Aaron Carter's ex-girlfriend Madison Parker broke up with him recently over his bisexuality, the pop singer said Wednesday.
"I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend, and she didn't really understand it and she didn't want [to]," Carter said on "The Bert Show", just days after revealing his sexuality to his fans over the weekend. "And that was it. So we left it mutual and parted ways."
"I'm a single guy again, recently came out as bisexual, so that's who I am. And I'm just taking it one minute, and one day, and one comment at a time," he said. "All I can say is that I'm really looking forward to the future right now, and whether I choose to be with a man or a woman is my decision, and no one else's."
Carter also told the radio show hosts that he knew he was bisexual when he was 12 years old, but didn’t explore the option until he was 17, when he had "a small relationship" with a man.
But why now?
"It was something that I just felt like was important and I needed to say. It was a part of a new chapter of turning 30, on December 7 this year," he said.
"The process is at your own pace and when you feel comfortable," he continued. "There might be a lot of people who don’t agree with it, but you might be surprised by the people who do. I was shocked. I was blown away. My fans know that I’m a heart on the sleeve kinda guy. That’s the way I am."
The interview also brought up his rocky relationship with his boy band brother Nick Carter, which was highlighted after Nick tweeted at his brother that he is “willing to help you get better” after Aaron was arrested on a DUI and marijuana charges last month.
Aaron publicly trolled back writing, "If my own blood truly care 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?"
But now the brother’s are apparently "good."
"It’s hard to get along when you’re both doing the same thing," he said on the radio program. "I have my own fans, Nick has his own fans. We’re good. Nick and I are good. I love my brother, and we’re good. There’s a lot of love there, don’t get it twisted."
