Three women, Melissa Schuman, Shannon Ruth and Ashley Repp, are featured in the documentary speaking about their alleged assaults at the hands of the musician, throughout the early 2000s.

The pop world is in turmoil as Nick Carter, the heartthrob from the Backstreet Boys, confronts allegations that have sent shockwaves through his fanbase. 'Fallen Idols,' a docuseries that premiered this week in the US, casts a long shadow over Carter's glittering career, featuring accusations from the three ladies.

Carter's legal team has hit back hard, slamming the claims as "outrageous" and accusing the women of "spreading falsehoods."

In a defiant statement, they expressed confidence in prevailing against what they describe in a negative light. Carter, steadfast in his innocence, has launched a countersuit for defamation, labeling the allegations "legally meritless" and the accusers as opportunists.

"These are exactly the same outrageous claims that led us to sue this gang of conspirators," a statement from Carter’s attorney’s released to the 'Los Angeles Times' read.

"Those cases are working their way through the legal system now, and, based on both the initial court rulings and the overwhelming evidence, we have every belief that we will prevail and hold them accountable for spreading these falsehoods."

Shannon Ruth's lawsuit stands out, alleging a harrowing encounter with Carter in 2001, when she was just 17. Meanwhile, Melissa Schuman's and Ashley Repp's lawsuits recount their own disturbing experiences, painting a troubling picture of the pop star's past behavior.

Adding to the drama, the documentary delves into the strained relationship between Nick and his late brother, Aaron Carter, who had publicly supported Nick's accusers before his untimely death in November 2022.

The series not only explores the legal battles but also sheds light on Aaron's mental health struggles, adding a layer of tragedy to the tale.
