Nick Carter is resisting versus allegations of sexual attack.
OnFeb 2, the Backstreet Boys member submitted a countersuit versus Shannon “Shay” Ruth after she sued him in December for declared sexual battery. He is likewise taking legal action against Melissa Schuman, a previous teenager pop vocalist with the lady group Dream, who implicated him of rape in 2017.
In court files gotten by E! News, Carter’s lawyer implicated both Ruth and Schuman of attempting to “harass, defame and extort” his customer.
The countersuit declares the 2 ladies benefited from the #MeToo motion and utilized it to release a five-year conspiracy to “defame and vilify Carter and otherwise ruin his reputation for the purposes of garnering attention and fame and/or extorting money from Carter.”
The filing likewise called Schuman and Ruth “opportunists,” declaring that they were set out to “destroy innocent lives” and triggered more than $2.3 million in company losses.
