Former teen pop star Aaron Carter has given his first tearful interview after being arrested for driving under the influence and drug charges two days ago.
Talking to Entertainment Weekly after the 29-year-old and his girlfriend, Madison Parker, were arrested in Georgia on Saturday,
“A broken man… broken. Heartbroken. Four days of no sleep, guarding my girlfriend outside of her car. Making sure she was safe, driving all over the United States of America, trying to get to my radio shows. Doing the best that I can, trying to show up so people will not give up on me again. Cause they gave up on me.”
“I don’t need Nick’s help. I don’t need that. What I need is people to understand that I’m human and I make mistakes, just like any other human in this world.”
To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better.
