Aaron Carter, 34, the brother of famed pop icon and Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter has been ‘found dead in his bathtub’ at his home in Lancaster California. 

Law enforcement said that they received a 911 call at 11 am on Saturday saying that ‘a male had drowned in the tub.’

Homicide detectives have been dispatched to the scene, but there is no information or evidence of foul play at this time.

Emergency services have been spotted outside Carter’s Lancaster home which has been cordoned off with police tape.

Carter rose to fame as a child star, first as a singer and later as an actor in film and television shows like ‘Lizzie McGuire’ and ‘7th Heaven.’

Carter, who opened for the Backstreet Boys on a 1997 tour, shot to fame in the 90s releasing four studio albums, starting with his self-titled debut album in 1997 when he was only 9 years old.  

The 34-year-old notably battled addiction for many years, facing legal troubles and entering rehabilitation while continuing with his music career, according to E!.

He also publicly feuded with many, including his brother Nick, whom he accused of trying to put him under a conservatorship, similar to the one placed on Brittney Spears. 

In 2019, he revealed on ‘The Doctors’ that he was diagnosed with ‘multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression,’ according to CNN.

The troubled celebrity is survived by his son Prince.

Prince’s mother and on-again-off-again girlfriend, Melanie Martin, posted to Tik Tok crying just minutes after the announcement. 

Martin can be seen driving while crying into the camera which is filming the short video.

In the embattled rapper’s last performance before his untimely death he can be heard singing that ‘he’ll be gone but it’s not for long’.

The video was posted to Instagram just a day before the shock announcement.

Carter has two sisters, one of which is his twin, Angel and Leslie, who passed away in 2012 at the age of 25 from a drug overdose.

Carter was pulled over on suspicion of DUI on Tuesday last week after his on-off girlfriend Melanie Martin ‘called the police’ – with the embattled singer later cleared of any wrongdoing.

TMZ reported that the I Want Candy hitmaker was driving an RV in Antelope Valley around 10.45am  when police got a call about a driver possibly driving under the influence and weaving through traffic.

Officers conducted field sobriety tests on the star and he was found not to be under the influence.

In a bizarre turn, he later locked his keys inside the RV with photos showing the singer getting into the vehicle via the roof hatch to retrieve them.

Carter’s brother Nick and his Backstreet Boys bandmates have yet to comment. The group are scheduled to play The O2 in London Sunday night as part of their European tour, as well as a previously scheduled appearance on QVC to promote the group’s new Christmas album.
