As the Backstreet Boys’ lawsuit against Zomba/Jive starts to take shape, Jive is getting quite stingy, as expected, with Nick. He is apart of the lawsuit, so Jive is apparently now trying its best to force Nick to cancel shows and appearances to make him appear cruel to his fans. MTVAsia.com says Nick Carter has canceled his trip to Singapore citing “scheduling conflicts” as the main reason, Nick has decided to cancel his appearances at the 2003 MTV Asia Awards and the regional press junket and showcase at Hard Rock Cafe. Jive has also limited Nick to doing only a 17-date tour. Fans in hundreds of cities throughout the world are very upset by this. Jive is even preventing Nick from touring his home state of Florida.
