I’ve talked a bit about Aaron Carter recently. For those unfamiliar, he began his career as a pop singer as a preteen and, over the years, he’s faced some serious personal battles including the loss of his sister, Leslie, to a prescription drug overdose.
In recent years, Carter, who is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys member, Nick Carter, has lost a lot of weight and his gaunt appearance has led many to assume he’s taking illicit drugs, specifically meth. The singer has consistently denied these rumors and, during a recent appearance on The Doctors, he submitted to a drug test.
Clips of the episode, which airs on Thursday, show the 29-year-old musician breaking down in tears as he describes the criticism he’s faced for his appearance. He’s shocked, however, to discover that he really weighs just 115lbs now. “I didn’t realize I was 115 pounds. That is terrible,” he said, clearly shaken. “I wasn’t looking at myself in the mirror because I didn’t like the way I looked… I’m concerned about my overall health because people tell me I look like I have AIDs or I look like I have cancer or I look like I’m dying.”
Dr. Travis Stork then delivered some more interesting news – Carter tested negative for both cocaine and meth. He did, however, test positive for THC (the active ingredient in marijuana) and a variety of medications.
