Anyone in a boyband is presumed to be an undercover homosexual until proven otherwise. Justin Timberlake so far is the only guy to provide sufficient evidence of being a heterosexual even after breaking out in song and dance along side a group of men with blond highlights. So when Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys was accused of raping a woman I was confused and almost certain Melissa Schuman was barking up the wrong tree when it came to find a man to blame. Nick Carter is the founding father of zesty behavior so an accusation claiming he had forced intercourse with an actual vagina is puzzling. We’re all aware Nick having kids is a cover up. Even AJ McLean is calling BS because anyone with a single entitled Do I Have To Cry For You is a backdoor bandit.
AJ McLean is standing firm with his Backstreet bro, saying there is no way Nick Carter raped anyone … and although he generally supports accusers … he just can’t in Nick’s case.
We got AJ at LAX Monday and he insisted Dream singer Melissa Schuman’s claim Nick raped her in 2002 had to be bogus. Others have defended Carter, like his “Dancing with the Stars” partner, Sharna Burgess.
But, AJ has a long history with Nick — back to their pre-teen days — and says his groupmate just isn’t that kinda guy.
On Melissa forgiving Nick:
Melissa Schuman says she forgives Nick Carter, who she has accused of rape.
Carter, who is 37 and was 22 at the time of the alleged incident, denied the allegations, saying, “Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual.”
“I forgive you,” she said. “That I don’t want anything from you. I wish you only the best. I don’t want your money. I didn’t do this to hurt you or your family. I did this for me, because I needed this healing.”
“And I also came forward because I want to inspire other victims, other people who have been assaulted, to come forward and know that they have a voice.”
“I’d actually confided in my manager at that time about pressing charges and I was told that he had the most powerful litigator in the country and that I didn’t have the money to pay for an attorney to essentially defend me, if he were to come after me,” she told Oz. “And then he was also just like, you know, ‘You’re trying to build a name for yourself right now, everyone’s gonna call you ‘fame-hungry,’ that you’re trying to use this to better yourself or get your name out there and at this point, there’s nothing we can do.’ And I remember telling him, ‘Oh, so that’s it? Like, he just gets away with it?'”Carter has not responded to Schuman’s recent remarks.
AJ’s choice of words to defend Nick all highlight the singer’s preference for dudes. “No way Nick Carter raped anyone,””Melissa Schuman’s claim had to be bogus,””his groupmate isn’t that kind of guy.” Those statements are pretty definite, almost as if he knows something the rest of us don’t. But on another note the attack on male celebrities is getting ridiculous. How do you pin blame on someone for something so long ago, say you don’t want anything other than attention and to destroy a man’s legacy, then offer forgiveness for something the accused still claims never happened. Amazing. Time to cry rape when the career you would do anything for never took off.
