1 In a lengthy Twitter post over the weekend, Aaron Carter sent a heartfelt message to his fans revealing that he's attracted to both men and women.
"There's something I'd like to say that I feel is important for myself and my identity that has been weighing on my chest for nearly half of my life," he wrote.
"This doesn't bring me shame, just a weight and burden I have held onto for a long time that I would like lifted off me. I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13 years old I started to find boys and girls attractive. There were years that went by that I thought about, but it wasn't until I was 17 years old, after a few relationships with girls, that I had an experience with a male I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with."
The 29-year-old singer was in high-profile relationships in his teens with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan. (People)
