Aaron Carter is reeling from the latest development in the legal drama involving his estranged siblings. 

At a hearing in Los Angeles on Tuesday, judges extended his twin sister Angel Carter's restraining order, which she  first filed in September, along with their brother Nick Carter. Aaron is now prohibited from coming into contact with Angel and Nick and their families for a year, according to court documents obtained by E! News.

TMZ reported that the Los Angeles judge told Aaron he is "too dangerous" to own firearms and ordered him to surrender any in his possession. 

"I am devastated by what happened in court today," Aaron wrote on Instagram on Tuesday. "My sister lied over and over in an effort take away my 2nd amendment rights and she did it on behalf of my brother to silence me talking about how he raped and sexually assaulted multiple women."

Aaron has repeatedly accused his older brother of sexual misconduct. Nick publicly denied singer Melissa Schuman's rape allegation, and in 2018 the L.A. County District Attorney's Office announced it would not investigate an anonymous sexual assault claim brought against Nick due to the expiration of the statute of limitations. 

Schuman attended Tuesday's hearing in Los Angeles alongside Aaron, who also posted a photo of them high-fiving outside of the courthouse. 

"I will abide by the judge's order, but I will not stop speaking on behalf of victims such as Melissa Schuman. I am saddened by my family and what they have done to me. Your lies have broken my heart," Aaron's statement concluded.

In Angel's initial restraining order filing, she claimed that during a phone call on Sept. 5, 2019, Aaron "threatened the lives" of her, her husband Corey Conrad and their 8-month-old daughter Harper. Aaron allegedly told her, "I have people that would come and harm you." 

In his request for a restraining order, Nick claimed his brother told him he "harbors thoughts and intentions" of killing his then-pregnant wife and unborn second child

Just days ago, Aaron was treated at a Florida hospital for exhaustion and weight loss after visiting the siblings' mother. He appeared back in Los Angeles on Monday. Over the past week, he has gone on rants on Instagram Live, often while video-chatting with fans.
