Aaron Carter and his fiancée Melanie Martin broke up a week after the birth of their son.

The American singer tells entertainment website


that the two have been separated since Tuesday morning.

According to Carter, 33, his family, with whom he has been at odds for years, is the cause of the split.

According to him, his now ex had contact with, among others, his twin sister Angel and he was not happy about that.

"Melanie lied to me the whole time. She communicated with my twin sister and the relatives who tried to put me in jail."

The younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter says he struggles with schizophrenia and is accused of threats by several family members.

For example, a judge previously ruled that he must stay away from Nick and his family for that reason.

Carter and Martin announced a week ago that they became parents to son Prince Lyric.

The two were expecting a baby in 2020, but that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.
