  • Aaron Carter, the singer best known for his teen pop and hip hop hits in the early 2000s, posted pictures of a new face tattoo he received Friday night, amid concerns for his mental health.

  • Less than two weeks ago, Carter's older siblings, including Nick Carter of the Backstreets Boys, announced they were taking out a restraining order against Aaron.

  • In a statement posted to Twitter, Nick said the restraining order was required "In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child."

  • Carter's family also encouraged him to seek "proper treatment." In an episode of "The Doctors" earlier in September, Carter said he has multiple-personality disorder, schizophrenia, and acute anxiety, which he takes multiple prescription medications for.

Less than two weeks ago, Aaron's brother Nick Carter, of the Backstreet Boys, posted a statement on Twitter that said the Carter siblings were taking out a restraining order against Aaron.

"In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family," Nick wrote in the statement, urging Aaron to seek "proper treatment."

Aaron posted his own statement to Twitter saying he feels "okay," and that he is thankful for the support from fans, but that everyone should "please leave me alone and let the legal system do their thing." Carter also noted that "I have never had thoughts of causing anyone pain, let alone taking anyone's life."

Nick tagged his post with #GunControl and #GunControlNow, in light of Carter's purchase in early September of a handgun, a rifle, and 300 rounds of hollow tip bullets, according to TMZ. Carter has since said that he gave up his guns, selling three and voluntarily giving two to police.

In his second appearance on "The Doctors" after his 2017 episode about extreme weight loss after mixing prescription opioids, Carter said earlier this month that he has multiple-personality disorder, schizophrenia, and acute anxiety. He says he takes six prescription medications.

"I'm manic depressive," Carter shared on the show. "I'm prescribed to Xanax, Seroquel, gabapentin, hydroxyzine, trazodone, omeprazole. This is my reality. Hi. I have nothing to hide."

In an interview with TMZ on Wednesday, Carter said he had given up his guns in light of the restraining order taken out by his brother, and also said that he was tapering himself off of Xanax with the help of medical professionals.
