Despite being on tour and selling out concerts to hordes of screaming girls, pop star Aaron Carter is broke and has filed for bankruptcy.

The 25-year-old filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy recently, claiming he owes more than $2.2 million in liabilities — $1.4 million to the IRS and $31,166 to American Express, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ.

Carter, the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, found success in the '90s as a young pop singer. His 2000 album, "Aaron's Party," went triple platinum and he's best known for the song "I Want Candy."

He recently resurrected his career and has been on the "After Party Tour" for most of this year. His even sold out a show Thursday night in Eugene, Ore.

In the bankruptcy filing, Carter listed his monthly income as $1,998.75 and his monthly expenses as $2,005.

"The overwhelming majority of the debt he is asking to be discharged is from more than 10 years ago when he was a minor and not in control of his finances," Steve Honig, Carter's publicist, told TMZ. "This is not a negative thing. It's actually very positive. It's him doing what he needs to do to move forward."

Carter reportedly struggled with substance abuse in the past but said recently that he's completely changed his ways.

"I've been living a different lifestyle," he told the Wichita Eagle last month. "I don't party. I've partied enough. I don't go out. I focus on other things that are much more important. I focus on being an entertainer. I love performing. That's what I'm about. I want to take that next step."
