Aaron Carter’s ex insists she’s not homophobic: “Some of my closest friends are LGBTQ!”

Aaron Carter’s ex-girlfriend denies she’s homophobic, calling his claim that she dumped him for coming out as bisexual  “appalling and deeply hurtful.”

Days before coming out and on the heels of promoting his new single, Carter claims he opened up to Madison Parker about his sexuality.

A statement from Parker’s publicist initially claimed the split was mutual, but Carter later said she dumped him.

“I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend,” he said on the Bert Show, “and she didn’t really understand it and she didn’t want [to.]”

While he didn’t expressly call her out, he did say his sexuality was the impetus for the split-up.

“And that was it,” he said. “So we left it mutual and parted ways.”

Now, responding to Carter’s claim, 28-year-old Parker is livid at the insinuation.

Talking to E! News, she said, “My split with Aaron has nothing to do with him being bisexual.”

“Our parting of ways is something that has been coming for some time and it’s the best thing for us both.

Some of my closest friends and loved ones are of the LGBTQ community, people I love and support wholeheartedly, so for… anyone to label me ‘homophobic’ is appalling and hurtful and couldn’t be more off character.

I’ve been nothing but supportive of Aaron and his career and I’m happy for him that he’s having the courage to live his truth.

Breaking up is never easy for anyone, but it is my hope that we can move on from this point as peacefully and respectfully as possible. I wish him all the best.”

Carter came out two weeks ago in a Twitter post, writing:

“To start off, I would like to say that I love each and EVERY ONE of my fans.

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.

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 of me.”

    Given his prior antics to coming out, I’d say in her mind, his being bisexual was like the 6th thing wrong with him lmao!!!

  • Donston

    It’s kinda weird that she waited this long to say something, because he’s been whining about her ever since their supposed break up. And watch, in another month there’s suddenly an “understanding” and they’re back together happier than ever. I just don’t care about Aaron, his sexual orientation, his “lifestyle”, his ex-girlfriend or his new single. The whole thing is just too juvenile, too manipulated, too publicity and press drive and too trailer trashy. As always, I do wish him good physical and mental health.

    • Kieran

      We can tell you don’t care about Aaron by all your posts about Aaron. LOL

    • Donston

      It is a hot topic, and they post about the dude everyday. But I’m rarely actually talking about Aaron when I post on his articles but rather sexuality in general and the possible motivations behind his outing. You clearly have nothing to say about either of those things. You don’t really have anything to say about Aaron either expect that you think he’s cute (based on old photos) and that you hope he’s successful for whatever reason.

  • Ummmm Yeah

    If he hid or lied about something for years, who can blame her for breaking up with him?

  • DCguy

    The fact that he felt the need to tell her seems to indicate that it was going to be an issue in their relationship. I.E. he told her he wanted to sleep with guys.

    Of course she would dump a guy who said he wanted to sleep with other people if she wasn’t into that type of relationship.

    Male bisexuality dis-empowers women. It magnifies male sexuality to the point where women cannot compete.

    Men are far more accepting of female bisexuality than women are of male bisexuality. Women are known to fake their bisexuality to please men, and men reward them for it.

    This is

    Anti-homosexual laws were predominantly used against men, not women.

  • Jaxton

    There is a lot of bisexual hypocrosy in women. Women think that female bisexuality should be accepted but not male bisexuality.

  • Eddie W
