Listen to Aaron Carter on iHeartRadio

It looks as if pop singer Aaron Carter has hit another rough patch. Carter, who has made headlines for a few personal setbacks over the years, has reportedly filed for bankruptcy. 

According to documents obtained by, the former pre-teen and teen star doesn't have enough to pay the bills.  Aaron is claiming total assets of just over $8,000 while his debt total is estimated at $2.2 million. A big chunk of that debt - $1.3 million - is reportedly owed to the IRS. 

The now 25-year-old singer is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.  He is said to be living with a family member while he sorts out his financial issues.  

Aaron's rep, Steve Honig, tells TMZ the overwhelming majority of Aaron's debt was accumulated more than ten years ago when he was a minor and not in control of his finances.  Honig says Aaron filed for bankruptcy to move forward with his life and career.
