90s teen heartthrob Aaron Carter opens up on his struggles with multiple mental health diagnoses.
The 31-year-old singer made his way on the American talk show The Doctors. In the clips released exclusively to Entertainment Weekly, Carter is seen listing down his illnesses and medications. This includes multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety, and manic depressions.
As for his prescriptions, Carter pulls out a bag containing his medications. “I’m prescribed to Xanax, Seroquel, Gabapentin, Hydroxyzine, Trazodone, Omeprazole,” Carter says on the show.
“This is my reality … hi,” he said as he pulled out the bag of prescribed drugs. “I have nothing to hide.”
The show’s host Dr. Travis Stork then examines the drugs. During which time, Carter tells the audience that he hasn’t been on opioids. He then retracts his statement saying “Oh no, no. I did. I got my teeth done, I got six crowns, so I had to take Hydrocodone.”
Another clip shows Dr. Stork holding Carter’s drug test results while he says “Aaron tested positive…” for drugs that will be revealed when the show airs.
The clip also teased the results of Carter’s drug test on the show, with Dr. Stork sharing that “Aaron tested positive” for a drug which will later be revealed.
Besides Carter’s revelations, the singer also appeared on the show with his mother, Jane Carter who suffers from a severe drinking problem. Carter reveals in the teasers that he wants The Doctors to help with his mom’s road to sobriety and save her life.
