Aaron Carter revealed that he and his former fiancée, Melanie Martin, split one week after welcoming their son, Prince, in a series of emotional tweets. 

“Due to personal reason [sic] Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways,” the Tampa, Florida, native, 33, posted on Tuesday, November 30, explaining why he and Martin ended their engagement. “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.”

Aaron addressed his twin sister, Angel Carter, in the string of Twitter posts and brought up how he and some of his relatives have a long-strained and tumultuous relationship, which has often made headlines over the years.

“I have the most conniving, deceiving family and Melanie has been lying to me the whole time communicating with my twin sister and the family members who tried to put me in prison and who tried to get a conservatorship on me in court,” the “I Want Candy” singer alleged. “I’m in shocked [sic] this is horrible.” 

Aaron proposed to Martin in June 2020, and the couple proudly showed off her engagement ring at the time of their announcement. Their commitment came shortly after he debuted a new face tattoo in her honor that March following their Instagram debut as a couple in January.

In later tweets elaborating on their sudden breakup, Aaron slammed his brother Nick Carter and Nick’s wife, Lauren Kitt, also telling his social media followers that he’s never felt more “devastated, betrayed and lied to in my entire life” by his ex-fiancée but is prepared to be a “single father.”
