Nick Carter’s Net Worth Is an Estimated $35 Million

Nick Carter, one of the original members of the Backstreet Boys, has a net worth of $35 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He has a background as a child actor and entertainer. At the age 12, he was accepted into both the Backstreet Boys and the Mickey Mouse Club. He launched a solo career in 2002 after great success with the group.

Carter has been accused of rape by more than one woman, the Daily Mail reported. In November, a woman came forward to allege he had sexually assaulted her on his tour bus in 2001 when she was 17 years old. Carter denies the allegations, but the group’s special “A Very Backstreet Holiday” has been canceled by ABC in the aftermath.
