Is Aaron Carter moving to Canada?
Amid the ongoing public feud with his family, the pop star surprised fans over the weekend by announcing his impending move to a private island in Nova Scotia. The 31-year-old singer has been at odds with his older brother, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, since last month, when the elder Carter brother announced that he’d gotten a restraining order against Aaron. But Aaron just took a break from tweeting about that situation, instead announcing on Saturday that he’d be moving out of the country.
“So I’m about to get a rental car and drive a few hours to go see my new home,” he wrote in one tweet, later adding that Nova Scotia is “one of [his] favorite places in the world.”
In another tweet, Aaron said he’d already purchased a new home for himself: “At this time I ask you all to respect that I need a change of scenery for my life and I can enjoy my accolades in solidarity whilst maintaining my career and making music 24/7.”
He went on to share a photo of a secluded house on an island early Sunday and suggested that he’d purchased both the home and the private island on which it's located.
“I just purchased this 7 million dollar Island In Kaulbach Island in Halifax. Good luck finding me. These waters get cold. I put 1.5 million down to get away from the drama and make my music. I love you all. #WeAreTheWorld,” he wrote.
The island of Kaulbach was put up for sale last year for £5 million, but the price later dropped to £3.5 million, according to Metro, a UK-based publication. That equals to around 4.3 million in American dollars.
Aaron has denied claims that he’s pranking his fans and has implied that American politics played a role in his decision, writing in one tweet that he does not support President Donald Trump. In another tweet, he suggested that he’s been treated badly, writing, “I hope Canada welcomes me and doesn’t treat me the way people do in America it’s really foul I had to get out and I moved quick. Pun intended.”
Aaron also talked about his move on Instagram, posting a photo of himself standing outside of a large house and writing in the caption that he’d just bought a “castle.”
“I just Purchased my first ESTATE ITS A FUCKING CASTLE,” his caption reads. “It’s 9,000 square feet and 8 bedrooms a REC ROOM, THOT TUB, a STUDY a fire place in every room. It comes with free maple syrup 4Life maple on tap.”
Aaron has continued to make headlines over the last few weeks. His brother Nick claimed in court documents that Aaron admitted to their sister that he’s had thoughts about killing babies, as well as thoughts about killing Nick’s wife, Lauren Kitt, who was pregnant at the time. A judge granted the request and ordered Aaron to keep at least 100 feet away from Nick and his family, according to E! News.
Aaron denied his brother’s claim, writing on Twitter, “I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family.”
“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 reportedly read.
