Aaron Carter, singer, television personality and younger brother of Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter, died Saturday (Nov. 5). He was 34.

A source confirms his death to The Hollywood Reporter, and it was also reported by TMZ. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department told THR that a suspicious death took place at Carter’s address but could not confirm the identity.

Representatives for Carter and his brother did not immediately respond to requests for comment.


Carter got his start opening for the Backstreet Boys on a 1997 tour, and his debut album, Aaron Carter, was released later than year, reaching gold status.

His follow-up album, Aaron’s Party (Come and Get It), was released in September 2000. Aaron’s Party peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and went triple platinum. It featured the singles “I Want Candy” and two Billboard Hot 100 hits, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” (No. 35) and “That’s How I Beat Shaq” (No. 95). He supported the album as an opening act for Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears on the Oops!… I Did It Again Tour.

Carter dabbled in acting, appearing on shows including Lizzie McGuire and making his Broadway debut in 2001 as JoJo the Who in Seussical the Musical.

He starred alongside Nick and their siblings B.J., Aaron, Leslie and Angel Carter on the E! unscripted series House of Carters in 2006. Leslie died of a drug overdose in January 2012 at the age of 25.

Other television credits included competing on the 2009 season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars, finishing in fifth place, and on the Food Network cooking battle series Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off in 2012.

Carter was a gossip-site fixture and known for headlines surrounding his personal life, dating back to his early years as a teen heartthrob.

He has had multiple rehab stays, most recently entering earlier this year in an effort to regain custody of his son Prince. He had previously entered rehab back in 2017 following an arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence and marijuana charges.
