Carter’s bail was set at $4,610, and he was released on bond around 2:30 p.m. on Sunday. However, Parker remained in jail, though she is eligible for bond.

On Sunday, Carter's older brother, Nick Carter, reached out to him via Twitter.

"To my brother: I love u no matter what & if u feel the need to reach for help, I am here and willing to help you get better," Nick wrote. "Family isn't always easy, [but] we're all here for you."

Carter had a concert with Flo Rida scheduled at Kansas City Live! in Kansas City, Missouri, on Saturday, and an appearance scheduled in the same city on Sunday. The singer's team tweeted a few hours before his Kansas City concert on Saturday that he would not make the show "due to transportation issues."
