Carter, a singer and the younger brother of band member Nick Carter, was found dead at his California home on Saturday, Nov. 5. He was 34.
“We lost one of our family members yesterday,” band member Kevin Richardson said on-stage. “He was a part of our family and we thank you guys for all the love and all the well wishes and all the support.”
Others consoled Nick, who could be seen fighting back tears.
“Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded,” Nick said Sunday on social media. “I have always held on to the hope that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed.
“Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss, but the truth is that addiction and mental illness are the real villains here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you baby brother.”
Aaron, who rose to stardom as a preteen in the late 1990s and early 2000s, reportedly struggled with addiction and mental health problems.
Aaron’s house sitter reportedly found the artist unresponsive in a bathtub. His cause of death has not been revealed.
