ABC pulls Backstreet Boys Holiday Special following Nick Carter Lawsuit
ABC has canceled next week’s “A Very Backstreet Holiday” after the recent accusation made against Nick Carter.
The Backstreet Boys’ holiday special was filmed in Los Angeles, and was slated to air on Dec. 14. It featured Carter alongside AJ McLean, Kevin Richardson, Brian Littrell, and Howie Dorough. The group debuted their first holiday album, “A Very Backstreet Christmas,” in October.
Seth Rogen, Meghan Trainor and Nikki Glaser were among the many other celebrities slated to attend the special.

On Thursday, Nick Carter was sued by a woman who alleged that she was 17 years old when Carter assaulted her on his tour bus after a concert in 2001, according to documents obtained by Variety.
Nick Carter has denied the allegations.
“This claim about an incident that supposedly took place more than 20 years ago is not only legally meritless but also entirely untrue,” Carter’s attorney, Michael Holtz, said in a statement to Variety. “Unfortunately, for several years now, Ms. Ruth has been manipulated into making false allegations about Nick – and those allegations have changed repeatedly and materially over time. No one should be fooled by a press stunt orchestrated by an opportunistic lawyer – there is nothing to this claim whatsoever, which we have no doubt the courts will quickly realize.”
