Mini Bio (1)

Aaron Charles Carter was born December 7, 1987 in Tampa, Florida, to Jane Elizabeth (Spaulding) and Robert Gene Carter. He was the younger brother of Nick Carter (the Backstreet Boys) and had three sisters.

He began his music career at age seven, singing lead for the band "Dead End" for two years. He made his first solo appearance when he was 9, opening for the Backstreet Boys in Berlin in March 1997. The performance was followed by a record contract and, in the fall of 1997, he released his first single, "Crush On You".

His first full-length album "Aaron Carter" came out Dec 1, 1997. It achieved gold status in Norway, Spain, Denmark, Canada and Germany. The album was released in the United States on June 16, 1998. On May 18, 1998, Carter released the EP "Let The Music Heal Your Soul", a fund-raising project that featured vocals by Carter, the Backstreet Boys, 'N Sync, the Moffatts and other artists. His next album, Aaron's Party (Sep 26, 2000), was released in the United States under the Jive Label. The album achieved triple-platinum certification.

At 13, Carter recorded the album "Oh, Aaron" (Aug 7, 2001) which featured his first duet recording with his brother Nick. "Oh, Aaron" was accompanied by a video/DVD of the same name (March 26, 2002) which included footage of his 2001 concert in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as well as music videos and interviews. Play Along Toys also created an Aaron Carter action figure along with the album's release.

Carter's next album, "Another Earthquake" (September 3, 2002), was released during the 2002 "Rock, Rap, and Retro" tour. The album featured the patriotic-themed "America A O" and the ballad "Do You Remember". Most Requested Hits was released November 3, 2003.

I'm well aware many of you have shown concern for me over the past few weeks. Having people who genuinely care for you is something that should never be taken for granted. For as long as I can remember, I've chased unconditional love and hoped for true stability in my family. I've spent most of my adult life seeking validation from these same people. I started to get a chip on my shoulder when I kept coming up short on something that doesn't cost a thing. LOVE. All I want is Love. What has transpired recently does not represent my true wants or needs. I've been fighting fire with fire, something I still need to work on. Some have pointed and laughed, but many many more have shown genuine support for what I've been vulnerable enough to share. For the record: I'm okay. I'm simply choosing to no longer be controlled by fear. I don't fear my past. I do not fear the truth. I don't fear anyone but God.

I have never had thoughts of causing anyone pain, let alone taking anyone's life.

With that in mind, I ask everyone to please leave me alone and let the legal system do their thing.

My sister lied over and over in an effort to take away my 2nd Amendment rights and she did it on behalf of my brother to silence me talking about how he raped and sexually assaulted multiple women.

My sister Leslie suffered from bipolar and took lithium to treat it. She never liked the way it made her feel and when she was off of it she did things that she never meant to do I truly believe that. I was 10 years old. I have spent the last 15 years of my life going to therapy for abuse & rape, I've been through many different treatments, I have finally found the right treatment. I have had my ups and downs, I continue to work on my mental health and I will soon not have to take anything. I went through extensive therapy and treatments and I have never been diagnosed bipolar or schizophrenic. My sister raped me from the age of 10 to 13 years old when she wasn't on her medications. I feel cleansed all my truth is out I just need to focus now on my music my career and supporting all victims of abuse and rape.
I have to apologize to you, because I lied to you when I came here. I have a truth that I'm going to reveal right now. The reason why I went to rehab is for huffing aerosols, duster cans, that's why I went. I lied to you and I'm sorry. I'm here to make amends, do the first step of 12-step, admit that I was powerless and I can believe in something greater than myself. Second, you know, make amends for my shortcomings. I just feel that it was important for me to apologize to you because I came in here in denial, okay? And that, in my opinion, after two years of being clean and sober from you guys. You guys saved my life and since that happened, I had to get my shit together.
My sister raped me from the age of 10 to 13 years old when she wasn't on her medications and I was absused [sic] not only sexually by her but by my first two back up dancers when I was 8 years old. And my brother absused [sic] me my whole life.
You know what, I've always talked about getting face tattoos and honestly I always get tattoos knowing the intention that I can get them removed if I want. They're not permanent like everyone says ... My tattoos, they started off because I was such a little kid, a scrawny little kid. I started getting tattoos all over me to make me look like I'm tough so people wouldn't mess with me. And they stopped. This is my body, my life, my choices.
I got tattoos to make me look tough because I was so scrawny as a defense mechanism. The medusa on my face means 'Don't look at me the wrong way or this b---- is going to turn you into stone.' Stop click-baiting me.
Of course if Demi Lovato accidentally overdoses on opiates, then the next day she is on the cover of "Women's Fitness". The media doesn't want to treat me like that. They want to villainize me. I am coming up on five years being clean and the media doesn't pay as much attention to it as they should, because I am the living testament to "you can do it". There is a lot of things I have to change.
I am 35 this year and this is one of the biggest growth learning lessons years I've ever had. I am getting off social media, not paying attention to negativity.

Even to this day there are questions as to why I was destroying my life. I do not have the answers, but the one thing I do have is the ability to survive and the brains and means to do so. The first person who brought me to rehab [at] the Betty Ford Center and paid for it was Nick. And I love you for that Nick. It took me a while to get right but I have got it figured out.
There were times when my three sisters, when I turned 18 and got millions of dollars, were hanging out with me, because I had the money. Then when I go broke and lose it all, where are they? That upsets me a lot. It takes two to tango. I have reached out many times and they treat me the way that Michael Jackson's brothers treated him. It's sad. It is like I'm appreciated more when I am failing than when I'm succeeding.
I realized that I was killing myself and everything was being destroyed around me from it. I was lying to the world and myself. Everybody deserves a second chance. I have not committed any crazy crimes. I am not how some people try to paint me. If somebody wants to call me a train wreck, well I've been a train that's been wrecked multiple times and derailed by many different things. But I rebuild, get on the tracks and keep going.
