Nick Carter has denied the rape accusations made against him by Melissa Schuman who was part of the early 2000s teen pop act Dream.
The former girl group member recently blogged about her alleged encounter with the Backstreet Boys star which happened in 2004.
"I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman's accusations," he told E! News.
The rest of his statement reads: "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."
