Aaron Carter has been hit with a $50,000 lawsuit from a man claiming he worked on Aaron’s website – but was never paid.

TMZ reports John Cantu asked for a paycheck last month but was told by Aaron he was simply an unpaid intern.

Cantu then took control of Aaroncarter.com and redirected it to his own Twitter page, although the site is now blank.

Legal papers show Cantu will argue he could never have been an intern because he didn’t learn anything from the pop star.

It’s unclear if there was ever an agreement in place, or if Cantu just assumed the work would be paid.

Meantime, Aaron is touring the US off the back of his single “Fool’s Gold”. It’s surprisingly good – take a listen!
