The actor and singer-turned-rapper was discovered dead on Saturday at his Lancaster, California, home. According to numerous stories, Aaron’s body was discovered in his bathtub. Police sources tell TMZ that at 11 AM on Saturday, they received a 911 call reporting that a man had drowned in the bathtub.
Police sources tell TMZ that homicide investigators have been sent to the area, although there is no information or proof of any wrongdoing. Such death scenes are routine targets for homicide detectives’ investigations.
With the release of four studio albums, including his self-titled debut album in 1997 when he was just 9 years old, Aaron rose to stardom as a pop singer in the late 1990s. After selling a million copies of his debut album, Aaron tripled that amount with his second album, “Aaron’s Party,” and from that point on, he started appearing regularly on Nickelodeon.
Because his elder brother Nick was a member of the wildly successful boy band, Aaron used to tour with the Backstreet Boys back when they were at their peak. As his musical career developed, he switched from singing to rapping. He also made an appearance on “Dancing With The Stars” and performed in the Broadway play “Seussical.” He will surely be missed and may he rest in peace.
