According to a source close to the family, Aaron Carter, the younger brother of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys and a former child pop performer, has passed away. He was 34.
Around 11 a.m. local time on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to a call for assistance to Carter’s Lancaster, California home, where they discovered a deceased person.
The source claimed that he was discovered dead in his bathtub.
There was no mention of a potential cause of death by the authorities.
Carter is survived by his 11-month-old baby, Prince. Carter originally rose to stardom as a youngster with pop songs like “I Want Candy” and “Crush on You.”
The singer’s first studio album, “Aaron Carter,” came out in 1997, and earlier that year, he opened up for the Backstreet Boys. The year 2018 saw the release of “Love,” his fifth and last studio album.

After coming out as bisexual in 2017, the musician received an outpouring of love and support from his followers and other celebrities.
It has been weighing on my chest for almost half of my life, but there’s something I’d like to express that I feel is vital for me and my identity, Carter said on Twitter. “This doesn’t make me feel bad, it’s just a weight and load I’ve carried around for a while and would like to have taken off of me.”
He continued by saying that he “started to find boys and girls appealing” when he was about 13 years old.
Years passed during which I entertained the idea, but it wasn’t until I was 17 years old, following a number of relationships with females, that I had an encounter with a man to whom I felt attracted and who I had also grown up and worked with.
In a 2019 “The Doctors” episode, the singer talked openly about his struggles with schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, manic depression, and severe anxiety.
In one clip posted on the show’s Facebook page, Carter referred to a plastic bag containing numerous medication bottles as “my reality” and remarked, “This is my reality.”
In 2017, Carter and his then-girlfriend Madison Parker were traveling through Habersham County when they were stopped in Georgia on suspicion of DUI and marijuana possession.
According to an earlier, the musician later said in an interview that he doesn’t drink and denied using drugs.
He said, “I don’t need your help.” “What I need is for people to see that I make mistakes just like everyone else in this world because I’m a human being,”, but I would never jeopardize my life or the life of my partner,” he said.
Carter, who was born on December 7, 1987 in Tampa, Florida, grew up with his older brother Nick and his three sisters Angel, B.J., and Leslie.
