‘Thin, tired and frail’: Aaron Carter was physically run-down in days before his death, claims manager
LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Aaron Carter's manager claims in a heartbreaking new interview that the former star appeared "thin, tired and physically frail" in the days leading up to his tragic death at age 34. The singer was found dead in his bathtub at his home in Lancaster, California, on Nov 5. According to his manager Taylor Helgeson, who spoke to the artist two days before his death, he had health problems.
Helgeson, who had been with him for eight months, said, "He looked thin. He was extremely tired. He just looked like he needed to be doing anything but working. He looked like he needed to be taking care of him. He didn’t seem okay physically … [but] mentally, he was the most excited I’ve seen him in months. He was very intelligent and he was very conscious of what people wanted to see from him." Carter's cause of death has not yet been determined by the LA County Coroner's Office due to the lack of toxicology data but Helgeson does not think the actor committed suicide because he was "prideful and had so much going on." He lived a life marred by drug addiction and the bathroom where Carter died was said to contain compressed air cans and prescription tablets that were discovered by police officials.
Carter had been reluctant to enter a rehabilitation facility, according to the star's manager, and the two were discussing it. They pondered spending three months in Utah "detoxing and formulating new physical habits," with Carter stating he wanted to concentrate on obtaining custody of his one-year-old son Prince before heading for treatment. Melanie Martin's mother is currently taking care of Prince, the child he shared with his on-and-off fiancée. Helgeson told Page Six that by mid-2022 Carter claimed to have felt "stressed out" and hadn't slept in a "couple of days" but after obtaining some rest, he asked his manager to assist him in drafting a will which was never finished. The provision of Prince, according to Helgeson and the rest of his crew was a top goal.
Carter's cremation was recently made public. His twin sister, Angel, will hold his ashes, reported TMZ, who got the singer's death certificate. According to the paperwork, his mother Jane was the first to alert the police about her son's death. Carter's cause of death is not stated on the death certificate. Angel posted a sorrowful tribute to her brother on Instagram after learning of her sibling's terrible death. “To my twin… I loved you beyond measure. You will be missed dearly. 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.”
