Aaron’s self-titled debut album, released in 1997, received gold certification in Canada, Denmark, Germany, Norway, and Sweden. “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” his second album, was the one that catapulted him to fame.

Leslie died of a heroin overdose in 2012; Aaron had volunteered to pay for her rehab two weeks before she died.
Aaron started his music career when he was very young, and his parents were his managers. While travelling, he attended Frank D. Miles Elementary School and the Ruskin School, where he received tutoring.
A Career in Music
Carter began performing at the age of seven, when he joined the band Dead End as the lead singer. He quit the band two years later and was signed to a record company after singing a copy of The Jets’ “Crush on You” while opening for the Backstreet Boys in March 1997. Later that year, Aaron released “Crush on You” as a single, which reached gold in Australia.
His self-titled debut album debuted at #5 on the Norwegian charts and #6 on the Swedish charts when it was released on December 1, 1997. “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” Carter’s second album, was released on September 26, 2000, and reached #4 on the “Billboard” 200 list.
The singles “That’s How I Beat Shaq” and “I Want Candy” were released from the album, which was certified 3x Platinum. Aaron was the opening act for several Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears performances at this time, and in March 2001, he did a live concert on the Disney Channel with Samantha Mumba. He made his Broadway debut as JoJo the Who in “Seussical” the following month, at the age of 13.
Carter’s relationship with his siblings has been difficult, and many of their quarrels have been documented on social media.
Carter filed sexual abuse charges against his sister Leslie, who died of a drug overdose in 2012, in September 2019, claiming that the abuse began when he was 10 and concluded when he was 13, and that it occurred when Leslie refused to take her bipolar condition medication.
He also accused his brother Nick of abusing him for the rest of his life, implying that Nick had also abused a female family member. Nick’s legal team disputed the charges, which came after Nick and their sister, Angel, filed a restraining order against Carter after he allegedly confessed to planning to murder Nick’s pregnant wife, Lauren Carter.
Carter was accused of using Jödicke’s copyrighted artwork to market items in January 2020, according to German artist Jonas Jödicke. Carter responded. Jödicke was interviewed by Forbes after the incident, and he said he was “extremely shocked” by Carter’s attitude. Carter agreed to pay Jödicke $12,500 in June 2021.
Carter created an OnlyFans account in March 2020, which is popular in the adult entertainment industry. Carter started charging $50 to $100 for a naked photo, or $26 per month.
“The costs are high, and the material is odd,” PinkNews said, while Queerty said, “The reviews of Aaron Carter’s OnlyFans page are in, and they’re not good.”
Carter was announced as a performer in the Las Vegas production of Naked Boys Singing in August 2021. Because he refused to be vaccinated against COVID-19, he was fired before the show’s premiere.
Carter was arrested in Kimble County, Texas, on February 21, 2008, after he was pulled over for speeding and officials discovered less than two ounces of marijuana in his car.
Carter was arrested in Georgia on July 15, 2017, on allegations of driving under the influence and marijuana possession. Carter consented to plead no contest to reckless driving on October 19, 2021, and was sentenced to probation, which included community service and the payment of $1,500 in court fees and fines, among other things.
Carter received a restraining order against his ex-girlfriend, Russian model Lina Valentina, on August 12, 2019, after she allegedly threatened to knife him.
Carter’s girlfriend Melanie Martin was arrested in Los Angeles on March 29, 2020, after an alleged domestic violence incident against him. Carter had the name ‘Melanie’ tattooed on his forehead a few months before.
Carter filed for bankruptcy on November 22, 2013, to get rid of more than $3.5 million in debt, largely taxes owed from the money he made at the height of his fame. Carter’s publicist, Steve Honig, told CNN, “This is not a bad thing.”
“It’s actually rather encouraging. He’s doing what he needs to do in order to progress.” According to the petition, the US government is Carter’s biggest creditor: “he owes the Internal Revenue Service $1.3 million in unpaid taxes on his revenue in 2003, when Carter was only 16.” Carter paid down his whole tax debt in 2014.
Carter bought a house in Lancaster, California, in February 2019.
