Aaron Carter and Fiancée Melanie Martin Break Up a Week After Son's Birth: 'I Was Deceived'

·2-min read

Aaron Carter and his fiancée Melanie Martin have broken up, just days after they welcomed their first child together.

The "I Want Candy" singer announced his split from Martin on Twitter Tuesday after nearly two years together, and one week after the birth of their son Prince.

"Due to personal reason[s] Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways," he wrote.

Carter, 33, alluded to "a very big lie" that took place between Martin and Carter's estranged twin sister Angel, but did not offer specifics, only noting that he believed Martin had "been lying to me the whole time." (Martin declined to comment to PEOPLE.)

Angel had a domestic violence restraining order against Carter extended in 2019.

"I can't even shed a tear. I'm in utter shock," he wrote in additional tweets. "I don't have a family now. I was deceived and lied too [sic]. I can't believe she betrayed [me] this way. I gave her the world. There's more to the story then [sic] meets the eye. My Heart hurts broken heart."

The House of Carters alum went on to say that Martin had told him she would be moving to Las Vegas with their son and a friend, and that he now considered himself a "single dad."

"Prince doesn't deserve any of this and now it's my job to just be a single father and that's what's gonna happen," he wrote.
