Aaron Carter’s fans have been harassing his on-again, off-again fiancée, Melanie Martin, since his death.
Sources connected to Martin told TMZ Friday that she’s being harassed on social media by followers who not only blame her for loss of the “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It)” singer but also wish death upon her.
It appears the constant barrage of negativity has taken a toll on the model, as she deactivated her Instagram account.
The outlet also claimed fans have been showing up outside of Carter’s Lancaster, Calif., home, where he was found dead in his bathtub at age 34 on Nov. 5, and walking up to its doors and windows to look inside — instilling fear in Martin, 30, who has been staying there.
Martin called police Tuesday to “keep the peace” while she moved some belongings from the “I Want Candy” performer’s home.
While Carter’s cause of death has yet to be determined, his best friend Gary Madatyan claimed the pop star had been struggling with addiction issues in the months leading up to his death. Madatyan also said he discovered cans of compressed air throughout Carter’s home after the former child star’s death.
“I knew he was struggling, and I tried everything to help him,” she told People. “He has a very independent and strong personality, and I couldn’t help him in the way I felt he needed it.”
Carter struggled with addiction and mental health issues during the last few years of his life. He checked into an outpatient treatment center in September in hopes to regain custody of his and Martin’s son.
“I do group therapy, parenting classes, domestic violence classes. I got myself certified in CPR, just a lot of different things,” he said at the time, adding that all he wanted was his “son back.”
