Aaron Carter slams older brother Nick Carter following DUI arrest: “That’s not cool to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down”

Aaron Carter, who was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, and possession of marijuana, has hit out at older brother Nick Carter for the way in which he handled the situation.

Former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter reached out to Aaron via a Twitter message – something which Aaron was NOT happy with…

“If my own blood truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum?” Aaron Carter said in a statement.

“That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin.”

As usual, there are two sides to every story. If we are to believe what Nick’s wife Lauren Tweeted, they were unable to reach him as he had changed his number, which is why they went through social media…

Nick’s wife, Lauren, Tweeted:

“Hey @aaroncarter have @itsmadisonp text me your new number since you changed it again!”

But the plot thickens.

Aaron’s rep, Jonathan Ward, doesn’t seem to buy Nick and Lauren’s story…

“Nick and Lauren have his number – it hasn’t changed,” Jonathan Ward said in an interview with People magazine.

“They last spoke on July 6. He doesn’t feel it was proper, what happened. You don’t reach out through Twitter.”

Let’s hope that Aaron and Nick can repair their brotherly bond.
