“Aaron has taken care of the legal and financial matters that required his attention and returned to the wellness facility to complete his program,” his rep told Us on Saturday. Us has learned that he’s finishing a 90-day program in California.

As previously reported, Aaron checked into rehab at the end of September after a turbulent summer that saw him arrested for driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.

A source told Us earlier this month that Carter “did really well while he was away in rehab.”

 

**The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ board met in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 14, and voted to revoke studio boss Harvey Weinstein’s membership in the wake of several sexual harassment and assault allegations.

The board had three options: to do nothing, revoke his membership or take back the best-picture Oscar Weinstein won for Shakespeare in Love in 1999.

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Saturday that the board of governors, which includes Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Whoopi Goldberg, voted to strip away Weinstein’s lifetime membership.
