Nick Carter Gets Restraining Order Against Aaron For Alleged Death Threats To Pregnant Wife

Aaron Carter has been having a complicated year. He's gone through an intense break up, been body-shamed, and been open about both his mental health issues and his passion for gun ownership.

Things have taken another complicated turn as Aaron's brother and Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter made a shocking announcement on Twitter.

Nick tweeted out that he and his sister Angel filed a restraining order against Aaron.

"After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today," the statement read. He also included the hashtags "#mentalhealth," "#GunControlNow," and "#GunControl."

"In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice..."

"...but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family. We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else."

Aaron also took to Twitter to respond.

Tweeting that he had just been served the restraining order, Aaron added that he had not seen his brother in years and had no intentions of doing so. He also claimed that he never threatened anybody, "especially not family."

He also claimed that Nick only filed a restraining order so that Aaron would lose possession of his guns.


Aaron also referred to "being 5150'd" on Twitter, which refers to the California law code for the temporary and involuntary psychiatric commitment of individuals who present a danger to themselves or to others.

Aaron aired a lot of frustrations with this situation on Twitter.

He also wrote, "Restraining order says stay 100 feet away. It’s been thousands of miles for years. Using the court system to shake me down. Worked on some girls but won’t work on me. Good night all," referring to past legal troubles Nick faced.

Some fans have felt like this drama shouldn't have been aired out in public.

However, Aaron maintains that he's "feeling great and healthy," and also says, "I’ll be just fine without them. They need to leave me alone. Michael Jackson told me this was gonna happen and he was right."
