Singer and reality TV star Aaron Carter dies aged 34


Singer and reality TV star Aaron Carter died on Saturday at the age of 34, multiple media reported.

Carter, the younger brother of Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, was found dead at his home in Lancaster, Calif., according to TMZ. The tabloid was the first to report Carter’s death, which was later confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter.

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 911 call saying someone had drowned at a Lancaster address on Saturday morning when officials found Carter’s body, according to KTLA.

Carter began his career opening for his brother’s boy band on their 1997 tour, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Carter released her self-titled debut album the same year at just 9 years old.

Her second album, which featured a popular cover of “I Want Candy”, went triple platinum. Carter opened again for the Backstreet Boys, as well as Britney Spears on her “Oops!…I Did It Again” tour, after the album’s release, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Carter has also dabbled in television, with roles in “Lizzie McGuire” and “7th Heaven” and a reality series called “House of Carters” with several of her siblings.

The former child star had previously struggled with drug addiction, entering rehab for the fifth time in September this year, according to the Los Angeles Times.
