Lance Bass Remembers His "Quirky, Funny" Friend

“It’s taken me a little while to gather my thoughts as the news about @aaroncarter is incredibly devastating. I wanted to share one of my first memories of Aaron: When I was around 17, the @nsync guys and I were staying at the same hotel as Aaron in Germany,” his tribute began. “He was around 9 years old at the time. I was in my hotel and kept hearing a little kid run up and down the hallways. I opened the door and saw Aaron sprinting around, banging on the guys’ hotel doors and pretending to throw up on people. He ran into my room and instantly we were buds. He quickly became the little brother to all of us and was known for being quirky, funny and always trying to make people laugh.”

Bass continued to explain how he watched Carter go through high highs and low lows.

“Through witnessing Aaron’s struggles and having countless conversations with him, I’ve learned so much about addiction and mental health. It makes me so angry and sad to know that it got the best of him and unfortunately those who enabled him turned a blind eye,” Bass wrote. “His good friends and his family did absolutely everything they could and this will forever be an incredible loss. I know Aaron is finally at peace and I’m sure he’s playing jokes on his loved ones that have passed. My prayers go out to @nickcarter @angelcharissma and family as they grieve this incredible loss. Will miss you.”

Days before his death, an anonymous female caller sent in a tip about Carter huffing compressed air.

The Blast reported on the 9-1-1 call that has gone viral on TikTok.

Anonymous Female Friend Of Carter's Warned Police He Was Huffing


Carter was last seen alive at 2AM on Friday, November 4th, according to law enforcement sources.

His cause of death has yet to be revealed, but the surfaced TikTok audio and new reports from the crime scene shine a bright light on what may have caused his death.

The TikTok audio was shared by user AUNTIE_OK on Sunday.

The clip features an anonymous woman speaking to 911 dispatchers reportedly made three days prior to his body being discovered by his housekeeper.

“I was just calling to see if there’s anyway you guys could send an officer to go check in on him. The thing is, he’s a very heavy drug user and he’s inhaling computer duster and he was doing it all night,” a female told dispatchers. “They got into a huge fight and she ended up leaving.”

The male dispatcher tells the concerned woman, “Yeah, she actually called in earlier and stated that she was going to go check up on him and call back. I don’t believe she ever did.”

It’s believed the woman they’re referring to on the phone call is Carter’s fiancée, Melanie Martin.

“Has Aaron made statements since you last spoke to him about potentially hurting himself or committing suicide or anything,” the dispatcher asked.

“He hasn’t made statements about hurting himself, but he’s made statements about like hurting other people,” the female caller responded. “Another thing to, just to note, he’s been abusing his animals and she has videos of it. So, I don’t know if that would help either. He’s very, very, very ill. He is on the verge of death.”

The worried friend even warned the dispatcher that the next time police/law enforcement officials are sent out to his house that he could be dead.
