New information is coming out about the death of Aaron Carter, a 34-year-old singer who was found unresponsive in his bathtub on Saturday morning.
There are so many individuals out in the world today who think that just because you have money, fame, or anything else to do with celebrity culture, you must be the most satisfied and happy person on the planet. Well, reality has painted a much different picture.
It seems that the more you have of these things, the less you are satisfied, the more you are depressed, and the chances are increased you will turn to drugs to self-medicate and try to deal with the pressures that come with the celebrity lifestyle.
You have to remember, when you have a ton of money, everyone comes out and tries to be your friend. Thing is, most of them only want to leech off of you. They have no interest in loving you, accepting you, and standing by your side through thick and thin. You can’t trust anyone. It’s truly a lonely road.
Audio clips obtained by TMZ show that Carter’s housekeeper called 911 in a panic when she found her boss in a “tub.”

The report said that a 911 operator can be heard saying that FIRE/EMS units are needed at Carter’s house. The operator says that a female is yelling and that someone is “in the tub.”
Another woman who called 911 about Carter said, “I’m calling about Aaron. I was just calling to see if there’s any way you guys could send an officer to go check on him?” The same person who called said that Carter was a “heavy drug user” and worried that something might be wrong.”
Anthony Cheval, a local photojournalist and Carter’s neighbor, told The Sun (U.S.) that he and his nurse wife ran over when they heard about Carter on a police scanner.
“I have a police scanner for work and heard the call come in that there was an unresponsive male in the bathtub,” Cheval said. “My wife is a nurse and we headed over and banged on the door, she had her AED [automated external defibrillator] with her.”
“A woman answered the door and was screaming ‘he’s dead, he’s dead’ but wouldn’t let us in because she’d already called the cops,” the neighbor said.
Cheval said he talked to Carter’s on-and-off girlfriend and Prince’s mother, Melanie Martin, outside the house.
“Melanie drove up from Orange County, she was distraught,” Cheval stated.
“My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away,” Martin told TMZ in a statement after the loss. “I love Aaron with all my heart and it’s going to be a journey to raise a son without a father. Please respect the privacy of my family as we come to terms with the loss of someone we love greatly. We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality. Your thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated.”
Carter had a history of trouble with drugs and mental health, as well as with the law.
Page Six says that the former reality star said in September that he had “voluntarily” checked himself into an outpatient program at a rehab center. The singer who turned into a rapper was fighting to keep his 11-month-old son.
Carter’s son, Prince, and other family members, like his brother Nick Carter of the “Backstreet Boys,” will carry on after him.
