“I always had the hope that he would somehow, someday, want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help he desperately needed.” wrote Nick Carter, member of the Backstreet Boys, in a caption alongside photos of the brothers over the years..
“Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is, addiction and mental illness are the real villains here.”
“I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know,” he added. “I love you Chizz, now you have a chance to finally have some peace that you could never find here on Earth…. God, please take care of my little brother.”
Nick Carter’s statement on Sunday comes after a source close to the family told CNN on Saturday that Carter, who found stardom as a boy with songs like “I Want Candy” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq”, was found dead in his bathtub.

The singer has been transparent in the past about his struggles with mental health, but once denied having substance abuse problems in an interview with CNN.
