Aaron Carter has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder
The I Want Candy singer has revealed he’s suffering from several different mental illnesses including “multiple personality disorder” and anxiety, as he defined himself as being “manic depressant”, a definition commonly used by those suffering with bipolar disorder.
Speaking in a clip obtained by TMZ from an upcoming candid two-part interview on The Doctors – which is set to air this week – Aaron said: “The official diagnosis is that I suffer from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety, [and] I’m manic depressant.”
Aaron then showed members of the studio audience the bag of medication he has been prescribed, which includes Xanax, omeprazole, hydroxyzine and more.
He added: “This is my reality. Hi, I have nothing to hide.”
The 31-year-old singer’s health update comes after he recently insisted his “mental stability” is “infinite”… after police visited his home last month when family members called for a wellness check as they feared for the star’s mental health
He said: “On a scale of one to 10, what’s my mental stability? 100,000. Infinite! Because throughout my 20s I went through bankruptcy, I went through being broke four times, I went through losing my sister, I went through so many different mental… and now [I’m on the other side of that].”
Police were called to Aaron’s home on August 8 after family members believed his mental health was suffering, but officers completed a wellness check, and sources confirmed that the call was a “false alarm”.
An insider said at the time: “He is not suicidal. He was basically swatted – this was a false alarm. He has been working a lot and busy.”
Aaron’s interview on The Doctors will air in two parts, on Thursday 12 and Friday 13 September.
