Just one day after Aaron Carter’s sister was granted a one-year restraining order against him, his brother, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, had a judge agree to his own request.
A Las Vegas judge agreed during a hearing on Wednesday to grant the one-year restraining order, which will remain in effect until November of next year, TMZ reports. While Nick Carter attended the hearing, his brother did not, according to the outlet.
Aaron seemed to respond to Wednesday’s ruling in a tweet on Wednesday, writing, “Duped my bro gave him a sleepless night Thinking he would have to face his accuser Melissa. My legal team and I was thrilled I don’t have to talk to them for a year.”
Nick’s order of protection comes on the heels of the protective order Aaron’s twin sister Angel was granted on Tuesday. At a hearing in a Los Angeles court, a judge ruled that Aaron, 31, keep 100 feet away from his sister, as well as from her husband, Corey Conrad, the couple’s home, and their place of business, Entertainment Tonight reports, citing court documents. Aaron was also ordered to refrain from harassing the couple in any way.
That order is in place until Nov. 19, 2020, and Aaron will be unable to own a firearm during that time frame, a fact that he took offense to during the hearing. The judge told Aaron that he was too dangerous to own a gun, at which point Aaron responded by shouting and saying that he’d travel to another state to purchase firearms, according to TMZ.
Following the hearing, Aaron addressed his sister’s case against him in his Instagram story, accusing her of lying in order to prevent him from owning guns.
“I am devastated by what happened in court today,” he wrote. “My sister lied over and over in an effort to take away my 2nd Amendment rights and she did it on behalf of my brother to silence me talking about how he raped and sexually assaulted multiple women. I will abide by the judge's order, but I will not stop speaking on behalf of victims such as Melissa Schuman. I am saddened by my family and what they have done to me. Your lies have broken my heart.”
Aaron and his siblings have been publicly feuding for a number of months, with Nick revealing on Twitter in September that he and Angel had been forced to seek orders of protection because of Aaron’s “increasingly alarming behavior.”
Nick claimed in court documents requesting the temporary order that his brother admitted during a conversation with their sister that he’d had thoughts about killing babies, and had also had thoughts about killing Nick’s wife, who was pregnant at that time, according to E! News.
“I need an injunction because I fear for my safety, the safety of my wife and children, and the safety of my wife's parents,” Nick wrote. “I am afraid he will listen to the voices in his head and cause harm to my family.”
Aaron has repeatedly denied his family’s claims and has fired back with allegations of his own. He claimed that his brother once admitted to him that he’d raped an elderly woman, and he also claimed that Nick’s legal actions against him were a form of retaliation that his brother devised as punishment for Aaron’s decision to have contact with Melissa Schuman, a singer who accused Nick in 2017 of having raped her years prior, during a small gathering at his house in 2002. Nick denied the claims, stating that their sexual contact was consensual, and the case was ultimately dropped due to the statute of limitations having run out, according to BBC News.
In a tweet that has since been deleted, Aaron said last month that his brother's lack of involvement in his life caused him to lash out, Yahoo News reports.
“I’ve been very hurt by the fact that my big brother has not made an effort to be part of my life for a long time so therefore I lashed out & said some hurtful things I did not mean to say I love my brother I love my family and all I want is peace and love for everybody,” the tweet read.
