Melanie Martin was emotional outside of the Lancaster, California home of fiancé Aaron Carter after his death at just 34. His on-again, off-again partner was seen crying on Saturday, Nov. 5 as she was comforted by two other individuals. At one point, she lifted her black sunglasses to wipe her eyes with a white tissue before later getting up and walking towards the home. She also took to TikTok to share a heartrending video of her sobbing while driving in the same blue velour tracksuit she wore outside of the home. “I can’t breathe,” she also wrote over a message posted to her Instagram account.
The Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) singer was found unresponsive in a bathtub by Melanie on Nov. 5 before a call was placed to 911 around 11 a.m., a rep for Aaron confirmed to HollywoodLife. “Everyone is so devastated right now,” the rep also said. Shortly after, his home was surrounded by Sheriff vehicles and paramedics, who surrounded the property in caution tape.
Aaron began dating Melanie around January 2020, and the two announced they were engaged just six months later in June 2020. Melanie gave birth to their only child, son Prince Lyrik, now 11 months old, in Nov. 2021. Before they welcomed the little boy, Melanie also suffered a miscarriage in early 2021.
Throughout their relationship, Aaron and Melanie had a rocky romance as they got back together and split several times — with both accusing each other of violence at different times. In Nov. 2021, Aaron posted a public message saying that he and Melanie were over. “Due to personal reason [sic] Melanie Martin and I have decided to go our separate ways,” he tweeted on November 30, 2021, just after the birth of their son. It appears they reunited before his death, however, as he celebrated her birthday with a loving message and dinner in June 2022. “Happy birthday baby I love you more than words just know we can get through anything!! #Family,” he captioned the photo of them both as they posed in front of a cake.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
