AARON Carter’s fiancee shared her final messages with the late star as she tried to scare him into sobering up by sending him updates on Mac Miller’s drug overdose and the physical aftermath of snorting.
Melanie Martin broke her silence to The US Sun in her first sit-down interview since the pop star was found dead in the bathtub at her Lancaster, California home on November 5.
His official cause of death has yet to be released pending toxicology results, but police say they found prescription pills and cans of compressed air at his home.
Melanie, 35, claims the former child star was clean for most of their three-year on-off relationship until “bad people from his past” started hanging out with him again.
The beauty influencer briefly suspected he was being secretly sold drugs, but said he ever admitted to relapsing into his “puffing” addiction just weeks before his death.
Aaron had previously been open about his struggles, claiming he had 100 bouts of snorting a few years ago, but told The US Sun in September he had never used street drugs.
Office or kitchen items can be “puffed” or “sniffed,” while “dusting” refers to a specific brand of dust cleaner that is inhaled.
Melanie and Aaron, 34, split again just days before his death and he threw her out of the house.
She was staying with her family and seeing her son, one-year-old Prince, but was concerned after she was sent live stream clips from Instagram of Aaron who was under the influence.
Melanie has called the police several times but says they only visited him occasionally for welfare checks and didn’t think he was sick enough for a 5150 psychiatric ward.
Text messages seen by The US Sun show the former couple fighting back and forth around Halloween and days before his death as she asked him to get help for his addiction.
Melanie revealed, “I said, ‘Aaron, we love you.’ I said, ‘Please stop ignoring me. We’ve walked this path, we’ve gotten each other through it all.’
“He says, ‘I never said I was relapsing.’ I said, ‘I have a video, baby. You have it. Please, please, please let me help you.'”
Aaron finally responded to the torrent of messages and tragically told Melanie, “I want you gone forever. You’ll never hear from me again,” as he slapped her for calling the police.
She continued, “I sent him Mac Miller. I was going insane thinking this is not normal, I know something bad is going to happen. I felt it. I guess I’ve never seen him like this before.
“I sent him ‘Mac Miller Overdose and Drug Use History.’ I sent that to him.
“I said, ‘That’s what happens when people do what you do. I said, ‘It can happen to anyone.’ I said, ‘I’ve done my research.’ He wouldn’t answer me.”
Rapper Mac Miller, who has been vocal about his battle with substance abuse issues, died on September 7, 2018 from an accidental overdose of cocaine, fentanyl and alcohol at his home. He was just 26 years old at the time.
Melanie said she told Aaron, “If you want to live another day, just call me back and I’ll help you right away. I’m going to take you to the hospital.” Adding, “I went crazy out, I should have just gone to the house.'”
She also submitted a Wikipedia article with a chilling photo of a drug addict showing the damage that can be done to someone’s face by huffing aerosol cans.
Despite more desperate messages, Aaron never responded, and Melanie said she decided to leave him alone but planned to drive from Orange County to the house the next day.
“I thought you needed a few days to cool off while the whole me is calling and being this nagging girlfriend; so I didn’t want to be the one to intervene.
“I was the girlfriend, you know, so he’ll be mad at me if I’m the one. I tried to get help and I reached out to TV personalities and they said they weren’t doing any shows right now.
“I don’t even remember their names, they were on social media but I reached out to them.
“I tried. It was just hard. I didn’t know how to plan all of this. But I knew it was bad, people blame me and say, ‘You didn’t get him help.’
“I want people to know that because people say I didn’t do anything.
“I wasn’t feeling well that week either. I thought I had Covid but I also only had a minor cold. I wanted to go to bed early but packed to go to the house in the morning.
“It wasn’t like a huge bag, it was just my stuff. And I said, okay, you know, I’m going to see Prince [and] I’m going back to him, you know, it’s time to come home.”
