Carter's manager Helgeson spoke in a series of interviews about the star's final words to him and his health condition in the days before his death. The deceased singer, 34, spent most of his life struggling with drug addiction. Reportedly, the bathroom where he was found dead contained cans of compressed air and prescription medications. Prior to his death, he said that he had been sober for almost five years.

Martin posted a screenshot addressing a recent article on Helgeson's interviews. She wrote, “This man did nothing to help Aaron. He enabled him so much. All he did was put a wedge between Aaron and I for the party to start." Martin added, “He tried to take over and brought him things that should have NEVER been brought to anyone. Let alone an addict.” She also accused him of taking advantage of Carter. “He overworked him when he was not well. He used him in life and now he’s still using him after death getting paid for interviews! This man wanted to get Aaron‘s career back but this wasn’t the time to do so,” she asserted. “Aaron needed help and needed rehab to be sober before he could revive his career. This man was no hero. He had a hand in his relapse,” she added.
