Aaron Carter Admits to Drug Problems, Storms Off Set on The Doctors

by at .

Former child star Aaron Carter appears to have hit quite a rough patch in recently.

Last week, police visited Carter's house four times in just 34 hours in response to requests for welfare check-ins from concerned loved ones.

Prior to that, Carter was arrested for DUI and drug possession after being pulled over for driving erratically in a Georgia suburb.

At the time, Carter insisted that he was not drunk, and was simply having a bad reaction to prescribed medications.

To prove to fans that the reports of his hard-partying ways have been greatly exaggerated, Carter sat down with the hosts of The Doctors today.

First the good news:

Host Travis Stork confirmed that Carter is taking a number of prescribed drugs to treat a persistent anxiety and pain disorders, but does not appear to be abusing any substances.

The bad news, however, is that Stork cautioned that the "mixture of benzodiazepines and opiates" found in Aaron's blood is a combination that frequently results in accidental overdoses.

Carter's sister, Leslie Carter, died of an overdose, and the singer says he lives in fear of a similar fate.

At one point in the episode, Stork described Carter as "malnourished," noting that his BMI "is in a very scary range" with a score of just 17.

(18.5 to 24.9 is considered a healthy range.)

Doctors on set reportedly advised Carter to check into rehab immediately, but according to TMZ, the 29-year-old stormed off set and drove from all the way from LA to his home in Florida.

Reps for Carter say the report is bogus and contend that Aaron "quietly and professionally" left the set more than half an hour after he completed filming.
