Hilary Duff was among the celebrities who are mourning the passing of American singer Aaron Carter, who died on Saturday (US time).

Duff and Carter used to be in a relationship in their early teens. Then both 13 years of age, they met at the set of Disney’s Lizzie McGuirre, topbilled by Duff, where Carter guested, and hit it off then. Sadly, the young couple parted ways after just a year and a half together, but later on reconnected and remained friends.

“For Aaron- I am deeply sorry that life was so hard for you and that you had to struggle infront of the whole world. You had a charm that was absolutely effervescent… Boy, did my teenage self love you deeply,” Duff posted in her tribute.

“Sending love to your family at this time. Rest easy,” she further said.

Carter soared to fame as a brother of Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter at the turn of the millennium with his hit album “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It).” Reports abroad said the troubled 34-year-old singer was found dead in his bath tub at his residence in Lancaster, California.
