The stunt was a response to rumors that he was using drugs.
Musician Aaron Carter posted a video on Instagram of himself taking a drug test and showing off the clean results last Thursday.
In the video, he directly addresses Radar Online, which ran a story about what seemed to be a line of white powder and a credit card visible in a recent live stream by Carter.
“Radar Online, I’m just letting you know, I’m taking a drug test right now. It says for amphetamines, cocaine, MDMA, meth, opiates, PCP, and THC,” he says in the video, presenting the cup. “I’m gonna piss in a cup right now.”
The Results Are In
In a follow-up video, he presents the results—two lines, indicating a negative result, for every drug except THC.
“Negative means two lines, one means preliminary positive,” Carter says in the video. “I only tested positive for THC. This is my nasty ass dehydrated fucking piss, so please shut the fuck up and stop what you’re doing, and Radar Online, you have 24 hours to delete your post.”
Carter needs to prove he’s drug free because it can affect his career, he explains in the video. If there are rumors swirling around that he’s on drugs, it’s harder for him to get bookings.
“STOP WRITING LIES ABOUT ME AND START THROWING SOME FUCCKING RESPECT ON MY NAME! @radaronline, your ‘shocking drug’ post about me was desperate and completely misleading to whatever readers you have left these days,” he wrote in the caption. “proving you idiots wrong will NEVER get old to me. so shut the fuck up already with your bullshit.”
Carter recently opened up about his struggles with addiction on an episode of The Doctors, explaining that he began huffing at 16 and was really using it by 23.
“I was huffing because I was really fucking stupid and sad but this is really no excuse,” he recounted. “I was huffing because I’m a drug addict.”
Aaron Carter has also been in the headlines lately as his brother, Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, and Aaron’s twin sister have filed restraining orders to keep him away due to “increasingly alarming behavior. In court documents, Nick alleges that Aaron told his twin sister that he has thoughts of killing babies and of killing Nick’s wife. Aaron denied the allegations.
“I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family,” he wrote in a tweet.
