Sad news today for singers and brothers Aaron and Nick Carter whose sister, Leslie died on Tuesday at the age of 25 according to numerous media outlets. It has been reported that Leslie married her husband Mike in 2008 and gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Alyssa Jane Ashton back in April 2011. The family had starred in their own reality TV series, House of Carters on E! in 2006.
Leslie also followed her brothers’ famous footsteps recording a single for the 2001 Shrek soundtrack. Online reports are stating that Leslie died in upstate New York but no further details have been given as of yet about the cause of death.
Today, a statement was posted on Backstreet Boys’ member Nick Carter’s website.
Nick Carter is thankful to the many people and the fans who have shared their wishes and prayers during this tragic time. We want to let fans know the tour will go on as promised. “Performing is cathartic to me and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform.” Also, we ask that the press respects Nick’s privacy during his time of grief.
Nick Carter is scheduled to host a pool party Saturday night in Atlantic City at the nightclub, the Pool After Dark inside Harrah’s Resort.
