Former Dancing With the Stars contestant Aaron Carter has entered a private rehab facility in Southern California to deal with addiction issues according to E!
The 23-year-old is taking time away from working on an album and a show in Florida. His manager, Johnny Wright said in a statement, “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. 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.”
The brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter was arrested in 2008 in Texas for investigation of marijuana possession and in 2009 it was revealed he owed more $1 million in back taxes.
