Aaron Carter’s Girlfriend Arrested for Domestic Violence

Aaron Carter’s girlfriend, Melanie Martin, got arrested Sunday night in Los Angeles, following an alleged physical altercation.

The couple got into it after Melanie informed Aaron that she is pregnant.

Cops Showed Up to Aaron’s Home for Domestic Violence Call

According to law enforcement sources, it all went down at Aaron’s home in the Los Angeles-area suburb of Lancaster. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department responded to a domestic violence call at around 11 pm, after a verbal altercation turned physical. It is unclear who made the call.

Aaron claimed that during the alleged physical fight, girlfriend Melanie scratched him. He took photos as evidence, too. When law enforcement arrived, they confirmed that he did sustain physical damage. In other words, he had visible marks on his body.

Officers determined that Melanie was the alleged aggressor. They booked her for felony domestic violence, according to police records.

Melanie was taken into custody around midnight on Sunday, but released Monday afternoon after she posted a $50,000 bond.

What Sparked the Fight?

So, what started the fight? According to Aaron, Melanie informed him that she’s pregnant. The issue, though, is that Aaron thinks she’s lying. He also says there’s no chance they’re getting back together. At least, that’s what he’s told TMZ at this time.

That comes as quite a shock, considering Aaron’s newest tattoo. The singer had “Melanie” in script tattooed above his right eyebrow.

On top of that, the couple recently went shopping for some engagement bling. They were spotted shopping for diamond rings to the tune of $80,000.

Aaron has been making plenty of headlines in recent years, and none of them for good reasons. Like many others who rose to fame as child stars, he seems to be going through a lot. Irritability and recklessness could be pointing to something bigger–these are a couple of the big 7 signs of depression.

This could also be an underlying cause for Aaron’s other headline-making spat: the one with his siblings.

Both Angel and Nick Carter got restraining orders against brother Aaron. Nick felt he was forced to make that decision because of Aaron’s “increasingly alarming behavior.” He also said Aaron made a “recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child.”

Aaron was forced to surrender at least 2 of his guns to the police. Though, the former child star claims he has plenty more at home.
