Yesterday, we reported that former DREAM singer Melissa Schuman accused Nick Carter of sexually assaulting and raping her in 2002 when he was twenty-two and she was eighteen. At the time, she thought they were just going to have a “casual hangout” at his Santa Monica apartment. TMZ reports that Carter has officially denied these claims, saying they only had consensual sex.

He said: “I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s accusations. 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.
