TMZ is reporting this afternoon that pop star-turned TV star Aaron Carter was found dead in his California home earlier today after apparently drowning in his bathtub. Carter, who rose to fame as the younger brother of Backstreet Boys frontman NICK CARTER, became a pop sensation in the late ’90s and early 2000s. He later went onto appear in several reality TV shows, and re-entered the music industry in 2017. He was known for wild partying and drug use, even appearing on an episode of TV’s “The Doctors” in 2013 and touting his drug use.
While it’s hard not to speculate, toxicology reports have not yet been performed.
