The Allegations That Rocked the Carters

In a story that reads like a Hollywood thriller, Melissa Schuman, Ashley Repp, and Shannon “Shay” Ruth bravely step forward with allegations that could tarnish the golden image of Nick Carter. Schuman's recount of an alleged sexual assault in 2003, after a "casual hangout" turned nightmarish, paints a chilling picture of a star's dark side.

"Why did you make me do that?" a text from Nick to Schuman the day after, only adds to the mystery and horror.

The Carter family, once seen as the epitome of American success, is revealed to be riddled with tragedy. The untimely deaths of Leslie, Aaron, and Bobbie Jean Carter expose a family battling demons, with the docuseries suggesting a link between fame, pressure, and personal downfall.

Schuman recounted her alleged rape by Nick in 2003. At the time, the two were filming the TV movie 'The Hollow.' According to Schuman, he invited her and a friend over to his apartment for a "casual hangout" in Santa Monica. Schuman claimed that Nick took her into a bathroom, where he began to forcibly perform oral sex on her.

"He continues to kiss me and then he puts me up on the counter. I can feel him unbuttoning my pants and I stop him and tell him, ‘I don’t want to go any further,’" Schuman said. "But he did not listen to me, despite the fact that I resisted and told him no. He started to perform oral sex on me, which was horrific."

She added, "I turned off the light so I didn’t have to see it, see him, see any of it. He kept turning it back on and telling me he wanted to look at me, which was even more humiliating and gross. I don’t even know how long it went on for."

Not the only one

Schuman alleged that Nick forced her to reciprocate, saying, "He pulls off his pants and puts himself on the counter and says, ‘Now do it to me.’"

Kaya Jones, a former Pussycat Doll and Nick's ex-girlfriend, emerges as an unexpected ally to Schuman, sharing her own reasons for believing the allegations. Jones's support, alongside Aaron Carter's public backing of Nick's accusers, highlights a complex web of relationships and loyalties within the music industry.

Aaron Carter's decision to support the women accusing his brother ignites a family feud, with Aaron facing cyber attacks and harassment. The involvement of a private investigator and the suspicious actions of Nick's wife, Lauren Kitt Carter, add layers of intrigue and suspicion to an already convoluted narrative.
