Shock allegations surround Paris Hilton and ex Nick Carter

Former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, 44, and his pop star brother Aaron Carter — who died at age 34 in 2022 from accidental drug-related causes — are the subjects of a new batch of documents, reports the New York Post.

Fallen Idols: Nick and Aaron Carter aired in the US this week with the four-part series exploring the rise of the famous brothers, their relationship, Aaron’s struggles with substance abuse and mental health, and the sexual assault allegations against Nick by Melissa Schuman, Ashley Repp and Shannon “Shay” Ruth.

In the doc, journalist Scaachi Koul also revisits shocking claims that circulated in 2004 about Paris Hilton telling her friends that her ex-boyfriend Nick had beaten her.

An on-screen note states that Nick refused to participate in the documentary and that he has “denied the allegations and questioned the credibility of his accusers.”

Stream Fallen Idols: Nick and Aaron Carter June 7 on BINGE, available on Hubbl.

“These are exactly the same outrageous allegations that led us to expose this gang of conspirators,” Nick’s attorney, Dale Hayes Jr., said in a separate statement.

“These cases are making their way through the legal system now, and based on both the courts’ initial rulings and the overwhelming evidence, we firmly believe that we will prevail and hold them accountable for spreading these falsehoods.”

Here are the biggest revelations from the docu-series presented by Investigation Discovery, which will air locally on Foxtel, BINGE and Fetch from 7 June.

Nick allegedly hit Paris Hilton

Nick and Paris Hilton, 43, were romantically linked in 2004.

In the doc series, journalist Scaachi Koul said: “This is a 2004 story about Paris Hilton allegedly telling her friends that her ex-boyfriend Nick had beaten her. There are photos of her with a swollen lip and bruises on her arms.

He added: “Nick Carter says he didn’t do it. There’s no real sequel and generally the stories end with Nick’s point of view on it.”

Hilton never publicly accused Nick, but he denied the allegations, telling MTV News in 2004: “If they need media attention, let them do their thing. My family, friends and fans know that this is not my character and I would never hurt someone I care about or do anything close to the malicious things they say.

The Post has reached out to Hilton for comment.

Nick’s text message

Melissa Schuman, 39, tearfully recalls on screen how Nick allegedly raped her in 2003. She says that following those harrowing events she received a text message from Nick that allegedly said: “Why did you make me do this?”

“That text message scared me,” he says in the documentary.

“I confided in my manager to go to the police and report the (alleged) crime. He told me, ‘[Nick] has the most powerful litigator in the country,’” warning her that coming forward would destroy her career.

In an on-screen statement, Schuman’s previous manager denied having told him about the alleged rape.

Schuman also said she was harassed and harassed online so much by Nick’s fans that she called a suicide hotline.

In a statement to Page Six in 2017, Nick said: “I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s allegations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we had done was not consensual. We continued to record a song and perform together, and I have always been respectful and supportive of Melissa on both a personal and professional level.

“This is the first time I have heard of these allegations, almost two decades later. It is against my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause distress or harm to anyone.

Nick’s ex-girlfriend supports his accusers

Kaya Jones, 39, a former member of the Pussycat Dolls who was romantically linked to Nick, appeared in the documentary to say she saw the situation with Schuman as: “A young woman trying to speak out and someone who thought she had more power and the authorities try to silence her.

He recalled meeting the Everyone (Backstreet’s Back) singer in 2004 and moved in with him after just four days together.

“It was a very quick relationship,” he said. “I thought I was going to marry him.”

She said Nick “was never physically violent” with her, but “he would punch walls. He might get very angry. Nick was very good at messing with your head. She liked to control everything. So if someone called me, he would get really jealous. Once he broke my phone in a fit of rage, like a child.

Ashley Repp was friends with Nick’s sister, Angel Carter, 36.

She said she was 15 and Nick was 23 when he allegedly attacked her at the Carter family home in Florida.

“Aaron and I were the same age. He knew about the incidents with Nick and was always really sweet,” Repp said.

“We ended up having a romantic relationship, but ultimately decided it would be better if we were just good friends.”

After a second instance in which Nick allegedly raped her in front of his friends, “Aaron could tell there was something wrong with me,” she told the cameras. “Aaron was very kind to me. He didn’t have a good relationship with his brother at that time because what he said were other similar events with his brother and younger girls.

Nick’s lawyer denied Repp’s allegations.

Their mother turned the brothers against each other

Jen, a friend of the Carter family, claimed in the document that Nick and Aaron’s mother, Jane, would compare their success and pit Aaron against Nick.

This led to Aaron forming a “huge chip” on his shoulder, while Nick had “no idea” what was happening in the background.

The set of documents notes that Jane declined to comment when contacted.

Aaron’s parents would dismiss his problems

In the documentary series, Aaron’s tour manager spoke about an incident in 2001, when the pop star discovered that his family had gone on holiday without him.

In response, Aaron took a knife and put it to the side of his neck.

“Aaron was telling me he was going to break into Bob’s safe to get the Xanax,” said family friend Jen, referring to Aaron and Nick’s late father, Robert Carter, who died in 2017.

“I wasn’t surprised. I would find these spray cans around the compound and found out that Aaron was using them to get high,” she said, adding that she was concerned enough to alert Aaron’s mother, but “nothing changed.”

Aaron’s cousin, John Spaulding, also claimed to have seen Aaron “huffing paint” with his father, adding, “I don’t know how Bob managed to do that with his son.”

Aaron thought Nick was attacking him cybernetically and hired a private investigator

Aaron, who has struggled with sobriety, bought “about five guns,” according to his ex, Lina Valentina.

He was reportedly improving in 2021. That year, he welcomed his son, Prince, with Melanie Martin.

But she suffered “horrific bullying” and cyber attacks that she believed Nick was involved in.

“I was hired by Aaron. He told me that he was a victim of harassment. He wanted help to stop it. Much of it came from [a social media user named] Ganvel, who calls himself Aaron’s archenemy,” Jennifer Huffman, the private investigator, says on screen.

“Aaron believed his family was behind this.”

Fallen Idols: Nick and Aaron Carter premieres Friday 7 June at 9.30pm (double eps, across two weeks) on Investigation Discovery, available only on Foxtel, Fetch and Binge via Hubbl.
