Aaron Carter led a troubled life
Being a child star may have affected the way Aaron Cater acted in situations and throughout his adulthood.
He admitted to heavy drug use during an appearance on The Doctors in 2017. While he didn’t test positive for illegal drugs, there were opiates and benzodiazepines in his system. Aaron claimed they were for his treatment of anxiety and sleeping issues.
His family life wasn’t great either. Aaron and his mom appeared on Marriage BootCamp: Family Edition in 2019 to try to work through some of their issues. That same year, Aaron revealed he was sexually abused by his older sister, Leslie, who had died of a drug overdose in 2012. He then directed accusations at his brother, Nick, who has vehemently denied the allegations and put a restraining order against Aaron. His twin sister, Angel, also got one against Aaron.
There have been a lot of issues with his son’s mother and his ex-fiancée, Melanie Martin. The couple has had very public battles, and he threw out several accusations about her.
As of now, the cause of death has not been officially made public.
