Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter has obtained a restraining order against his brother Aaron, citing the latter’s “increasingly alarming behaviour”.

Nick, who is one fifth of the best-selling boyband of all time, wrote on Twitter: “In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour and his recent confession that he harbours thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family.”

Hashtagging the post with “#mentalhealth #GunControlNow #GunControl”, he added: “We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else.”

In retaliation, Aaron, who is also a singer, wrote on Twitter: “So my brother just got a restraining order against me. And I was just served lol.”

“Take care,” he said, ”@nickcarter we’re done for life.”

He also tweeted he was “astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family”, claiming not to have seen his brother for the past four years.

Aaron entered rehab in 2017 following a DUI and an arrest for drug possession.

News of the restraining order comes after Aaron spoke about his history of addiction and drug use on last week’s episode of US talk show The Doctors.
