The Carter’s familial dysfunction apparently lives even amid death: While Leslie Carter, 25, was laid to rest over the weekend in upstate New York, brother Nick claims he was not invited.

Although it was reported today that Nick Carter, 32, was unable to attend sister Leslie Carter‘s funeral due to touring commitments, Nick tells TMZ that he was purposely kept out of the loop.

“I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic,” he says.

And although the Backstreet Boy didn’t get into specifics, he’s convinced that his family made a concerted effort to keep him from knowing about the service.

“There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister,” Nick states. “I am trying to stay healthy, positive, and focused.”

While most people were preparing for Super Bowl Sunday, the Carters quietly buried their daughter and sister who died last week from a purported overdose to prescription pills, reports E! Online.

The burial, which had around 65 people in attendance, took place at 4pm at Freay Funeral Home in Mayville, N.Y., near her father’s home where her body was discovered on Jan. 31.

“It was a very wonderful and touching ceremony,” an insider told E!.

Among the mourners, Leslie’s mother Jane and brother Aaron were present.

“The truth will reveal itself,” Aaron tweeted on the morning of Feb. 5 before the service. “I Love you Leslie soo very very very very very much!! virtually no words. You will always be my best friend.”
