Melissa Schuman from girl group, DREAM, recently came out in her blog post about Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys raping her when she was 18 and he was 22. She did an interview with Dr. Oz about it and sneak peeks have been released. She said that she was trying to surpress what happened to her, but the Harvey Weinstein allegations brought what happened to her back. She didn't want to be the whistleblower about Nick, but her friend told her that if there's anytime to come out about it, it's now. She told her manager about being raped by Nick and wanted to press charges, but he told her that the Backstreet Boys have the most powerful litigator in the world and that she didn't have the money or lawyers to do it.
Ill post a video this weekend about my thoughts and feels on @nickcarter and the accusations, but until then... ill just leave this right here. Please know your facts before stating your opinion. https://t.co/ljPrJyp6vX— Sharna Burgess (@SharnaBurgess) December 2, 2017
Part 1. These are only my thoughts, this is not victim shaming, y’all know me and I would never. Just because I support Nick, doesn’t mean I don’t support female empowerment or #metoo. They are both movements that I am a part of, here for and proud of. pic.twitter.com/J8Gz7dczhv— Sharna Burgess (@SharnaBurgess) December 3, 2017
Nick's partner on season 21 of Dancing with the Stars, Sharna Burgess, posted several tweets supporting him today. She linked to "facts" from a Backstreet Boys fan page that basically say Melissa's accusations are questionable because she has said positive things about him on social media before. She also posted videos about how Nick was the "kindest and most respectable" person to her and the entire DWTS cast and crew.

Wtf Sharna he might have been nice to you in 2015, but you weren't there with Melissa and Nick in 2002! It's terrible how so many BSB stans are coming at Melissa and calling her a liar just because the "facts" show that he couldn't have raped her because she said positive things about him on social media. The facts also show that Nick was arrested for a drunk bar fight, gave Paris Hilton multiple bruises, and was on camera being very angry and putting his hands on Aaron...
