Nick Carter Countersues R*pe Accusers

Lyndon Abioye |

Nick Carter has filed countersuits against two women who accused him of rape.

A countersuit was filed against Shannon Ruth, who sued him in December for alleged sexual battery. Melissa Schuman, a former teen pop singer with the girl group Dream, also accused him of rape in 2017…he’s suing her too.

According to the lawsuit, the accusers plotted to “defame and vilify Carter and otherwise ruin his reputation for the purposes of garnering attention and fame and/or extorting money from Carter.”

The suit also alleges that Schuman took advantage of his late brother Aaron Carter.

“The Schumans’ timing couldn’t have been better since, at the time, Aaron was addicted to drugs, battling serious mental health issues, and engaged in a misguided campaign of retaliation against Carter and other members of his family who were worried about Aaron and pushing him to seek professional help,” according to the suit. “Schuman, Jerome, and Ruth exploited Aaron’s fragile condition and family stresses to cloak their defamatory campaign with credibility, relentlessly and repeatedly using Aaron to try to legitimize their frivolous tales.”

Nick Carter denies all allegations against him.
