Melanie Martin, singer Aaron Carter's girlfriend, was reportedly arrested for scratching the singer's arm after a verbal fight in the latter's homer in Lancaster, California. The authorities were called in and Martin was taken into police headquarters on charges of felony domestic violence, according to a report in TMZ

The report states that on Sunday evening at about 11 pm, the LA County Sheriff's Department was called to Carter's home and upon arrival, they found scratch marks on the singer's arm. It was also reported that the argument began as a verbal spat which then turned physical. Carter confirmed to TMZ that Martin had informed him she was pregnant and he believed she was lying. This argument became physical and he now says that there is no chance of Carter getting back together with Martin now. 

Cops were quoted as saying they had determined Martin as the aggressor after they found evidence of scratch marks on Carter's body which then led to her arrest for felony domestic violence. 

Recently, Aaron was in news when his brother Nick, a member of Backstreet Boys got a restraining order against him. This was then followed by Aaron claiming his sister Leslie had sexually abused him in the past between the ages of 10 and 13 when she was not on medication for her bipolar condition. In a series of tweets, Aaron wrote, "My sister Leslie suffered from bipolar and took lithium to treat it. She never liked the way it made her feel and when she was off of it she did things that she never meant to do I truly believe that. I was 10 years old…."

He then added, "My sister raped me from the age of 10 to 13 years old when she wasn’t on her medications and I was abused not only sexually by her but by my first two back up dancers when I was 8 years old. And my brother abused me my whole life."

Following this, a spokesperson for LA County authorities said in a statement, "The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is aware of recent media reports regarding family members concerned about the welfare of Aaron Carter. We are currently investigating the concerns of all parties involved, and utilizing all available resources to assist family members in addressing their concerns."
