The DISTURBING 911 Call From Aaron Carter’s Housekeeper
MUSIC artist Aaron Carter was found dead in the bathtub of his home by his housekeeper who had been “yelling” for help on the phone with police.
The cops arrived at Carter’s home in Lancaster, California around 11am on Saturday to discover Carter’s body in the tub.
According to the 911 operator, FIRE/EMS units needed to be deployed at the estate for a “female yelling.”
The operator made a cryptic reference to “in the tub,” TMZ reported after obtaining the audio clip.
Neighbors said they heard Aaron’s employee screaming “he’s dead, he’s dead” when she discovered his body.
Officials pronounced Carter dead at the young age of 34, but no official cause of death has been reported as of yet.
Officials did tell TMZ that they will be investigating Carter’s past drug use.
Carter, who debuted his singing career in the late 1990s, has been very open about his opioid addiction.
He had recently checked into rehab for the fifth time, Distractify reported.
A rep for the pop star confirmed his death and said: “Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family.”
“Unfortunately without proper recovery facilities available in our country and open borders, this is why we have an epidemic.”
Carter leaves behind his fiancée Melanie Martin and his son, Prince, who only 11 months old.
Just hours after his death, Martin was pictured outside of Carter’s home and sobbed as friends consoled her.
In one picture, she can be seen burying her head in her hands as she broke down in tears.
Martin broke her silence on the tragedy in a statement to TMZ, saying: “My fiancé Aaron Carter has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it’s going to be a journey to raise a son without a father.
Carter rose to fame during the same time as his brother Nick, who was a part of the popular boy band the Backstreet Boys.
Nick, 42, said in an Instagram post about his brother’s death: “My heart has been broken today.
“Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded.”
“I have always held onto 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.”
Nick continued: “But the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here.”
During his teens Carter opened shows for the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears – he signed his first record deal aged nine.
The singer was best known for his cover of I Want Candy, as well as his singles Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) and That’s How I Beat Shaq.
