Aaron Carter Hospitalised Amid Mental Health Struggles
Aaron Carter has been treated in a hospital in Florida following his public struggle with mental health issues.
The 31 year old had fans concern when he uploaded an image to Instagram which showed the former child star in a hospital bed hooked up to an IV, along with the caption, "Mommas gonna take care of me."
According to E! News, the singer had been admitted as he was "exhausted from a hectic schedule and needs rest for a few days."
Just hours beforehand, Carter had also posted a throwback snap of himself performing on stage and reference the return of his mum -- Jane Carter -- as his manager, after she had previously overseen his and brother Nick Carter's musical careers.
"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - My Mom is back. #Manager," he wrote.
The news comes following Carter speaking out about his ongoing struggles with his mental health, with the star claiming he suffers from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety and manic depression.
He has also been engaged in an ongoing feud with twin sister Angel, as well as Nick, with Nick claiming Aaron had told him he'd thought about killing his pregnant wife and unborn child. Nick posted a statement referring to the matter over Twitter, which read:
"After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today. In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behaviour and his recent confession that he harbours thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take away 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," he concluded.
During an appearance of WE tv's Marriage Boot Camp: Family Edition, Aaron discussed the guilt he feels over the deaths of his sister Leslie, who died at age 25 in 2012 from a prescription drug overdose, and father Bob Carter, who died in 2017.
"I felt like I'd been responsible for the death of my sister, for the death of my dad, for my family falling apart," Aaron told the show's counsellors.
"I think that's one of the things that hurts Aaron the most, he just was so busy with his own life that he wasn't there, and I think he wanted to be there for them," Jane said. "In his heart, he feels like he could've done something more."
