On Tuesday, singer Aaron Carter’s claimed that they thought that the artist died of a heroin overdose. Melanie Martin, the singer’s ex-girlfriend, told TMZ that the Los Angeles police had ruled out drowning because they had not found water in the singer’s lungs.
The singer was found in a bathtub full of water on November 5, 2022. At the young age of 34, he passed away. Page six-story added that Carter’s mother, Jane Carter, and Ms. Martin are still waiting on a toxicology report to ascertain if there was a drug overdose.
Ms. Martin further disclosed that she had received text messages from Aaron and an “unknown person who told Aaron that he owned $800 for an unknown chemical.”
The musician said he “didn’t need the substance anymore,” but the other person insisted he still pays. Aaron questioned the person if he was “being threatened.”
Ultimately, Ms. Martin thinks Aaron did meet the person and take the substance “that could have killed him.”
The musician’s debut album was released in 1997 when he was nine. He was born on December 7, 1987, in Tampa, Florida.
In the United States alone, three million copies of his sophomore album, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” were sold, making him an instant teen idol. He became a regular on preteen Nickelodeon and Disney programming, including an appearance on the hit “Lizzie McGuire.”
Carter toured with the boy band The Backstreet Boys — his elder brother is a member — and Britney Spears and saw his following album, “Oh Aaron,” go platinum.
As he aged, the musician’s reputation declined, but Carter stayed in the public spotlight, performing on several reality shows and off-Broadway musicals and releasing new songs online.
But, his family issues, including apparent turmoil among the five Carter siblings and family fights over money, became tabloid fodder.
At his 2011 treatment announcement, Carter told followers, “the main thing in life is not to be afraid of being human.”
The performer went from playing one-off gigs after leaving treatment to touring across Canada. In 2018, he issued a new studio album.
He had filed a bankruptcy petition in 2013 over millions in debt, much of it tax-related. Similarly, Carter had multiple brushes with the law, often for possession and reckless driving.
