Aaron Carter insists that he is not suffering from a mental breakdown after expressing his distress over a relationship on Twitter.
It all started when the 28-year-old singer, who became a pop music sensation in the late 1990s, shared a link to an emotional note about an unidentified person on Sunday. (The original tweet featuring the link has since been deleted.)
“Has anyone ever had their heartbroken so bad that they feel it in other parts of their body? like cold feelings in your stomach, emptiness?” asked Carter, the brother of Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter.
He continued, “Love is the toughest thing I deal with in my life. I’m constantly misunderstood and judged for my past, I’m a really sensitive guy and yes jealous and insecure at times cause I know I’m a skinny dude all of the anxiety stuff …”
At the time, Carter was “sitting on this plane” feeling “completely devestated” with a “shattered heart.” He mentioned that he tries to “hide” his emotions “all the time,” and instead expresses himself through “subliminal messages.” He added, “I don’t want to seem too emotional but you guys have literally been such an amazing support group for me.”
The former child star vented his frustrations over the relationship, telling his followers, “You should never be with someone who tells you to ‘shut the f— up’ because your annoyed cause you couldn’t talk to them for 7 hours when Im NOT even being disrespectful myself, You should never be w someone who hangs up on you and leaves you feeling unsettled or unresolved all because they’re too immature to handle confrontation like an adult. OR Someone who doesn’t care about posting a picture with you for your anniversary or hiding me to your friends and family for months at a time because of judgment passed on me.”
He concluded the letter by writing, “I’m sick of it. God please show me someone who will love me for the man I am now and show her to me I will cherish her I swear to you. You know who you are. You broke my heart.”
As news of Carter’s open letter made headlines, the singer took to Twitter early Monday morning to explain his stream of consciousness.
In his first tweet, Carter wrote, “Everything i say gets so twisted and judged by many people all the time, it’s outlandish. love is everything i stand for as well as…”
He continued in a second tweet, “expressing myself and being as open as i can with myself, i get judged on a daily and that’s OK this is my life and my feelings.”
Then Carter clarified that his messages were not a cry for help, tweeting, “Theres no reason for people to accuse me of having ‘mental breakdowns’ because i express myself & yea sometimes people piss me off.”
“Expressing yourself is a great thing to do, for ME, it allows me to vent and be myself, with my music too as well as everything i stand for,” Carer wrote in his fourth tweet.
Carter later replied to a series of supportive messages from his fans and pointed out that he has many positive developments in his life, including his new single “Fool’s Gold.”
“I’m actually really excited about what the future has to bring a lot of time learning how to produce now I have a great team around me,” he wrote on Monday.
The following day, Carter switched up the conversation by posting a photo of his butt. The image shows him standing on a balcony in Malibu, California, sans underwear.
This isn’t the first time Carter’s tweets have gone viral. In March 2014, he revealed his affection for [CELEBRITY_LINK” “” “” “0” ], whom he dated in the early 2000s.
He tweeted in part, “I’ll spend the rest of my life trying to better myself to get back to her. I don’t care what ANY of you think.”
