Tragic Aaron Carter 's ex-girlfriend Melanie Martin broke down in tears in a new video just hours after the rapper's tragic death at 34.
The singer's body was reportedly found by a staff member inside his Lancaster, California, home on Saturday morning.
Melanie, 30, who posted a two-second clip of herself crying on TikTok as she recorded herself while driving, was also pictured sobbing at the scene of Aaron's house.

It came after the singer vowed to get custody of his baby son in one of the rapper's last interviews before his death.
Website TMZ said Carter was found dead in the bath at his home in Lancaster, California, on Saturday morning. Representatives of his team confirmed his death.
The former child star welcomed 11-month-old Prince with his ex-fiance Melanie, but lost custody of his son and checked into rehab in an effort to bring his child back home.
He claimed that he had begun a month-long outpatient programme with Los Angeles-based Lionrock Recovery, which deals with substance abuse.
He said in a video with bartender Melanie: "I haven't had any relapses or anything like that, it's just triggers are big right now for me and I want my son back."
He added: "I do group therapy, parenting classes, domestic violence classes, I got myself certified in CPR, just a lot of different things.

"It's new being a parent but it's actually become really fun and exciting and given me a new chapter of my life. It's been amazing.”
Fans showed their support for Melanie in the comment thread of her post, with one saying: "I am so so sorry. Please remember you have the biggest part of him then anyone does and that is Prince."
Another commented: "You tried so many times to save him. I’m so sorry that Prince has lost his daddy."
The heavily tattooed singer, who had reportedly survived more than 100 seizures from a "dusting" addiction, is believed to have spent $200,000 (£177,000) on care to make the couple a "fully functional family."
Melanie's mother currently has custody of the couple's son under a court order, Aaron claimed, amid drug and domestic violence claims.
In the interview, he denied claims of being addicted to the medication Xanax. which he was prescribed, or being an excessive alcohol user.
