A few days ago, we learned the sad news of the death of Aaron Carter, the brother of Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys singer), and although investigations have been carried out to determine the causes of his death, his manager released details of his emotional state.
The cyber bullying that affected Aaron Carter and that could have influenced his cause of death
Cyber bullying “handicapped” Aaron Carter over a period of time. He told his manager to Page Six. “It was like a nightmare,” Taylor Helgeson says of the unrelenting hate the late singer received.
“It was non-stop. So relentless and, yes, she affected him.” He added her.
It should be remembered that Aaron Carter was found tragically dead at the age of 34 on November 5. He was reportedly surrounded by disturbing finds at the time, which you can find out by clicking here.
Although the manager has previously said he doesn’t think suicide was an option for the artist, his mental health has taken a hit due to internet trolls.
“I wouldn’t go as far as to blame that entirely (for Carter’s death), but I saw that it brought him down over a long period of time.” Said the Big Umbrella Management executive.
“He never chose his life”
“He never chose his life. I don’t think he’s been given the same tools that many of us have to navigate life in a way that leaves us room to live good, sustainable lives.” Taylor Helgeson says the hatred for Aaron Carter sometimes surpassed the digital space, recalling a time when the singer was interrupted during a concert.
“It really affected him, and he didn’t let it show in the performance, but when he came off stage, he was so sad.” Said the manager. “He wasn’t angry, he was sad.”
Taylor Helgeson adds that after Aaron Carter left the venue that night, he went on Twitter. In order to see more people posting about the show and continuing their vitriol on social media.
“He would look at these things and it would hurt so much,” said the music industry worker, adding that Aaron Carter just “couldn’t seem to stay away” from social media.
“He felt he had something to prove”
Taylor Helgeson says she once told Aaron Carter that she would offer to manage his social media accounts for him, so he wouldn’t see the hate online. But that would “never happen” because the brother of the Backstreet Boys star felt the need to hit back at the haters.
“Many days, he felt like he had something to prove.” Said the manager. “He’s just holding his own in all this mess.”
Taylor Helgeson points out that Aaron Carter has received a lot of love online since he passed away, which he appreciates. But he says the “hard part” is that he still sees “the other stuff.”
“That’s the big reason we’re talking about.” Point out the composer raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota (United States). “Because someone needs to say something different… He was a wonderful, wonderful person.”
Taylor Helgeson says that Aaron Carter was unable to speak to Nick directly before he died to make amends. But he says the Backstreet Boys member knew his younger sister had regrets.
“I know they had plans to get together, to forgive.” Says the executive. “I don’t know exactly when, but I know they wanted to, that was the idea.”
He finally assured the medium that Aaron said the following: “‘When the time is right, we’ll work this out,’ and that’s the irony, right? ‘The time is right.’”
