It looks like Aaron Carter's party is crashing down on him pretty quickly.

 

A former employee is seeking $50,000 from Carter, claiming the former child star and brother of Nick Carter, of Backstreet Boy fame, refused to pay him for his work on Carter's website.

 

In the lawsuit, a man named John Cantu said he had agreed to develop and maintain a website for Carter. But after requesting payment last month, Cantu claims the 28-year-old singer dismissed him as an "intern" and refused to pay, according to TMZ.

In addition to suing Carter, Cantu fired back by crashing the website and replacing its contents with a link to his personal Twitter account, urging visitors to "follow a genius" instead. The website is now offline.

 

Though he has yet to release an official statement, Carter seemed to fire back at Cantu and at the lawsuit via social media: "There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. I rest my case," he tweeted on Sunday.
