Aaron Carter -- who first became popular as a teen pop star -- has revealed he’s dealing with various mental health issues. In an episode of The Doctors, the American singer revealed that he suffers from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression. The show’s Facebook page shared a clip of the 31-year-old star’s interview, where he holds up a plastic bag containing several prescription bottles, including Xanax, and mentions the six medications with which he's being treated. He said this was his reality and that he had “nothing to hide.”
Aaron was accompanied by his mother, Jane, on the show, and he asked the hosts Dr Travis Stork and Dr Judy Ho to help her with her alcohol addiction. He said, “She’s been drinking three pints of vodka for 25 years. She’s dying. I see her in the craziest, most toxic, unhealthy place in the world."
The show will be aired in two parts, on Thursday and Friday. Meanwhile Aaron has also been sharing messages on his Instagram page. In one post, he said, I’m learning I’m growing and I’m doing my best as a man to take care of myself and be independent so that when my wife shows up, she knows that she has a real man that loves her unconditionally because she loves me unconditionally... wherever she is.”

Xo Good morning from California waiting for my wife to show up so she can help protect me from some of these crazy ass people. Someone to protect my heart. Mentally, not physically. I’ve been cleaning silver for two years off of my drug of choice which I haven’t revealed to the world yet it’s coming out on the doctors tomorrow. I’m learning I’m growing and I’m doing my best as a man to take care of myself and be independent so that when my wife shows up she knows that she has a real man that loves her unconditionally because she loves me unconditionally... wherever she is.
Posting a still from The Doctors, he asked people to watch the show, in a second post, “Speaking your truth and making amends for your shortcomings and taking care of your loved ones is the most important thing to me in my life makes you guys tune in to the doctors.” The ‘I Want Candy’ singer appeared on the same show in 2017, where he had shared details of his arrest, sexuality and health issues.
