UPDATE 3:25 P.M. EST: John Cantu's attorney, Sam Park, revealed that the website developer has NOT hit Aaron Carter with a lawsuit, but is actually currently weighing his options.
As for now, his webdesign is up for sale or license… if the terms are agreeable to him. Additionally, both parties have been in contact, but no word on how their situation is being resolved.
Yikes. Aaron Carter's money troubles don't seem to be going away anytime soon.
You might remember the 28-year-old opened up about being "over $100k" in debt on the reality TV show Life Or Debt, and now, the singer has been hit with a new lawsuit.
According to TMZ, John Cantu was hired by Aaron to design his music marketing page, but was refused a paycheck back in June. Despite spending months working on it, the musician fired back saying John was only an intern.
Now, the "intern" is demanding $50K from the Fool's Gold artist for having to maintain the site for several months, citing he never learned anything from Nick Carter's younger bro, and can't be considered an intern.
What's not made clear is what sort of agreement the two had when John started working on the page.
The situation has only gotten uglier from there, as John crashed Aaron's site, even instructing fans to "follow a genius" and included his own Twitter handle.
Going from child star to successful adult can be incredibly difficult — something Aaron Carter knows all too well.
While the singer hasn't had the easiest time recently — he's received death threats for supporting Donald Trump, confronted a road raging driver, and of course ranted a LOT — it seems those are the least of his worries.
That's because the 28-year-old can add money troubles to his list of problems and he's set to appear on Spike TV's new reality show, Life Or Debt on Sunday where the Aaron's Party singer admits to financial advisor Victor Antonio:
"Financially, I'm in a terrible position. When I turned 18, I got hit with all those taxes. I filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy last year; now I'm already over $100,000 in debt."
Ch-ch-check out a clip from the upcoming episode (below) to get a little insight into Aaron's money woes.

Aaron Carter is setting the record straight.
The misconceptions are that I'm a meth head, or I'm a crackhead, or I'm a drug addict, or I'm this or that."
However, the blonde babe is adamant that he's "never" been addicted to those kinds of hard drugs.
But, he does acknowledge why he believes people think he's hooked on some serious stuff, saying:
"If you look at my parents, they have high cheekbones and [are] very skinny. I don't want to always feel like I have to prove myself, but people put me in these positions, and that's fine."
And while the Fool's Gold singer may not be a meth addict or a crackhead, he is confessing that he's not living a lifestyle of total sobriety, dishing:
After a bit of a break, Aaron Carter is looking to make his triumphant return to the music scene as he's getting ready to release his first album in almost 14 years!
Not only that, but the 28-year-old has also decided to release his first single titled Fool's Gold and he's premiering it with us! Score.
Aaron's album will be titled LøVë and will be released later this year under his own label Rakkaus Records.
