Why Did Aaron Carter and Melanie Martin Split?

Carter and Melanie confirmed their relationship in January 2020 by going Instagram official that month. 

The “I Want Candy” cover artist proposed to Martin in June 2020, just three months after Carter proudly flaunted a face tattoo in her honor in March of that year.  The pair then announced Martin’s pregnancy in March 2021 by sharing a picture of her positive pregnancy test. 

Shortly after welcoming their baby boy, the on-again, off-again couple announced their split in November 2021. 

“Due to personal reason [sic] Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Carter wrote via Twitter at the time. “There has been a very big lie and my sister communicating w my ex-fiancé [sic] ruined everything considering she knew what angel tried to do to me in court thanks angel you ruined my family. God bless.”

However, one month later, Carter told Us Weekly that he and Martin had decided to give their love another shot. 

“We were still trying to figure it out,” the rapper said in December 2021, before referring to how parenthood changed his perception on life. “It’s all a beautiful blessing because I’ve had a lot of relationships and I started [to] kind of [give] up on love. I was talking about having a family years ago.” 

Two months later, Carter and Martin split in February 2022. However, they seemingly got back together by June and appeared to still be together as of October.
