Aaron Carter has had a restraining order filed against him by his brother, Backstreet Boys alum Nick Carter.
This comes after Aaron, 31, reportedly bought a gun, assault rifle and ammunition from a pawn shop earlier this month after inheriting his fathers weapons collection.
According to the temporary restraining order, which has been obtained by TMZ, Aaron will have to stay at least 100 feet away from his brother, as well as his brothers wife, children and other family members.

Whats happening with Aaron Carter and his brother Nick?
Nick, 39, has taken to Twitter to explain his actions, saying: After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today.
In light of Aarons increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbours thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family.
We love our brother and truly hope he gets the proper treatment he needs before any harm comes to himself or anyone else.
