Aaron Carter came out this week on Twitter but unfortunately for the star, he left a great deal of his fame in the 1990’s.

The pop singer was obsessed over by pre teens and teens during the late 90’s, but now everybody is asking the same question: who is Aaron Carter?

Carter, born in 1987, established his stardom at the age of seven and released his first self-titled album at the age of 10 in 1997.

His second of four studio albums, Aaron’s Party (Come Get it) was released three years later in 2000 and sold three million copies in the US alone.

A lot of Carter’s fame rode off the back of his brother, Nick Carter, who was in the Backstreet Boys.

Carter has remained working in music following the four albums he released between 1997 and 2003.

More recently in 2016, Carter released Fool’s Gold in April and an EP titled LøVë in February 2017.

As well as a music career, many will recognise Carter from his appearances in the Lizzy McGuire show, as well as Sabrina the Teenage Witch in which he played himself.

Since his teen heart throb years Carter has been embroiled in a number of scandals including declaring bankruptcy in 2013 when he had $3.5 million in debt.

$1.3 million of this sum came from taxes Carter failed to pay in 2003 when he was just 16.

This year in July, Carter was arrested in Georgia on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana charges according to law enforcement.

Carter also faced backlash for supporting Trump. However, the star withdrew his support for the Republican President two months after initially supporting him.

“I have decided I will not be voting for Donald Trump. I’ve seen a lot and to ME. it’s just something I can’t take part in. Too many reasons,” Carter wrote at the time.

A turning point for Carter was his coming out earlier this week as he wrote that he “never wants to be a figure of disappointment” in his coming out post.

He finished the post with a quote from Boy George: “The best quote to sum “I’ve never felt as though I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.” – Boy George.”

Since coming out, Carter has split with his girlfriend.

Carter had previously suggested that he wanted to tie the knot to Parker, who he met through Instagram.

But his spokesperson confirmed to E Online: “Aaron and Madison love each other and respect one another dearly.

“It was a mutual decision and Aaron’s personal statement released speaks for itself. Now back to the music.”
