In April 2020, Aaron announced that he is expecting a child with his girlfriend, model Melanie Martin, and they became engaged in June. The couple first began dating in January 2019 but briefly split up 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 actresses Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan (at the same time) in the early 2000s. Carter has suffered from several health issues, including a hiatal hernia and lactose intolerance, and he previously mixed opiates with benzodiazepines to treat anxiety and sleep problems. Underweight and malnourished, he entered a Malibu rehabilitation facility in 2017. In 2019, Aaron alleged that his late sister Leslie had sexually abused him for three years, beginning when he was 10, and accused his brother of abuse as well.
Aaron Carter was born Aaron Charles Carter on December 7, 1987, in Tampa, Florida. His parents, Robert (who passed away in 2017) and Jane, ran a retirement home, and Carter grew up with older brother Nick (one of the Backstreet Boys), older sisters Leslie and BJ, and twin sister Angel. Sadly, Leslie died of a drug overdose in 2012; two weeks before her death, Aaron had offered to pay for her to go to rehab. Aaron began his music career at a very young age, and his parents acted as his managers. He studied at the Frank D. Miles Elementary School and the Ruskin School and learned from tutors while touring.
Film and Television Career
Aaron made his television debut on a 1998 episode of Nickelodeon’s “Figure It Out,” then he guest-starred on the Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire” and ABC’s “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” in 2001. In 2006, the E! network gave the Carters their own show, “House of Carters,” which aired eight episodes. Aaron has also appeared in several films, including “Fat Albert” (2004), “Ella Enchanted” (2004), “Popstar” (2005), and “I Want Someone to Eat Cheese With” (2006).
Carter began performing at age 7, when he became the lead singer of the band Dead End. He left the band two years later, and in March 1997, he sang a cover of “Crush on You” by The Jets while opening for the Backstreet Boys and was signed to a record label. Aaron released “Crush on You” as a single later that year, and it went gold in Australia. His self-titled debut album, which was released on December 1, 1997, reached #5 on the Norwegian charts and #6 on the Swedish charts. Carter’s second album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” was released on September 26, 2000, and peaked at #4 on the “Billboard” 200 chart. The certified 3x Platinum album spawned the singles “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “I Want Candy.” During this period, Aaron served as the opening act for several Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears concerts, and in March 2001, he performed a concert with Samantha Mumba live on the Disney Channel. The following month, he played JoJo the Who in “Seussical,” making his Broadway debut at the age of 13.
In August 2001, Carter debuted a new album, the certified Platinum, “Oh Aaron,” and Play Along Toys released an Aaron Carter action figure. Later that year, Aaron appeared on the “Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius” soundtrack, and in 2002, he released the DVD “Oh Aaron: Live in Concert” as well as his fourth album, “Another Earthquake!” That year, Carter’s parents sued Lou Pearlman, his former manager, alleging that he owed Aaron a substantial amount of royalties; Pearlman was also sued by the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC. Aaron didn’t release another album until 2018, and the second single off of “Love,” “Sooner or Later,” was certified Gold in Italy and reached #4 on the “Billboard” Spotify Viral 50.

Carter began his career as the lead singer of ‘Dead End’ which was a local band formed by members of a rock school in Tampa. However, their interests conflicted as Carter was more interested in pop while the others preferred alternative rock. His first solo appearance was made when he was only nine years of age. It was an opening for the ‘Backstreet Boys’ in Berlin, which took place in March 1997. His first single ‘Crush on You’ was released the same year. In 2000, his second album ‘Aaron’s Party (Come Get it)’ was released. It included several singles such as ‘I Want Candy’ ‘Aaron’s Party (Come Get it)’, and ‘That’s How I Beat Shaq’. The songs were often aired on Disney and Nickelodeon.
His next work ‘Another Earthquake’ was released in 2002. It was a mild success, though not as successful as his previous works. It also was Aaron’s final studio album under the label of Jive Records. In 2011, it was announced by Johnny Wright, Carter’s manager, that he was in a treatment facility for emotional and spiritual healing. He spent a month at a rehab center named Betty Ford Center in California after which he started performing normally again.
