It's splitsville season in Hollywood, as pop singer #Aaron Carter and his girlfriend, #Madison Parker have separated. The news came via his representative, who told PEOPLE, "Aaron [Carter] and Madison [Parker] love each other and respect one another dearly. It was a mutual decision and Aaron’s personal statement released speaks for itself. Now back to the #Music."
