However, in most states when an unmarried person dies without a will and leaves a child, the child inherits the parent’s estate.
A source told TMZ that Aaron was ‘not in a good position financially at the time of his death’, while his home was recently put on the market.
The publication was also told that due to drama between Aaron and his fiance Melanie Martin, the LA County Department of Children and Family Services got involved and 11-month-old Prince was removed from their home and has since been living with Melanie’s mother. September

The release of Aaron Carter’s memoir has been temporarily shelved amid backlash from the late star’s management and ex-girlfriend Hilary Duff, who slammed it as a ‘heartless money grab’.

Andy Symonds, the author who co-wrote the book with Carter, hit back with a criticism Exclusive statement to DailyMail.com Friday.

But with the family just beginning the grieving process, Atherton said, the decision was made to ‘put the book on hold for the time being’.
‘Out of respect for the Carter family, my client has decided to postpone further publication of the book at this time,’ the statement added, ‘Mr. Carter was not only a celebrity, but a father, a brother, a son and a friend to many who still mourn him.’
Atherton went on to counter some of the reactions which ‘concentrated on a small number of interactions during Mr Carter’s early years.
He believes the memoir has a broader message and ‘a more important story about Mr. Carter’s life and what people can learn from his professional successes, personal struggles and tragic passing.’
The decision to temporarily suspend publication of the book came a day after Hilary Duff and the late singer’s management called Ballast Books’ decision to go ahead with the publication as a ‘sad’ attempt to ‘capitalize’ on the former child star’s tragic death.
Controversial: Andy Symonds, the author who co-wrote the book with Carter, responded to the criticism in a statement to DailyMail.com on Friday.
In the book, Carter claims she lost her virginity to Duff when she was just 12 and he was ‘maybe 13’.
‘Aaron Carter hired me to help him tell his story to the world. That story, while tragically short, was filled with good and bad, Symonds told the Daily Mail in another interview. ‘His life was far from pretty, and understandably some people don’t want the public eye to see any of the stories Aaron tells in his book.’
The unfinished memoir was written over three years, and a quote obtained by the New York Post reads: ‘Hilary and I lost our virginity to each other in a hotel in LA.
‘I think it was his birthday, maybe his 13th [September 28 2000], but I don’t remember. His friends went in, and we shouted at them to get out.’
Singer Aaron and actress Hilary, now 35, met as fellow teen idols in 2000 and dated on-and-off until 2003.
Duff told DailyMail.com exclusively: ‘It’s really sad that within a week of Aaron’s death, a publisher seems to be recklessly putting out a book to capitalize on this tragedy without taking the time or care to verify the validity of his work. .’
He added, ‘To think of Aaron’s life story as unverified click-bait for profit is disgusting. By no means do I condone casting any light on so obviously an ill-informed, heartless, transfer of money.’
The late star’s management team later blasted new music less than a week after his death, along with the ‘obscenely disrespectful’ and ‘unauthorised’ release of the late star’s unfinished memoir.
“In the short few days following the death of our dear friend we have been trying to grieve and process while simultaneously dealing with obscenely disrespectful and unauthorized releases including an album, a single and now what appears to be a book,” read a statement sent by Big Umbrella Management’s Taylor Helgeson on Page Six Thursday.
