Aaron Carter, the onetime teenybopper most famous for being the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, claims he was beaten up by a group of New Kids on the Block fans while in Boston over the weekend. The 25-year-old towheaded singer posted pictures of himself on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram sporting a black eye and bruised hand. He told TMZ he was leaving dinner with a friend Saturday when a man approached him in a parking lot and yelled: “I heard you’re doing a show here tomorrow. This is the town of the New Kids.” (Wait, aren’t New Kids fans mostly 35-year-old women?) Carter said three more guys then jumped out of a Chevy Malibu and started hitting him. “I think my knuckles might be broken, but that’s what they get,” Carter told TMZ. “People think I’m a pretty little white boy but no way. I think I won. I’m still standing.” Carter did not report the incident to police, though he did tweet about it. “Eh @jordanKnight this one of your homies? He got his [expletive] handed to him last night but his boys got me. #Soldier.” He also tweeted a picture of himself wearing a Red Sox hat. “Still loving BEANTOWN!! #BostonStrong.” Attempts to reach Carter were unsuccessful.
