Freshly out, freshly single.

One day after coming out as bi, Aaron Carter’s girlfriend dumps him

Former teeny bopper Aaron Carter had quite the weekend. First, he made headlines when he tweeted that he’s identified as bisexual for more than half his 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 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.

24 hours later, his girlfriend of a year, Madison Parker, dumped him. And from what it sounds like, he dumped her, too. It was mutual dumpage. Reps for both parties confirmed the split:

 Aaron and Madison 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.

The breakup comes just weeks after Carter was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana. Parker was riding in the passenger seat at the time and was also taken into custody.

When it rains, it pours.

In other Carter news, a lot of people mistakenly tweeted that the 29-year-old singer was gay, even though he clearly stated that he is attracted to men and women:

Many others were quick to point out that being bisexual is different from being gay:

So just to clear up any lingering confusion: Aaron Carter identifies bisexual, not gay.

Oh, and he’s single.


Update: Aaron would like you to know the couple did NOT break up today, but rather a week ago. It was merely announced today. This. Changes. Everything.
