It seems like overnight, Aaron Carter has made a resurrection into mainstream media like never before. With his drop of his new EP LØVË, his emotional interview on his struggles with an eating disorder, and now his open and honest letter on his sexuality, we're getting to see a different side of Aaron altogether.
For those not following the story, Aaron and his girlfriend Madison Parker split last week, only a month after the couple sat down with Entertainment Tonight expressing the desire to get married. Aaron said to ET “I wanna be married. I wanna be engaged to my beautiful girlfriend, Madison. I wanna be a good father, a good role model, a strong role model.”
However, according to a statement made by his rep to People, “Aaron and Madison love each other and respect one another dearly... It was a mutual decision and Aaron’s personal statement released speaks for itself. Now back to the music.”
Then over the weekend, Aaron took to his Twitter account to write an emotional and honest public letter to his fans about his sexuality. The Fool Gold singer revealed that "when [he] was around 13 years old [he] started to find boys and girls attractive".
He follows that statement by saying, "There were years that went by that I thought about, but it wasn’t until I was 17 years old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with”.
What was Aaron's motivation for revealing the intimate details? He claimed that it was something that had been weighing on his chest for nearly half of his life and that he would now like to have the weight lifted off of him.
Aaron's revelation was met with an outpouring of love, and the singer was so moved that he took to Twitter again to thank all his well wisher.
And how is ex-Madison Parker taking the news? Well, we think her newest IG post speaks for itself. She uploaded a gorgeous selfie captioned Thriving.
Regardless, we wish both Aaron and Madison the best!
