Sharing a screenshot of an article in which Helgeson spoke about Carter, Martin wrote: ‘I haven’t spoke out but I feel the need to now. This man did nothing to help Aaron. He enabled him so much.
‘All he did was put a wedge between Aaron and I for the party to start. I was even thrown off the tour bus by this man!!
‘He tried to take over and brought him things that should have NEVER been brought to anyone. Let alone an addict.
‘I struggled with trying to keep a romantic and family relationship and a business relationship because I tried to keep enablers away

‘He overworked him when he was not well. He used him in life and now he’s still getting paid for interviews!
‘This man wanted to get Aaron’s career back but this wasn’t the time to do so. Aaron needed help and needed rehab to be sober before he could revive his career.
‘I am sick of people coming out of the woodwork now with false narratives to look like the hero.’
‘This man was no hero. He had a hand in his relapse. I tried to give this man the benefit of the doubt many times and he continuously disappointed me. Constantly using Aaron for clout and his belongings. You enabled him and tried to overwork him into something he was not.
‘I know I can’t bring back Aaron but I will always make sure the truth is spoken! I’ll protect Aaron for the rest of my life.
In his own statement, Helgeson fired back at Martin’s ‘false’ statements but confirmed that he had previously removed her from Carter’s tour bus after she displayed ‘extremely erratic behavior’ that became a safety issue.
‘Out of respect for the family, Aaron’s loved ones, and even Melanie we have not commented on her at any time,’ Helgeson began.
‘However, due to her recent actions, the most astounding of which are against the family of Aaron himself, we strongly feel the need to comment and condone both her actions and false statements.
‘Melanie was not and had not been with Aaron for some time prior to his passing, due to causing a domestically unsafe environment for both her and himself.
Claims: Martin, 35, who is the mother of Carter’s only son Prince, one, took to Instagram on Friday to claim Helgeson ‘had a hand in Aaron’s relapse’ and pushed him to go back on tour as he battled addiction
‘In regards to the tour incident it is true. Melanie was safely removed after displaying extremely erratic behavior including attempting to eject herself from the tour bus whilst it was moving down the freeway at an incredibly high rate of speed.
‘For her safety and the safety of the rest of the tour party I made the decision to remove her from the tour. I booked her a hotel, purchased her a plane ticket home and ensured she made it safely back where her family could look after her,’ he concluded.
This comes as Helgeson, who worked with Carter for eight months, told Page Six how cyber-bullying ‘really affected’ the star.
He said: ‘It was like a nightmare. It was nonstop. It was so relentless and, yeah, it did a number on him.
Discussing the star being heckled during a live show, he said: ‘It really affected him, and he didn’t let it show in the performance, but when he got off the stage, he was like, really sad. He wasn’t angry, he was sad.’
Helgeson said Carter was further upset by viewing social media reaction but could not stop himself from looking.
He added that Carter and his estranged brother Nick also had plans to meet to work on their relationship.
He said: ‘I know that they had plans … to get to get together, to forgive. I don’t know exactly when, but I know that they wanted to — that was the that was the idea.’
Helgeson previously told the publication Carter looked ‘thin, tired and physically frail’ in the final days before his tragic death.
Helgeson said he was concerned for his health when they met at a music studio two days before his death.
He said: ‘He looked thin. He was extremely tired. He just looked like he needed to be doing anything but working. He looked like he needed to be taking care of him.

Helgeson, who had been working with Carter for eight months, added: ‘He didn’t seem okay physically … [but] Mentally, he was the most excited I’d seen him in months. He was very smart and very aware of what people wanted to see from him.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office is awaiting toxicology results before revealing the cause of Carter’s death — but Helgeson doesn’t believe the star committed suicide, saying he was “proud and had a lot going on.”
The star’s manager says the couple had been discussing him going to an inpatient rehab program, which was met with resistance from Carter.
Parenthood: He added that they considered spending three months in Utah “detoxing and forging new physical habits” – with Carter saying he wanted to focus on regaining custody of his 1-year-old son, Prince, before entering rehab
He added that they considered spending three months in Utah “detoxing and forging new physical habits” – with Carter saying he wanted to focus on regaining custody of his 1-year-old son, Prince, before entering sanitarium.
The prince, whom he shares with his unofficial fiancée Melanie Martin, is in the care of Melanie’s mother.
In mid-2022, Helgeson said, Carter said he had not slept “two days” and felt “nervous,” but after sleeping, he asked his manager to help him draft a will — which was never completed.
Helgeson said the priority for him and the rest of his team is to ensure Prince is spared — which is why posthumous projects like the star’s controversial memoir have been criticized.
It was recently revealed that Carter’s body was cremated. According to TMZ, which obtained the singer’s death certificate, Carter’s ashes will be kept by his twin sister, Angel. The document says his mother, Jane, was the first to report her son’s tragic death to the authorities.
The death certificate did not specify the cause of Carter’s death.
After her sister’s tragic death, Angel paid her brother a heartbreak on Instagram.
“To my twins… I loved you beyond measure. We will miss you. Funny and sweet Aaron, I have so many memories of you and I, I promise to cherish,” she wrote.
The angel continued, “I know you are at peace now. I will carry you with me until the day I die and see you again.
Carter’s brother, former Backstreet Boys member Nick, also wrote about his brother on social media.
: ‘So grateful to Flood.'[ing] Of love and support for my brother. In his memory, he started a fund for @onoursleevesofficial, an important children’s mental health charity that helps families across America,” Nick said.
The singer posted a link to the On Our Sleeves website where fans can donate.

