Aaron also took to Twitter on Wednesday to grieve his father's death, tweeting, "My heart is Completely shattered I'm in shock and I loved my dad so much. This is the last pic I have my dad", he wrote.

"If you want me to be honest, I had my first drink when I was 2 years old", he told the magazine of his "hardcore drinking" troubles.

On May 17, 2017, Aaron confirmed the news of his father's passing on Twitter. Nick Carter, 37, also said that "while we learn more about the cause of death, and begin the grieving process, we ask that our privacy be respected at this hard time".

Aaron Carter shared a photo of himself with his father shortly after the news of his death broke.

Aaron thanked his fans for the support and also tweeted simply "Lost" before saying that he was "signing off".

"My heart is broken", he wrote on Instagram. The Backstreet Boy asked for "our privacy be respected at this hard time" as the family "learn [s] more about the cause of death, and begin the grieving process".

This is the latest tragedy to hit to Carter family.

Robert Carter appeared with his family on the 2006 E! reality series, "House of Carters".
