Amid an ongoing feud with his family, including brother Nick Carter, and concerns about his mental health, singer Aaron Carter took to social media over the weekend to debut an intricate facial tattoo.
Aaron, 31, shared numerous photos on his Instagram page on Saturday showing off his new ink, which appears to be the image of a woman, possibly the greek goddess Medusa, that spans the side of his face and down his jaw, connecting with a neck tattoo and also stretching underneath his eye.
Alongside a shirtless photo debuting his new tattoo, Aaron wrote, “IM THE BIGGEST THING IN MUSIC RIGHT NOW. I CANT BE DENIED. FACT CHECK ME.”
Aaron has made headlines in recent weeks after his brother, Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter, announced on social media earlier this month that he and Aaron sister’s Angel had both sought out restraining orders against their brother due to his alleged “increasingly alarming behavior.” Nick went on to allege in court documents that Aaron admitted to their sister that he’d had thoughts about killing babies, as well as killing Nick's pregnant wife, Lauren Kitt.
“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 in the filing. “I am afraid he will listen to the voices in his head and cause harm to my family.”
A judge ruled that Aaron maintain 100 feet of distance between himself and his brother, as well as other members of the Carter family, according to E! News. Still, Aaron has steadfastly denied his brother’s claims, writing in one tweet, “I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family.”
He went on to make a number of shocking claims on social media, including alleging that his brother once admitted to raping a 91-year-old woman. He also alleged that his late sister Leslie sexually assaulted him as a child multiple times.
The protective order comes after news that authorities performed a wellness check at Aaron’s home earlier this month with the goal of placing him under an involuntary psychiatric hold. Although that ultimately did not pan out, the singer told TMZ last week that he willingly got rid of the firearms in his home by either selling them or surrendering them to the proper authorities. He also suggested that he is working on his mental health, telling the outlet that he’d “tapered off of Xanax” over the course of several days.
In addition to premiering his new body art on Saturday, Aaron Carter took to Twitter to again insist that he’s “doing just fine.”
“I ask you to respect me & leave me alone. I already have to move and I don’t need to be under scrutiny with every decision I make. I will take the necessary precautions to protect myself, and when I move no one will know where I live!” he wrote, before adding the hashtag, “MissingMyMom.”
