Aaron Carter dead at age 34

Aaron Carter was found dead at his home in Lancaster, Calif. on Saturday, Page Six can confirm. He was 34.

Multiple sources also told TMZ Saturday that the “Aaron Party” singer’s body was found in his bathtub.

Law enforcement was reportedly dispatched to the premises at around 11 a.m. local time after they received a call that a male had drowned.

Per TMZ, detectives are investigating the death as a homicide but the outlet was told that is standard procedure.

An official cause of death is unknown and it likely will not be disclosed until an autopsy and coroner’s report has been completed.

Carter rose to fame as a child star in the late ’90s with hits like “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq.” He was also known for being the younger brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter.

However, as Aaron grew older, he lived a complicated life surrounded by substance abuse, relationship problems and mental health issues.

As recently as September, the “Fool’s Gold” singer revealed that he had “voluntarily” checked into an out-patient program of a rehab center in order to try and regain custody of his 11-month-old son, Prince.

He and his on-again, off-again fiancée, Melanie Martin, welcomed their first child in November 2020.

Aaron previously said that he was seeking help to manage “triggers” that made him want to smoke marijuana, and also admitted to taking Xanax as part of a “regimented medication” plan to keep him “clean from huffing dust.”

Then, just a few days ago, he was pulled over by police on suspicion of a DUI, according to TMZ.

All the while, Aaron had been in an on-again, off-again relationship with his child’s mother, Melanie Martin, and the pair often made allegations of abuse against one another.

Earlier this year, the model accused Aaron of fracturing three of her ribs during a dispute. However, the “House of Carter” star denied those claims.

Martin then said on Instagram later on that she made up the “untrue” claims because she was suffering from postpartum depression at the time.

Aaron’s rep could not immediately be reached for comment on the singer’s reported passing.
