A judge has reportedly approved Nick Carter’s request for a one-year restraining order against his estranged brother, Aaron Carter, after his younger sibling didn’t show up for court on Wednesday, November 20. As a result, Aaron must avoid any contact with the former Backstreet Boys singer until November of 2020.

“Duped my bro gave him a sleepless night,” Aaron tweeted, seemingly confirming he’s OK with the verdict. “Thinking he would have to face his accuser Melissa. My legal team and I was thrilled I don’t have to talk to them for a year.”

As we previously reported, Nick, 39, has denied the shocking sexual assault allegations made against him by Melissa Schuman.

This marks the second legal blow delivered to the “I Want Candy” singer, 31, within the last day. His twin sister Angel Carter’s separate restraining order, which she filed a few months ago with their brother Nick, was extended during a hearing based in Los Angeles on November 19. In addition, Aaron was forced to surrender his guns.

After Angel and Nick’s previous legal victory, Aaron took to Instagram to air out his grievances. “I am devastated by what happened in court today,” he wrote. “My sister lied over and over in an effort take away my 2nd amendment rights and she did it on behalf of my brother to silence me talking about how he sexually assaulted multiple women.”

“I am saddened by my family and what they have done to me,” Aaron added. “Your lies have broken my heart.”

Tension between the trio reached a boiling point in September 2019 when the former boy bander took to Twitter to reveal why he and Angel were taking action against their sibling.

“After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today,” Nick began, while also making note of Aaron’s “increasingly alarming behavior.”

Nick claimed Aaron confessed to having “thoughts and intentions of killing [Nick’s] pregnant wife and unborn child,” so they felt compelled to do whatever was necessary to “protect ourselves and our family.”
