Aaron Carter: US singer was found dead

Aaron Carter (1987-2022) is dead. The US singer was found dead in the bathtub of his home in Lancaster, California, around 11 a.m. (local time) on Saturday (November 5). The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed this to the US gossip portal "TMZ".

According to the report, the police were immediately alerted. So far, there is said to be no evidence of a crime. Further details on the cause of death are unknown.

Carter's fiancee Melanie Martin has since confirmed his death in a statement. "My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it will be a journey raising a son without a father," she is quoted as saying by TMZ. The family are asking for privacy "as we come to terms with the loss of someone we love dearly. We are still coming to terms with this unfortunate reality."

Aaron Carter had battled drug and drug addiction for years. Backstreet Boy singer Nick Carter's brother, 42, went into rehab again in September after child welfare services threatened to take custody of his son away from him.

Little Prince was born in November 2021. Aaron had an on/off relationship with his mother, Melanie Martin. Discussions between the two have repeatedly been publicly held on social media.

Aaron Carter was born in Tampa, Florida in 1987 and has been in the limelight since he was a child. At the age of nine he released his first album, which received gold status in Germany. Three more records followed in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

At the time, he also went on tour with the Backstreet Boys alongside his brother, who were really hyped at the time. With Aaron Carter, however, the wave of success flattened out over time and the teen star made mostly negative headlines. The two brothers also got into a fight.

In 2019, Aaron Carter publicly reported on his health problems on US television. He suffered from anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, manic depression and multiple personality disorders for years.
