Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter in Boston


Backstreet Boys Nick Carter and Howie Dorough were in Boston on Tuesday to promote the boy band’s new album, “In A World Like This.” During a pit stop at Mix 104.1, they were quizzed by morning host Kennedy Elsey about Nick’s brother Aaron Carter’s claim that he got into a fight in Boston over the weekend with New Kids on the Block fans who jumped him because he was in NKOTB territory. Aaron Carter told TMZ about the alleged fight and posted photos of himself with bruises and scratches on Instagram. At the radio station, Nick Carter told Kennedy, of his brother’s claim, “It’s just strange because honestly I literally talk to all the New Kids all the time, and we’ve got a past in this town with these guys,” referring to the Backstreet Boys’s tour with New Kids as NKOTBSB in 2010 and 2011. Nick also joked, of his brother, “He is not a black belt in anything. Dancing, maybe.” New Kid Donnie Wahlberg also had some fun with Aaron Carter’s story on Tuesday when he tweeted, “A Chevy Malibu with a bunch of mean looking girls inside keeps circling me. Uh-oh . . . Cincinnati is 98 Degrees turf! This could get violent.”
