New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys are currently on tour — the cleverly-titled NKOTBSB Tour — but if you ever find yourself in Boston and someone asks “who you roll with?” DO NOT answer with “Backstreet Boys”. Aaron Carter — the apparently very dangerous younger brother of BSB Nick — found out the hard way over the weekend, when he encountered a rather aggressive group of New Kids On The Block fans who didn’t take too kindly to Aaron’s family ties:
Carter, the younger brother of a Backstreet Boy whose affections once captivated Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff simultaneously, tells TMZ he was walking across a parking lot in Boston when four men jumped him. “I heard you’re doing a show here tomorrow. This is the town of the New Kids,” their leader yelled before the gang “jumped out of a gold Chevy Malibu” and attacked. Missing a great opportunity for a dance-off, Carter says he returned fire with his fists and “I think my knuckles might be broken, but that’s what they get. People think I’m a pretty little white boy but no way. I think I won. I’m still standing.”
Unbeknownst to his attackers (or anyone else, for that matter), Aaron is a 6th-degree Muay Thai blackbelt (it must be awesome to make a kajillion dollars by age 16, because then you can just spend your days messing around, obtaining black belts in Muay Thai), and successfully fought back, before dropping a Richard Sherman-esque “I won”. He even managed to call out NKOTB’s Jordan Knight: “Eh @jordanKnight this one of your homies? He got his ass handed to him last night but his boys got me.. #Soldier”.
Also, in true gangsta fashion, Aaron chose not to report the incident to police — okay, he actually said it would just be “girlie”. Don’t be so modest, bro.
(Note: we’re really, really hoping everything about this is true)
