Who is Aaron Carter?
Like his partner in the ring, Aaron Carter has faced his own fair share of demons. After bursting on the scene in his childhood as a solo pop artist, Carter has spent the majority of his life in the public eye. He is, of course, the younger brother of Nick Carter of The Backstreet Boys.
In 1997 his first solo album Aaron Carter was released, achieving 5x platinum status. 2000’s follow-up album, Aaron’s Party, really put him on the scene, with “I Want Candy”, “Bounce”, and “That’s How I Beat Shaq” serving as major hits. By the time he was 20 years old, Carter had released six studio albums, including a pair of compilation albums. According to People Magazine in 2017, the artist had a number of legal issues including “an alleged DUI and drug possession.” The article cites since-deleted tweets where he is said to have claimed to have had an eating disorder as well, dropping as low as 115 pounds.
