Tragic Aaron Carter ‘died without a will’ leaving the state to decide who will’ inherit his assets including $800,000 house which he had out on the market shortly before his death
Former teen hearthrob and singer, Aaron Carter, passed away earlier this month. The 34 year old was found by his housekeeper on November 5th, and died without a will in place. This leaves the division of his estate up to the state of California.
Carter began performing at age nine, had three bestselling albums by age thirteen, toured with Britney Spears and performed with the likes of Liza Minelli, Gladys Knight, and Missy Elliott. He later transitioned into acting and went on to experience a series of public controversies and struggles in his young adult years. Insiders told reporters that Carter quickly spent whatever money he made.
It has been reported that Carter was advised by his attorney to make a will upon the birth of his 11-month-old son Prince, whom he shares with his ex girlfriend, Melanie Martin. Carter was looking to resolve his custody battle with Martin before entering rehab. He had previously admitted to having a huffing addiction.
