Aaron Carter reportedly did not want his memoir published

The late pop star, who was discovered dead on Saturday (05.11.22) at the age of 34, was writing a book about his life at the time of his passing, but he reportedly opposed its publication. This comes just days after Ballast Books announced they will release “Aaron Carter: An Incomplete Story of an Incomplete Life” on Tuesday.

a source stated to the PageSix column of The New York Times: “Aaron stopped working on the book in the middle and declared, “I want nothing to do with this,” thus despite what the publisher is claiming, it has not been approved! Aaron wouldn’t want it to happen!”

The “I Want Candy” singer, who is survived by fiancee Melanie Martin and their 11-month-old son Prince, dated “Lizzie McGuire” actress Hilary Duff when they were both teen idols in the early 2000s. It was “disgusting,”

according to Hilary Duff, to distribute the book so soon after his demise.

It’s truly terrible that a publisher seems to be hastily releasing a book to capitalise on this tragedy just a week after Aaron’s passing, she added, without taking the proper time or care to fact-check the author’s claims.

It is repulsive to reduce Aaron’s life narrative to what appears to be unconfirmed click-bait for financial gain. I in no way support bringing attention to what is so blatantly a callous, ignorant money grab.

Big Umbrella Management, Aaron’s management group, praised the former Disney Channel star for speaking out while decrying the publication.

We, as Aaron’s management, would want to thank Hilary Duff for her opinion on the upcoming book, according to the statement.

” The few days that have passed since the passing of our dear friends, we have been attempting to grieve and process while also dealing with a number of releases that are obscenely disrespectful and unapproved.

A book looks to be one of these new items, along with an album and a single.

“This is a time for sorrow and honouring a good person who has passed away; it is not the time for unscrupulous money grabs and media seeking.

We request that the persons in charge delete the aforementioned information and that no more content be published without his family, friends, and colleagues’ consent.

Ballast Books has not yet responded to the assertion.

Author Andy Symonds previously maintained that he “owed it” to Aaron to publish the book after spending three years interviewing the former child star for his book.

“Aaron was a sweet, sensitive, creative guy not without his issues, and I believe I owe it to him to reveal the bits we did accomplish,” he stated.

It’s a cruel irony that Aaron’s autobiography will never contain all of his memories, ideas, goals, and dreams as he wanted since he was an open book during the writing process.
