Aaron Carter's twin sister DROPS her bid to take control of his estate
EXCLUSIVE: Aaron Carter’s twin sister Angel DROPS her bid to take control of his $550,000 estate and instead cuts a deal with the late popstar’s fiancée to hire a neutral third party administrator
- Former child popstar Aaron Carter, 34, died without a will in November 2022
- His twin sister Angel was seeking to take control of his estate, estimated to be worth $550,000 in real estate and personal property
- On Wednesday, Angel withdrew her bid after reaching a deal with Aaron’s fiancée and mother of his 14 month-old son, Melanie Martin
Aaron Carter’s twin sister Angel has dropped her bid to take control of her brother’s estate, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Instead she’s cut a deal with Aaron’s fiancée, Melanie Martin – mother of his 14 month-old son Prince – to hire a neutral third party to be administrator of the estate, estimated to be worth around $550,000 in real estate and personal property
On Wednesday at probate court in downtown Los Angeles, Judge Michael Small granted Angel’s request to withdraw her motion to be administrator.
And he signed off on the new deal, appointing financial consultant Aileen Federizo as administrator, giving her ‘full authority’ over the estate.
Neither Angel nor Martin appeared in court Wednesday and the judge scheduled another hearing on June 25.

Federizo will pay off any outstanding bills and creditors, evaluate Carter’s assets and likely set up a trust to ensure Prince is looked after until he’s at least 18 when he’ll inherit the remainder of what his father left.
Since Carter died without a will, under California law his estate goes to his next of kin, which is Prince because his parents were not married.
The Crush on You singer died at his home in Lancaster, California, on November 5 last year at the age of 34.
He appeared to have ‘drowned’ in a bathtub, though the official cause of death won’t be known until toxicology tests are completed.
The singer mother, Jane Carter – whose daughter Leslie died from a drug overdose at age 25 in 2012 – is convinced that Aaron suffered the same fate after the coroner told them that no water was found in his lungs, meaning he didn’t drown.
And Martin, who was living apart from Carter at the time of his death, has urged police to investigate an alleged drug deal he made on the night that he died that could have led him to overdose.
She has turned over to cops several text messages on Carter’s phone from a man demanding $800 for an unknown substance, she revealed in an interview.
Aaron – who did rehab stints in 2011 and 2017 – reportedly replied to the man, claiming he no longer needed the substance, to which the man responded it didn’t matter as he still owed the money.
Carter then asked if he was being threatened, which is where the messages end.
Aaron and Melanie began dating in 2020 and got engaged in June that year, before having their son, Prince, in November 2021

Aaron’s family, including his Backstreet Boys older brother Nick Carter, plan to travel to the Florida Keys in the spring to spread his and Leslie’s ashes.
Aaron, who rose to fame as a child star, battled mental health conditions including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and manic depression, as well as substance abuse.
Last week, Nick Carter’s benefit concert in memory of his estranged brother raised $150k for a children’s mental health charity.
Songs For Tomorrow – which Nick, 42, and N*Sync’s Lance Bass, 43, headlined at West Hollywood’s Heart – raised money for On Our Sleeves: The Movement for Children’s Mental Health.
Nick was also joined by Backstreet Boy bandmate AJ McLean, 98 Degrees’ Jeff Timmons, O-Town and LFO for the concert reports TMZ – which saw him break down in tears onstage as he paid tribute to Aaron.
