Aaron Carter has died at the age of 34.
The singer, rapper, and television personality was found dead at his home in Lancaster, Calif., according to TMZ. The outlet was the first to report the news.
Carter’s body was found in his bathtub, TMZ reports. Sources reportedly told the outlet that authorities received a 911 call that a male drowned.
The singer, who was the younger brother of Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter, had a pop career starting in the late 1990s.
After its release in 2000, his sophomore album, Aaron’s Party (Come and Get It), went triple platinum, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In 2006, Carter appeared along with his siblings, Nick, B.J., Aaron, Leslie, and Angel Carter on the E! realty series House of Carters. His sister Leslie died in 2012 at 25.
In 2017, Carter came out as bisexual in a Twitter post. He said he would be open to dating a man if one “comes into my life and sparks an interest.”
“I grew up in this entertainment industry at a very young age and when I was around 13-years-old I started to find boys and girls attractive,” the singer, who had high-profile relationships with Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff when he was younger, wrote at the time. “There were years that went by that I thought about, but it wasn’t until I was 17-years-old, after a few relationships with girls, I had an experience with a male that I had an attraction to who I also worked with and grew up with.”
He confirmed he was bisexual in an episode of The Doctors.
However, in 2018, Carter said his comments were “misconstrued.”
“Yeah, no,” Carter said during a podcast interview when asked if he would date a man. “It was more so just a story that happened when I was like 17 with somebody, and I can find men and women attractive, but when it comes down to it, I think it was a little misconstrued.”
Carter added, “I see myself being with a woman and having kids. I want to have a family.”
Over the years, Carter has been public with substance use issues. The Hollywood Reporter reported that he had gone to rehab earlier this year to try to regain custody of his son, Prince.
