Nick Carter seeks restraining order against brother Aaron Carter

MANILA, Philippines  – Celebrities are no stranger to family drama – and the Carter household is no exemption.

Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter revealed on Tuesday, September 17 that he and his sister Angel are seeking a restraining order against younger brother and 90's teen sensation Aaron Carter.

Nick, 39, took to Twitter to reveal that after "careful consideration," they were “required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today," in light of his "increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child."

"We were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family,” he wrote.

Nick added that the love for his brother still remains as he hopes that he gets the “proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else."

His tweet included the hashtags, #mentalhealth, #GunControlNow, and #GunControl. 

Aaron, 31, however, didn’t take his brother's public move lightly, retaliating via Twitter on the same day. 

“So my brother just got a restraining order against me. And I was just served lol,” he wrote.
