By: Celebuzz / January 23, 2011

Singer and former Dancing with the Stars contestant Aaron Carter has checked himself into rehab.

E! Online reports the 23-year-old younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter is seeking help with “addiction issues.” A source tells E! the singer is at a facility in Southern California and made the decision on his own, adding it was not “court mandated,” saying “He was struggling recently and needed this.”

The “Crush on You” singer, who has been romantically linked to Hilary Duff, Amanda Bynes, former Playboy Playmate Kari Ann Paniche and Lindsay Lohan, starred in the reality show House of Carters in 2006 alongside his brother and other family members. He also did a stint on Celebrity Rehab 2.

He reportedly suffered an overdose last December, but manager Johnny Wright shot down those rumors, telling E!, “Aaron Carter is alive and well at my compound in Orlando.”
