Aaron Carter’s Dancing With The Stars partner is reassuring the world that he is just fine after being billed with over a million dollars in back taxes. On Wednesday, Karina Smirnoff spoke with Usmagazine.com about the bad news while hanging out at the Launch of the Behold III by Samsung event.
Karina insisted that Aaron is doing great despite the large sum of money that he will soon be shoveling out to the IRS. “He’s dealing with it as maturely and professionally as he can,” Smirnoff told Usmagazine.com. “I don’t see why he can be held responsible,” she said. “He was a baby when all that [tax evasion] happened.”
Then, of course, she admitted that she might be a bit biased. “But,” she continued, “I’m not IRS and I guess that’s the reason why I’m not. But, he’s a great guy. I think he’s doing an amazing job. Very proud of him!”
Aaron’s manager released the following statement: “It is unfortunate that while Aaron was a minor, his finances were grossly mismanaged by his previous team which has lead to the current situation of which he was unaware of until today.”
