Aaron Carter’s career and eventual bankruptcy

Aaron Carter was prominent in the show business back in the late ‘90s as a pop and hip hop singer. He came to fame after establishing himself as a popular icon among teenage audiences.

He began his career when he was seven and released a self-titled debut album in 1997. His second album "Aaron’s Party" sold three million copies in the US. Later on, Carter appeared on Nickelodeon several times. He also toured with his older brother Nick Carter's boy-band Backstreet Boys back in early 2000.

In 2002, he released the album "Another Earthquake" during his “Rock, Rap, and Retro” tour.

During that time, his parents sued his former manager Lou Pearlman for failing to pay hundreds of thousands for royalties on Carter’s album back in the late 90s. On 2003, Pearlman was declared in contempt of court for not following the court order to provide the legal documents that were related to the royalty payments.

Fast forward to November 2013, Carter filed a bankruptcy petition after revealing that he was $3.5 million in debt which was mostly taxes from his earnings from the height of his popularity. His publicist Steve Honig stated in his interview with CNN that it was not a negative thing and that it’s him doing what he needed to do to move forward.

Carter settled all of his tax debt in 2014.
