Aaron Carter was admitted to rehab after he came “to the verge of death” earlier in the week.
Those close to him claimed that he
“threatened to take his own life multiple times in the past few weeks.“
A spokesperson for the musician confirmed that he was trying to get his life back on track saying,
“Aaron has decided to enter a facility to improve his health and work on his overall wellness. He is going to do this privately and focus all his attention on being the best person and performer possible. He is grateful for the support and love from his fans and looks forward to coming back stronger than ever before.”
Since coming out as bisexual earlier this year, Carter has had a rollercoaster journey as he split from his girlfriend and he revealed his struggles with drug abuse, cosmetic surgery addiction and his plummeting weight.
One report states the caller told police Carter was,
“not in a safe mental state… engaging in drug activity” and that he had “threatened to harm family and others.”
“Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
This social media stuff isn’t for me I’m taking a break from this shit.”
