Although he has always maintained a thin frame, it’s no secret that Aaron Carter is looking even skinnier than usual these days.
And the 29-year-old popstar wants us all to know the real reason behind his dramatic weight loss, so people can stop asking him about it and so he can set the record straight once and for all…
“By the way y’all wanna know why I’m so skinny? It’s because @ 19 i was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, I didn’t choose that,” Aaron wrote on Twitter yesterday.
“Be kind to me.. It’s a terrible stress condition that affects me having an appetite and I’m sorry this is the way I am.
“Basically I have an eating disorder.”
A quick Google search taught us that hiatal hernia is a condition that allows acid to enter the oesophagus, and symptoms include heartburn, problems swallowing and a dry cough. It’s thought that many hiatal hernia sufferers lose weight because they are afraid to eat.
“I’m sorry, sometimes I really wish I did look better, or I eat more like y’all say, this life doesn’t come w much stability…..” he continued.
“If you don’t believe me, ask my brother he was there when I was 19 diagnosed. It’s a stress eating disorder, I’m sorry I didn’t choose this.
“No I don’t do drugs, yes I feel pain, I haven’t stopped working since I was 7 years old. 22 years later and I still won’t give up.
“Any of my fans who I let down or made them embarrassed to be my fans anymore I’m so sorry. I will never stop trying to win your hearts back.
“All things done in the dark always come to light. I might not be exactly where I want to be but I’m doing much better than I was before … Goodnight.”
