Nick Carter is afraid his baby brother might be going down the same path of substance abuse that he has in the past.
Following Aaron Carter’s arrest in Georgia over the weekend on suspicion of DUI and other drug-related charges, the Backstreet Boys singer shared a supportive message over Twitter on Sunday, saying he’s there for his brother should he ever want help.
Aaron, 29, responded directly to his brother through a statement posted Sunday night, accusing Nick, 37, of being insincere in his comments.
“If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin.”
Rather than directly reply to Aaron, Nick then shared a tweet from his wife, Lauren Kitt Carter, posted the night before, when Aaron was detained. In her tweet, Lauren asked Aaron to send his new number “since [he] changed it again.”
