It had been publicly acknowledged by Carter himself that he suffered from drug abuse and a huffing addiction; huffing is the act of getting high on inhaling fumes of household items like glue or paints. He was also diagnosed with multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia and acute anxiety.

While fans mourn the loss of a much-loved performer, his ex-Hilary Duff had posted a bittersweet note as a tribute. Her post reads, “For Aaron- I’m deeply sorry that life was so hard for you and that life was so hard for you and that you had to struggle in- front of the whole world. You had a charm that was absolutely effervescent… boy did my teenage self love you deeply. Sending love to your family at this time. Rest easy.”

Carter isn’t just known for his own musical projects - but also with his brother Nick Carter, a former member of the iconic band Backstreet Boys. Nick also posted a heartbreaking note on his social media handle, with pictures of him and his brother. His caption said, “My heart is broken. Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded. I have always held on to the hope that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss, but the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz. Now you can finally have the peace you could never find here on earth….God,Please take care of my baby brother.”
