Aaron Carter has had a tumultuous relationship with Melanie Martin for quite some time. Just few days back, the turbulent couple called it quits for the second time. Now, it appears they are going to be butting heads for the legal custody of their infant son.

The I Want Candy singer has filed a petition for protection against Martin at the Antelope Valley Courthouse in Los Angeles County. According to The Blast, Carter petitioned the court for full ‘legal and physical’ custody of the couple’s son Prince, who was born in November 2021.

Carter also claimed he was abused by Martin in the filing which was documented on Feb. 23, 2022. However, Carter asserted there weren’t any witnesses to his alleged abuse. In the legal documents, Carter described the abuse inflicted on him as ’emotional distress, anguish, shoving, & scratching.’ 

Carter described Martin’s actions as ‘verbally abusive, taunting, antagonizing, would not allow me to get any sleep all night long, shoving & scratching & attempted to push me over the banister over 2nd story staircase.’ He also claimed he suffered injuries which included ‘scratching on back & thumb.’

When Carter was asked why their three-month old son would need protection, he revealed Martin ‘unstable mentally’, and alleged she ’causes fights in front of our son’ and that ‘she neglects him.’ In his legal filing, the former child star is asking the court to order her to stay 100 yards (300 feet) away from him, his family members and friends.

Meanwhile, Carter has yet to comment on these recent developments. Stay tuned to Thirsty for future updates.
