Nick Carter is backing up the sexual battery lawsuit against him…he says he has a dozen witnesses who claim his accusations are full of BS.
According to new legal documents obtained by TMZ, the Backstreet Boys member says he has 12 people who have testified that the alleged victim’s version of events cannot possibly be true.
TMZ broke the story… Nick is being sued of a woman named Shannon Ruthwho filed a lawsuit in December claiming he sexually assaulted her after a concert way back in 2001 when she was a minor.
But Nick isn’t so quick … he claims he has 12 witnesses from the concert — fans, security and a talent manager — who say the accuser’s story is “factually impossible.”
Remember … Ruth, who says she is autistic and has cerebral palsy, claims she was standing in line for Nick’s autograph after the show when he allegedly invited her back to his tour bus, forced her with alcohol and forced her to to perform orally. sex on him.
But Nick says his dozen witnesses testified it was impossible for him to interact with the alleged victim after the concert … they say there was no autograph line and fans had no access to the tour bus staging area.
What’s more, Nick says one of Ruth’s close friends at the time testified that Ruth is lying about being autistic and suffering from cerebral palsy … and she doesn’t even believe Ruth was at the concert.
In the documents, Nick claims another witness testified they were in conversations where Ruth’s name was brought up as part of a plot to blackmail Nick … an alleged money grab he previously mentioned in his counter suit against Ruth.
Bottom line for Nick…he says his accusations are not credible and he has the receipts.
