Why did Melanie Martin and Aaron Carter break up?

In an accusatory tweet, Aaron claimed that the reason for the sudden split was because of “a very big lie” concerning his twin sister, Angel Carter. He also called out his brother Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter and his wife Lauren Kitt.

The I Want Candy singer said: “Due to personal reason Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways. There has been a very big lie and my sister communicating w my ex fiancé ruined everything considering she knew what angel tried to do to me in court thanks angel you ruined my family. God bless.”

Carter added: “They cost me $50,000 in court my family trying to drain me so my house would be taken away from me in foreclosure labelling me a paedophile messaging me on Christmas [with restraining orders].”

“Now it’s my job to just be a single father”

In another explosive tweet, the Florida native claimed that Martin is leaving for Las Vegas with his son and allegedly told Aaron he would never see one-week-old Prince again.

However, Carter appears not to be standing for it. In several tweets, he referred to himself as a “single father.” One of his fans tweeted: “Go to court get custody you have rights your his father Aaron!!” Carter responded saying: “Oh I will that’s a fact” suggesting that a custody battle between the pair will soon ensue.

Carter said: “I’ve never felt more devastated and betrayed and lied to in my entire life this is such a horrible situation considering prince doesn’t deserve any of this and now it’s my job to just be a single father and that’s what’s gonna happen.”

Aaron Carter’s relationship with Melanie Martin explored

Aaron and Melanie first went public with their relationship in January 2020. But it was definitely not smooth sailing for the pair because in March of that same year the singer announced that he was “single” after Melanie was arrested following an alleged domestic dispute.

Infidelity has also caused significant issues throughout their relationship. In 2020, Melanie Martin exposed Aaron Carter’s messages to someone he was allegedly having an affair with. Carter hit back at the claims and went on to accuse Melanie of having an affair with “Pascal the jeweller” as well as partaking in a “threesome with a 60-year-old man.”
