Trigger warning: This article contains mentions of death.

Melanie Martin, Aaron Carter's former fiancée, has publicly expressed her grief following the singer's death on November 5, 2022, and has expressed her strength in her son amidst her emotional turmoil.

Martin and Carter first went Instagram official in January 2020 and dated on and off again in the years that followed, with Carter proposing to Martin and the couple welcoming a son together, before officially ending things in February 2022.

Who is Melanie Martin?

Melanie Martin and Aaron Carter who were dating since early 2020, announced their engagement in June 2020. Their relationship fluctuated, with a call-off in November 2021 after welcoming their first son. They later confirmed their return in February 2022, but their relationship status at the time of Carter's death remains unclear.

Martin and Carter welcomed a son named Prince, their first and only child together, on Nov. 22, 2021. The baby arrived after Martin underwent an emergency cesarean section following 13 hours of labor.

Carter shared the news of their son's arrival with a photo of himself cutting the umbilical cord. He also praised Martin for bringing their child into the world. "I'm so proud of you hunny you did it. I Love you with all my heart my beautiful blessings from god," he wrote in the caption.

Prince's arrival came more than a year after they revealed in a June 2020 YouTube livestream that Martin had suffered a miscarriage.


Less than two weeks after Aaron died, Melanie took to Instagram to express her grief. Beneath a carousel of photos of the two of them, many of which included Prince, Melanie shared what Aaron meant to her. "Aaron, you saved me from a fake life and showed me what true love is," she wrote in the caption. "You always believed in me, even when I didn’t believe in myself."

Melanie also shared Aaron's struggles, including multiple personality disorder, schizophrenia, acute anxiety, and manic depression. Despite her efforts, Melanie could only do so much for him. In March 2023, Melanie opened up about the bullying she and her son experienced since Aaron's death, with fans lashing out at them.

Melanie's social media is filled with videos and images of Prince truly living his best life. There are trips to Disneyland, a second birthday celebration, and times when the two of them are just goofing around. There are also a lot of videos of Aaron. It's clear that Melanie really loves Aaron and misses him dearly.


In addition to posting glimpses of her life on Instagram, she frequently posts on TikTok, dedicating the majority of her posts to Prince. The clips often showcase her son eating, playing, and saying new words for the first time. Most recently, she's been sharing video montages in tribute to Carter.

In addition to being a mom to Prince, Martin is also a dog mom. She revealed on her TikTok that she has four dogs and five puppies.

According to Fox News, in November 2023, Melanie filed a wrongful death lawsuit against pharmacies and doctors for over-prescribing medication to Prince, alleging that multiple doctors over-prescribed Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, and Alprazolam, which she believes contributed to his death.

The Los Angeles County Medical Examiner's Office listed Aaron's official cause of death as drowning with a secondary cause of Difluoroethane and Alprazolam, which were found in his system. His death was ruled an accident. "Difluoroethane is an aerosol propellant found in spray cans, and alprazolam is commonly referred to as Xanax," per Fox News.
