Aaron Carter seems to be reconsidering some of the previous statements he made on social media regarding his older brother, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.
The two brothers have been embroiled in a very public feud, with Nick Carter announcing on social media that he and Aaron’s twin sister Angel had both requested restraining orders against their brother due to his “increasingly alarming behavior.” Aaron then responded to the order in a series of tweets, writing in one that he and his brother, who he said he hasn’t seen for four years, are “done for life,” and denying the allegations against him.
Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Aaron Carter explained in a tweet that’s since been deleted that he’d lashed out at his brother and said things that he didn't mean, 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.
Aaron Carter’s tweet was published one day after his brother and sister-in-law, Lauren Kitt, welcomed their second child, a baby girl, Us Weekly reports.
In Nick Carter’s request for a restraining order, he claimed that his little brother had admitted to their sister that he’s had thoughts about killing babies, as well as thoughts about killing Kitt, who was pregnant at the 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,” he reportedly wrote. “I am afraid he will listen to the voices in his head and cause harm to my family.”
A Las Vegas judge approved the temporary restraining order, ordering Aaron Carter to keep at least 100 feet away from Nick Carter and other members of his family, the outlet reports.
In another tweet on Thursday, Aaron Carter congratulated his brother on the new addition to their family but alleged that his siblings were working against him.
“I WISH THEM THE BEST AND TO BE LEFT IN PEACE ANGEL, NICK COREY, MAYBE WE CAN HAVE A discussion IN A FEW YEARS I NEED SOME TIME. WHAT THE THREE OF YOU HAVE DONE USING THE COURTS AGAINST ME IS NOT FAIR. WHITE FLAG WAVED!!!!” he wrote.
In another tweet, he reiterated his desire for privacy, writing, “I just need some space and time to heal from my family. So I ask that they give that to me. Thank you.”
During the weeks-long feud, Aaron Carter also made a number of allegations regarding sexual misconduct within his family, accusing his late sister Leslie of raping him multiple times as a child. He also claimed that Nick Carter once admitted to him to raping a 91-year-old woman.
In a series of social media posts on Wednesday, Aaron Carter fired back at media outlet Radar Online for publishing a story alleging that a pile of “suspicious” white powder could be seen in the background of one of his recent Instagram Live videos. The 31-year-old former child star accused the outlet of publishing lies, and took a drug test on camera, showing that his urine tested negative for amphetamines, cocaine, meth, MDMA, opiates, and PCP, but tested positive for THC, a mind-altering chemical found in marijuana.
