Pop star Aaron Carter dies at the age of 34.

Pop star Aaron Carter has died at the age of 34, it has been confirmed.

The singer - younger brother of Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter - was discovered unresponsive in his bathtub at his home in California on Saturday morning.

Carter had suffered from alcohol and drugs addiction in recent years and had also spoken candidly about his battles with mental health.

A spokesperson for the star said: "It is with great regret to confirm Aaron Carter was found unresponsive this AM in his home in Palmdale, CA.

"The family has been notified and will be flying out to Los Angeles. Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family.

"Unfortunately without proper recovery facilities available in our country and open borders, this is why we have an epidemic."

Carter is survived by his 11-month-old son Prince.
