Is this pop star’s partying days over?
“The Doctors” host Dr. Travis Stork will deliver an update on Aaron Carter’s health during Friday’s show, discussing the musician’s decision not to enter treatment after he and his co-hosts recommended a center in Malibu, Calif.
“He is yet to take those steps to go there,” Stork says in a preview for the episode.
Aaron Carter “repeatedly” vowed to seek treatment for his drug use, according to Dr. Travis Stork of “The Doctors.”
According to Stork, Carter has said several times that he plans to enter treatment in time. For now, however, he’s bound by “concerts” and “some legal things.”
“He repeatedly tells me that this is what he plans to do, and he’s not going to do it for anyone else but himself. But Aaron also has a lot of things and reasons – I’m not going to say the world ‘excuses’ because that’s not what I want to use – but concerts, some legal things,” Stork explains.
“The mentality is ‘once I can get these taken care of, then I will go’…Every day I hope that I hear from Aaron that he’s going. Only Aaron knows now what will happen with his future.”
A report from TMZ on Thursday suggested that Carter was offended by “The Doctors” hosts suggestion that he get help. The outlet reported that he stormed off stage, hopped in his car and began the journey, by car, from California to Florida.
His team has confirmed that is not that case, telling TMZ Carter left “quietly and professionally” almost thirty minutes after filming was complete.

A rep for the singer told the Daily News Carter, 29, is “committed” to working on himself, though he did not clarify how he intends to do that.
According to the rep for Carter, that should the “Sooner or Later” singer choose to enter treatment, “he will do so privately and quietly.”
“Aaron is committed to working on his wellness and being the best person and performer possible,” the statement read. “Whatever path he chooses to go down to better himself, he will do so privately and quietly. More than anything else, he is grateful for the constant support and love from his fans and he looks forward to a bright future.”
Carter has not said much since appearing on “The Doctors,” where he submitted to testing for substances, HIV and sexually transmitted infections, but did tweet that he has “A lot to be thankful for.”
