Teen sorta sensation Aaron Carter, perhaps best known as little brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is now 25 and touring the country on his “After Party” tour. On a stop in Boston, Carter claims he was jumped and beaten by four men, and he posted a couple Instagram photos of himself looking busted to prove it. What sparked the altercation? According to Carter, it was a classic boy band turf war. Seriously.
Here’s Carter’s version of events: apparently a “huge guy” approached Carter in a restaurant parking lot and said, “I heard you’re doing a show here tomorrow. This is the town of the New Kids.” (Why does this imaginary bully talk like a musical theater villain?), at which point 3 of his henchman jumped out of a gold Chevy Malibu(?!) and starting raining blows of New Kid pride on Carter’s face. Little did the vicious NKOTB gang know, though, that their victim had a secret weapon. “I’m a 6th degree black belt in Muay Thai,” Carter tweeted after the encounter. ”They lost.” Carter says he is continuing his tour as planned and is not going to file a police report because that would be “girlie.”
Listen, I don’t want to say that Aaron Carter is lying about this, but I do want to say that the compulsive liar in my fifth grade class told me more believable stories than this, and he once told me that he used his Gameboy to hack his way into a Delta jet’s control panel and fly the plane partway to Disneyland.
