Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter will not be charged for allegations of rape made by Dream singer Melissa Schuman.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the statute of limitations for the alleged 2003 incident expired in 2013.

As we reported … Schuman claimed Nick raped her several years ago and filed a report with the LAPD for the incident in February. In a blog post, the singer said Nick forced her into a bathroom and forced oral sex on her … then made her reciprocate. She says Carter then took her to a bedroom and forced intercourse.

Carter maintained the sex was consensual, saying, “I am shocked and saddened by Ms. Schuman’s accusations. Melissa never expressed to me while we were together or at any time since that anything we did was not consensual.”

Carter continued, “We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally.”
