Share

A cause of death for Bobbie Jean Carter, the sister of Nick and late singer Aaron Carter, has been revealed. According to the report released by the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Department in Florida and obtained by ET, Bobbie Jean, 41, died on Dec. 23, 2023, of “intoxication due to the combined effects of fentanyl and methamphetamine.”

The medical examiner ruled the death accidental.

Per the report, Bobbie Jean’s roommate found her unresponsive on the bathroom floor at 7 a.m. She was rushed to Tampa’s St. Joseph’s Hospital in cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead at 8:02 a.m.

Officials noted that Bobbie Jean had been diagnosed with schizophrenia in the “medical history” section of the report, citing her mother, Jane, who is listed as her next of kin. She left behind an 8-year-old daughter, Bella.

Bobbie Jean’s tragic death came just over a year after Aaron was found dead at his Lancaster, California home. He was 34. ET later confirmed that the singer’s primary cause of death was listed as drowning by the Los Angeles Medical Examiner. Aaron’s death was the result of the effects of taking alprazolam, which is a generic form of Xanax, and inhaling difluoroethane. 

Bobbie Jean’s death also came 11 years after her sister, Leslie, died in 2012, at age 25.

Bobbie Jean was a fixture on the reality TV series House of Carters. She also worked closely with Aaron, serving as his wardrobe stylist when he was on tour. Bobbie Jean reportedly suffered from substance abuse over the years, and she was arrested as recently as June. According to People, Bobbie Jean was arrested in Florida after she allegedly stole stickers and markers from a Hobby Lobby. The outlet also reported, citing a police report, that officers found a container in her purse that later tested positive for fentanyl.

At the time news broke of her death, Jane spoke out to TMZ and shared she’s distraught at the sudden death of her daughter.

“I am in shock from learning of the sudden death of my daughter, Bobbie Jean; and I will need time to process the terrible reality of this happening for the third time,” she told the outlet. “When I am able to think clearly, I’ll release a fuller statement, but until then, I would request to be left to grieve in private.”

Jane added, “However deeply a parent feels the loss of a child, the suffering of a young child at the loss of a parent must be much greater. So, I would ask the sympathetic to say a prayer for my precious eight year old granddaughter Bella, who previously lost her father and is now also left without her mother.”

In early January, Nick broke his silence on his sister’s death, writing that he was “completely heartbroken” as he shared a photo of the two together as children.

“It may take a lifetime to fully process the loss my family has endured over the years — most recently, with the sudden passing of our sister Bobbie Jean,” the Backstreet Boys singer wrote. “I am completely heartbroken. Thank you for all your love and kind words. We are reminded again that life is precious, fleeting and to cherish the time we have with the ones we love. I know she is finally at peace with God. I love you BJ.”

A source close to the Carter family previously told ET that Bobbie Jean’s family is “sharing responsibility” for Bella.

“Bobbie Jean Carter’s daughter, Bella, is in the care of her late father’s sister and staying with her after passing of her mother,” the source said, with a second source adding, “The family is sharing responsibility helping with Bella and she is currently with her aunt.”
