Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has gotten a temporary restraining order against his younger brother Aaron, after alleging that the younger Carter threatened to kill Nick’s pregnant wife.

The 39 year old singer said the legal move came “in light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour”.

Aaron must now stay at least 100 feet away from Nick, his family and their Las Vegas home.

In response, Aaron Carter disowned his brother.

Aaron also said he was “astounded” by the accusations and did not wish to harm anyone, especially his family.

Aaron remained pretty active on Twitter following the announcement, tweeting and retweeting a lot about the situation, and several rape allegations against Nick.
