There’s a new twist in the death of Aaron Carter‘s late sister Leslie: She was battling post-partum depression, according to a new report.
“Leslie was depressed,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com of the aspiring singer who has a 10-month old son. “She was battling a major addiction and yes, it was a surprise when she suddenly died. But before anyone even said what caused it, everyone thought the same thing. She battled a prescription drug addiction for a while. Some think that she was even battling from postpartum depression, too.”
As for Leslie’s mental state, the source adds, “Everyone in that family is trying to make it in Hollywood and it caused jealousy and pitted some of them against each other. When Leslie got married, several members of her family didn’t even attend. Close friends definitely find it strange that Nick isn’t taking time off to go be with his family and he’s instead performing in NYC — even though he did dedicate his tour to her. Many think the way the family is handling it is very bizarre.”
