By the time he sat for a tearful TV interview on July 18 , Aaron Carter had had a very bad few days.
Arrested in Georgia on July 15 for alleged DUI and marijuana possession, the singer denied he was under the influence but rambled about a host of other problems:
Fear of flying post-9/11 ,hiatal hernia pain (which is why he claimed he doesn’t drink), anxiety and an eating disorder (which he treats with medical marijuana).
Forget help from big bro Nick Carter, he said, slamming Nick’s two tweets offering support.
“Why wouldn’t he call me directly […] instead of making this about him through a public forum?” he asked.
Fans and friends are shocked: “Aaron insists he doesn’t need help,” says a source, “but he’s struggling. People are really worried.”
