Aaron Carter is back on the market, ladies!
The 31-year-old “I Want Candy” singer has split from girlfriend Lina Valentina. The pair had dated for nearly one year.
In a statement, Carter said, “Lina and I have decided to go our separate ways. I was really hoping this would be the one that lasted forever. We had even talked about having kids, but we couldn’t seem to get past our differences and the relationship eventually turned unhealthy. I’ve been through so much the past few years and am trying to learn from my mistakes.”
He continued, “I don’t have any regrets being with Lina, and I definitely learned a lot about myself. I think this decision was the mature thing to do. I’m going to keep focusing on my music, my tour and my fans. Hopefully my soulmate is out there somewhere and I’ll meet her soon.”
Valentina has not commented on the breakup, which comes just a week after she came to support Carter as he performed at a Pop 2000 Tour concert n Las Vegas.
During a 2018 interview with “ET,” Carter — who also revealed the year prior that he finds both men and women attractive — said that he loves being in a relationship.
“I don’t really like being single, but it’s going on almost a year being single and it’s cool,” he said. “I’m learning things about myself, I guess. I don’t know. I like being in relationships. I like being in love, you know? But that’s not the case right now. So. And I’m not rushing to jump in to just, like, the first thing.”
