Days before Aaron Carter died, he teased that his California home, where his body was discovered Saturday morning in the bathtub, was up for sale.

“I’m selling my second home,” Carter, 34, wrote in a tweet last Saturday, October 29. “Real estate has been super good for me. Ready for a new chapter in my 3rd house where I plan to stay to make a great life for my family.”

“This year has been very difficult, but I have learned so much,” he added. “Thanks for the support everyone.”

Carter was engaged to Melanie Martin. The two, who had a once again dysfunctional relationship, had just welcomed their first child last November – a baby boy named Prince Lyric Carter.

But it seems he never had the chance to buy his third home.

“Deputies responded to the Valley Vista Dr block at Aaron Carter’s residence at 10:58 a.m. [PST] this morning,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff told the Post in a statement, adding “they have located a deceased person.”

The house spans over 4,100 square feet.
