Nick Carter claims brother Aaron told their sister he has 'thoughts of killing babies' as he wins restraining order over fears for his family
Former Backstreet Boy Nick Carter obtained a restraining order against his younger brother Aaron on Tuesday.
And according to the court documents he filed, obtained by TMZ, Nick claimed Aaron fantasized about killing babies in a Facetime conversation with his twin sister Angel.
He alleged that Aaron told Angel on August 7: 'I want to tell you something that I never told you before. I was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar 2 years ago.'
When Angel asked him if he heard voices, that's when he said: 'I have thoughts of killing babies.'

The court documents state Angel asked her brother if he thought of killing anyone else and that he replied he thinks about killing Nick's pregnant wife Lauren Kitt.
Nick and Lauren, who already have a son Odin, three, are expecting their second child next month.
Nick, 39, requested the restraining order because, he said, he is scared that Aaron, 31, will 'cause harm to my family.'
He stated that Aaron owns six firearms which he keeps 'readily available.'

Meanwhile, Aaron's ex-girlfriend Lina Valentina has been speaking about the situation.
In the court docs filed by Nick and Angel Carter, it's stated that Lina was there during the August 7 FaceTime conversation between Aaron and Angel.
She butted into the chat, asking: 'Angel, how do you think I feel with him sleeping with a sword next to him?'
Aaron then responded: 'Shut up Lina, you are next on my list,' TMZ reported.
The outlet caught up with Lina on Tuesday night and asked her about what's going on and she said she and his family are very worried about Aaron.
She told TMZ that all they're trying to do is help him but 'he's not seeing it that way right now.'
'He thinks everybody is trying to 'take him down' but it's all coming out of love and care,' Lina said, adding that those who love him are simply trying 'to save him from himself.'
