Now Aaron Carter really has something to cry about.

The 21-year former Dancing With the Stars contestant -- known for tearing up on-air early in the competition after being criticized by the judges -- owes the IRS more than $1 million in back taxes.

According to court documents, Carter -- the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter -- owes more than $965,000 from 2003 alone. An additional $45,350.11 is also owed from income earned in 2006.

In a statement, Carter's manager Johnny Wright tells Entertainment Tonight: "It is unfortunate that while Aaron was a minor, his finances were grossly mismanaged by his previous team which has lead to the current situation of which he was unaware of until today. Aaron is working with a new team to take appropriate actions towards speedy resolution of the matter and looks forward to putting this behind him and moving forward with the next stage of his music career."
