Aaron Carter shops at the Beverly Center in LA after he was granted restraining order against ex Lina Valentina amid allegations she attacked him
Singer Aaron Carter enjoyed some retail therapy at the Beverly Center in Beverly Hills, California Wednesday, amid a tumultuous timeframe in which he broke up with his girlfriend amid accusations of domestic violence.
Carter, 31, donned a black T-shirt and matching ballcap with light grey jeans and Dolce and Gabbana sneakers.
The St. Petersburg, Florida native earlier this week was granted a restraining order against his ex Lina Valentina, who must remain at least 100 yards away from the singer, who said in court docs that she’s been physically and emotionally abusive to him, TMZ reported Tuesday.

The Sooner or Later singer told the court that Valentina ‘carries a knife with her,’ ‘has threatened to stab [him]’ and on July 30, punched him in the face, The Blast reported this week.
Carter also asked the court to order Valentina be ordered out of his Lancaster home he resides in, but it was a moot point as she isn’t listed as a resident.
She’s due in court September 3 for a hearing in which the restraining order could be made permanent.
Carter issued a statement earlier this month indicating that he and Valentina had ‘decided to go our separate ways,’ as they ‘couldn’t seem to get past [their] differences and the relationship eventually turned unhealthy.’

He said that he felt breaking up was ‘the mature thing to do,’ and he’s forging forward with optimism.
‘I’m going to keep focusing on my music, my tour and my fans,’ he said. ‘Hopefully my soulmate is out there somewhere and I’ll meet her soon.’
Carter’s lawyer Jan Michael Morris told E! News Tuesday that the pop star was ‘not pursuing the restraining order at this time,’ and ‘wants to move on with his life and has resolved his issues with Lina.’
