Aaron Carter’s Shocking Drug and Cosmetic Surgery Addiction Exposed
"I just want to get better"
Aaron Carter is finally ready to face his biggest demons.
The 29-year-old singer broke down into tears as he shockingly confessed to an addiction to cosmetic surgery and prescriptions drugs in a new teaser for The Doctors. In an emotional interview, the troubled pop star opens up about about his struggles and owns up to dabbling in illicit activities to get his fix.
Addressing his frail and gaunt appearance, which many allege has been caused by meth and crack cocaine use, Aaron says he’s become obsessed with going under the needle in order to look the part of successful celebrity.
“I get fillers. Restylane, Voluma, Rejuviderm. I get all three, and I’m going to continue doing it,” he reveals. “It makes me smile in the mirror.”
Though the beauty procedures do boost his self-esteem a little, Aaron believes he’s heading down a dark path with his obsession.
“I see a pretty good looking guy, I’m just skinny,” he shares as his smile fades. “And I just want to get better.”
To ease the pain, the former child star admits to taking numerous numbing drugs like Xanax and Oxycodone prescribed by his doctors. When he can’t get a valid prescription for the pills, Aaron says he will turn to the streets and buy them illegally from dealers.
Still, he insists he has his addiction under control having checked himself into rehab in 2011.
“I don’t mix medications, I do it to release stress of pain or angst,” he explains. “I have no problem telling exactly what it is.”
The “Candy” crooner adds, “The truth shall set your free and my father always said that.”
The news of Aaron’s addiction problems come hot on the heels of word that the once teen sensation has become completely estranged from his family. Apart from his mother, the younger sibling of Nick Carter is refusing to talk to any of his blood relatives.
“I only speak to my mother, and my mother and I are just fine,” he recently told TMZ. “I don’t speak to the rest of them.”
In July, Aaron publicly blasted his older brother and accused the Backstreet Boy of using Aaron’s DUI arrest in Georgia for publicity.
“If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?” he said in a statement. “That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin.”
