Aaron Carter: Concerned friends calls police after star’s suicide threats, gun purchase attempts

Authorities were called to the home of pop star, Aaron Carter, several times this week after he reportedly threatened suicide while at his Florida home.

NY Daily News reports that authorities arrived at Carter’s St. Petersburg home at around 10:01 p.m on Wednesday night after a friend called 911 and reported the “I Want Candy” singer threatened to kill himself. When police arrived, they couldn’t find Carter, although the lights inside the home were on.

Police records indicate that the Wednesday call was one of many calls made to Carter’s residence this week; three calls within 24 hours were made to police, all dealing with Carter.

The caller’s first dialed police at around 11:47 a.m. on Tuesday, and said Carter was binging on drugs and alcohol and attempted for the past few weeks to purchase a gun. Another call to police happened at 2:12 p.m. on the same day. The caller said the singer refused to take medicine given to him following a previous car accident and claimed Carter needed a psychiatric evaluation.

Carter took to Twitter to report the accident. He wrote “arms hurt my legs hurt all my airbags went off I broke my nose,” but didn’t explain how or why the accident happened.

Police interviewed Carter during the second call, and the pop singer explained he was fine and had no interest in authorities intervening. Yet, the following morning, at around 4:45 a.m., authorities arrived at Carter’s residence again, after a caller said that Carter was “not in a safe mental state” and “has threatened to harm family and others.” No one answered the door when authorities arrived.

“Aaron is fine and preparing for his performance in Memphis Saturday night and in New York on Tuesday,” a rep later told NY Daily News.

TMZ reports that family concern over Carter sparked at least one of the calls to police. Carter had allegedly threatened to take a cocktail of Xanax and Klonopin and had threatened to kill himself for months.

The pop star’s family is allegedly exploring legal options to get help for him, despite his denial and unwillingness.

Carter apparently isn’t happy with media coverage on the latest allegations. He tweeted that he’d like more coverage of the “good things,” such as recently receiving over 66 million spins on his remix song, “Sooner or Later.”
