The more we learn about his tortured past, the sadder we are - but then we remember he’s okay now and we’re a little happier.
Nick Carter is opening all the way up in his new memoir Facing the Music and Living to Talk About It, and we're finally hearing more about his troubled youth.
As we previously mentioned, the Backstreet Boys singer talks about his family, and how his alcoholism started there, explaining that he lived above a bar, The Yankee Rebel. In fact, he recalls that his drinking problem may have started as young as when he was TWO YEARS OLD! He remembers:
Nick Carter is a musician and part of one of the best boy bands of all time (also, a writer?). Lauren Kitt is a fitness instructor and his fiancée. You'd think she's be able to destroy him in a foot race!
Apparently that's NOT The case!
If you check out the pic from Malibu (above), you can see that the Backstreet Boys singer is grinning like a villain because he just won a race down the street!
Or, maybe she let him win!
Either way, it was healthy and they look happy!

As we mentioned last week, Nick Carter put a pair of Jordan's on eBay signed by all the members of New Kids On The Block and Backstreet Boys to auction off for charity.
We're happy to report that the final bid closed on Monday morning at $16,100, which will directly benefit environmental organization Global Green USA.
It's awesome to see celebs using their popularity for good. We're glad these shoes made somebody happy and that somebody in return made the environment a little happier too! LOLz!

What do you do years after your boy band has broken up and you’re just sort of bored?
Go on a cooking show in Berlin!
