Is Nick Carter headed to court? Following his arrest at a Key West bar on Jan. 13, one of the bouncers is suing Nick for attacking him after the singer was kicked out — because Nick went straight for the jugular! Get the details here!
Nick Carter, 35, could be in more trouble than he bargained for after getting into a bar fight during a night out. The Backstreet Boys singer already faced an arrest for his aggression towards a bouncer at Key West’s Hog’s Breath Saloon, but now he is being hit with a lawsuit as a result! This could end up being the costliest trip to the bar Nick will ever have!
After Nick and his buddy Michael Papayans allegedly caused a scene after being denied drinks due to their intoxicated state, a bouncer named Skylar Carden had the task of kicking the two out of the bar — which ultimately led him to filing a lawsuit against Nick, TMZ reports. The Dancing With The Stars alum was originally given the boot for his “unruly and disrespectful” behavior, according to Skylar’s lawsuit, but something set Nick off upon being thrown out and that’s when he got physically aggressive.
As if things weren’t already turning sour, Nick didn’t just fight Skylar’s attempt to kick him out. Skylar claims in the lawsuit that Nick was “striking and choking” him. Whoa, no wonder the police had to get involved and Skylar wanted to file a lawsuit!
Although Nick has claimed that the truth has yet to come out with this case, Skylar’s attorney, Mark DiCowden, might make any counter argument kind of difficult! Mark says Nick is nothing more than a “backstreet thug” who caused mental anguish, pain and suffering on Skylar. Plus, Mark insists that Skylar was just doing his job before Nick attacked. Who knows what Nick will have to say to that!
No further details regarding the lawsuit have been revealed, but this isn’t exactly the best time for Nick to be getting into this kind of trouble. His wife, Lauren Kitt, is pregnant with their first child, so Nick’s time and money definitely needs to be focused elsewhere! Let’s hope nothing more comes from this bar fight!
