Sharna Burgess Speaks Up For Nick Carter After Rape Allegations Against Him Surface

Sharna Burgess has opened up about her opinion of Nick Carter just after he was accused of rape by former Dream singer Melissa Schuman.

The DWTS pro came to Nick‘s defense after the allegations and wants all her fans to know that “this is not victim shaming, y’all know me and I would never. Just because I support Nick, doesn’t mean I don’t support female empowerment or #metoo. They are both movements that I am a part of, here for and proud of.”

During season 21 of Dancing With The Stars, when Sharna and Nick were partners on the show, she says that he was “definitely one of the most respectful guys that I’ve ever danced with on the show. So understanding of the difference between the character and the dance, and then the coach and the dance, all of the different levels of relationships that we have with our partners on the show.”

She continues, “From day one, he was just incredibly sweet and understanding of what it was that we had to do. He was very accepting of me bossing him around every day. …But what I loved about Nick, too, was that he always took ownership of the things that he’d been through — the darkness in his history, the mistakes that he’s made — he wanted to be very open about them
and how he felt about them.”

“Not once did he ever speak to anybody badly, demand anything, become a diva, show anything ugly other than just absolute gratitude for being there, for having made it that far, and just a passion for working hard and trying to do better.”
