Leslie Carter's Death: Was She Jealous Of Her Brothers' Fame?

A source says that Leslie Carter’s inability to match her brothers’ superstardom was a huge factor for her depression and pill-popping.

While it’s a fact that Leslie Carter, 25, died of a drug overdose on Jan. 31, what drove her to do so is unclear. A source, however, tells People that her envy to be in the limelight was a major reason she fell into a downward spiral.

“She thought she would become the next famous Carter sibling,” states a former manager to one of her brothers.

Although Leslie “loved the attention” she received from the family’s brief stint with reality on E!’s House of Carters and had a single released on Shrek 3‘s soundtrack, fame didn’t hit her the way it did with older brother Nick, 32, and younger bro, Aaron Carter, 22.

“She was always happy for her brothers, don’t get me wrong,” the source says. “But it was tough for her.”

Regardless, Leslie’s stepmom, Ginger, believes she had much darker issues to deal with, claiming the young mom “had a long history of mental illness and was on medication for her depression.”

I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Ok seriously!!! How can you even ask that. And Aaron is 24 not 22, so I think you should get your facts straight before writing don’t you think. Plus nick continued his tour for Leslie. He dedicated his song “falling down” to her. I went to his show in Boston and he showed incredible strength. That should be what your writing not this sickening piece, so vet over your pathetic self and realize that your bashing someone who is loved and that you have no idea who they really are

This article is sickening. Instead of posting a crap article like this, why aren’t you concentrating on the strength Nick had when he performed and dedicated “Falling Down” to Leslie?
Show some f***ing respect for the Carter family.

R.I.P. Leslie

I am so sick of reading articles like this. obviously your source isn’t that great since you don’t even know how old Aaron is. He is 24 not 22! Show some respect for this family. I’ve been lucky enough to spend a bit of time talking with Aaron on a few occasion’s and even after talking to him who are any of us to judge what happened behind closed doors. We should all be praying for the Carter Family instead of starting rumors that can not be proven!

this article is sickening.
How dare you question the motives and put jealousy as an issue. As if the family isn’t having a hard enough time coping with this tragedy. And you posted previously that post partum depression was involved along with a history of mental illness. These are illnesses that shouldn’t be used as excuses for you thinking you can say bad things. From friends who have met her she was a wonderful, sweet woman and mother. In these times of hate we should be showing support to the family and respect!
Why don’t you concentrate on the strength that Nick Carter had when he performed at Irving Plaza last night, dedicating a song “Falling Down” to her as he played acoustic guitar and sang. Not a single word was said from the crowd. Complete silence and candles and paper hearts were held in the air in SUPPORT. This is the way to get to people. By support. SO drop the accusations of who/what/why and just leave it at a tragedy happened and it’s time to move on and respect the family and their wishes for privacy.

i don’t know if she was jealous or not, but everything i witnessed on that show once upon a time screamed “TRAINWRECK”, from the top down. i imagine most of those kids have their own struggles with addictions and depressions or something. the alcohol seemed pretty free-flowing, and not in a young carefree way…
