Aaron Carter Passed Away At The Age Of 34

Aaron Carter, the brother of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter and the singer who launched his self-titled first album at the age of nine in 1997, died on Saturday. He was 34 years old at the time.

Taylor Helgeson, Carter's manager at Big Umbrella Management, confirmed his death. Carter's family and management will issue a statement soon.

Police were responding to a 10:58 a.m. complaint of a suspicious death at Carter's home in the 42000 block of Valley Vista Drive, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy Alejandra Parra. 

Parra stated that "a deceased individual" was discovered at the residence, but the identification had not been confirmed. Investigators are still on the scene.

Carter started his career in music by obtaining a record deal after opening for the Backstreet Boys in 1997. In December 1997, his debut studio album, which included the smash single "Crush on You," went gold, catapulting him into the spotlight at a young age.

Carter released his second album, "Aaron's Party (Come and Get It)," in 2000. The album, which included smash singles like "That's How I Beat Shaq" and "I Want Candy," went triple platinum, landing Carter as the opening act for Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys tours. 

The actress also appeared on Nickelodeon and Disney Channel shows including "Lizzie McGuire" and "All That!"
