In news that probably won’t shock you at all, the former child star Aaron Carter filed for bankruptcy earlier today. I literally couldn’t name a single Aaron Carter song, TV show, or movie, but there’s no denying he was a major celebrity in the late 90s. Backstreet Boy’s younger brother Nick Carter, Aaron released four solo albums between 1997 and 2002. His self-titled debut album went gold in at least five countries, selling around 500,000 copies worldwide. His second album “Aaron’s Party” was certified three times platinum in the United States alone.
Aaron Carter has sold at least 5 million albums during his career. He also had to earn millions more from tours, endorsements, merchandise, reality TV shows, DVDs, personal appearance fees, and more. There was a time when Aaron was literally the opening act for the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears, before becoming his own headliner. . Which is why it’s rather surprising to learn that he filed for bankruptcy protection in Florida earlier today. In the filing, Aaron lists his monthly income at just under $2,000. He also lists his monthly expenses at just over $2,000. He claims his assets are only worth $8,200 and include a $3,500 Breitling watch, a $500 flat-screen TV, two MacBook computers and a Louis Vuitton backpack (which he presumably lived on). Aaron, who stayed with a relative, listed debts totaling slightly more $2.2 million. Of this amount, $1.368 million is owed to the IRS alone. He also owes American Express $31,166.
Ok, I lied about something earlier in this article. I previously stated that I have never heard of any of Aaron Carter’s songs, TV shows or movies. The truth is I watched the 2005 Aaron Carter movie straight to DVD”Pop star“, at least three times from beginning to end. If you can find this movie, WATCH THIS. It’s so bad it’s good, through and through. Without giving away too many spoilers, Aaron Carter plays a popstar named JD McQueen whose parents force him to enroll in a public high school to improve his grades. For some reason, if he doesn’t improve his grades, he’ll be forced to cancel a big summer tour which, in turn, will ruin his future music career. Who hasn’t been in this situation before?! Long story short, imagine the absolute shenanigans that would ensue if the world’s biggest teenage popstar was forced to go to public school all of a sudden? Without giving it all away, by chance, her biggest fan in the world attends this school and she is a disgusting ugly nerd who turns into a total girl after 2 minutes of makeover. Oh and one more spoiler: for some reason, at the end of the movie by Adrianne Palicki the fake bra literally explodes with water like a broken sprinkler in the middle of an edit. Because it is something that can absolutely happen. The whole movie is definitely worth watching just for Adrianne’s wardrobe:
