According to TMZ, American musician Aaron Carter passed away on Saturday. Carter rose to popularity around the turn of the millennium with his smash album “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).” At 34 years old, he.
According to the entertainment publication, Nick Carter, the brother of Backstreet Boy, was discovered dead in his bathtub at his Lancaster, California, home.
Police located a body at Carter’s home when they arrived at 10:58 am, but they were unable to formally identify the deceased as of yet, a police spokesperson told AFP.
An AFP inquiry was not immediately answered by Carter’s manager.
The musician, who was born on December 7, 1987, in Tampa, Florida, started playing at the age of seven and put out his debut album in 1997 when he was nine.
Three million copies of his second album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” were sold domestically, making him a teen idol. He started appearing frequently on preteen Nickelodeon and Disney programmes, including one episode of the well-liked “Lizzie McGuire.”
Carter toured alongside Britney Spears and the boy band The Backstreet Boys, of which his older brother is a member. His subsequent album, “Oh Aaron,” went platinum.
Carter continued to be visible to the public despite the musician’s waning reputation as he aged by participating in a series of reality shows and off-Broadway performances.
However, his personal problems—including apparent conflict between the five Carter brothers and family disputes over finances—became tabloid fodder.
When Carter’s admission to a treatment centre was made public in 2011, the actor told his followers that “the main thing in life is not to be afraid of being human.”
The musician started performing one-off gigs after getting out of rehab, followed by a Canadian tour. In 2018, he issued a further album.
He had filed for bankruptcy in 2013 due to massive debt, a large portion of which was tax-related. Additionally, Carter had multiple legal run-ins, mostly related to possession and reckless driving offences.
He started talking about his arrests and his thin build in 2017, which had sparked allegations that he was unwell or doing drugs.
He reported recovery in 2018 after being admitted to a different treatment facility for prescription drug abuse related to anxiety and sleep problems.
He told the Daily Mail earlier this year that he wanted to stop being perceived as a “train wreck.”
