Does the name Aaron Carter ring a bell? If it does, then you’re probably a certified 90s fangirl. Indeed, Aaron was one of the most popular teen stars during his time.
His catchy hit songs such as I Want Candy, I’m All About You, and Aaron’s Party dominated the music charts, and his iconic 90s heartthrob look captured the hearts of many girls around the world.
But if you’re not familiar with Aaron Carter, that’s perfectly fine. We don’t really hear his name in the tabloids anymore. Still, if you want to get to know him, make sure to keep reading!
How Old is Aaron Carter?
Aaron Charles Carter was born on December 7, 1987, in Tampa, Florida. He has a twin sister named Angel. They are both the youngest in his family, excluding his half-siblings.
Aaron has always been passionate about music ever since he was young. In fact, at age seven, he was already the lead singer of a band called ‘Dead End’.
And when he was nine, he opened for the Backstreet Boys which ultimately paved the way for him to become one of the highest-selling young artists of his time.
He sold millions of copies with his debut album alone. And by the age of 13, he was already appearing in popular TV shows in Nickelodeon and Disney, such as Lizzie Maguire and 48 Hours Mystery.
Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worst for Aaron when he grew older. He was faced with family conflicts, legal problems, mental health issues, and financial troubles.
How Tall is Aaron Carter?
The exact measurements of Aaron Carter’s height differ from source to source. Some list him as 6ft tall, while others claim that he’s only 5ft8in.
To make things even more confusing, Aaron himself seems to change his height every time he’s asked about it. During an interview with Yahoo, he stated that he was 5ft9 or 175cm. But only recently, he disclosed that he’s actually 6ft1 or 185cm. Here’s what he said in full script:
“I’m really excited to be fighting Lamar Odom. This is a crazy match-up. I mean it’s like David and Goliath. He’s six foot seven, I’m six-one so it’s going to be kind of crazy.”
So, what’s his actual height? Well, he was once measured barefoot, which was live-streamed by Aaron himself. Based on that, it would appear that Aaron Carter’s real height is 5ft8in or 172.7cm.
Meet the Carter Family: Aaron Carter’s Siblings and Parents
The Carter Family is a celebrity on its own. It’s filled with superstars, talented singers, and successful entrepreneurs in the entertainment industry. As it stands, Aaron Carter has four biological siblings, two half-siblings, and one stepsister. They are as follows:
- Nick Carter
- Leslie Carter
- Bobbie Jean Carter
- Angel Carter
- Virginia Marie Carter
- Kaden Brent Carter
- Taelyn Dobson
It is a well-known fact in the industry that the Carter siblings have a very complicated relationship. In fact, Nick and Angel even filed a restraining order against Aaron. The Backstreet Boys superstar took to Twitter to explain why he and his sister felt the need to do so:
“In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour and his recent confession that he harbors 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. We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else.”
On the other hand, Aaron’s relationship with his parents isn’t any better too. According to the singer, his father, Robert Gene Carter, and mother, Jane Elizabeth Carter, mishandled his earnings which cost him millions of dollars. He even owed $1.3million in taxes when he was only 16 years old. Aaron’s late father responded to these claims saying:
“It’s not true; I don’t live off Aaron’s money.”
Needless to say, the Carter Family might have to seek therapy to mend all these broken bonds.
Is Aaron Carter Gay?
Questions about Aaron Carter’s sexuality began when the rapper unexpectedly posted a very heartfelt message to his fans via Twitter. He stated:
“I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive. 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.”
Following this tweet, Aaron went on to do a series of interviews wherein he confirmed his bisexuality. In a podcast, Aaron said:
“I definitely embrace my bisexuality and, you know, it’s still new to me because I just started talking about it, really. But it’s my personal life too. Whether I choose to be with a man or a woman — that’s my decision. And I don’t know, we’ll see.”
But then, a year later, Aaron seemed to contradict his own statements. In an interview with Hollywood Life, Aaron clarified what he meant when he first came out:
“It was more so just a story that happened when I was like 17 with somebody, and I can find men and women attractive, but when it comes down to it, I think it was a little misconstrued. I see myself being with a woman and having kids. I want to have a family. I keep telling people that. I don’t want it to be misconstrued too much just because I was open about a story.”
Regardless of Aaron Carter’s true sexuality, he deserves to be respected as a human being. Besides, who he wants to date and love is just a part of his identity. There’s more to Aaron Carter than his gender orientation, you know.
