Who is Melissa Schuman?

Melissa Schuman is a 39-year-old singer from California. She is best known for her time in the girl group Dream.

She is married to dancer Brandon Henschel, after the couple tied the knot in June 2006.

What are Melissa Schuman’s rape allegations against Nick Carter?

Melissa Schuman – a former singer in the girl group Dream – has accused Nick of raping her in his apartment in 2002.

At the time, Melissa was 18 and Nick was 22, and she claims he performed unwanted oral sex on her before demanding that she carry out oral sex on him in his bathroom.

Writing on her blog, she said: “He was stronger and much bigger than me, and there was no way I would be able to open that door or have anyone help me.”

She then alleges he threw her on the bed and raped her, despite her crying out for him to stop. Melissa also stated that she was a virgin and saving herself for when she was married.

The pair later worked together on the 2004 teen horror movie The Hollow.

Nick responded to the allegations in a 2017 statement saying: “Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.

“This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, nearly two decades later.

“It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”
