Nick Carter Is Being Sued For Sexual Battery For An Incident That Happened During 2001 Backstreet Boys Tour

Nick Carter has been in the news lately due to the death of his brother, Aaron Carter. And while he received lots of love and sympathy in the days following, the support may soon come to an end.

It’s being reported by TMZ that a woman named Shannon Ruth is suing the 42-year-old singer for sexual battery.

According to the report, Ruth claims that when she was 17-years-old, Nick Carter (who would have been 21 at the time) invited her to the tour bus after a Backstreet Boys concert. Ruth suffers from cerebral palsy and autism, but it’s unclear if Nick knew this at the time.

Once on the bus, Ruth says Nick offered her a drink. She claims she asked for apple juice. Nick said he had cranberry juice and then handed her a “red-colored” drink. She remembers the drink tasting off, but Nick told her it was “VIP juice” so she drank it, not wanting to be rude.
