The Backstreet Boys pay tribute to Aaron Carter at London gig, his brother Nick collapses after moving tribute


Nick Carter was overcome with emotions on Sunday during his first performance with the Backstreet Boys following the death of his younger brother, Aaron Carter, on Saturday. Aaron was 34 years old.

The 42-year-old singer broke down in tears between songs with the band at London’s O2 Arena as Kevin Richardson joined fans in mourning the loss of the ‘I Want Candy’ musician who died at his home in Lancaster, California.

“Tonight our hearts were a little heavy because we lost a member of our family yesterday,” Richardson said just after the band sang “No Place.” A video montage of the band’s family members played on the screens, with the final shot showing a photo of Nick’s little brother with “Aaron Carter 1987-2022”.

“We just wanted to find a moment on our show to acknowledge that. Nick’s little brother, Aaron Carter, passed away yesterday at age 43,” Richardson said, mistaking Aaron’s real age as 34.

Aaron and Nick had a rocky relationship that was often displayed publicly in various arguments on Twitter or on talk shows.

Nick said his “heart was broken” as he opened up about Aaron’s death on Instagram on Sunday.

“Even though my brother and I had a complicated relationship, my love for him never faded,” he wrote. “I always held out hope that he would one day, somehow, 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 addiction and mental illness are the real villain here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. Love you Chizz .Now you can finally have the peace you could never find here on earth…I love you my little brother.”

Aaron battled addiction issues over the years, but had just recently performed on stage and attempted a comeback. He is survived by his 11 month old son, Prince Lyric.
