Aaron Carter left rehab after only two weeks of treatment, TMZ reports. According to his representative, the singer’s explanation is he had to deal with “legal and personal matters.”
Aaron Carter left the rehab center where he voluntarily admitted himself into on September 24. At the time, he left a series of messages on Twitter to his fans and followers, explaining that it was his decision, that his family had nothing to do with it and that his problems are stress-related.
Now, after leaving rehab only two weeks into the treatment, his representative, Steve Honig, explains Carter’s decision: “Aaron has left the facility where he has been working on his wellness. Several legal and personal matters arose that required his immediate and in-person attention.”
Honig added: “He is still very much committed to his wellness and will be continually working toward being the best person possible.”
The team from “The Doctors”, who helped Aaron get into rehab gave a statement on the matter, saying that they were “saddened that Aaron did not complete the treatment we provided, as reclaiming his mental and physical health should be his number one priority.” They added that they will not continue working with him, but hope that Aaron “gets better and is not negatively affected by outside influences.”
Since leaving rehab, Carter has not been on social media. The day before leaving Twitter and promising to come back only next year, Carter also posted: “We can talk about this when I’m done taking care of myself. that goes to everyone especially the medias. I’m gonna have a lot to say. Thanks!”

On September 22, cops were called to Aaron’s apartment in Florida for a welfare check, after they received a 911 call from an unnamed person worried about the singer’s state. It was only revealed that the person was a man and that he got alarmed while they were FaceTiming.
