The docuseries on former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, 44, and his pop star brother Aaron Carter has stirred up significant interest in the siblings' lives. 'Fallen Idols: Nick and Aaron Carter', which premiered on Monday, May 27, made some explosive claims about the rockstar brothers. The docuseries not only brushes upon the subject of Aaron's tragic death in 2022 - aged 34 - but also deals with a series of accusations against Nick. Though a note onscreen appears claiming Nick “denied the allegations and questions his accusers’ credibility," the docuseries makes a series of shocking revelations about the pop star brothers, per New York Post.

While Paris Hilton has not publicly spoken about getting hit by Nick, journalist Scaachi Koul claimed Paris Hilton was reportedly hit by Nick during their romance in 2004. Koul said in the documentary, “This is a 2004 story about Paris Hilton allegedly telling her friends that her ex-boyfriend Nick had hit her. There are photos of her with a swollen lip and bruises on her arms.” before adding, “Nick Carter says he didn’t do it. There’s no real follow-up and generally the stories end with Nick’s perspective on it.” While Hilton never addressed the allegations, Nick denied them in an interview with MTV News in 2004, saying, “If they need the media attention, let them do their thing. My family, friends and fans know that this is not my character and I would never hurt someone that I cared for or do anything like the malicious things they are claiming.”

2. Nick’s ex Melissa Schuman makes damning accusations

Melissa Schuman claimed Nick Carter sexually assaulted her in 2003. She further claimed that following the events, Nick allegedly texted her saying, “Why did you make me do that?” Schuman recalled, “That text message freaked me out,” before adding, "I confided in my manager about going to the police and reporting the crime. He told me, ‘[Nick] has the most powerful litigator in the country.'" However, in a statement onscreen, her former manager denied the claim that Schuman told him anything. Nick said in a statement to Page Six in 2017, “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. We went on to record a song and perform together, and I was always respectful and supportive of Melissa both personally and professionally. This is the first that I am hearing about these accusations, nearly two decades later. It is contrary to my nature and everything I hold dear to intentionally cause someone discomfort or harm.”

3. Nick’s ex-girlfriend Kaya Jones supports his accusers

Nick's ex-girlfriend Kaya Jones, 39, appeared to be supporting Schuman's statements. Appearing in the documentary, she said, “A young woman try to speak and someone who thought he had more power and authority try to shut her up.” She added, “He knows what I know. He knows why I left him. So do I believe that something horrific happened to that girl? Yes, yes I do.” Jones further claimed that while Nick was “never physically violent” with her, “He would punch walls. He could get very angry. Nick was very good at messing with your head. He liked to control everything. So if anyone called my phone, he got really jealous. He broke my phone once like a temper tantrum like a child.”

4. Aaron went against Nick by supporting his accusers

Aaron Carter's problematic relationship with Nick was not just a result of sibling rivalry but also caused by him supporting the statements of Nick's accusers. One of Nick's accusers, Ashley Repp shared that she was friends with Nick’s sister Angel Carter, 36. She claimed in the interview that she was assaulted by Nick when she was just 15 and the singer was 23. Recalling the alleged incident that took place at the Carter family home in Florida, Repp said, “Aaron and I were the same age. He knew about the incidents with Nick, and he was always just really sweet." She added, “We did end up having a romantic relationship, but ultimately we decided it was better if we were just good friends.” In another instance, after Nick purportedly assaulted her in front of his friends, “Aaron could tell that something was wrong with me," she continued. “Aaron was very kind to me. He didn’t have a great relationship with his brother at that time because [of] what he said were other similar events with his brother and younger girls.”

5. Jane Carter allegedly turned the brothers against each other

The documentary hypothesized that the Carter matriarch might have fueled the competition between the two brothers. Their family friend Jen claimed that Jane would often compare Aaron's success to Nick's, which ultimately turned the younger brother against the Backstreet Boys rocker. Apparently, this led Aaron to form a “massive chip” on his shoulder. Nick, on the other hand, had “no idea” about the whole picture. 

6. Aaron hired a PI thinking Nick was behind his cyber bullying

The documentary showed another facet of the relationship between Nick and Aaron as a private investigator said that the 'Supercrossed' star once thought Nick was behind the cyberbullying he suffered in 2021 before his death in November, 2022. According to Aaron's ex, Lina Valentina, the performer bought “like five rifles,” and allegedly thought of killing Nick and his wife Lauren Kitt’s children. However, he was reportedly recuperating in 2021 and welcomed his son Prince, with Melanie Martin. But at the same time, he was sujected to “horrific bullying” and cyberattacks. Believing that his brother Nick was responsible behind those attacks, Aaron hired a private investigator. The PI, Jennifer Huffman, shared, “I was hired by Aaron. He told me he was the victim of harassment. He wanted some help getting it to stop. A lot of it was from [a social media user named] Ganvel, who calls himself Aaron’s archnemesis,” before adding, “Aaron believed his family was behind it.”

7. Aaron’s parents allegedly did nothing to help with his substance abuse

Aaron Carter's parents allegedly did not pay attention to the 'I'm All About You' singer's struggle with substance abuse. One of the Carters' family friends, Jen, said in the documentary, “Aaron would tell me he would break into Bob’s safe to get Xanax,” referring to the brothers' late father Robert Carter, who died in 2017. She shared, “I wasn’t surprised. I would find these aerosol cans around the compound and found out that Aaron was using them to get high,” before adding that even though she alerted their mother Jane, “nothing changed.”
