Kim Possible’s Christy Carlson Romano Spoke With Aaron Carter Before His Death, Talks Feeling A Kindred Spirit With The Former Child Star

Since Aaron Carter’s death at age 34, there’s been much discussion about the late star’s life. There were also various tributes shared by a number of people, including his brother, Backstreet Boys alum Nick Carter, and ex-girlfriend Hilary Duff. Sadly, the younger Carter’s life wasn’t all that easy. Someone who can relate to the hardships of growing up in the spotlight is Kim Possible star Christy Carlson Romano. A fellow star who found fame during the 2000s era, Romano revealed that she found a kindred spirit in the late singer while speaking with him shortly before his death.

The former Disney star admitted to ET that the music phenom was set to appear on her podcast, Vulnerable with Christy Carlson Romano, before his untimely passing. However, the “I Want Candy” singer didn’t show up for the October taping. Despite the fact that they both came up around the same time, the actress revealed that she didn’t know Carter “that well.” So she felt her podcast would’ve allowed her to get “to know him better.” She wanted her show to be “a safe place” for the singer to tell his story. Romano also recalled that before he cancelled on her, the two of them had a very personal conversation which helped enhance her view of the entertainer:

Before he was gonna come on, we were talking a little bit with him and his manager, about his love of his child. I’m a parent, and so I wanted to allow him to really share with everybody that side of him. We’re all human, and we all have our struggles, and I had my struggles. So, I just wanted to kind of give him an opportunity. I’m sad that didn’t happen. I grieve it, but I do want change, and I support all positive things in the direction of helping people.
