The hip hop child star wrote a 630-word essay about a loved one

Break-ups are bad enough without your ex taking to Twitter to air your dirty laundry.

In celeb-land social media slagging off seems to be a popular trend, not least when things have taken a turn for the worse.

On Sunday night, hip hop star Aaron Carter penned a 630-word essay, posting it to social media.

He wrote: ‘I’m a really sensitive guy and yes jealous and insecure at times cause I know I’m a skinny dude all of the anxiety stuff I’ve been through has been about my relationship I’ve just hid it from you all.’

Though the supposed lady in question was left unnamed, the 28-year-old admitted: ‘Love is the toughest thing I deal with in my life.’
