St. Petersburg, Fla. police were called to Aaron’s home on September 21 for a welfare check after someone told authorities that he was under the influence and his friends revealed that they are “very worried about him”. But, this wasn’t the first time police have encountered the “Oh Aaron” singer in recent weeks.

The 29-year-old’s friend called 911 on September 5 to report that he was driving while high on computer duster. He crashed his car just hours later. The caller told police that he is “very very ill, he’s on the verge of death” and warned cops that “the next time you guys go out there it’s going to be finding him dead.”

The singer tested positive for opiates on The Doctors earlier this month, and revealed that he was “concerned about his overall health because people tell him that he looks like he has AIDS.” He explained that he “didn’t realize” he was only 115 pounds because he “wasn’t looking at himself in the mirror.”

He refused to go to rehab after his Doctors appearance, but he was hospitalized after being “body shamed” by fans in June. He claimed the emergency room visit was “a little check up.”

Meanwhile, their sister Bobbie Jean, 35, managed to stay out of the limelight, as she’s a broke, struggling waitress!

She started a GoFundMe page to raise $2,500 in 2016 after her baby daddy died in her own home. “He was the primary provider in our household, and I come to you all humble and asking for help. I have tried for months to do it on my own, but quite honestly I am treading water. My mother has been my rock and has helped me in every way she possibly could, unfortunately it's not enough. I am now going on 2 months behind on my rent, and my car is up for repossession. I work as a server at an Applebees and for those of you who know, especially here in Florida it can be very seasonal,” she pleaded.

She was also arrested for DUI twice, among other charges.
