Aaron Carter was born Aaron Charles Carter in Tampa, Florida on December 7, 1987. Carter grew up with older brother Nick Carter (one of the Backstreet Boys), older sisters Leslie and BJ, and twin sister Angel, and his parents, Robert (who died in 2017) and Jane, who ran a retirement home. Leslie died of a drug overdose in 2012; Aaron had offered to pay for her rehab two weeks before her death.
Aaron began his music career at a young age, with his parents serving as managers. He attended Frank D. Miles Elementary School and the Ruskin School and received tutoring while touring.
Carter began performing at the age of seven when he joined the band Dead End as the lead singer. He left the band two years later, and in March 1997, while opening for the Backstreet Boys, he sang a cover of “Crush on You” by The Jets and was signed to a record label.
Later that year, Aaron released “Crush on You” as a single, which went gold in Australia. His self-titled debut album, released on December 1, 1997, peaked at number five in Norway and number six in Sweden.
Carter’s second album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” was released on September 26, 2000, and reached number four on the Billboard 200 chart.
The album was certified three times platinum and produced the singles “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “I Want Candy.” During this time, Aaron was the opening act for several Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears concerts, and in March 2001, he performed a live concert on the Disney Channel with Samantha Mumba. The following month, at the age of 13, he made his Broadway debut as JoJo the Who in “Seussical.”
Film and Television Career
Aaron made his television debut on Nickelodeon’s “Figure It Out” in 1998, and he later appeared as a guest star on the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” and ABC’s “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” in 2001.
The Carters got their own show, “House of Carters,” on the E! network in 2006, which aired eight episodes. Aaron has also appeared in films such as “Fat Albert” (2004), “Ella Enchanted” (2004), “Popstar” (2005), and “I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With” (2006).
Bankruptcy and Legal Issues
Carter declared bankruptcy in the state of Florida in November 2013, citing $3.5 million in debt. Carter listed his total assets in the bankruptcy filing as $8,232.16.
The majority of the liability stemmed from earnings during his peak popularity. Aaron apparently owed the IRS $1.368 million on his own.
He also stated that his average monthly income is $2,000 and his average monthly expenses are $2,005. Carter was living with a relative at the time of the filing and claimed his most valuable physical assets were a $500 television, two MacBook computers, a Louis Vuitton backpack, and a $3,500 Breitling watch.
Aaron has a history of run-ins with the law. He was stopped for speeding in 2008 and arrested when police discovered a small amount of marijuana in his vehicle; in 2017, he was charged with DUI and marijuana possession.
In 2019, Nick and Angel Carter obtained restraining orders against Aaron after he revealed to Angel that he had bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, as well as “thoughts of killing babies” and Nick’s then-pregnant wife.
Aaron announced in April 2020 that he is expecting a child with his girlfriend, model Melanie Martin, and they got engaged in June. The couple began dating in January 2019 but split up briefly in March 2020 after Martin was arrested for assaulting Carter.
Aaron, who is bisexual, was previously engaged to actress/model Kari Ann Peniche, and he dated (at the same time) actresses Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan in the early 2000s.
Carter has a hiatal hernia and lactose intolerance, and he previously mixed opiates with benzodiazepines to treat anxiety and sleep problems.
In 2017, he entered a Malibu rehabilitation facility, underweight and malnourished. Aaron claimed in 2019 that his late sister Leslie had sexually abused him for three years, beginning when he was 10, and that his brother had also abused him.
Aaron paid $430,000 in October 2018 for a 2,686-square-foot home in Lancaster, California.
In July 2020, he listed the three-bedroom house for $599,000.
