Singer Aaron Carter dies at the age of 34

Singer Aaron Carter died Saturday at his home in California, his rep told NBC News. He was 34 years old.

Deputy Alejandra Parra of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said officers were called to her home on Valley Vista Drive in Lancaster shortly before 11 a.m. and found “a deceased person.”

Further details were not immediately available.

“We are extremely saddened and shocked to confirm the death of Aaron Carter today,” his representative said in a statement. “His cause of death is currently under investigation. We ask that you give the family time and they will have more information when it becomes available. We cannot express the outpouring of love that is coming.”

Carter, the brother of Nick Carter of the popular Backstreet Boys, rose to fame as a pop star in the 1990s. He released his self-titled first studio album in 1997, followed by “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It )” in 2000, which went triple platinum. It included the hit singles “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq.”

The former child star also ventured into acting, appearing on “Lizzie McGuire” and the ABC competition show “Dancing With the Stars.” He and his siblings also had their own reality TV show, “House of Carters,” which aired in 2006.

In recent years, Carter has been open about mental health issues and drug addiction, saying during a 2019 interview on the TV show “The Doctors” that he suffered from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression.

That same year, Nick Carter filed a restraining order against his younger brother after he allegedly said he had thought about killing Nick’s wife.
