Teen pop singer Aaron Carter has resolved his personal and financial dispute with his mother, who plans to resume her role of helping manage his career.

“I’m looking forward to putting my family back together and working together side by side with all my children,” Jane Carter, the singer’s mother, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Thursday.

Last month, 16-year-old Aaron Carter issued a statement alleging his mother had taken more than $100,000 from his bank account without permission.

His parents have been his managers for 10 years. Jane and Robert Carter separated in March and are seeking a divorce.

Family lawyer Scott Salomon said the Carters met Sunday night in his Fort Lauderdale office to discuss the issue.

Aaron, younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, is no longer filing for legal emancipation to cut off his relationship with his mother, Salomon said.

“All financial misunderstandings have been resolved between Aaron and his parents,” Salomon said.

Salomon accused people involved in the singer’s last tour of “putting misstatements in his head” that led to the dispute.

Aaron Carter is living in Marathon with his father. His latest album, “Most Requested Hits,” was released last year.
