Aaron Carter Emotionally Speaks Out About Mental Health Struggles, Denies Drug Use

Aaron Carter has undergone some severe issues as of lately. While the 90’s singer has been off the radar for quite some time, he made headlines recently when he was bullied online about his weight and, was also arrested for a DUI and reported drug possession. While on the way to a guest appearance, the former teen heartthrob was arrested alongside girlfriend, Madison Parker, for failing a breathalyzer test and for carrying more than an ounce of marijuana, along with other drugs, in his vehicle.

However, Aaron has also recently claimed he had no drugs in his system at the time of his arrest, nor was he operating a moving vehicle. He also claims he has a prescription for medial marijuana, for his anxiety and stress.

After being released from jail, Carter took to Twitter to speak out about the incident and also, discuss his deteriorating relationship with his older brother – former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter.

After his arrest, Nick took to Twitter to reach out to Aaron, instead of personally reaching out. Aaron slammed Nick online and also in a recent interview – claiming it was all for publicity. However, Nick’s wife claims both Aaron and Madison had changed their numbers and they had no way of contacting them.

But – Aaron wants nothing to do with Nick at all anymore. According to an interview with Entertainment TonightAaron said –

“How about all of the other options he had? How about calling me in jail? I don’t need Nick’s help. I don’t need that. I don’t need help. What I need is for people to understand that I’m human and I make mistakes just like every other human in this world.”

Aaron also opened up about everyone in the world calling him a “meth head,” because of his frail appearance. He claims that he is suffering with a hiatal hernia as well as an eating disorder he has struggled with for over a decade. He claims that the social media bashing has not helped his stress levels or his health disorders.

 “How would you feel every two seconds, seeing a tweet, ‘You have AIDS, go die. Oh look at this meth head. Meth kills. Crack kills. I’m not a meth head. I’ve never touched it in my life … it is body-shaming and it’s the toughest thing to deal with.”

You have to admit, if you were constantly being called a drug-head and being shamed for the way you look, while battling a psychological illness such as an eating disorder, it would be increasingly hard to recover.

We hope Aaron Carter ignores the haters and finds the help he needs.
