Complicated Relationship With His Siblings 

Sadly, Aaron Carter did not have a happy life. He claimed that his childhood was abusive and that he grew up in a difficult family, which led to his addiction. 

His addiction also soured his family members, especially his siblings. 

His relationship with his brother, Nick Carter, was strained. The Backstreet Boys member and his twin sister, Angel Carter, filed a restraining order against Aaron in 2019. 

The order was issued after Aaron allegedly threatened to k*ll Nick, his wife, and their unborn child. 

Nick had tweeted about the same thing, saying: 

"After careful consideration, my sister Angel and I regret that we were required to seek a restraining order against our brother Aaron today. In light of Aaron’s increasingly alarming behaviour… we were left with no choice but to take every measure possible to protect ourselves and our family."

As per the restraining order, Aaron was ordered to remain at least 100 feet away from Nick, Kitt, their kids, and other family members. 

In response, the late singer stated: 

"I am astounded at the accusations being made against me and I do not wish harm to anyone, especially my family." 

In the same year, he made allegations of se*ual abuse against his late sister, Leslie, who had died of an overdose in 2012. 

He claimed that the abuse started when he was 10 and ended after three years. He also mentioned that his sister used to abuse him when she failed to take her prescribed medication for her bipolar disorder.

How Much Was The Net Worth Of Aaron Carter? 

Aaron Carter, a singer/songwriter, was worth $400k at the time of his death. However, he was the richest of the Carter siblings, with more than $200 million in riches at the height of his career. 

Aaron claimed his parents stole his money, which they took when he was a minor. According to the California Child Actor's Bill, Carter's parents were supposed to have put 15% of his earnings into a Coogan Account. 

However, as per Carter,  

"I got, like, $2 million when I turned 18 years old. I should have had at least $20 million in my account." 

After turning 18, he learned that he owned $4 million in tax liens. In 2013, Carter filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in a court in Florida. His representative stated: 

“The overwhelming majority of the debt that he’s asking to be discharged is from more than 10 years ago, and that was when he was a minor and not in control of his own finances.  

“So this is a problem that’s existed for a long time that he’s now made the decision to do some".

According to CNN, "Carter had accrued at least $2 million in debt and had only $917 in his checking account and $60 cash in his wallet at the time he filed the bankruptcy petition".  

He settled all of his tax debt in 2014. 

Later, in a conversation with Oprah: Where Are They Now in 2016, Carter gave an update on his finances three years after he filed for bankruptcy. 

He stated: 

“I’m not broke. I mean, I don’t make all the money in the world right now, but I’m doing the best that I can. I do a lot of shows and I write a lot of music. I’m rebuilding my life…No one has any idea what happened to me.”  

He further said: 

“I hadn’t taken a break. It was almost like 10 years that I had not stopped working for my family. No disrespect to my brother, but when Nick was 18 years old and I was 10 years old, I was just kind of starting to make lots of money. I made over $200million in my career before I even turned 18 years old.' 

Aaron bought a house in 2019 in Lancaster, California, for $430,000, which he put on the market for $599,000 in July 2020.

He continued: 

"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….I love you baby brother."  

Similarly, Aaron's twin sister Angel Carter also paid a tribute to her brother. She also shared an Instagram post, stating: 

"To my twin… I loved you beyond measure. You will be missed dearly. My funny, sweet Aaron, I have so many memories of you and I, and I promise to cherish them. I know you’re at peace now. I will carry you with me until the day I die and get to see you again."
