On what would have been Aaron's 35th birthday, her twin sister Angel Carter shares her 'extreme grief' over the 'unimaginable loss' of her sibling 'because of untreated mental illness and the addiction that it led to.'

AceShowbiz - December 7 is an "incredibly tough day" for Aaron Carter's twin sister Angel Carter. On what would have been his 35th birthday, Angel opened up on her "extreme grief" over the "unimaginable loss" of her sibling "because of untreated mental illness and the addiction that it led to."

Taking to her Instagram page, Angel posted a throwback photo of her and Aaron as kids. "I want to start by sharing how much I appreciate all the birthday wishes," she started her heartbreaking note. "While today is incredibly tough, I am overwhelmed by your love and support… thank you from the bottom of my heart."

After dealing with the death of her sister Leslie 11 years ago, Angel lamented how she's "forced to once again deal with the extreme grief of the death of a sibling" again following Aaron's tragic passing. "It feels unfair… I feel too young to carry the weight of losing two of my siblings," she cried her heart out.

Angel noted that she had tried everything to help Aaron. "When we lost Leslie, I was blindsided and shocked. With Aaron, however, we had tried everything," she claimed. "In fact, I spoke with him two days before he passed, and I begged, once again, for him to let us help. I did not know that would be the last time that I would ever hear his voice. And now, I sit here on our birthday, trying to navigate this unimaginable loss because of untreated mental illness and the addiction that it led to."

"Aaron dying was the worst day of my life," the 35-year-old went on mourning. "I have loved him since we were born… it feels like a piece of my soul is gone. And yet, despite all this pain, his passing has lit a fire within me. I feel a calling and responsibility to help other families and continue the conversation to further break the stigmas that surround mental illness."

Angel then made use of the opportunity to announce a benefit concert in memory of her late brother. "And so, with the support of family and friends, we are planning a benefit concert to raise awareness for mental health, with 100% of proceeds being donated to @onoursleevesofficial," she penned. "To learn more, please click the link in my bio to see how you can support the critical work of On Our Sleeves by attending 'Songs For Tomorrow' on January 18, 2023, in West Hollywood, CA."

"I have learned the pain never goes away and keep telling myself that it is one step at a time. I am hoping you can join me for this crucial next step… in memory of Aaron," she concluded her lengthy message.

The event, "Songs for Tomorrow", will take place on January 18 at Heart WeHo in West Hollywood, California. To be co-hosted by Angel and NSYNC's Lance Bass, the event will feature a special performance by Angel and Nick Carter.
