Cops were called to the home of late singer Aaron Carter just two months before his death, as he claimed he was suing his ex-fiancee for defamation.
Troubled singer Aaron Carter was gearing up to sue his ex-fiancee Melanie Martin – who is the mother of his child – for “defamation of character”, after she claimed he broke three of her ribs during a fight.
In a TikTok posted to celebrity gossip website TMZ, which has been shared 12,800 times and liked 126,300 times, Carter claimed the lawsuit would be a “Johnny Depp-Amber Heard 2.0” and denied suggestions he needed to go to a rehab facility.
While applying for a restraining order against Carter in March, Melanie claimed the singer broke three of her ribs during a domestic dispute on February 21, Page Sixreports.
“We had a fight about me talking to another man while we were broken up,” the 30-year-old model wrote in a court document obtained by The Blast.
“He punched me in the left rib and pushed me. I didn’t feel the pain until a few days later, then I left the house because he threaten to give me a restraining order.”
Prior to his death, Carter strongly denied the allegations and announced he was planning to sue Melanie for defamation.
The 34-year-old former teen pop star-turned rapper, who is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter, was found dead in his bathtub on November 5 at his California home.
Just two months ago, in what appeared to be a brisk and impromptu street interview posted to TikTok by TMZ on September 9, a seemingly dazed Carter was asked: “Do you need a rehab? Like serious rehab?”
The singer, who has admitted having drug problems in the past, replied, “No, not at all. For what? You know, um … clean five years, I don’t really smoke weed anymore.”
Carter was then asked, “So the cops were here the other night …?”
“Yeah, the cops were here, yeah. I called the cops,” he replied.
