Aaron Carter left rehab as of Friday (Oct. 6), according to his rep, after just two weeks of treatment.
“Aaron has left the facility where he has been working on his wellness. Several legal and personal matters arose that required his immediate and in-person attention,” Carter’s publicist Steve Honig told People. “He is still very much committed to his wellness and will be continually working toward being the best person possible.”
The singer checked into rehab on Sept. 22 to “improve his health and work on his overall wellness,” Honig told The Hollywood Reporter at the time.
He wrote a string of tweets on the night he checked in, saying, “Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.” In a lengthier post, he said, “I will be disappearing for a while to work on myself.”
Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.

The news comes after Carter was arrested for a DUI and possession of marijuana in July. He insisted to Entertainment Tonight that he had nothing in his system at the time, emphasizing that he doesn’t drink alcohol at all because it conflicts with a medical condition.
