Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter is the target of a fame seeker ... so says Brian Littrell who claims the rape allegations levied against his bandmate are garbage.
We got Brian out at LAX Tuesday and wondered what would happen to the band should Nick get slapped with rape charges. TMZ broke the story ... the case now rests in the hands of the L.A. County D.A.
As we first reported ... Nick's accused of raping Dream singer Melissa Schuman in 2002, but she only filed a police report 7 months ago.
Brian's confident Nick will prevail and thinks the allegations are a sign of the times.
