LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Pop singer Aaron Carter has broken off his engagement to his older brother’s ex.
The 18-year-old teen idol called off his engagement to 22-year-old actress Kari Ann Peniche just a week after he proposed onstage in Las Vegas, Us Weekly reported on its website Sunday.
Peniche is an ex-girlfriend of Carter’s older brother, Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter. She’s also a former Miss Teen USA and former Playboy Playmate.
"I got caught up in the moment and proposed," the younger Carter told the magazine. "I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet."
Both brothers will appear in the upcoming reality series "House of Carters" on the E! network.
