Aaron Carter Reveals Medical Condition He Says Keeps Him SkinnyPublished on April 27, 2017.
Aaron Carter is confronting all of the talk about his skinny frame and says it’s due to a medical condition.
The 29-year-old singer tweeted out a response to all the comments and concerns about his weight and revealed it’s caused by a hiatal hernia, a diagnosis he received at the age of 19.
“By the way y’all wanna know why I’m so skinny? It’s because @ 19 i was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia, I didn’t choose that. be kind to me,” he said. “It’s a terrible stress condition that affects me having an appetite and I’m sorry this is the way I am. Basically I have an eating disorder.”
He followed up with: “I’m sorry, sometimes I really wish I did look better, or I eat more like y’all say, this life doesn’t come w much stability. If you don’t believe me ask my brother he was there when I was diagnosed. It’s a stress eating disorder, I’m sorry I didn’t choose this.”
Carter also reassured fans that he does not do drugs and his weight is not a result of a drug problem. “No I don’t do drugs, yes I feel pain, I haven’t stopped working since I was 7 years old 22 years later and I still won’t give up,” he tweeted.
This isn’t the first time Carter has defended his weight over Twitter. Back in 2015 he said: “The way people talk about my weight is like high school times a million. Yes. I’m skinny right now. I’ve been very stressed and going thru some s— and felt like I needed to explain myself ’cause so many people are asking me and talking about me being too f—ing skinny. Just so we are VERY CLEAR I DON’T do drugs. I smoke bud but that’s it.”
