Aaron Carter‘s girlfriend Melanie Martin was arrested on Sunday night in Los Angeles following an alleged domestic violence incident.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was called to Carter’s home for a report of a domestic dispute, Fox News confirms.
According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department inmate records, Martin was being held on a $50,000 bail in Lancaster, Calif., Entertainment Tonight reports.
Carter addressed the situation on Twitter on Monday in a series of tweets.
He also posted a short video on Twitter, saying: “Melanie got arrested so… for domestic assault.
“And she cheated on me so… yeah.”
“You don’t have to wait for someone to treat you bad repeatedly. All it takes is once, and if they get away with it that once, if they know they can treat you like that, then it sets the pattern for the future,” Carter tweeted.
“#ScornedWomen I hope she gets the help she deserves. I tried to give her a new life,” the I Want Candy singer tweeted.
“I’m not in jail for felony assault with animal control looking for my dog because she broke its leg and didn’t take it to the hospital #FelonyAssault,” he wrote.
