“It’s still unbelievable to me,” Nick told E! News. “I’m still processing the whole situation and trying to make sense of it – because it hasn’t.” 

“It’s just that, no matter what, he’s my brother and I miss him. I love him. I hope one day it’ll all make sense, and I’m working on it,” he added, breaking down in tears. 

Nick also lost his father, Robert Carter in 2017 and another sister, Leslie, in 2012. Angel, Aaron’s twin, is the only other surviving sibling of Nick’s.

“We are taking it one day at a time and coping with it the best way we can,” he said of his family in 2017 following his father’s death. “Nobody can ever prepare for anything like that, regardless of my issues with my family. He’s still my father. So obviously, I’ve been conflicted, sad, mourning, angry, and all the different things that you go through in that process of grief. But again, we’re dealing with it the best way we can.”
