Backstreet Boy Nick Carter reveals his wife had a miscarriage: 'I'm heartbroken'

Nick revealed he and his wife suffered the devastating loss

As previously reported, Carter was accused of rape by singer Melissa Schuman, a former member of girl group Dream, in November 2017.

"The statute of limitations expired in 2013", the paperwork went on to say.

Carter, 38, feels vindicated that no charges will be brought against him, according to his lawyer.

Schuman shared the allegations - which Carter denied - in a detailed blog post a year ago.

"It feels wonderful and it's insane how much more in love you can become when you start this phase of your life", he said about seeing Lauren pregnant. "He didn't respond and continued to kiss me", Schuman wrote.

She said that Carter then demanded she perform oral sex on him before taking her to his room and raping her despite her allegedly telling him she was waiting until marriage to have sex.

The charge evaluation worksheet stated that, because the statute of limitations had passed, "an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted and the matter is declined".

'It is unfortunate that the law isn't fully retroactive to accommodate assaults that have happened in the past, regardless of how far back'.

An attorney for Carter, whose band is now playing a long-term engagement in Las Vegas, said in a statement today that the singer was "happy to put the matter behind him".

"Nick has denied these allegations ever since he first learned of them past year, and was confident the district attorney would conclude that there was no basis to pursue charges against him", Holtz said in a statement.

She said she was "well aware of the likelihood that my case was not prosecutable", but that it had provided her with "great solace" to know that prosecutors had looked into her case.

"He's just a bundle of joy and it melts my heart and gives me goal and reason to keep on staying healthy, staying motivated and all of those things", he told ET while reflecting on his first year as a dad.

"He is happy to put this matter behind him".
