Wow! It has been quite the week so far and it’s only Monday! Since yesterday we have had singers sharing news about their sexuality, another celeb being accused of spreading unwanted diseases, and now a break-up. The internet has been flat lining all weekend. Ex-boy band singer Aaron Carter started things off yesterday when he decided to be open and honest with his fans.
The 29-year-old has had some bad publicity lately. A few weeks back Aaron and his girl, Madison Parker, were arrested in Atlanta, and Aaron was charged with driving under the influence. Aaron does not have a reputation of being a guy on the straight and narrow, but it seems after this recent arrest Aaron had some things on his mind.
So, yesterday Aaron took to Twitter to express himself to his fans and to get some heavy burdens off his chest. Carter revealed to his fans that since the age of 13 he has been attracted to both males and females. He also revealed that at age 17 he had his first relationship with a man.
You can read Aaron’s open letter to his fans below.
Now, reports have surfaced stating that Aaron and his girlfriend have split. According to reports, the couple officially split a few days before Aaron made his bisexual announcement.
According to Entertainment Tonight,
The 29-year-old singer split from his girlfriend, Madison Parker, last week, a source close to the couple tells ET.
“The split was very amicable,” the source says. “Aaron is continuing to focus on his personal self with regards to his truth, health and music.”
Interestingly enough, Carter told ET last month that he wanted to propose to Parker — whom he met on Instagram — in the future.
“I wanna be married. I wanna be engaged to my beautiful girlfriend, Madison,” he said of his plans in the coming years. “I wanna be a good father, a good role model, a strong role model.”
Parker also said that she saw “babies” with Carter in the future.
“Yeah we’re going to have lots of babies. I want daughters,” Carter added.
“And I want boys,” Parker replied.”
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think Aaron did the right thing about admitting his sexuality? Let me know in the comments.
