Saying that he "got caught up in the moment", Aaron Carter has called off his engagement to Playboy model Kari Ann Peniche, 22, after just one week. A source close to the 18-year-old idol told US Weekly, "They are just going to be friends now."
"She still wants to keep dating him but Aaron is not quite sure. He was trying to appease her but came to his senses and realized it was the wrong thing to do," the source said.
"I got caught up in the moment and proposed. I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet," Carter said.
Carter had proposed to Peniche, an ex-girlfriend of his older brother, Nick Carter, onstage in Las Vegas in front of an audience of 200 people on September 16.
