The pair have had a rocky relationship for years. When Aaron was arrested last month, Nick tweeted: ‘To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better. Family isn’t always easy, be [sic] we’re all here for you.’

In response Aaron tweeted: ‘If my own blood (Nick) truly cared about my well-being, why wouldn’t he call me directly and have a conversation instead of making this about him through a very public forum? That’s not cool at all to use me for his PR and kick me while I am down. I love my family despite it through thick and thin.’

‘Yes, I am a bisexual man’

On Thursday, Aaron performed at gay club Hamburger Mary’s in Brandon, Florida. He the crowd ‘Yes, I am a bisexual man’ before crying as he thanked his fans for their support.

In the original statement about his sexuality posted last week, Aaron said: ‘I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive.’

He furthermore added: ‘There were years that went by that I thought about it, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with.’

Aaron has sold 10 million records around the world, and released four studio albums.
