The Backstreet Boys Christmas special has been released after ABC’s Nick Carter allegations

A special TV Christmas show by the Backstreet Boys has been shut down over sexual assault allegations against singer Nick Carter.

The show entitled A very backstreet holiday, was scheduled to air December 14 on ABC. However, The Hollywood Reporter reports that the show has since been discontinued.

The Christmas special was set to include performances of the band’s latest album of the same name, which was released in October.

The decision to cancel the show comes after Carter was reportedly sued for sexually molesting a minor, an allegation he denies.

In a lawsuit filed Thursday, December 8, alleged victim Shannon Ruth alleged that Carter invited her onto the band’s tour bus when they played in Washington in 2001, according to US media reports.

Ruth, who says she is autistic and living with cerebral palsy, waived her right to anonymity and attended a news conference with her attorney Mark Boskovich in Beverly Hills on Thursday.

The lawsuit alleges Carter gave her “VIP juice” that tasted like alcohol. According to the files, Carter then asked her to perform oral sex on him before he raped her.

During the taping, Ruth, who claims to have contracted HPV after the incident, claimed that “the last 21 years have been filled with pain, confusion, frustration, shame and self-harm that are a direct result of Nick Carter raping me “.

“Even though I’m autistic and living with cerebral palsy, I don’t think anything has affected me more…than what Nick Carter did to me,” she said.

given in a statement The IndependentMichael Holtz, who is Carter’s attorney, strongly denies the allegations.

“This allegation about an incident that allegedly occurred more than 20 years ago is not only legally unfounded but also completely false,” the statement said.

“Unfortunately, for a number of years, Ms Ruth has been manipulated into making false allegations about Nick – and those allegations have repeated and materially varied over time.

The statement continued, “No one should be fooled by a press stunt orchestrated by an opportunistic lawyer – there is no truth to that allegation and we have no doubt the courts will be quick to recognize it.”

In 2017, Dream singer Melissa Schuman claimed Carter raped her when she was 18 and he was 22. The court case was dismissed in 2018 for exceeding the statute of limitations.
