Celebrity Family Has A Sad Secret


[BlindGossip] More than one person in this family has achieved fame and success in the music industry, and several others have been television regulars. One of the members of the family recently passed at a very young age. While it is usual for families to ask for privacy when they are in mourning, this family is doing everything they can to cover up the cause of de*th. It turns out that several members of the family have had similar struggles and they loathe the thought of having to discuss it in public.


It’s Leslie Carter, sister of Nick Carter and Aaron Carter. Source: TMZ

Leslie had starred in the reality series House of Carters along with her siblings. She was an aspiring singer, and her song “Like Wow”, was featured on the “Shrek” soundtrack in 2001.

She died suddenly yesterday in upstate New York.

We knew that Leslie was having a problem with drugs. TMZ is now reporting that the drug was Xanax., but our source named a different drug. Rather than speculate as to which source is correct, we will wait for the toxicology report.

Leslie had been getting help for her addiction to drugs, and we were sad to hear of her passing. She was a beautiful, sweet, and talented girl, a devoted sister, and a new mom.

From TMZ :

Leslie Carter was battling an addiction to prescription medication in the days before her death… and family members believe she died as a result of an overdose.

Sources close to the “House of Carters” reality star tell TMZ … the 25-year-old sister of Nick Carter had recently moved from Canada to Upstate New York to live with family members while she attempted to kick her addiction.

We’re told family members had attempted to rid the home of any prescription medication — including Xanax —  and were hopeful Leslie was on the road to recovery.

Sources say family members believed Leslie would be OK to stay alone in the home for roughly an hour yesterday while they ran errands … but when they returned, Leslie was unconscious.

Officials were called to the scene … but Leslie could not be saved.

We’re told Leslie’s 1-year-old daughter was not at home with Carter at the time of her death.

Both Nick and Aaron Carter have sought help for addiction and substance abuse issues in the past.

      It so sad. So it seem like they are talking about the Carter family, and I guess she died of a drug overdose.

    • kellybelly says

      You can’t overdose on Xanax. You only die if you’re drinking or something else with it.

    • redstilettos says

      Very sad. Do they not want the cause of death to be known because it’s drug or alcohol abuse or a congenital problem?

  1. ScruffyPinkConverse says

    Um, I’m going to say Leslie Carter. Her single, Like Wow!, was in the end credits of the first Shrek movie; her brother Nick is in the Backstreet Boys and Aaron is a singer and actor.

    • Singapore Slang says

      For sure. Marie has been very oddly detached and “business as usual” in attitude. Her son commits suicide and she’s pretty much back to work dancing and singing like nothing ever happened!

      And this def not the Jacksons. When have any of them ever been quiet about anything? They’d make up a personal struggle if it got them a tv special!

      • Singapore Slang says

        Changing my answer to the Carters. I just read the news. No cause of death listed yet.

    • Okayeah says

      What “several” Jacksons were ever television regulars? Janet was on Good Times a million years ago, but that’s it. The Osmonds seem like a much better fit.

      • itssunnyoutside says

        You know it could very well be the Jacksons. They had a brother who died very very young, the twin of Randy I think. And in the 70’s the Jackson 5 were regulars on the Ed Sullivan show and so many other variety shows from that time. Not to mention the fact that they are a very musically inclined family.

  2. irishinoz says

    This terrible news, has to be the carter family. May they have peace through this time. Rip x

  3. The Beagle says

    I know Michael Jackson wasn’t “very young” when he died, but he was still youngish to die, so I am going to go with the Jacksons.

  4. freaky007 says

    Even though it is a kind of sad item, I’ll go ahead and say it is the Aaron/Nick Carter family. Their sister just passed away, she was 25. RiP

    • TheBinch says

      I seriously doubt it’s Andy I think he died 30 years ago — but he did host or co-host “Solid Gold” for a while. And now I have revealed my middle-aged, Solid Gold-watching self to the world! My secrets are out!

  5. Scorpio13 says

    Scratch that didn’t see the word “recently”. I will go with my first guess of Michael Jackson and the Jackson Family.

  6. neartstarlet says

    I dont know why, but I immediately think of Will & Jada Pinkett Smith. I hope not though, I know they’re having marital issues, but I still like them together

  7. KissMyGrits says

    So sad…..I just read about Leslie Carter, sister to Aaron and Nick Carter, this AM. Give them their space so they can deal with their grief.

  8. BitterBlondin says

    It’s no secret that almost all the Carters have had drug issues. But I thought Leslie was clean, with her little girl and all. Sad.

    Leslie Carter
    sister of Nick and Aaron Carter died at age of 25 (yesterday) in New York

  10. mrsdarcy says

    The Jacksons, with Michael’s death at 50 being fairly recent and quite young. LaToya and Janet, and the boys from the Jackson 5 being the others in the family with success in music.

