Aaron Carter Comes Out As Bisexual On Twitter

"This doesn’t bring me shame."

Aaron Carter addressed his sexual identity Saturday night in an emotional social media post directed to his fans.

“There’s something I’d like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life,” writes the 29-year-old singer and younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter. “This doesn’t bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me.”

“I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive,” Carter continues. “There were years that went by that I thought about, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with.”

“I never want to be a figure of disappointment,” he concludes, summing up his letter with a Boy George quote: “I’ve never felt as though I didn’t belong, I just acted as though I did.”

Billboard confirms “that the letter serves as Carter’s coming out as bisexual.”

Carter responded to body-shamers earlier this year when he tweeted about his eating disorder, which he claims is related to stress and a hiatal hernia. He also opened up last month in an interview with ET about his recent drug-related arrest with current girlfriend Madison Parker.

Last year, not long after playfully flirting with gay YouTube star Chris Crocker, Carter publicly withdrew his support of Donald Trump because of the then-candidate’s anti-LGBT views.
