THE Aaron Carter says New Kids on the Block fans beat him up

Aaron Carter is a pop singer most famous for beating shaq and/or having a Backstreet Boy as an older brother. Recently, Carter took to Instagram to document his battle scars, claiming to have been jumped by four grown men in Boston on Saturday. More than that, though, he's alleging that the men were avid New Kids on the Block fans, which would take the whole '90s boy band war to a whole new level.

Aaron, who posted some gnarly selfies after the fight, tells TMZ he was leaving dinner with a friend last night in beantown, when a huge guy approached him in the parking lot and yelled: "I heard you’re doing a show here tomorrow. This is the town of the New Kids."

Aaron claims three other guys then jumped out of a gold Chevy Malibu ... and started the beat down, which came complete with a shot to his face.

Carter added that he got a few good licks in himself, adding that he thinks he won the fight. Which begs the question, if NKOTB fans and Aaron Carter fight it out on the streets of Boston, is anyone really a winner? [TMZ]
