He continued: “I see her in the craziest, most toxic, unhealthy place in the world.”

“I want that for my mom. She’s only going to work with you guys, and it might not even work,” Carter said.

Carter previously appeared on an episode of The Doctors in 2017, where he opened up about his health issues.

The singer addressed rumours regarding his thin appearance during a radio show in August 2017 and said the rumours would be put to rest once people watched his appearance on The Doctors.

“People are saying I have HIV, I have AIDS, I’m a meth head, I’m a crackhead, I do heroin. It really hurts,” Carter said. “I did this TV show called The Doctors, and you’re going to see a huge reveal and you’re going to see everything. That’s what’s really happening right now in my world.”

He sought treatment after he tested positive for benzodiazepines and opiates on his 2017 episode of The Doctors.

Carter checked into Alo House in Malibu to seek professional treatment for his mental and physical health issues in September 2017.

“Only I can change my life,” he tweeted on Sept. 22, 2017, the night he entered rehab. “No one can do it for me.”

At the time, Carter’s publicist Steve Honig said: “Aaron has decided to enter a facility to improve his health and work on his overall wellness. He is going to do this privately and focus all his attention on being the best person and performer possible. He is grateful for the support and love from his fans and looks forward to coming back stronger than ever before.”

Carter’s decision to enter rehab was also following his arrest on DUI and marijuana charges in Georgia in July 2017. He was arrested after another motorist called 911 to report that he was “driving all over the road” on a Georgia highway, a sheriff revealed.
