Aaron Carter says it all started with his parents’ divorce. On the day the preteen pop sensation brought MTV Cribs cameras through his family’s Florida Keys home, his parents announced they were splitting up—and they made Aaron choose a side.
Aaron was devastated. He fell into a deep depression, started overspending and began self-medicating with drugs. At his lowest point, he posted his phone number on social media so fans could reach out to him directly. That stunt, however, led to a phone call that put him on a new path. Here, he opens up about the ups and downs of his battle with drugs—and how he edged back from the brink.
