Aaron Carter has worried fans after he was hospitalised with worrying weight loss during a period of personal drama in his life.

The 31-year-old singer posted a photo on Instagram on Thursday which showed him lying in a hospital bed while hooked up to an IV.

It would seem from the pic that he has suffered a reasonable amount of weight loss.

Aaron geo-tagged the snap which indicated that he was at the Ascension Sacred Heart Emerald Coast, which is a medical centre in Destin, Florida.

The singer, who lives in Southern California, captioned the post: "Mommas gonna take care of me."
