News sites are reporting on the death of rapper and actor AARON CARTER. They say that Aaron’s body was found in his bathtub Saturday morning after receiving a 911 call that someone had drowned. Law enforcement is purportedly investigating the death, though no cause has been established yet.
Law enforcement sources have told TMZ … homicide detectives are on the scene, and there are no immediate signs of foul play. TMZ obtained an exclusive photo of police cars, paramedics and caution tape outside an Aaron’s home.
Aaron gained fame back in the late 1990s as a pop singer, releasing four studio albums by his self-titled debut album in 1997 when he was only 9 years old. After his first album sold a million copies, Aaron’s second album tripled that number. From there he became a regular on Nickelodeon.
When he was a teenager, Aaron used to tour with the Backstreet Boys during their heyday. His older brother Nick also partook in their fame as part of the hugely popular boy band. Allen Curtis transitioned into rapping as his music career progressed and he also appeared on Dancing With The Stars and acted in the Broadway production Seussical.
Aaron had tons of legal and substance abuse issues throughout the years, infamously appearing on “The Doctors” a few years ago and talking about the various pills he was taking. He also went to rehab multiple times.
In September, the “Fool’s Gold” singer disclosed that he “voluntarily” checked into a rehab center’s outpatient program to regain custody of her 11-month-old child. He and his new bride Melanie Martin welcomed their first child in November 2020.
He was only 34 years old, and his son is named Prince.
