Bobbie Jean Carter, sister of Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter (43), died on Saturday at the age of 41 in Florida. This is what “TMZ” reports. The exact cause of death is therefore not known. Mother Jane Carter told the US celebrity portal: “I have been in shock since I found out about the sudden death of my daughter Bobbie Jean.”

She will need time “to process the terrible reality that this has happened for the third time. When I am able to think clearly, I will provide a more detailed explanation, but until then I ask that you Let me grieve in peace.”

Bobbie Jean’s brother and former teen star Aaron Carter (1987-2022) died in November 2022. He drowned in his bathtub after taking drugs. The death was ruled an accident. In 2012, his then 25-year-old sister Leslie (1986-2012) died of an overdose. The family also includes Aaron Carter’s twin sister Angel Carter (36).

“However deeply a parent feels the loss of a child, the suffering of a young child at the loss of a parent must be even greater,” Jane Carter continued in her statement. “That’s why I would like to ask all compassionate people to say a prayer for my eight-year-old granddaughter Bella, who has already lost her father and is now without her mother too.”

Bobbie Jean Carter has been involved in her brothers’ music business in the past, according to TMZ. She worked for Aaron Carter as a make-up artist on his tours. She also appeared in eight episodes of the family’s reality TV show, “House of Carters.” Bobbie Jean Carter, who is said to have also battled addiction problems, later withdrew from the public eye.
