LANCASTER, CALIFORNIA: Just a few hours before his tragic death, Aaron Carter invited a beautiful young girl to spend time with him. He texted Sonya Cruz, 24, to come over and even offered to pay for an Uber and transport her home himself.

Cruz, who has been featured in international publications such as Harper's Bazaar and Maxim, answered that she would "talk tomorrow after you get up" and ended the message with "xox" and a heart emoji. Carter, 34, however, did not wake up again. “I do regret not spending more time when he would ask to,” Cruz told Daily Mail. “I just had no idea something like this would happen and did think he would always be in my life,” she added. “He was a complete angel and very kind. May he rest in peace.” Cruz claimed that the text exchange was her final one with Carter before his death. On November 5, he was discovered dead in his bathtub at his residence in Lancaster, California, 80 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Though she couldn't recall how frequently she had seen Carter, she claimed to have known him for the past several months before his death. Cruz, who goes by the alias @vampiexox, shared the final text exchange she had with Carter as an Instagram story and declared she would never talk to the media about their connection. “Time for mourning,” she wrote. “The last thing @vampiexox would do is answer questions or speak to the press. She hasn’t done that in the past. What makes u all think she do it now (sic).” In the messages, many of which are misspelled, Carter wrote, “You shouodnsee me soon.” He then added three more, “ASAP, Like tomorrow,” and “My placeee.” Cruz responded but she covered up much of what she said with a note saying “Rest in peace Angel.” What can be made out are the words “talk tomorrow after you get up? Xox.” Carter then responded “OK sweetheart,” followed by “Or you could just coke now.” He then corrected the word “coke” to read “come.” “I’ll Uber you and drive you back whatever,” he wrote adding a red rose emoji.
