Aaron Carter’s fiancée Melanie Martin has reacted to his death after the pop singer was found dead in a bathtub at his California home over the weekend.
Martin shares 11-month-old son Prince with the late singer. “My heart is completely broken over the passing of my fiancé Aaron. I knew he was struggling, and I tried everything to help him,” she told People. “He has a very independent and strong personality, and I couldn’t help him in the way I felt he needed it.”
Responding officers reportedly found multiple cans of compressed air in the singer’s bathroom as well as several prescription pill bottles.
If ingested (otherwise called huffing) compressed air, can cause permanent brain damage that can lead to irreversible neurological deficits, according to the American Addiction Centers. Huffing is a type of substance abuse that involves inhaling fumes from household substances in order to experience a high. Also known as sniffing or inhalant abuse, this practice is usually undertaken to feel euphoria or experience visions or hallucinations; however, it is an extremely risky form of substance abuse.
His cause of death has not yet been released to the public.
