Yesterday, the music and entertainment world was rocked following reports that Aaron Carter had died at the age of 34.

As reported by PEOPLE and TMZ, the singer and actor was found dead on Saturday morning at his home in Lancaster, California.

TMZ later reported that law enforcement officials revealed that Carter's body was found "in the bathtub" by the singer's housesitter, who later alerted the authorities.

Carter - who shared a one-year-old son with his on-and-off again fiancée Melanie Martin - was the younger brother of Backstreet Boys bandmember Nick Carter, and would later shoot to fame in the 1990s after launching his own music career.

Currently being hailed as "the original Justin Bieber" by social media users, Carter released his first self-titled album in 1997, and went on to release four more studio albums over the next 20 years.

In total, he sold over 10 million records worldwide, and would star on shows such as Lizzie McGuire,  Sabrina, The Teenage Witch, Dancing With The Stars, and 7th Heaven.

However, in more recent years, Carter sadly hit headlines for his battles with addiction, legal troubles, and for his seemingly tumultuous relationship with fiancée Martin.

In fact, back in September, Carter spoke to the US Sun about reports that he had returned to rehab for a fifth time in order to regain custody of his son.

"There’s been no relapses. I haven’t had any relapses," Carter told the publication, explaining that he had enrolled in an outpatient aftercare program. "It’s just triggers are big right now for me. You know, so, I just, I want my son back."

"I don't want to smoke weed anymore. I don't really need to," Carter added.

And it would appear that Carter was indeed looking to turn a corner, as a Twitter post shared last week revealed that he was looking to sell his home.

Writing on the social media platform on October 29, Carter tweeted: "Selling my 2nd home. Real estate has been super good to me."

The singer then revealed that he was "ready for a new chapter" in his third home, in which, he planned on "staying to make a beautiful life for my family."

"This year has been super tough but I’ve learned so much. Thanks for the support everyone," Carter wrote.

In the post, Carter included a link to the Zillow page advertising the 7-bedroom Lancaster property, with a listed price of $799,900. The home also boasted a large swimming pool, walk-in wardrobe, and four bathrooms.

Our thoughts continue to go out to Carter's family, friends, and fans at this time.
