Nick Carter Talks About How He’s Healing One Year After Aaron Carter’s Death
Last November, the world was shocked when it was revealed Aaron Carter was found dead inside his bathroom at his house just outside of Los Angeles. It’s believed he accidentally drowned in the bathtub after taking some drugs.
The 34-year-old singer had struggled with addiction for most of his life. He never could get fully sober, despite efforts from his family, including his brother, Nick Carter.
The Backstreet Boys member talked to E! News this week, revealing how devastating his little brother’s death has been.
No matter what he and I had gone through in our lives, we always were able to make amends, always were able to get back to that place—and now I can’t anymore and it hurts. It’s still unbelievable to me. I’m still processing the whole situation and trying to make sense of it—because it hasn’t. But I’m hoping that one day I can make sense of it all.
He was reportedly holding back tears as he talked about his brother. It’s clear he had so much love for him. Thankfully, Nick has a strong support group around him, including his wife and three kids.
My children are my everything. If I lost everything—if I wasn’t a Backstreet Boy anymore, if I didn’t have the opportunity to still perform for people and entertain them—as long as I still had my kids and still had my family, I’d be OK. All this stuff on the outside doesn’t matter to me.
Sounds like he has a great head on his shoulders.
