Bobbie Jean Carter died last Saturday (December 23) in Florida at the age of 41. This was reported by “TMZ”. The exact cause of death is not known. Her sister Angel Carter (36), twin sister of Aaron Carter (1987-2022), who also died, has now said goodbye in an Instagram post. "You had a great sense of humor and a lively spirit. Growing up, I was your baby and you were my best friend," she wrote alongside throwback photos of her sister. Life hasn't been fair to Bobbie Jean, "I know that. Sometimes it feels like you never had a chance, no matter what happens," Angel Carter continued.
It is incredibly important for children to experience innocence "instead of being burdened by trauma, pain and suffering, especially at such a young age," the article continues. "I know why Leslie, Aaron and now you ended up in this situation. I share the pain we experienced growing up and I'm sorry you didn't have a chance for a better life." We need to “break down barriers, reduce stigma and create a society in which the search for psychological support is met with understanding and encouragement.”
Bobbie Jean's brother and former teen star Aaron Carter died in November 2022. He drowned in his bathtub after taking drugs. The death was ruled an accident. In 2012, his then 25-year-old sister Leslie (1986-2012) died of an overdose. The family also includes Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter (43).
Angel Carter gave an interview to People magazine last August in which she discussed her "toxic family dynamics" in the past. Speaking to the tabloid, Angel recalled her parents Jane Schneck and Robert Gene Carter's alcohol abuse. The parents' addiction and Aaron and Nick's early contact with fame and wealth had a negative impact on the entire family: "Fame and money have taken over in our family."
