Aaron Carter and Nick Carter have a lot of things in common: they’re heartthrobs in the 90s, blonde, and are famous singers.
Aaron became a very successful rapper before he was even old enough to drive, while Nick was a member of the iconic boyband Backstreet Boys.
Their similarities, along with the obvious fact that both superstars have the same last name, made people wonder whether or not they’re related.
So, in this article, let us explore that topic and find out if Aaron Carter and Nick Carter are actually related.
Nick Carter and Aaron Carter: The Popstar Bros
Nick Carter is, indeed, the older brother of Aaron Carter. Their parents are Robert Gene Carter and Jane Elizabeth Carter. The Carter brothers also have four other siblings together, namely:
- Leslie Carter
- Angel Carter
- Taelyn Dobson
- Bobbie Jean Carter
- Kaden Brent Carter
Together, they make up the star-studded Carter Family – comparable to that of the Kardashians, although we’re not sure if they’re just as wild.
Nevertheless, they also had their own reality show called House of Carters. The show lasted only one season, though, due to a series of chaos brought down upon the family.
In fact, viewers of the show quickly realized that Aaron and Nick had a very complicated relationship. The brothers did not always agree with each other, and there have been several instances when they got into a physical altercation.

Aaron Carter and Nick Carter’s Messy Brotherhood: A Brief Summary
Aaron and Nick have had their own fair share of controversies as individuals. But if you put them together in one headline, you best believe something horrid has occurred.
In fact, the only less violent issues that ever happened between Aaron and Nick are the ones where either of them was absent while the other one was present in a very significant event such as family weddings.
Outside of that, Nick and Carter have had many serious fights – some of them even go as far as physical abuse and violent threats. (Trigger warning: the subsequent content may contain situations that may be upsetting to you. Continue at your own discretion.)
Here’s a brief list of all the times Nick and Aaron had been involved in disturbing brotherly drama:
- Aaron threw some shade at Nick during an interview with GQ in 2016 by saying: “When [Nick] was 18 years old, he was out of the house. Didn’t take care of the family. I started when I was 7 years old, and I was a provider for my family, too.”
- In 2019, Aaron posted a clip taken from House of Carters which featured him and Nick getting into a very heated argument. He uploaded it with the caption: “LEAVE ME ALONE. FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. IM BEGGING YOU. PLEASE. I haven’t even seen you guys and nick you bullied me my whole life. And tortured me as a child. And everyone knows it. ITS BEEN PUBLIC. and now you’re scared of the truth.”
- Nick, together with Aaron’s twin sister Angel, filed a restraining order against Aaron in 2019. He claimed that Aaron confessed that “he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child.” On the other hand, Aaron denies his brother’s allegations and that he was hurt by Nick’s words.
Of course, there are still a lot of things that we haven’t included in the list, such as the time Aaron accused Nick of being guilty of sexual assault and that he only pretends to be concerned about Aaron’s mental health problems as a PR stunt.
Although Aaron has maintained that he and Nick are “done for good”, do you think the Carter brothers still have a shot at reconcilation? Let us know in the comments section below.
