Nick Carter’s reaction to the death of his brother Aaron at the age of 34: ‘Please, God, look after my baby brother.’

Aaron Carter’s older brother, Nick, expressed his heartbreak following the singer’s death at the age of 34 in an Instagram post on Sunday, saying that despite their “complicated relationship,” his love for Carter “has never ever faded.”

“I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed,” Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter wrote in a caption alongside photos of the brothers over the years. “Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here.”

“I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know,” he continued. “I love you Chizz, now you get a chance to finally have some peace you could never find here on earth…. God, please take care of my baby brother.”

Nick Carter’s statement on Sunday comes after a family source told CNN on Saturday that Carter, who rose to fame as a young boy with songs like “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” was found dead in his bathtub.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told CNN that the department responded to a call for help at Carter’s Lancaster, California, home around 11 a.m. on Saturday. where a deceased person was discovered, local time

Aaron’s twin Angel, Nick Carter’s sister, paid tribute on Instagram, writing, “To my twin… I loved you beyond measure.”

“My funny, sweet Aaron, I have so many memories of you and I, and I promise to cherish them. I know you’re at peace now. I will carry you with me until the day I die and get to see you again.”

The singer has previously spoken openly about his struggles with mental health, but in an interview with CNN, he denied having substance abuse issues.

Carter’s relationship with his siblings was strained at times: in 2019, Nick announced that he and Angel had filed for a restraining order against their brother, alleging in a statement that his youngest brother harbored “intentions of killing my wife and unborn child.” Aaron Carter denied the allegations, saying he wished no harm to anyone.

“For Aaron – I’m deeply sorry that life was so hard for you and that you had to struggle in-front of the whole world,” Duff wrote on Instagram.

“You had a charm that was absolutely effervescent… boy did my teenage self love you deeply,” she added. “Sending love to your family at this time.”
