The statement also targets Carter's older brother and former Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter - who reach out to his brother following news of the arrest.
"If my own Blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn't he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That's not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin," the statement said.
