Aaron Carter’s family wants his son to inherit his estate.
The mother of the late singer Jane Carter told TMZ that although she has yet to meet her 12-month-old grandson, Prince, she wants him to be the beneficiary of his father’s assets as the family did not need the money.
Jane added that she wants to have a relationship with her grandson and Aaron’s fiancee, Melanie Martin, who is currently in charge of the child.
After Aaron was found dead in the bathtub of his California home at the age of 34 on November 5, his mother asked her daughter Angel, Aaron’s twin, to file a petition to serve as administrator of his estate, believed to be worth $500,000 .
Melanie told Us Weekly last week about the financial arrangements: “I don’t want any problems or stress over Aaron’s estate.
“I want Prince to be taken care of and want Aaron’s legacy to live on… whoever wants to be in Prince’s life can be in Prince’s life.”
Aaron’s cause of death is yet to be determined, pending toxicology results.
But it is said that the singer, who battled addiction and mental health problems for years, was found with tablets and cans of compressed air next to him.
His Backstreet Boys singer, Nick Carter, 42, has said it was “difficult” to perform on stage the day after Aaron Carter was found dead.
He told Extra about the aftermath of his younger sibling’s death and how his bandmates supported him when he decided to perform in London hours after his death.
Nick said: “It was very emotional for me, having my guys with me. There’s the old saying, ‘The show must go on,’ which has been with us for years, but that night, I didn’t know what to expect.
“I didn’t know what was going to come of it, going on that stage. Getting the reaction from the fans was definitely comforting, and it meant a lot to me.”
Nick was seen sobbing at the Backstreet Boys concert in November, when the group paid tribute to the late singer by playing ‘No Place’ as pictures of the siblings played on the screen.
He had posted a tribute on Instagram before the gig, saying: “My heart is broken. Although my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never faded.
“I’ve always held on to the hope that somehow, someday, he would want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help he so desperately needed. Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss, but the truth is that addiction and mental illness are the real villain here.”
