Details on Aaron Carterhis final days have arrived in the aftermath of his death.
Nearly two weeks after the singer was found dead at his California home, his manager Taylor Helgeson recalled how “thin” and “extremely tired” he looked during their last encounters.

“He was very aware of what people wanted to see from him,” Taylor shared, adding, “We had so many things going on and, you know, Aaron was a very proud man in his own right as well.”

As Taylor explained, “Right now we’re grieving and not interested in any projects.”
Aaron’s management team previously brought publisher Ballast Books to its knees for announcing plans to release an unfinished memoir about the late star shortly after his passing. In a statement to E! News on November 10, his team called the book written by a journalist Andy Symonds after three years of interviewing Aaron, “obscenely disrespectful and illicit.”
Aaron’s team added at the time, “This is a time for mourning and reflection, not heartless money grabs and attention seeking.”
He has since faced backlash from Aaron’s management and his ex-girlfriend Hilary Duff— despite everything, Ballast Books has delayed its release “out of respect for the Carter family,” according to a statement shared on behalf of the publisher to The Hollywood Reporter.
“My client has decided to postpone further release of the book at this time,” Scott Atherton, a Ballast Books lawyer and the author of the memoir, told the outlet. “Mr. Carter was not only a celebrity, but also a father, a brother, a son and a friend to many who still mourn him.”
