Nick Carter revealed on Tuesday that he and his sister, Angel, filed a restraining order against their brother, Aaron Carter.

In a tweet, which was highlighted with the hashtags #mentalhealth #GunControlNow #GunControl, the Backstreet Boys member said that, “In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family.”

Nick continued by saying, “We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else.”

TMZ is reporting that the restraining order states that "Aaron has to stay at least 100 feet away from Nick, Nick's wife and kids and other family members, specifically their residence in Las Vegas."

Nick's tweet came after Aaron revealed on his social media that he had been served with the restraining order.

 “So my brother just got a restraining order against me. And I was just served lol.”

That was followed by a series of tweets, including Aaron denying wanting to harm anyone and saying he hasn't seen Nick in four years.

“I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family,” Aaron tweeted.

TMZ is also reporting that the Carter family has been worried about Aaron's mental state recently, and that Aaron has voiced concerns about his own mental health too.
