Aaron Carter checks out of rehab after dealing with 'emotional and spiritual issues'
Aaron Carter, a singer and brother of Nick Carter of the pop group the Backstreet Boys has checked out of the Betty Ford Center after receiving a month of treatment, his spokesperson confirmed to E! News.
Carter is reportedly back in his native Florida and working on a new album. "The music & fans is why I continue to work hard," Carter wrote on his Twitter page Friday. "And I am fortunate enough to be able to give back to people who deserve it because of it!"
"Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with," Carter's spokesperson told the website last month when asked why Carter needed to go to rehab. "Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he's about to take."
Aaron Carter rose to fame as a child with the 1997 hit "Crush on You." He later went on to release four studio albums and also appeared on shows such as "7th Heaven" and "Popstar." He was also a contestant on ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" in 2009 and appeared with his brother and three sisters in the reality show "House of Carters" in 2006.
