Aaron Carter Talks About How He Became Addicted to Opioids

For years, people have speculated on the health on Aaron Carter, many wondering if he had a life altering disease. News came out that the artist suffered from an opioid addiction and now the singer is opening up about that. The 31-year-old artist recently sat down for E! True Hollywood Story to explain how he initially got hooked on the pills, stating that it all began with a doctor prescription after getting into a fight and breaking his jaw.

“The show always must go on,” Aaron said. “I had to take a painkiller to even sing. But I did find myself, OK, healed from the jaw and still taking the medication.”

“Everybody thought, ‘Oh my god, he has AIDS, he’s a crackhead, he’s a methhead,'” he stated. “That’s when I realized, OK, either you get your sh** together or you make the decision to slowly die.”

Last year, the former child star sat down with E! to reveal that he’d quit taking the opioids.

“Stopped all of it,” he said. “Even when I got out of treatment, they had me on certain things, and I stopped all of it. I didn’t want to be on anything.”

However, it appears he is still dealing with health issues as the singer recently posted a photo to his Instagram of him in a hospital bed hooked up to an IV.

“Mommas gonna take care of you,” he captioned the shot, referencing his recent professional reconciliation with his mother/early career manager, Jane Carter.
