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.

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

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

    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.

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

    Jenni Callin Says:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
