A representative of his older brother, Nick Carter, also confirmed his death.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a call about a death at a home in Lancaster, California, just before 11 a.m. Saturday. One person was found to have died at the scene. A spokesman for the sheriff later told UKTN News that Carter’s nanny discovered his body in the bathtub and called authorities.

The sheriff said authorities are investigating.

In addition to releasing five albums, Carter appeared on Nickelodeon and toured with the boy band The Backstreet Boys for some time. His older brother was a member of that group.

He made his acting debut during a guest appearance on Disney Channel’s “Lizzie McGuire”. Carter played JoJo in “Who in Seussical the Musical” on Broadway from 2001. Five years later, he and his siblings also had an E! series “House of Carters.”

Carter’s fiancée, Melanie Martin, asked for privacy, The UK Time News reports.

“We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality,” Martin said in a statement on Saturday. “Your thoughts and prayers are much appreciated.”