Nick also said, “Thank you for choosing to celebrate the impact of Aaron Carter’s life with a gift of hope. By honoring Aaron, you are helping Nick, Angel, and their family in their commitment to helping others.
Carter was discovered by his housekeeper, known only as Betty, who had been living in the house for three weeks. The woman was homeless, and Carter and his on-again/off-again girlfriend Melanie Martin were asked to take care of the house after breaking into a friend’s mansion.
Carter said in an August interview that he’d been through rehab four times and “finally got it right.” But he returned to the outpatient program the following month to treat his “triggers”.
At the time of his death, Carter was living with the prince’s mother, Melanie Martin.
Neighbors described the relationship as stormy, saying they often heard the couple yell at each other, and the police were called at least three times.
A neighbor told DailyMail.com that Carter would often lock Martin out of the house, leaving her to bang on the door, shouting “Let me in.”
The neighbor said that another resident knocked on Carter’s door one day and Melanie answered.

I was asked if they could turn down the music. Melanie said she would pass the information on to Aaron. Minutes later, Aaron knocked on the neighbor’s door and started yelling at the neighbor, calling her “c**t and ab***ch”.
Someone else in the house told Aaron to leave their belongings. The police were called and Arun tried to tell the police that the neighbor had assaulted him. No arrests have been made.
“Every neighbor has that ‘neighbour’ that you have to deal with, it was that ‘neighbor.’” said the man.
Melanie shows up at the house after the news of Carter’s death is announced. She was seen crying and being comforted by Carter’s real estate agent Christie Limpus-Hathaway.
And she issued a statement saying: My fiancé, Aaron Carter, has passed away. I love Aaron with all my heart and it will be the journey of raising a fatherless son. Please respect my family’s privacy as we come to terms with the loss of someone we loved dearly. We are still in the process of accepting this unfortunate reality. We greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
Earlier this year, the Carters filed for custody of their son and a petition for protection against Martin in Los Angeles County Antelope Valley Court.
In a lawsuit, he accused his ex-wife of “emotional distress, anguish, shoving, and scratching,” and alleged that she used the threat of suicide to “emotionally” abuse him.
Melanie, 35, was seen moving her belongings out of the Carter home last week.
The former child star was trying to sell the house, but it was taken off the market after his death.
Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter paid tribute to his younger brother Aaron after news that Aaron was found dead in the bathtub of his California home the day before at the age of 34.
Carter died without leaving a will meaning the will state decides who will inherit his assets, it is revealed.
It has since emerged that Carter texted Maxim model Sonia Cruz, 24, telling her to go to his house — until he told her he’d pay for an Uber and drive her home himself. Those messages came hours before his death.
Cruz, who has been featured in international magazines including Harper’s Bazaar and Maxim, replied that she will speak tomorrow after she wakes up. I signed the message “xox” with a heart emoji.
“I’m sorry I didn’t spend more time when he asked,” Cruz told DailyMail.com.
She added, “I had no idea something like this was going to happen and I think it will always be in my life.”
He was a complete angel and so sweet. May he rest in peace.’
In California, a child usually inherits the estate of a single parent if they die intestate.
But the sources said Carter was not in a strong financial position when he was found dead at his home on November 5.
The star put his Lancaster home up for sale for about $800,000 in the weeks leading up to his death, but it has now been taken off the market.
If the sale goes ahead, Prince will likely have security in any equity he brings in.
