Taylor Helgeson, manager for the late Aaron Carter talked about the physical decline of his former client in the days leading up to his death, claiming during an interview with Page Six, that he looked thin and 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 had been the manager of Carter for around eight months and said he had seen the singer that week at a music studio because Aaron was launching an album with him, but he didn’t thought that he was okay.
“He didn’t seem okay physically … [but] mentally, he was the most excited I’ve seen him in months. He was very intelligent and he was very conscious of what people wanted to see from him”, Helgeson recalled.
Aaron Carter’s manager rules out suicide
Aaron Carter’s manager, Taylor Helgeson says that his client was very excited about some upcoming projects he was going to take on, and being a guy with a lot of plans rules out, at least for him the thought of Carter having committed suicide.
“We had so much stuff going on and, you know, Aaron was a really prideful guy in his own right, too. That’s not his style.”
He also said that him and Carter had a disagreement about the singer not wanting to attend a rehab program facility for three months, which Helgeson assured his client was needed in order for him to get his kid back.
“[Carter] was saying, ‘I’m going to get my kid back and then I’m going to do this,’ and I was saying, ‘If you do this, I’m definitely going to get you your kid back,’ and that was the disagreement”, Hegelson added for Page Six.
