Nick Carter gets a restraining order against brother Aaron as concerns grow over his mental health
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been given a temporary restraining order against his younger brother Aaron. It comes after he allegedly threatened to kill Nick’s pregnant wife.
The singer, 39 said the restraining order came “in light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour.”
Aaron, 31 must stay at least 30 metres away from Nick and his family and their home in Las Vegas.
Former child star, Aaron said he was “astounded” by the accusations. And said: “I do not wish to harm anyone, especially my family.”
“After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron,” Nick Carter said.
“In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour and his recent confessions that he harbours thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family.
Take care. @nickcarter we’re done for life.

“We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else,” Nick continued.
Aaron rose to fame in the late 90s as a child pop star. And has a history of drug convictions and mental health issues. He acknowledged the restraining order on social media but denied threatening behaviour.
He recently said he suffers from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression. But later said he did not have any mental health issues. And claimed the TV show had been edited to make it look like he did. The show’s producers deny his claims.
