Aaron Carter is looking for love but there’s just one catch.
“When it comes down to it, really, I had an experience when I was 17 with a guy, but now as an almost 30-year-old man, I’m going to be pursuing relationships with women,” Carter told TMZ while walking through Los Angeles International Airport in an interview published Friday.
“I want to pursue a relationship with a woman. I’m actually taking [reality star] Porcelain Black out on a date tonight,” he added.
Carter also opened up about the end of his relationship with Parker, which was originally described by his reps as “a mutual decision.”
“If someone loves you enough, they’ll never leave you,” he told TMZ. “They’ll never leave you over you saying that ‘I want to be honest’ about whether it’s about me being bisexual, bicurious, being gay, or anything.”
This isn’t the first time Carter has alluded to Parker leaving him for coming out. In an interview with “The Bert Show” on Aug. 9, the singer told host Bert Weiss, “I had discussed it with my ex-girlfriend, and she didn’t really understand it and she didn’t want [to].”
Parker denies Carter’s claims.
“My split with Aaron has nothing to do with him being bisexual,” she told E! News. “Our parting of ways is something that has been coming for some time and it’s the best thing for us both. Some of my closest friends and loved ones are of the LGBTQ community, people I love and support wholeheartedly, so for or anyone to label me ‘homophobic’ is appalling and hurtful and couldn’t be more off character.”
