Although singer Aaron Carter 's career came on the heels of brother Nick Carter's Backstreet Boys fame , the young star carved out his own niche in the late s pop scene, launching him to teen heartthrob status. Yet while Aaron managed to emerge from Nick's shadow, darkness continued to haunt him in later years as he battled substance abuse and bankruptcy. Honig added that, in the years leading up to his bankruptcy, Aaron had "done a lot of things to put his life back together," and while he had issues with substance abuse, "he's been clean and sober for awhile [and] he's now taking care of his finances. Before Aaron and Nick Carter became pop sensations, their family was broke and couldn't afford a home of their own. But once the young pop stars began to earn hefty paychecks, parents Bob and Jane Carter used the money to improve their lifestyle. Even at this point, I've never even owned my own home," because his family left him empty-handed. They didn't do a lot of things right," Aaron explained. But instead of forcing his parents to face punishment for tax evasion, Aaron filed for bankruptcy to avoid the looming consequences. While Aaron Carter didn't want to "endure public humiliation [of] people thinking that [he's] broke," the "I Want Candy" singer filed for bankruptcy because he didn't want "people thinking [his] parents broke child-labor laws" either.
