Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys is angered by the mention of his name in a lawsuit filed by his younger sister’s roommate.
Kathryn Kelly has filed a lawsuit against her former roommate, Bobby Jean Carter, 23, claiming she had assaulted her during the month of April.
According to the lawsuit, Kelly claims Bobby Jean “stabbed Kelly with a knife in her thumb, leg and arms,” as well as, “punched, choked, pinned and forcefully struck Kelly multiple times,” reported E! Online.
Mentioned also were Carter, 25, and his father, Robert. The suit claims they did not supervise Bobby Jean during the time of the attacks while she worked for her father and as her brother’s assistant.
“It is obvious that the only reason Nick Carter was named in this lawsuit was so that she could get publicity, since her lawsuit does not contain any claim that Nick Carter personally engaged in any wrongful conduct harming the accuser. We are confident that the court will promptly dispose of these frivolous and fictional claims against Nick Carter,” stated Carter’s attorney, Martin D. Singer.
“After the case is completed, he plans on filing for sanctions against her and her counsel to stop her and others like her from attempting to capitalize on his name,” said Carter’s rep, Juliette Harris.
Carter and the Backstreet Boys are preparing to kick off their summer tour.
