Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter accused of raping 15-year-old girl multiple times in a cabin and on a yacht

A recently filed lawsuit accuses Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl more multiple times, 8NewsNow reported.

The lawsuit, filed in Nevada, says Carter sexually assaulted the then-15-year-old girl more than once back in 2003. The now-adult, only identified as “A.R.,” accuses Carter of raping her in his bedroom on a yacht. In other alleged incidents, Carter sexually assaulted the girl on a bus and then again on a boat.

The lawsuit also claims Carter “knowingly provided alcohol and drugs to then-minor A.R. on this occasion and caused her to become intoxicated on his yacht.”

Even though the then-teen told her mother about the incidents — who then contacted police in Pennsylvania — Carter was never charged.

From 8NewsNow:

The lawsuit lists sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress as causes of action.

A lawsuit filed last December alleges Carter raped Shannon “Shay” Ruth when she was 17. Ruth alleges Carter, who was 21 at the time, gave her alcohol, raped her, and threatened her if she told anyone, documents said.

In February of 2001, Ruth was invited onto a tour bus in Tacoma, Washington by Carter while she was waiting in line for an autograph. On the bus, Carter gave her cranberry juice with alcohol and said it was “VIP juice” after Ruth told him the drink tasted weird, according to the lawsuit.

After Ruth drank the juice, the lawsuit said, Carter took her to the bathroom of the tour bus and assaulted her. He became irritated when Ruth got upset, asking her “Why are you crying?! Stop crying,” according to the lawsuit. Carter then took Ruth to the back of the tour bus and raped her, the lawsuit said.

Singer Melissa Schuman also made accusations against Carter, saying he raped her in 2003. The statute of limitations ran out before she was able to file charges. Carter has denied the allegation.
