[Blind Gossip] This music artist peaked many years ago, but that hasn’t stopped him from continuing with his music career.
He went through a very rough patch, physically, emotionally, financially.
However, his fans – who have been with him since he was a child star – were rooting for him to come out the other side, sober and focusing on his career.
Now, maybe not so much.
You see, he held a listening party in the past month. He charged $150 for tickets. Eager fans bought the tickets. They showed up at the venue the night of the show.
The singer never showed up!
To add insult to injury, he ignored all requests to refund the money.
That should have been the end of it, right?
He recently advertised for another event for tonight that he is holding in a big city on the East Coast.
Naive fans ponied up $125 a ticket.
One smart fan – who knew what had happened a few weeks ago – called the venue to verify that the singer was actually scheduled to perform.
The venue’s response? “We have no such event on our calendar.”
Yes, the singer had sold tickets for another non-existent event!
When he was called out on the bogus ticket sales, the singer did not respond… but he did take down the ad.
What are the chances that those fans who just shelled out $125 will get their money refunded?
$125 buys an awful lot of candy!

[Optional] What happened to the money?
I almost answered this yesterday and said ‘Leif Garrett’ but checked first. Thank goodness…. I’m aging myself for sure naming him but he has become enough of a loser that I wouldn’t put something like this past him.
Someone help this man
Singer- Aaron Carter
Agent Orangey says
I feel sorry for him. Mental illness is horrible.
Aaron Carter? He had a song called “I Want Candy” back in the day….he pocketed it obviously…mental issues or not, he’s a sleazebag…but I’m more shocked there are still people who would pay that much for anything he puts out…
Sounds like Aaron “I want candy” Carter to me. He really needs to get some help.
Can´t believe someone would do something like that to their fans…
That’s fraud —wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain— and fans should file a class action suit. LOCK HIM UP.
The Beagle says
This sounds like something Justin Beiber would do. He hasn’t been relevant in years. I hope that he and his muppet looking wife fade into obscurity sooner rather than later. They are annoying, he’s a has been with a history of alienating his fans, and Selena Gomez dodged a major bullet.
Aaron Carter…the money probably went to drugs and bad tattoos, unfortunately.
Aaron Carter. whatever he does with the money, I hope he doesn’t do anything that would drag him back into rehab…
My now 26 yr old daughter used to adore him. He’s been doing this since at least 2014. A lot of young people could have been the face to behind the song, “I want Candy.” His older brother seems to appreciate his celebrity opportunity, hence, recent Restraining Order that NC has against AC. Mental health struggles doesn’t excuse theft. No wonder he & Corey Feldman are feuding…probably shared secrets & now blackmailing each other. How is he not in jail ( I know the answer, sadly)?
Aaron Carter (I Want Candy reference)
He is probably impulse buying and relapsed.
Um, pretty sure that’s illegal Justin!
Singer: Aaron Carter
Aaron Carter? Just a guess tho.
And whoever it was, spent the $$ on drugs.
This is either Aaron Carter, or M&M 😁
Singer: Not sure
[Optional] What happened to the money? Either in his pocket or up his nose. What he did is FRAUD and ILLEGAL and I hope someone calls him on it.
Aaron “I Want Candy” Carter, gotta find a way to pay for that face tat! He is buying way too much meth, sad.
Singer: Bobby Brown
See the money again?: No way.
Clues: “Candy” – “Candy Girl” by New Edition; Child Star
He smoked it, drank it, snorted it…and just spent it. He’s such a sleazebag; blaming every one of his family for his problems. Good grief, he’s 31 and isn’t emotionally or mentally stable. He knows it, admits it, then lies again.

Aaron ” I Want Candy” Carter. What happened to the money? He snorted it up his nose!
Is this aaron carter?
Singer: the one who allegedly threatened his brother and pregnant sister in law. Aaron Paul? Something like that.
The $$$? Sniff, sniff, I do not know, sniff, snort.
Yuck, ick, nasty.
Now, the face tattoo!
Money went up his nose for sure.
Clues: candy (“I Want Candy”)
Optional: used it for more neck tattoos?
Candy makes me think this is Aaron Carter.
Pill addicts gonna pill addict.
aaaAnna F. says
Sang “I want Candy”
He’s somewhat unhinged at the moment – that face tattoo!?
The money has made his dealer very rich I would imagine?
I doubt robin thicke-he’s on one of the highest rated tv shows of all time.
Singer: Aaron Carter (former child star, currently going through a variety of rough patches, sang “I Want Candy”, just sold tickets for a “listening party” in LA for $150 in September)
Who knows, probably had to pay for his face tattoo.
Heartbreaking. Someone please help this man-child.
Definitely aaron carter
Clues are the candy (i want candy song) and the related blind is aaron rodgers
Money went toward drugs
Is this a safe place to admit i was madly in love with him when i was a kid? Cried at his concert. Was insanely jealous of hillary duff lol. So embarrassing.
hope they all used a credit card… they can dispute charges and the bank can file fraud charges against singer
That’s what I would do!
Singer: Aaron Carter
That money went to somewhere it wasn’t supposed to go…like more “candy “. Smdh
