Leslie Carter Dies at 25

Leslie Carter, sister of singers Nick and Aaron Carter, has passed away at the age of 25.

The aspiring singer married her husband, Mike, in 2008 and gave birth to a daughter in April of 2011.

Leslie‘s single “Like Wow” was featured on the Shrek soundtrack and hit the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2001.

“Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter,” the Carter family told Access Hollywood in a statement. “We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”

Our thoughts go out to Leslie‘s family and friends in this difficult time.

    What did she die from?

  • HPH

    Very sad hopefully not drugs

  • ck

    You would think if she was sick/had cancer, would have been mentioned. Very sad.

  • lgkj

    Who cares? We all know she was a pot head!

  • Disney22

    God bless her soul!

  • tara

    If it were anything besides drugs they would have mentioned it. It’s obvious. I really feel bad for her baby…so sad when even having a child doesn’t make you quit drugs.

  • funnymunny

    That’s incredibly sad; she was so young and her daughter will always miss her and grieve for her all of her life – may she rest in peace .

  • yeesh

    Oh, I better cut back before it happens to me! Can someone hide my stash for me?!?!

  • Sayer

    How did she die? Wow!

  • Charlie

    @funnymunny: Her daughter didn’t even get the chance to know her.

  • elle

    how sad her daughter isnt even a year old

  • Ouch!

    I wonder why! /irony
    What a disgusting and rotten family are the Carters…

  • Jenni Callin

    Regardless of whether it was from drugs or alchol, opposed to a disease or an accident…it is STILL a death. Still very sad. People who think death’s impact is diminished if it’s not “admirable” are jackasses.

  • A

    If any of her brothers rises to fame and suddenly becomes very rich/talented etc, THEN WE’LL KNOW.
    I don’t trust any of these ppl and many in that industry are sick, sick people.

  • Jeannie

    Sorry for her loss but if it was for drugs she should have thought about her daughter.

  • cam

    @Jenni Callin:

    Thank you! I could not agree more! No matter the cause – her life was cut short so young & she is someone’s mom, wife, daughter, granddaughter, etc. Prayers for her & her family.

  • Yoki

    Hahaha! This is funny!

  • http://@zimpypants Tori

    What a tragedy. Her daughter Alyssa was only 10 months old. Its all very strange considering Leslie was living up in Canada with her husband and daughter… I Dont know how/why she passed away in New York. I am so sad for the families loss… my heart aches for them RIP Leslie

  • Sarah

    Thats what that dirty white bitch deserves! >:)

  • Julia

    Wikipedia says she was murdered. Such a shame, I loved her on their show :(

  • Karih

    Someone is dead, show some humanity, bunch of l.o.s.e.r.s.!
    I hope life will give you a lesson, like someone dancing on the grave of someone you like, criticizing and laughing at your loss, that’s what you deserve for your lack of humanity.

    how can u say something so mean about a family that u dont even know.maybe u should just shut your mouth.if u cant say something nice then just shut up.

  • @anonymous

    What a vile thing to say about someone and you used “anonymous” to hide behind your comment too. I am thankfully not on the side of determining who gets to “use the earth’s resources”, but my guess is that people like you wouldn’t rate too high themselves.

  • Dirk

    Who cares? People die everyday. And much much more terrible things are going on in this world! Just cause shes a F-List celebrity we are supposed to care?

  • deea

    it could have been a post-partum depression not treated well, so sad :(

  • Jennica Panettiere

    Ignore the trolls!

    This is sooo sad! I remember buying the Shrek CD and her song was on it! It was one of the catchier songs on that soundtrack and I remember listening to it on my discman back in the day. Thank you for those memories, Leslie. So tragic. Rest her soul.
