Inside Aaron Carter's Relationship With His Twin Sister Angel

Aaron Carter has tragically died at the age of 34. On November 5, the former pop sensation was discovered dead at his home in Lancaster, California, per TMZ. Numerous insiders told the outlet that his body was located in a bathtub. According to law enforcement, a 911 call revealed a male's drowning. At this point, there has been no evidence of foul play. However, there is an ongoing investigation into the details of Carter's death.

Carter is survived by his twin sister Angel Carter, who he famously feuded with at times throughout the years. The Carters have had their share of dark family drama, with Aaron and Angel's heated relationship being no exception. As reported by E! News in 2019, Aaron's brother Nick Carter and his sister Angel filed a restraining order against him. In a tweet, Nick explained the reasoning, alleging, "In light of Aaron's increasingly alarming behavior and his recent confession that he harbors thoughts and intentions of killing my pregnant wife and unborn child, we were left with no choice but to protect ourselves and our family." 

Sadly, Angel made similar allegations — which was incredibly sad given what their relationship once was.

Details on Aaron Carter and Angel's court drama

Prior to Aaron Carter's death, he and his twin sister Angel were estranged. According to E! News, Angel claimed Aaron had threatened harm against her husband Corey Conrad and their daughter Harper during a phone call on September 5, 2019. Allegedly, Aaron told her, "I have people that would come and harm you." Aaron then fired back regarding the restraining order on his Instagram Story (via People), writing, "I My sister lied over and over in an effort to take away my 2nd Amendment rights and she did it on behalf of my brother [Nick] to silence me talking about how he raped and sexually assaulted multiple women."

In 2021, Aaron broke up with his girlfriend Melanie Martin, who he shared his son Prince with. Announcing the news on Twitter, he seemed to blame Angel for the split, adding, "There has been a very big lie and my sister communicating w my ex fiancé ruined everything considering she knew what angel tried to do to me in court thanks angel you ruined my family." However, it wasn't always bad between the two — Aaron even walked Angel down the aisle at her wedding in 2014, and Laguna Beach's Alex Murrel shared a heartwarming snap of the pair on the dance floor.

At the time of this writing, Angel has not made a public statement about Aaron's tragic death. 

Aaron Carter's relationship with his late sister was strained, too

Unfortunately, Aaron Carter also had some much-documented drama with his sister, Leslie Carter, who died of a drug overdose back in 2012, as detailed by ABC News. But it wasn't until several years after her death that Aaron accused his big sister of sexually abusing him. In 2019, Aaron took to his Twitter account to detail a harrowing account that allegedly took place between him and Leslie. 

He wrote (via Page Six): "My sister Leslie suffered from bipolar and took lithium to treat it. She never liked the way it made her feel and when she was off of it she did things that she never meant to do I truly believe that. I was 10 years old...." Aaron added, "My sister raped me from the age of 10 to 13 years old when she wasn't on her medications and I was absused [sic] not only sexually by her but by my first two back up dancers when I was 8 years old. And my brother absused [sic] me my whole life."

Yet, it was older brother Nick Carter who revealed in 2013 that his family blamed him for Leslie's death, which is one of the reasons why he didn't attend her funeral.

Relations between the Carters still remain strained

Aaron Carter told Dr. Phil McGraw that his relationship with his siblings was always "toxic" mostly due to their upbringing. He said (via "Today"), "The communication is something that I'm still to this day trying to work on. ... It's tough when you come from a background like that and a home that is really up and down and roller-coaster." Aaron added that ,soon after Leslie's death, things took a turn for the worse when his family talked "not about her death and not about the actual passing and what had occurred, (but) more about themselves. ... And then I started to get blamed by the rest of the family." He also added that a lot of them had pointed their fingers at him for not being there enough for Leslie.

Despite the allegations that Aaron made against his sister Leslie, he got a giant blue butterfly tattoo in honor of her memory back in March, per People. In his Instagram post, Aaron called Leslie an "amazing mother," and someone that he always wanted to make proud. While fans will always be curious about the dark secrets the Carter family tried to hide, fans hope that Aaron's pain has finally turned into peace.
