"I'm coming to get you baby," Carter tweeted on Sunday, following his arrest and subsequent release from prison.

Variety has reached out to Carter's representatives for comment.

Carter was due to perform in Kansas City, Mo. Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, but cancelled the gig just hours before his arrest, citing "transportation issues." He has yet to cancel a meet and greet and acoustic performance scheduled for Tuesday in Birmingham, Ala.

Carter is best known as a child and teen pop star, and the brother of Backstreet Boys performer Nick Carter. The now-29-year-old released his EP "LøVë" on Feb. 10. Outside of his music career, Carter has made cameos in TV shows including "7th Heaven," "Lizzie McGuire," and, more recently, "Angie Tribeca." He also placed fifth on Season 9 of "Dancing With the Stars" and appeared in an off-Broadway production of "The Fantasticks." Parker is a photographer.
