Aaron Carter’s fiancée is speaking out following the death of her longtime partner and the father of her only child.
Melanie Martin’s comments come after Carter’s manager, Taylor Helgeson sat down for an interview with Page Six. Helgeson opened up about the last time he saw Carter.
Aaron Carter’s Fiancée Speaks Out After His Manager Sits Down For Tell-All Interview
According to Helgeson, he claimed he was with Carter just two days before his sudden and tragic passing on November 5. “He looked thin. He was extremely tired. He just looked like he needed to be doing anything but working. He looked like he needed to be taking care of him.”
“He didn’t seem okay physically … [but] mentally, he was the most excited I’ve seen him in months. He was very intelligent and he was very conscious of what people wanted to see from him.”
Helgeson went on to say that he and Carter had discussed going back to rehab but Carter was resistant because wanted to get his son back. “We were proposing [what] would have been … three months in Utah just on detoxing and kind of formulating new physical habits within your body.”
“[Carter] was saying, ‘I’m going to get my kid back and then I’m going to do this,’ and I was saying, ‘If you do this, I’m definitely going to get you your kid back,’ and that was the disagreement.”
Shortly after his interview, Martin spoke out via a statement on her Instagram Story. “This man did nothing to help Aaron,” Martin wrote about Helgeson.
“He enabled him so much. All he did was put a wedge between Aaron and I for the party to start. He tried to take over and brought him things that should have NEVER been brought to anyone. Let alone an addict.”
Martin continued, claiming that Helgeson took advantage of Carter, adding, “He overworked him when he was not well. He used him in life and now he’s still using him after death getting paid for interviews!”
“This man wanted to get Aaron‘s career back but this wasn’t the time to do so. Aaron needed help and needed rehab to be sober before he could revive his career. This man was no hero. He had a hand in his relapse.”
Helgeson had been Carter’s manager for 8 months before his passing.
As Mamas Uncut previously reported, Carter died on November 5, after his housekeeper found him in his bathtub unresponsive. Information from his ongoing death investigation revealed that police allegedly discovered evidence of compressed air canisters and various medications in Carter’s bedroom and bathroom.
Carter was just 34 years old at the time of his passing. He was set to celebrate his 35 birthday in just one month.
“Happy birthday to my baby boy Prince Lyric Carter ????❤️????. Today is going to be a tough one for me but I know your daddy is playing birthday songs for you up in heaven I love you baby boy!!!????????❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️????????????????????????????????,” Melanie wrote.
Aaron has, for the most part, been quite open about his battle with addiction to substances and huffing. However, his official cause of death has yet to be revealed.
Carter has since been cremated and his family is determining how they will celebrate his life.
