No One Told Nick Carter About His Own Sister's Funeral

| Filed under: Sad SadNick Carter

Whoa. This is just cruel.

Over the weekend, Nick and Aaron Carter's sister Leslie was laid to rest in a small ceremony in Upstate New York. She passed away last week, presumably of an overdose, and it's been a very difficult time for the whole Carter family. One would think that the death of someone everyone held so dear would bring thus dysfunctional family closer together, but it seems that it has only driven a further wedge.

See, we heard that Nick did not attend the funeral while so many other family members, including Aaron, were present and we thought that was odd. Now, we've learned from Nick that the reason he did not say his final good-bye to his little sister was because he wasn't told the time and place. Nick explains:

“I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic. There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive, and focused.”

How hard. To be alienated from your family in a time like this, of so much pain and sorrow. And what's more, to be deliberately left out of a chance to make amends and pay final respects. That's just inconceivable to us.

If this can't bring his family together, we don't know what will. At least he got the chance to paid tribute to her in his own way.

    This is so sad. It sounds like the family has some serious problems which could help explain the drug problems of the children. My heart goes out to them and especially Nick.

    Of course his sister said none of this is true so who knows what is the truth. Only know this is one messed up family which makes them all pretty sad.

    WELL THATS JUST PITIFUL AND RIDICULOUS!!! NO COMMUNICATION SKILLS IN FAMILY I GUESS!



  4. 4

    they obviously didin't want him there. and probably for good reason.

    that is so messed up! WTF is wrong with this family?? jesus…

    I never really watched his show. So, was it a case of this one thought the other one told him or did they just not want him there? When I saw this pic a few weeks ago, then heard of his sister's death, I thought she was sick and he had that on his mind. I know it's not true now, so maybe he is on something like alot of you said. Who knows. He doesn't look healthy though.

    That's sad. When someone dies you expect people to want to come together but in my experience that doesn't happen. I'd always known my Grandaddy's girlfriend to be a selfish jerk but never to me personally. When my grandfather died she wouldn't return any of our calls and buried him without a proper funeral. Oddly enough that situation strengthened my belief in God and that it was him to judge her not me.

    Shouldn't he have asked? He was too busy touring and that message communicated itself to his family. There is no excuse for them to exclude him, but he needs to take some responsibility too.

    All my love and Support to Nick.

    Maybe they did and he just didn't remember

    Ok so that weird quote doesn't mention anything about not being told, jus that there are so many "family dynamics". But I agree what others have said. Don't you think you'd be calling to ask when the funeral was being held? I'm sure somebody would have said something. But the entire thing is pathetic. His sister dies of an OD due to mental issues and (if the tabloids have it right) jealousy. She supposedly never got over not making it big. He continues the fame whore cycle by continuing to go on tour?! WTF? It just seems like another way to try and promote himself and be in the spotlight. It's disgusting. Every last one of them puts more impotence on fame and money than family, love, and life. She had a DAUGHTER! In the statement made by the family to the press they say she was a wonderful "daughter, sister, granddaughter" or something like that but no mention of her role as a mother. And now one more poor child loses their mother to drugs. Apparently the grandmother in the house when she died was completely loaded as well according to the police report. I don't feel sorry for any sing one of them. When your priorities, goals, and dreams are on attachment to money and ego you're bound to live a sad unfulfilled life.

    It was up to him to find out the details and turn up. If they kept it from him upon his asking several sources, then that's a different thing altogether and wouldn't be cool at all.

    "Uhhhhh no one told me when it was". What a dick- if someone close to me died I would find out MY DAMN SELF when the fucking funeral is. It's not like Nick needs advance notice to clear his hectic schedule- this isn't 1999. This is clearly an awful spin by his publicist. Let me guess- Nick was actually attending some Z-list event, while working the sympathy PR circuit right?



  14. 14

    I think they are all kina white trash!



  15. 15

    I don't think no one told him, but the family obviously has a problem with Nick (Aaron's recent tweet about his family not including Nick *WTF*) so they probably would have caused hell had Nick showed up. A bitch move from the family & I don't blame Nick. It was probably in Leslie's best interest and memory that he didn't go.



  16. 16

    This is hardly surprising. The Carter family has never accepted Nick or his lifestyle. Frankly, Nick is worth more than the rest of them all rolled up.



  17. 17

    sad and totally effed up



  18. 18

    Best wishes to the family

    Nick's family is the definition of dysfunctional. Always blaming/using him for his money. He can pay his respects at a later date. Nick, stay healthy and positive.

    it is common knowledge that there has been a wedge in the family for a long time. Maybe no one told him and maybe, like someone else said, with any riffs going on felt it was best to pay tribute to her in his own way. It is so easy for others to judge a person but we have no idea what he is going through and what the family is like. Leslie seemed like the one sibling he was close with….always went to all of his and the bsb shows in Toronto and supported him. Clearly, from the pics recently, he is putting on a brave face. How he and the famiily deals with it is their own business.

    Thoughts are with you Nick!

    Re: SarahK – Well said!



  22. 22

    This is very sad, family should always be together, especially in times like this! I feel for Nick, I hope he will be ok.



  23. 23

    Im sure all Nick had to do was pick up the phone and say "hey, where's the furnal?" But he proly didn't….I'm sure Nick is not the innocent one in this issue. he sounds like an excuse maker…..cuz rest assure, if i WANTED to go to my sister's funeral, i would find a way. Pffft loser



  24. 24

    This just doesn't seem right. If he was in NY he should have known the time, it doesn't make sence to me, maybe just a rumor.



  25. 25

    i think you will find that they did not contact Nick because of his estranged relationship with the rest of his siblings over Lauren Kitt. I beleive that they think she got close to him by default…jumping from his good friend Tommy to get to Nick…..they really dont need any more stress …..so this matter is best left to lie….RIP Leslie…..xx
