Prosecutors for the Los Angeles County District Attorney have declined to go further with the case because it has exceeded the statute of limitations.
Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter has learned that he will not face criminal charges over an allegation of sexual assault in 2003, after the case was thrown out by prosecutors for being over the statute of limitations.
Melissa Schuman, 33, formerly of the girl band Dream, accused Carter earlier this year raping her back in 2003. In February 2018, she waived her right to anonymity by writing a blog detailing the alleged incident, having been inspired to do so by another woman who made a similar allegation against Carter at the end of 2017.
Schuman said she was 18, and a virgin, at the time of the alleged attack, which she claimed took place after she had recorded a duet with Carter.
The band is forced to explain the lyrics of 'I Want It That Way'.
Have you ever wondered about the concept of the Backstreet Boys' song 'I Want It That Way'? We can't say we've ever really thought about it either, but Chrissy Teigen certainly has. She has an important question regarding the 1999 hit, which essentially boils down to: Who wants what which way?

The more we listen to it, the less we get it. It shouldn't be such a difficult concept to grasp, but it clearly is. Chrissy explained that she thought it was some kind of petty argument between a couple about who gets to say they 'want it that way'. Which obviously doesn't make any sense. But then... this was the nineties.

A 90s kid's dream Valentine's - the guys of N Sync and The Backstreet Boys, all in one show.
Guys. N Sync reunion. It happened. As with most classic pop culture moments, it happened during an episode of SNL. And the Backstreet Boys were there too. It wasn’t a coincidence either, as Valentine’s Day marked SNL’s 40th anniversary episode, so they had to make it a bit more special.
Who even needs a Valentine, when you've got the full line-up of N Sync together again.
The N Sync guys tweeted about their appearance earlier in the day, from their official account: "'Together again...Gee, it's good to be together again' #SNL40.”

Mandy Richardson and Kevin Richardson - A variety of stars were snapped as they arrived for the Premiere Of Gravitas Ventures' 'Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of' which was held at ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles, California, United States - Thursday 29th January 2015
Success came and went for Backstreet Boys, but 20 years on, they're still a team.
The Backstreet Boys' time in the spotlight was a limited one at best, with so many elements contributing to their sudden fame and subsequent chart plunder. They unveiled a fresh new sound last year and now mark their return with a new documentary entitled 'Show 'Em What You're Made Of'.
Backstreet Boys ponder their career in a new documentary
The American boyband had their biggest career peak in 1999, but it wasn't long before they became another forgotten about boyband. They seemed to become an overnight hit in the UK and Europe, and soon they stormed their own nation. However, the success was blighted by lawsuits against their manager Lou Pearlman, who allegedly stole a large proportion of the band's earnings, not to mention problems with Jive Records, Nick Carter's desire to pursue a solo career, Kevin Richardson's departure and A.J. McLean's drug abuse confession.
In the late 90's and early 00's, The Backstreet Boys were the most powerful boy band in the world. After discovering that they had not been particularly popular in the US, the band travelled overseas and became a phenomenon in Europe. But the European scene was not enough for the American band, and they had to crack the US. With a career spanning years of highs and lows, The Backstreet Boys made their way from nothing, to Europe, to worldwide sensation. But what does that sort of strain does that success put on otherwise ordinary people? And just how does anybody overcome it?
'Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of' is an upcoming documentary about the much loved boy band from documentary director Stephen Kijak. The film was set in motion when the band decided to meet in London in 2012 to work on a new album, yet they decided that they wanted to make a movie instead, telling the story of their band and its success. The band contributed all the music to the film, with a release date set for 30th January, 2015 in the US, and a worldwide release date of 26th February, 2015.
McBusted rocked out BST Hyde Park on Sunday with special guests Backstreet Boys and The Vamps.
Hyde Park's annual Barclaycard British Summer Time concert embarked on its first string of 2014 shows last week (3 - 6 July 2014) with a flurry of much-loved pop, rock and indie acts hitting London for the event.
Sunday was definitely one of the most anticipated days for BST Hyde Park with headliners McBusted rocking out the stage following their first nationwide tour as a supergroup.
The band, who are all the members of McFly and two of the members from defunct rock band Busted (Matt Willis and James Bourne), united last year and made their overseas live debut supporting One Direction on their 'Where We Are Tour' last month.
