The controversy started when they “I Want Candy” singer posted a video to Instagram live that pictured him with an English bulldog. "This is my new buddy. So by the way, if I can't keep him, I am going to be listing him… He's 10 months old, and he's running for $3,500." The puppy, Mighty, was rescued by Aaron at the Lancaster Animal Center in Los Angeles on August 2.

“I think it’s appalling that I actually even have to explain myself I’ve rescued many dogs & found many dogs homes. What I said in my Instagram live video was a joke. Find one dog that I adopted and sold for money, be my guest. WON’T HAPPEN.” He tweeted. “I’m a good person and I deserve respect.”

He added, “And with all due respect I own a home I make over $3 million a year I don’t need to sell a dog for money so have some respect and don’t try to slander my name because I will defend myself and I will take legal action. DON’T TRY IT. So back the f**k off... gn good night.” Whether Aaron will return the dog or ultimately sell Mighty is unclear.
