According to E! Online, 23-year-old former teen pop idol and “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Aaron Carter went to rehab on his own decision.

A source told E! Carter decided to go to rehab to “finally get some help.” “He was struggling recently and needed this,” the source said.

Jonny Wright, the singer’s manager confirms the source’s statement, according to E!.

Wright says Carter came to him several months ago to help reboot his music career and decided to take some time off training for a new album and live show to work out personal problems.

“Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with,” Wright told E!. “Therefore he has chosen to enter a facility where he feels he will get the guidance and cleansing he needs that will help him on the music journey he’s about to take.”

Wright says Carter asks everyone respects his privacy during this time and keeps him in their prayers.

According to E!, Carter remains positive about the experience, enjoying some time with visiting brother Nick Carter.

He posted this message on his twitter account after the visit: “Life Has Its up’s & Downs, You Can Only Live & Learn. Never Lose Faith!! & Always Believe In Yourself! As I Am learning To Do Every day.”

E! reports twitter rumors of a drug overdose Dec. 24 got Carter in the news. Manager Wright said the rumors were false saying Carter was “alive and well” in his compound where he’s been “working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body.”

The singer and reality star has had problems with substance abuse in the past, appearing on “Celebrity Rehab 2″

E! reports Carter was busy working on his new album, but friends and family suggested he take the time off to seek treatment.
