In late September, fans called authorities after they believed Carter was actively doing drugs off-camera during an Instagram Live. Numerous fans who watched the livestream called 911, believing the singer might overdose after the screen went black and viewers heard spraying and inhaling noises.
When police arrived to Carter's home, they were at first unable to contact the singer via phone or knocking. Once they were able to enter his home, authorities did not find drugs. Carter claimed the reason he didn’t answer the door initially was because he was sleeping. As for the noises heard during the livestream, he alleged that it was just air freshener.
Carter was best known for his 2000 hit cover of "I Want Candy," as well as his first two albums: 1997's self-titled debut, which Carter released when he was just 9, and 2000's Aaron's Party, which sold 3 million copies and featured songs such as "Aaron's Party (Come Get It)" and "That's How I Beat Shaq."
During his rise to fame in the early 2000s, Carter opened concerts for Britney Spears, the Backstreet Boys and more. His songs were frequently played on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, MTV and other music and teen-oriented channels at the time.
Carter famously made a guest appearance on Disney Channel's Lizzie McGuire in 2001.
