Let me start out by saying these two began dated when they were 13 years old. THIRTEEN. That’s pretty much saying they once held hands and told their friends they were boyfriend-girlfriend. So, why not give it a try now that they’re adults?
After Aaron Carter went off on Twitter about how Hilary Duff was the “love of his life,” I’ve got to say I did my fair share of research into their relationship, which took place from 2000 to 2003 and don’t see why they shouldn’t get back together. Why not, as Hil would say.
Hilary Duff & Aaron Carter: Get Together Again
Hilary and Aaron, both 26 now, have quite a bit in common. Both became stars extremely young. Aaron came out of the shadow of his big brother Nick Carter, opening for the Backstreet Boys at the age of nine. Meanwhile, Hilary landed her big movie role in ’98, when she was 10, starring in Casper Meets Wendy.
Sure, they were on and off for three years and he reportedly dated Lindsay Lohan during one of those “off” times. In 2006, Aaron said he and Hilary started dating on his 13th birthday — Dec. 7, 2000.
So, while it sounds like they may have been young in love (ok, they were young and in love) it was actually a long relationship.
“We kissed, and we hugged, and we’d hold hands, and go to the movies. I was actually dating her for like a year and a half,” he said in the interview. Hilary “really got her heart broken for me. I’m sorry for that.”
Well, apparently he was more heartbroken than he showed.
Now, Aaron’s back working on music. He’s currently in Nashville recording again, and we know that Hilary’s doing the same — she just released a new song, “Hurt,” right before publicly splitting with husband Mike Comrie — so why not rekindle a new flame?!
It’s worth a shot! Why not take a crazy chance? What do you think HollywoodLifers, should they meet up and see if they still have any chemistry? Should they just fully move on? Let me know what you think!!
