Aaron Carter, brother of Backstreet Boys singer, Nick Carter, took to Twitter over the weekend to announce he is bisexual.
According to Time, in a tweet posted on Saturday, Carter said , “This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me.”
He said since he was a teenager he was attracted to both sexes but hadn’t fully experienced a homosexual experience until he was 17.
The following morning, Carter’s tweet had received much support. He tweeted he was overwhelmed with the outpouring of support.
The news comes following his recent split from girlfriend Madison Parker.
Aaron had a mainstream pop hit in 2000 called “I Want Candy”.
He’s been in the news more recently for his odd behavior; he was arrested in July for suspicion of DUI.
He ended up being charged for DUI as well as possession of marijuana.
