tell their story".

According to a report, Schuman alleges that the boy band star forced her to perform oral sex on him before raping her inside his Los Angeles apartment.

She said she felt "scared and trapped".

Shuman shared her gratitude to those who reached out to her with support on Twitter Monday.

The musician said she was preparing to come forward and press charges against Carter, but was advised against it by her then-manager, as Carter "had the most powerful litigator in the country". "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. We are stronger in numbers.

In the following weeks, Carter repeatedly called her, and after receiving no answer, Schulman says he left her "one last nasty, angry message". "Everyone knew about this, including those who repped me".
