  • Aaron Carter was cremated after his untimely passing earlier this month
  • The cause of his death is still listed as "deferred" on his death certificate
  • Carter's twin, Angel, will hold onto the late singer's ashes until the funeral

Aaron Carter was cremated after his untimely passing at age 34 earlier this month.

A copy of the late singer-actor's death certificate obtained by Entertainment Tonight has revealed that Carter's body was cremated.

The former teen heartthrob's final resting place has yet to be announced. While his funeral is still undecided, his twin sister, Angel, will be holding onto his ashes, noted the entertainment news outlet.

Carter's mom, Jane, is listed on the death certificate as the informant. Meanwhile, the late star's occupation was listed as a musician working in the entertainment industry.

As for his cause of death, the certificate indicated that it is "deferred," which means an autopsy has yet to determine it.

Early this week, unnamed sources told TMZ that Carter passed away without a will. He was reportedly advised by his lawyer to make one since he has a child who depended on him, but the document "was not completed in time."

Carter's son with fiancée Melanie Martin, Prince, was born in November last year. Since Carter did not have a will, the State of California will be the one to decide who will inherit his estate.

The singer had $400,000 before his death. At the peak of his career, he made over $200 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Nick Carter's younger brother was found dead in his bathtub in his Lancaster, California, home on Nov. 5. The Backstreet Boys member told fans his heart was "broken" upon learning about Aaron's demise.

"My heart is broken, Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded. I have always held on to the hope that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed," Nick wrote on Instagram.

He continued," 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. Now you can have the peace you could never find here on earth... God, please take care of my baby brother."
