“Carter tried to scare me into silence by saying no one would believe me if I told what happened. He was nasty and threatening, saying I was going to jail if I told. He also said he’d turn people against me because he was Nick Carter and he had the power to wreck my life. Carter took away my childhood and my innocence, but he cannot and will not take away my strength or my truth. I am a survivor and always will be.”

Nick Carter’s Lawyer

As expected, Nick Carter’s lawyer has came out in full defense of his client and said that this allegation is completely false and fabricated.

“Unfortunately, for several years now, Ms. Ruth has been manipulated into making false allegations against Nick, and those allegations have changed repeatedly and materially over time. No one should be fooled by a press stunt orchestrated by an opportunistic lawyer. There is nothing to this claim whatsoever, which we have no doubt the courts will quickly realize.”

Well that remains to be seen. Though ABC initially had promised their audience an unforgettable experience, but after the suspension of the show this doesn’t seem to be happening anytime soon.

Initially the show had promised that Backstreet boys will bring new songs from the forthcoming holiday album and some old hits as well. It was supposed to go live on the 14th of December and had a scheduled re-run on the 20th of December but after this fiasco, the future of this show seems bleak.
