Singers Nick and Aaron Carter are suffering a loss. Their sister Leslie, an aspiring singer, has passed away at the age of 25, CNN confirms.
"Our family is grieving right now and it's a private matter," the Carter family says in a statement. "We are deeply saddened by the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time."
E! News reports that she passed away Tuesday in upstate New York. Like her brothers, Leslie also had an interest in music, and her song "Like Wow!" was featured on the 2001 "Shrek" soundtrack. She also appeared with her siblings on the 2006 E! reality show, "House of Carters."
According to People magazine, Leslie welcomed a daughter in April of 2011.
Update, 2:03 p.m.: If you were planning on seeing Nick Carter's concert stop in NYC tomorrow, the singer has announced that the show will go on as planned.
Carter says in a statement that he's thankful to those "who have shared their wishes and prayers during this tragic time," and that he plans to continue with his tour "as promised."
“Performing is cathartic to me," he said, "and I am dedicating the rest of my tour to my sister since she loved to watch me perform."
Pretty great post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to mention that I've really loved surfing around your weblog posts. After all I'll be subscribing to your rss feed and I am hoping you write once more soon!
The author should check New York State geography....Carter died in Chautauqua, NY, which is WESTERN NEW YORK; not UPSTATE New York.
Like wow :0
All of you need to shut up and smoke some herb. stay high :)
So much negativity. But I never heard of her until now.
hot girl. fat on arms? i don't see it, you must all be puny dwarfs. sorry for the loss.
Ugggg fat arms are fat! No wonder she died.... of being hideous.
aaron carter looks like a complete junkie! sorry about the sister though :(
this is soo messed up ppl need to start thinkin of their kids before they do stupid stuff like this that will kill them...And then what will happen to the kids after they're all grown up and start asking about what happened to their mom or dad then that's really gonna upset the child and it will go down from there
Dear CNN: THIS is a news story — you know, with facts and information and stuff. A tragic story, more deserving of the brief outline that was given here.
Another overdose no doubt.
Richard Fore you should kill yourself. The only reason u are on this all the time is because there is know one in ur life that will really talk to u. Why do u thi k ur daddy left u. I won't tell u to get a life because u are a waste of space, so just die!!!!
His daddy did not leave. He died from SHAME.
To Sadie Fore..I am sure that her daughter will remember her for the rest of her life as she groes up without a mother. When I read these comments, it makes me realize what a sick society we live in! What a shame!
I don't usually post on here and was shocked by the lack of compassion of the ones that do. This was a 26 year old woman with a child and it is sad! Remember that was goes around comes around so you could at least have some compassion or keep your stupid remarks to yourself!!!!
Sure, I'll "easliy" end you all... If I knew what the HE-LL "easliy" meant! DDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRPPPPP!
Richard- Or how about you can easliy end all of ours? Yeah, it isn't nice when someone says it to you, now is it?
Her brothers can easily end there suffering and join her. Who the he-ll cares about those too frooty brothers of her's anyway?
You people are pathetic and sicking... A 25 year old woman is dead! Her family has to face this and continue living without her. Show some respect. We don't know how she died so don't assume!
i agree this is gonna be hard becaise Nick is on tour and this is going to hurt him everyday when he dedicated the Backstreet Boys tour.
Oh no, her too?! I'm shocked to hear about the loss of Nick and Aaron's sister. I remember hearing her song "Like Wow" during the end credits of "Shrek". I send my condolences to the Carter family.
no matter what the cause, or who it is it is still a very sad thing when someone so young dies. Or for that matter when anyone we love or care about passes.
I met a troll once. I refused to pay the toll to cross his bridge. He told his mom on me. She just told him to wash his hands before dinner.
Excuse me, the Cornelius family.
My sympathies to both the Corneleous & Carter families. That being said, does this have to turn into a racial issue?
I can't believe you people. Someone just died, how do you think their family feels. What if they read this crap. Have some sympathy towards others. How would you like it if someone in your family died and people are posting immature crap like this. Go to hell.
So, to remember her by we have this picture of her boob hanging out. Stay classy CNN.
Agreed. Nobody in their right mind would think that was sly. Why don't you give it a break for a while. Your sh!t is getting really old. Yep, chronic troll syndrome makes perfect sense.
I think it was a shame. 25 is way to young to go.
Serious question here: Were you touched inappropriately by a blogger or something? No one puts this much energy into it. There's a point where as a troll where you transition from amusement into insane obsession. You've been in the obsession part for like a year now. I laughed when the shrinks started talking about Chronic Troll Syndrome, but I think you might actually have it. I'm actually curious as to why you're still at it. I'm sure you'll answer with retardedgibberish and vitriol but such is life. ♥hugs♥
Trolling has changed drastically as years have gone by. A lot of the trolls before were methodical and knew who to target when to target... and they didn't need to be on different aliases to generate the desired results. These days, it's obvious that a lot of people have been immune to a majority of the trolling on here, so they have to resort to other measures. Welcome to a change in the times. Trolls can never be stopped... the only way a troll is no longer a troll is when they grow up... so in the meantime DEAL WITH IT, PEOPLE.
