One of the late 90's biggest heart throbs who is recently making a comeback, pop singer Aaron Carter, was arrested in Georgia on the evening of July 15th, 2017. His girlfriend, Madison Parker, was also arrested.
Carter was charged with a DUI and possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana, along with possession of other drug-related objects. Carter's girlfriend was charged with possession of marijuana and drug-related objects and obstruction of law enforcement officers. The two have reportedly been together for about six months.
The singer was set to perform in Kansas City the same night he was arrested. Representatives for the singer used his social media accounts to apologize to fans, claiming it was ‘transportation issues’.
After the incident, Aaron’s brother, Nick Carter (former member of the popular boy band ‘Backstreet Boys’ and current judge on the reality competition show ‘Boy Band’) sent a message to his little brother via Twitter. He said, “I love you no matter what” and he is “here and willing to help you get better.”
Aaron also responded to his arrest on July 16th. He claimed to hold a license for medical marijuana to help with his anxiety and feels ‘targeted’ because of his celebrity status. In response, he is reportedly pursuing legal matters. He also released a statement specifically to his older brother Nick, implying he does not actually care about his well-being. He says his brother’s actions were ‘uncool’, but he still loves him. Read Aaron Carter’s full statements below.
However, according to Business Insider, Aaron Carter credited Nick for ‘saving his life’ after he checked him into rehab in 2011. Nick brought him to the rehabilitation center and paid for all of the services.
