Famous singer Aaron Carter announced he was checking into a rehab facility on September 22, 2017 following concerns about his drug abuse. One of Carter’s representatives revealed that the decision was made “to improve his health and work on his overall wellness.”
Additionally, Carter sent out a series of tweets to his fans, informing them that this was the best decision and it is not his family’s choice. His fans supported his decision and were looking forward to him returning on tour next year.
The news came shortly after police visited Carter’s home multiple times in a 24-hour period in early September. The cop visits were related to concerns about Carter’s substance abuse and him possibly posing a threat to himself and others.
Earlier this year, he was also arrested with his ex-girlfriend for possession of marijuana and a DUI.
However, People revealed on October 6th that he has already left the facility after only 2 weeks of treatment. It was unclear how long he was originally supposed to be in rehab, but it was suspected to be at least through the end of the year since given the previous announcement he made to his fans about starting back on tour in 2018.
The following statement was released on the singer’s behalf, “Aaron has left the facility where he has been working on his wellness. Several legal and personal matters arose that required his immediate and in-person attention. He is still very much committed to his wellness and will be continually working toward being the best person possible.”
Details were not revealed regarding the “legal and personal matters.”
Carter was a 1990’s heartthrob among younger generations and is just recently making his return back in the music industry. His fan base consists of mostly children and teenagers.
As of early morning Friday, Carter has not yet returned to social media, which he used frequently prior to checking into the rehab facility. If he releases a personal statement, this article will be updated accordingly.
