Aaron Carter, or AC, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, actor, dancer and record producer. He became very popular when he started out as a pop and hip-hop singer in the late 1990’s. Carter is also known as Backstreet Boys’ very own Nick Carter’s little brother. From drug addiction to family members passing away, Carter has been through a lot in his life. However, the spotlight is on him once again, and not for anything positive.
The past few weeks, Carter has been under fire from all angles. As of September 17, Nick Carter has filed a restraining order against his little brother. Nick Carter claims that Aaron Carter threatened to kill his pregnant wife and unborn child. Aaron Carter claims he never said he was going to harm his family. Both Carter brothers took to Twitter to talk about the situation. While Nick Carter announced his restraining order and his reasons for it, Aaron Carter said, “I am astounded at the accusations being made against me. I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family.” He continued on to say, “All I ask is for my family to leave me alone. This is blood. Not love. I will never be around you and I don’t want to be around you.”
Unfortunately for Aaron Carter, his twin sister, Angel Carter, also filed a restraining order against him. In her announcement on Twitter, she said, “Today, I filed a protective order with my brother Nick in Los Angeles. Following a recent relapse, Aaron confessed to me that he had violent thoughts towards babies and our family members. This, combined with his recent access to assault rifles has made us afraid for our safety.” In an on-camera interview with TMZ, Aaron Carter claimed he sold three of his guns and turned the other two guns into police. He also said he is working with doctors about his drug addictions. Carter confirmed on an episode of “The Doctors” that he continues to struggle with multiple mental health issues that he treats with prescribed medication.
Aaron Carter has been on multiple podcasts talking about the recent allegations. These podcasts include “No Jumper” and Logan Paul’s “Impaulsive.” These interviews fueled the internet to attack Carter more about drug addiction. This drove Carter to take a in-home drug test on Instagram to prove he is not relapsing.
Carter also debuted a new face tattoo just days after claiming on “Impaulsive” that he “did not need a face tattoo.” Carter also tweeted fans that day asking that people “respect me & leave me alone.” He said he was “doing just fine” and “I already have to move, and I don’t need to be under scrutiny with every decision I make. I will take the necessary precautions to protect myself.”
Whether you are a big Backstreet Boys fan or have been a fan of Aaron Carter, this family feud is a messy one. With all involved very much in the public eye, Aaron Carter seems to be the only one taking to social media to defend himself while his siblings stay quiet.