  11. dallasJAC says

    Nick and Aaron Carter’s sister, Leslie Carter, just died and the family is requesting privacy.

  12. GossipChik says

    Was a lurker, now a first time poster!! Love BG!!

    My guess is Leslie Carter, sister of Aaron and Nick.

  13. blohan says

    Nick and Aaron Carter’s sister just passed away at age 25…so sad, I immediately thought of some sort of addiction….young married mother of one small child too….very sad.

  14. NeedNoStinkinBadges says

    I hope this family and the individuals who are ‘struggling’ get whatever help they need. If privacy helps them deal with whatever is going on, so be it. I just hope that they aren’t using privacy as an excuse to ignore a larger problem.

  15. AmyWinelake says

    Aaron Carters sister Leslie just passed away at 25. They asked for privicy and I dont think they have released a cause of death yet.

  16. LiamForeman says

    Osmonds? Hasn’t Marie had one or two kids who died in the last five years? One of them was gay, so is that the similar struggle that several family members have had?

  17. yinyang says

    No clue but thinking Carter family seeing as the sister just passed and no details! So sad & my condolence to family!

  18. drakesavage50 says

    Leslie Carter. Aaron and Nick are famous in music. Also her family had that reality show and Aaron was on DWTS and that cooking show on Food network. This seems the most likely since she was 25 and there is no cause of death listed and no announcement of an intention to find one – leads me to believe it is known and being hushed up.

  19. malkatz says

    I guess we’re all in moderation guessing the Jackson family? Why does the site moderate similar comments? I like to imagine it’s because we’re right. 😉

  20. mt87f21 says

    The Carter family, Leslie Carter,the 25-year-old sister, recently passed away. So sad. Hopefully this will be a wake up call for them.

  21. sleepless says

    Nick and Aaron Carter = their sister Leslie passed away at age 25 on January 31st. Nick has a history of drug and alcohol problems, maybe that runs in their family.

  22. usadevolved says

    Looks like Michael Jackson’s kids. So I’m going with the dysfunctional Jackson family.

  23. mimipoo says

    Obviously the Carter family. The death of one of the sister’s has just been announced… very sad, she seemed like the nicest of the clan.

    Many will probably say it was drugs, but that’s not really a secret that, especially her brothers, had issues with that. There are rumors of a heart disease circulating, though.

    All the best to the family, either way.

  24. blessedjess226 says

    Why do I feel this is the Cyrus family??? Billy Ray, Miley, Trace and the sister (she’s a drummer) have all had more than mildly successful forays in the music business. Miley, Billy Ray and Noah all acted.

    • blessedjess226 says

      Hmm just saw a report that Leslie Carter passed away. Her siblings Nick and Aaron Carter were pop stars back in the day and supposedly she had some mild success. They all appeared on a failed reality-show too. So maybe it’s them.

  25. dclover says

    The Carter family. THere was a story on the radio this morning about Aaron & Nick Carter’s sister dying- cause of death not being released. The family is asking for privacy. Apparently she just had a baby last year. So sad.

  26. dee123 says

    My other answer is in moderation so i’ve decided to change after hearing that Leslie Carter sister of Aaron & Nick has died.

  27. rosierattle says

    The Osmonds is a good guess, Maries son passed away at a young age. You couldn’t say Michael Jackson was young. Also the reason he died has not been covered up, everyone knows what happened.

    • LolaVee says

      Everybody knows what happened to Marie Osmond’s son too. Cause of death was suicide, and it was never covered up.

  28. 15milliondollarbunny says

    You guys are missing the boat on this one. It’s Leslie Carter, the sister of Nick and Aaron Carter. She just passed in upstate NY, was only 25. The family has requested the “utmost privacy”. Remember, they’re not hiding the death, only the cause. Given her brothers history, has to be drug/drink related.

  29. sapphire27 says

    The Carters. One of the sisters just died. Aaron and Nick were both famous in the music industry, and the rest of the family was on TV for their reality show.

  30. bengalcat says

    def the Carter family. younger sister died at 25 recently aaron and nick having some success in music and tv de*th = meth

  31. misslouise88 says

    The carters.

    Nick and Aarons sister just passed away aged 25, the family has asked for privacy.
    First time posting :)

  32. dingopop says

    Nick and Aaron Carter? Their sister, aspiring pop singer, just died. Cause of death kept private.

  33. meroberts86 says

    The Carters. Leslie Carter recently died at 25. Aaron & Nick have achieved fame in the music industry and the whole family was featured on their reality show.

  34. Drew12345 says

    I am betting this is the Carter family (Aaron, Nick of BSB). Their sister Leslie just passed away at the age of 25. The only thing throwing me off is the TV bit but Aaron was on DWTS.

  35. Guestimate says

    Does this have anything to do with the recent announcement of the death of Leslie Carter (age 25)? Sister to Nick and Aaron Carter?
