The cause of death of Bobbie Jean, Nick and Aaron Carter’s sister, has been confirmed.

Nick, 44, is an American singer who is best known for being a member of the Backstreet Boys – who had iconic songs such as ‘Everybody’ and ‘I Want It That Way’.

Aaron rose to fame in the late 90s as a teen pop sensation, with tracks such as ‘I Want Candy’ and ‘I’m All About You’.

Unlike her siblings, Bobbie Jean stayed out of the limelight – although she was involved with her brothers’ music careers.

Last year, it was sadly announced that the 41-year-old had died and now a cause of death has been confirmed.

The Carter family has been rocked by tragedy and troubles over the years.

Fans were left heartbroken in 2022 when it was announced that Aaron Carter had died aged 34.

It would eventually be disclosed that the singer had drowned in his bathtub after taking alprazolam and inhaling compressed difluoroethane.

In 2012, it was sadly confirmed that Leslie Carter had passed away at 25 as a result of an overdose, as per The Sun.

Bobbie Jean appeared alongside her siblings in eight episodes of her family’s E! reality TV series, House of Carters, which aired in 2006.

And TMZ reports that she worked as a wardrobe and makeup stylist on Aaron’s tours during the early 2000s.

But following her appearance in House of Carters, Bobbie Jean remained out of the public eye.

When Bobbie Jean’s passing was confirmed, her mother Jane Carter shared a statement with TMZ.

It read: “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.

“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 8-year-old granddaughter Bella, who previously lost her father and is now also left without her mother.”

“I know she is finally at peace with God. I love you BJ.”

A post shared by Nick Carter (@nickcarter)

In an initial case summary report released by the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner Department and obtained by People, Bobbie Jean’s cause of death has been confirmed as ‘intoxication by the combined effects of fentanyl and methamphetamine’.

The manner of her death has been listed as accidental.

The report alleges that Bobbie Jean’s roommate last saw her at 6:30am, and found her unresponsive on the bathroom floor half an hour later.

She was rushed to Tampa’s St Joseph’s Hospital under suspicion of cardiac arrest and was sadly pronounced dead at 8:02am.

Under the ‘medical history’ section of the report, officials said Carter had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, reportedly citing her mother Jane, who is listed as her next of kin.

The report also listed propranolol (an anti-anxiety medication), omeprazole (which treats indigestion, heartburn and acid reflux), clindamycin (an antibiotic) and quetiapine (used to treat mental health conditions like schizophrenia) as ‘preliminary meds’.

Bobbie Jean is survived by her daughter, Bella.
