"What scares me about that drug panel is that your sister perished from a drug overdose", Stork explained.
In a two-part interview, the troubled pop star also spoke about his frequent cosmetic surgeries and need for painkillers, admitting that when he can not get a prescription he will obtain drugs illegally off the street.
The 29-year-old musician has had a tough few months in the spotlight, which has seen him arrested for driving under the influence, coming out as bisexual and being involved in a auto crash.
Stork also noted that Carter's sister, Leslie, had died of a drug overdose in 2012.
Carter also said he does get his prescription drugs "off of the streets".
"I've never smoked crack in my life".
"I can't take this anymore", the 29-year-old says as he admits to claims in the promo that he is in a "crisis". "My doctor has prescribed me Xanax, Klonopin, Oxycodone ..."
Last week, it was reported that police officers visited his St. Petersburg, Florida home three times within 24 hours after receiving concerned calls about his welfare.
It's been a troubling couple of weeks for Carter, but it sounds like he wants to start a new journey. "It's not ok. I don't take it every day", Carter said, sharing that he takes the medications for stress and anxiety and that he isn't doing any illegal drugs. My sister passed away from it.
"To be honest with you, it's not going to be easy", he continued. "I don't know", the star admits as he tears up in a piece to camera.
These comments notwithstanding, the singer's representatives have stated that Carter is "fine" and is focused on his scheduled performances in his ongoing tour. One can't help but conclude that he's likely to find a bigger audience there than at his concerts.
