The Hollywood Reporter reports:

Carter was a gossip-site fixture and known for headlines surrounding his personal life, dating back to his early years as a teen heartthrob. He welcomed son Prince with Melanie Martin in November 2021.

Over the years, the star was open about his struggles with substance abuse, including on a 2017 episode of The Doctors, and has had multiple rehab stays, most recently entering earlier this year in an effort to regain custody of his son.

He had previously entered rehab back in 2017 following an arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana charges.

Carter last appeared here in 2017 when he came out as bisexual.