Even as stupid as this troll "Richard Fore" is... he's still doing a good job of stirring everyone up. That's all he really needs to do. He makes as much sense as a mentally challenged person, but as long as it gets your attention that's all he needs to survive. It's his life... until something better comes along.
Hmm...Learn something new everyday. Stupid is as stupid does. Bless his lil heart. (So did they say what the average age for a "troll" is? 12?)
I take it that you didn't get enough attention as a child. Regardless of how she died, it's sad.
Whateva... by tomorrow, no one will remember this leech off of her brother's successes even existed.
I LOVE how the only picture they could find of her was from SIX years ago! Really relevant loss there! SUCH a prevelant public figure! So glad this pushed the Soul Train story off the main page with this news.
She was a sister, a daughter, a wife, a mother, a friend and to some, an inspiration. This is a tragedy, people. Smarten up, show some respect!
An inspiration? R U serious?! Do you also find wh0re's like Ke$sha "inspirational?" What the he-ll is wrong with teenie-boppers these days? So star-struck that you'll jump at the chance to idolize anyone?!
Richard Fore talking to himself again? What a shocker!
AAAAAIIIIIIIIGHT ! BIG N8 IS IN DA HOOOOUUUSE ! WAS UP MY PEEPS?
Dicky-bite me! You are such a looser, to put it your own terms. Grow up and try to be a real man! Picking on girls is so manly! Sucks to be you, huh?
I used to watch her years ago on so train. She was the one that was black.
Im really SpiderGirl !
Me too ! It is so awesome ! I g oogled that leslie girl and it says she was one of the original Jonas Brothers. Too Cool !
Ah-Ha! B!ctch just gave herself away! Sly Sadie = Loose A55 B!tch! Fuccin' KNEW it! Hiding behind another name, Looser?
If you're going to insult someone, especially on their grammer like you did in another comment, learn how to spell. It's LOSER not LOOSER!
We need to have a fundraiser to purchase a dictionary for dear Richard. Maybe he'll figure out how to spell properly?
I lied. I'll never stop posting on here. Marquee is my life. I live and breathe it. I make friends on here.
Moemons are knpwn cannibals. Doesnt suprise me one nit.
Naaaah. It really was the mormons. She was on vacation and stopped in Utah. They captured her and had a cookout. Made barbecue. Even used KC Masterpiece. MMMMMmmmm.
My heart goes out to the family. To my troll on the other hand. That was pretty crude, even for you. The day I agree with Dicky, is the day I quit posting on this blog. Deepest sympathies to the family.
Nope. I just saw on the news it was Mormons. The Mormons got her. Thats the worst way to go.
Me too. They were on vacation and sharks got her.
I heard she got ate by sharks. Them sharks are fierce and dangerous creatures.
Nice gramar, looser! She got 'ate' by sharks? Idiote!
Drugs? Sorry to assume but since the article doesn't give any indication of illnesses, we have to make up our own reasons. I'm guessing drug overdose.
Are we really supposed to feel bad about an obvious ska-nk with too much eye-makeup and excess arm flab? She was even obviously stoned in the picture! I agree with Richard for once, who cares?
I dont care who they are. I DONT CARE IF IT WAS A BUM ON THE STREET. she had a family that loved her. Now there is one more person who has to grow up without a mother. I dont care who it was. no child should have to grow up without a mother
Typical. Soul Train guy dies, so QUICK! find some dead white person to post a story about!
I love my toilets.
Aren't you supposed to be dead by you're own hand, twit?
I saved my poop and my dog's poop in a baggie, just for you. Also, I have a tupper ware bowl, filled with some diarrhea from this weekend.
All for you.
HAHAHAHA! Who the 'eff cares? She was the unknown sister of some has-beens! Wh0re probably overdosed on se-men. Looser!
it doesn't matter who she is, she was a 25 year old woman with a husband, daughter and family who loved her. Her daughter has to grow up without a mother now so have some respect. And it's LOSER not LOOSER. if you're gonna insult someone at least do it with the right spelling.
I guess you haven't seen this troll around. He is known for spelling loser wrong. It's almost like his trademark.
AGAIN, who the 'EFF cares?! The whole family should have been a bl0w job.
Where's your boyfriend LAB at? You guys take turns trolling? I'm assuming you guys made up and he's just busy cooking your meal since you're usually the one who cooks.
Richard is the Loser. Sad and pathetic you are
Poor Richard needs a trip to the doctor.
what is wrong with you Richard Fore ???????
The troll section applause...
loser, not looser. good job, now you look like an idiot.
Richard Fore....you excel at that which you are good at. May God have mercy on you for that.
You need to pardon Dick Fore. He is not in his best state of mind. He recently lost his job. Consequently, he also lost his boy friend. They were supposed to get married. He had been an Obama supporter, not he is turning towards supporting Newt Grinch. All that is a whole lot of depressing for him – and we have to pardon him and give him some leeway to express his frustrations.
I am totally osebessd with magazines as well. Just purchased a couple today; Self, Shape and a gossip one (InTouch, I beleive). I just picked up my Glamour, Cosmo, Harper's and all the other ones last week. The InStyle has stunning photo's in it! Enjoy!-Sandra.*
What happened? I hope it is not a overdose.
no its not sad...
