Rumours have been swirling that Aaron Carter is dating YouTube personality Trisha Paytas after the pair spent Labour Day weekend together, posting romantic photos and video of themselves on social media.
Speculation the two are an item first began on Sunday when Paytas, 31, posted a photo on Instagram of herself and Carter, also 31, sharing a kiss, with Paytas adding a ring emoji in the caption.
While Paytas, who made headlines in 2017 when she quit the U.K.s “Celebrity Big Brother” after just 11 days, deleted the post a few hours later, another Instagram user later reposted it.
Adding fuel to the fire was an An Instagram Live video chronicling their exploits as they drove around in a car together and, at one point, snuggled up together on a couch.
However, Carter downplayed the romance rumours, taking to Twitter to admit that he’s “single guys… for the time being. I’m not rushing into anything.”
Carter, who broke up with girlfriend Lina Valentina in early August after a year together — and was subsequently granted a restraining order against her — explained why he’s taking things slow in a followup tweet.
“I just got out of a relationship, that isn’t mature to move on too fast. PERIOD,” he wrote. “I have to learn from my mistakes.”
