Nick Carter Under Review by District Attorney for Sexual Assault Claim

Nick Carter has denied the allegation

Nick has denied that he ever raped the woman, saying their sexual encounters were always consensual.

The alleged victim was not named, but in February, Melissa Schuman tweeted she had filed a police report.

A sex assault case involving Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter is under review by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.

Schuman, an actress and singer, claimed in a blog post that when she and the boy band member were working together on the movie The Hollow, they were at his apartment on an off day, where he performed oral sex on her against her will, pressured her to do the same for him, and then raped her.

Multiple claims made against the Hollywood producer late previous year sparked the worldwide #MeToo movement.

The 34-year-old claimed he then began to unbutton her pants and ignored her objections before allegedly performing oral sex on her.

Even in the face of oftentimes intense public scrutiny, Eugenie has a very important public event in the near future - her wedding to Jack Brooksbank .

At the time, Carter said in a statement, "I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations". Then she said though she repeatedly told him she did not want to have sex, he pinned her down in a bedroom and raped her. Schuman said she felt trapped because Carter was bigger than her.

However, when another alleged victim accused Nick Carter of assault in October 2017, Schuman said she believed it was her "responsibility" to share her story. This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, almost two decades later.

"It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm", he continued.

'My hope is that my experience further highlights the urgent need for open dialogue and education about consent and sexual assault.

Sky News has contacted Nick Carter's manager for comment.
