It sounds like things may be looking up for Aaron Carter!
Maybe. Possibly. Hopefully.
Because come on, universe, can the guy get just one single break?
Aaron, as you probably know, has been having a rough time lately. A very rough time.
His father passed away in May, he was hospitalized in June after opening up about the horrific body-shaming comments he receives on a daily basis.
Then, in July, he was arrested for refusing to submit to testing for a DUI — it’s still not clear if he was actually driving under the influence or if he was telling the truth when he claimed he was driving poorly because of an issue with his car.
After the arrest, he gave a tearful interview about it all, and he also revealed that he suffers from an eating disorder.
And if all that wasn’t enough, we learned earlier this week that he and his girlfriend, Madison Parker, just broke up.
It’s a lot for one person to go through, especially just in one summer, right?
So hopefully this latest turn of events will work out for him — this latest turn of events being Chloe Grace Moretz showing interest in him in a new interview!
It’s true: when Chloe sat down for a chat with Variety recently, she mentioned that “When I was four years old, I thought Aaron Carter was so cool.”
She’s nine years younger than Aaron, so when she was four years old, he was right in the height of his fame. He actually was pretty cool then.
“My friend,” Chloe continued, “when we were both little babies back in Georgia, she liked Aaron Carter, too. We used to fight about who would date Aaron Carter one day.”
“Who knows?” she added. “Maybe we’ll meet.”
And judging by Aaron’s reaction to the quote on Twitter, he’s so down.
He replied to a page that had posted Chloe’s interview, writing “Mmmm may I take you to dinner @ChloeGMoretz?”
Then, just in case she missed the message, he tweeted “Hey @ChloeGMoretz – let’s set up a date. The crush is mutual.”
He even added that emoji with the heart eyes, so you know he’s serious.
So far, Chloe hasn’t responded, but since she did tack on that “Who knows? Maybe we’ll meet” bit at the end of her story, we’d say there’s a chance she could reach out to him.
If not for a genuine love connection, maybe just for a chat.
But, if they do have a love connection, hopefully Chloe would be cool with Aaron’s recent confession that he’s bisexual.
As he revealed in a recent interview, Madison Parker wasn’t cool with it, and that’s why they split.
“I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend,” he said, “and she didn’t really understand it and she didn’t want to. And that was it. So we left it mutual and parted ways.”
See what we mean about this guy having a tough summer?
Come through, Chloe!
