Aaron Carter opened up about his battle with mental health during a two-part interview on “The Doctors” this week.
TMZ shared a sneak peek of the chat, with the star revealing he’s been officially diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, manic depression and anxiety.
Carter also said he’s been taking a cocktail of drugs including Xanax, omeprazole, hydroxyzine and more.
The star told viewers, “This is my reality. Hi, I have nothing to hide.”

Carter takes on a drug test as well to prove he’s clean after admitting he used opioids following a dental procedure.
The star insisted, “I haven’t taken any opiods,” before adding: “Oh no, no, no, I did! It’s because I got my teeth done. I got six crowns!”
Carter’s mom Jane also got help for substance abuse during his appearance on the show.
Carter’s interview comes after he hit headlines after purchasing two new Smith & Wesson assault rifles at Rick’s Pawn Shop in Lancaster, California.
He was also recently granted a partial restraining order against his ex-girlfriend Lina Valentina, as well as being accused of adopting dogs and reselling them to new owners for profit.
In part two of the interview – which aired Friday – Carter was presented with the results of his drug test. Host Dr. Travis Stork revealed that the singer’s urine tested positive for marijuana, extended opiates, such as hydrocodone, and benzodiazepine. While Carter was initially surprised at testing positive for opiates, he later remembered that he had been prescribed hydrocodone for his dental procedure.
Carter also opened up about his huffing addiction and how he has to take Gabapentin and fish oil “to repair the serotonin receptors” in his brain.
“It’s something that I’ve kept secret from the whole world until now. Started when I was about 16,” he said, noting that he didn’t touch it until he was 23, after appearing on “Dancing With The Stars”.
“I started going to Staples and Office Depot, and different places, buying it with cash so it wouldn’t be reported on receipts or anything like that, so no one could trace me.”
He also added that it was his sister, Leslie, who introduced him to huffing. Leslie passed away from an overdose in 2012.
“I can say I’ve been through hell and back. And I’m here to stay,” he said.
