Editors at TMZ reported on Saturday that the singer/rapper had been found dead at his home in Lancaster, California. He was 34. On Sunday, Nick took to social media to post an emotional tribute in honour of his younger sibling. "Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss, but the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here. I will miss my brother more than anyone will ever know. I love you Chizz." Nick Carter / Instagram.
