Aaron Carter has had a busy 2017. He feared a terrorist attack at L.A.’s Gay Pride festival, he was arrested at an AutoZone, he came out as bisexual, and after realizing he was in a bad place, he checked into rehab. And two weeks later, he’s outta there.
On Septmber 22, Aaron checked himself into rehab after tweeting this:
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) September 22, 2017
At the time, his publicist told People he was working on his overall wellness and health, which is a good thing. In September, he ended up on The Doctors, where the panel may have given a stern warning for him to go to rehab. Aaron had been concerned he might be HIV-positive and said he was dealing with major shit like grieving the loss of his sister and father. He wasn’t HIV-positive, but he did clock in at a mere 115 pounds even though he’s six feet tall! He also tested positive for weed, opiates, and benzos.
While some may raise their eyebrows at Aaron leaving rehab after only two weeks, his publicist said he’s continuing to work on himself:
“Aaron has left the facility where he has been working on his wellness. Several legal and personal matters arose that required his immediate and in-person attention. He is still very much committed to his wellness and will be continually working toward being the best person possible.”
A source told Us Weekly Aaron had started to gain some healthy weight back and did really well, but a pressing financial matter in Florida needed his attention. Considering he paid for his Walmart bill in fan autographs a few months ago, I’m not exactly shocked. But can’t an open tab at the turkey leg cart at Disney World (or wherever his financial problem is) wait so he can fully learn how to have Aaron’s (sober) Party?
