Police called to Aaron Carter's house


Police were called to Aaron Carter's house amid fears he had taken an overdose.

The 'I Want Candy' hitmaker - who has been locked in a feud with various members of his family over the last few months - was visited by officers on Wednesday (18.12.19) shortly after 8pm after emergency services were called by someone concerned for the star's welfare.

Just before the call was made, Aaron was doing a livestream with fans but fell asleep midway through, prompting concerned viewers to alert authorities.

When police arrived, they made their way to the bedroom after no one answered the door and quickly determined he was fine and had just nodded off.

The 32-year-old singer told TMZ first responders had asked him if he was suicidal, had taken any pills or threatened to harm himself but he insisted that wasn't the case.

He also plans to ask police to foot the bill to fix his door after they broke it down to get to him.

Last month, Aaron was the subject of a one-year restraining order taken out by his older brother, Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, who alleged he had threatened to kill his wife, Lauren Kitt.

As a result, the 'Crazy Little Party Girl' singer - whose sister Angel also previously filed for a restraining order - vowed to "stay away" from his family for a while.

In an Instagram video, he said: "I just got to my location. Super tired, long drive. It's vacation time, I'm gonna go skiing by myself. Basically, after everything that's happened with the court stuff and everything, you know, I just want to stay away from my family for a while."

Aaron had previously responded to deny his brother's claims he threatened his family.

In a statement, he wrote: "I have never had thoughts of causing anyone pain, let alone taking anyone's life. It was hurtful for me to read those things because if these people really knew me, they would have never used that as a tactic to control me.

"What's actually more hurtful though, is knowing how effected my innocent nieces and nephews will be by choices the adults around them have made. With that in mind, I ask everyone to please leave me alone and let the legal system do their thing. (sic)"
