The ongoing battle between pop star brothers Nick and Aaron Carter came to head on Sunday, when Aaron took to social media to accuse Nick of raping a 91-year-old woman.
Aaron, who unleashed a storm of criticism after Nick sought a restraining order against him, made the accusation on Instagram. The 31-year-old singer posted a clip from the family's 2006 reality show, “House of Carters,” which shows the brothers in the midst of an intense argument. He wrote in the caption that his brother admitted to the horrible deed, and Aaron urged the FBI to get involved.
“Hey @fbi my brother raped Mildred and told me in confidence in his pick up truck she was 91 years old and my brother told me he covered her mouth so no one could hear her scream,” his post reads. “Put me on a polygraph machine please @fbi my mother knows she was taking care of two elderly women who were on hospice Mildred and opal who my mother was keeping alive. @fbi what are you gonna do about that!? NOTHING! ? I’m REPORTING A RAPE FROM NICK ON SN ELDERLY WOMEN WHO WAS DYING AND WAS 91 that he raped. Strap nick up to a polygraph machine and a really good one please.”
The public feud started last week when Nick, 39, announced on Twitter that he and Aaron’s twin sister, Angel, were seeking restraining orders against Aaron due to their brother’s “increasingly alarming behavior.”
“After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron,” read his statement. “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.”
Subsequent reports revealed that in the court filing, Nick claimed Aaron had admitted to Angel that he had thoughts about “killing babies” and Nick’s pregnant wife, Lauren Kitt. This led Nick to fear for the safety of his family.
Aaron confirmed on Twitter that he had been served the order, and he denied the allegations against him.
“I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family,” he wrote in one post.
Aaron claimed that his brother filed the order against him as retaliation for his decision to speak with singer Melissa Schuman, a former member of the pop group Dream who accused Nick of raping her during a party at his apartment in 2002. (Nick denied the claims, and the case was dismissed last year because the statute of limitations expired.)
Aaron’s mental health and his alleged collection of firearms has been a recurring topic in the brothers' feud. In his request, Nick claimed Aaron admitted to being diagnosed with various mental illnesses.
“I am afraid he will listen to the voices in his head and cause harm to my family,” Nick wrote.
In a recent episode of “The Doctors,” Aaron opened up about being diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety, and manic depression, but he has since denied it. He wrote in one tweet that he has never been diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
Additionally, during an Instagram Live video on Friday, Aaron posed with what appeared to be an assault rifle and threatened to “kill everybody,” which sparked more concern from his brother, according to MSN.
“Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?” he said. “The difference is, it’s 2020 almost. And I’m Maximus. So don’t imprison me and expect me not to fight back and kill everybody."
He then referenced his “dark sense of humor.”
Blogger Perez Hilton retweeted the clip Saturday, asking for authorities to step in and confiscate Aaron’s guns. Nick added a response of his own, writing, “I am truly now afraid for my family’s safety.”
On Sunday evening, Aaron published a lengthy Instagram post stating that all he wants is “unconditional love,” and that he has never “had thoughts of causing anyone pain, let alone taking anyone’s life.”
