LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Aaron Carter made a terrifying prophecy about dying young before his own sad death at the age of 34 following years of terrible personal difficulties.

After being detained for a DUI and marijuana possession in September 2017, Aaron entered treatment, according to a story from US Weekly at the time. The actor ominously said that as a child, he didn't think he'd live so long in an interview with the publication. "I thought I would die by 30,” he said. “Even when I was 13, 14, I thought, ‘Oh, my God. I’m going to die'. "Life, it was pretty tough,” he reflected on attaining stardom 21 years earlier at age 9. “I dealt with a lot of trauma, a lot of loss, a lot of loneliness. I just felt like I needed to get away.”

He was 6 feet tall and weighed only 115 pounds when he checked himself into rehab. "I’ve been burnt, My goal is to be the phoenix that rises from the ashes," he said, adding he was "shocked" to turn 30. "I had a different-style upbringing. I wasn’t able to go to school, have normal friends," he continued. "I wasn’t allowed to have friends over. They had to sign waivers that said if they killed themselves, we weren’t responsible. I was always working and flying to different countries. One minute my dancer’s my tutor and the next minute my grandma is my tutor. I was lonely even though I was performing for millions of people."

Brother to Backstreet Boy's Nick Carter, Aaron had a successful solo career and served as the Backstreet Boys' opener on a number of tours and shows. Carter started performing at the age of seven, and at the age of nine, in 1997, he launched his debut record. The Recording Industry Association of America certified Aaron's 'Party (Come Get It)', his second album, as triple platinum after its release in 2000, as per The Guardian.

Just two months ago, in September, Carter had checked himself into rehab for a fifth time, this time in an effort to reclaim custody of his 10-month-old baby, Prince, who was in the care of his fiancée's mother per court order. Carter, 34, said that he and his fiancee Melanie Martin had been denied custody of their child because of allegations of domestic abuse and drug usage. He claimed that the rebab stint was not required by the court and that he was only doing it to win his son back, according to LA Times.

“I decided to enroll myself into that program. This will be my fifth time in rehabilitation, mainly to take care of aftercare,” he said. “There’s been no relapses. I haven’t had any relapses ... it’s just triggers are big right now for me. You know, so, I just, I want my son back.”

Carter lost his sister, Leslie Carter to a drug overdose in 2012 and 5 year later lost his father as well. He said in an interview that he felt responsible for the death of his family. "I felt like I'd been responsible for the death of my sister, for the death of my dad, for my family falling apart," Aaron said teary eyed. He also revealed in an episode of The Doctors that he suffered from multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety and manic depression.
