A heartbreaking interview in which Aaron Carter says his biggest fear was dying too young has been resurfaced after his tragic death on Nov. 5 at age 34.

During a 2017 appearance on “The Doctors,” Dr. Travis Stork asked the “Aaron’s Party” singer what his “greatest fear” was.

“Not being able to live as long as I can. That’s my greatest fear,” the former child star responded.

Elsewhere in the interview, Aaron was asked whether he worried about overdosing after his sister Leslie died of a drug overdose in 2012 at age 25.

“I mean there’s always that worry, but there’s also the fact that I had to kiss my sister goodbye in the coffin,” he said at the time.

“I had to kiss her right on her cheek and I kept kissing her. That was a scary thing.”

He continued, “My family knows — before I did the show ‘The Doctors’ — that I was taking Xanax and stuff like that. [But] I know that there is no happy ending to any of those medications.”

Carter was found dead Saturday morning in a bathtub at his California home. The cause of death is yet to be determined.

“Aaron worked very hard towards the end of his life in recovery, to be a good father and to make amends with his family,” his rep told Page Six, referencing the son he shared with Melanie Martin.

The on-again, off-again couple got engaged in 2020, and welcomed a son named Prince in 2021.

However, the singer — who was the younger brother of Backstreet Boys icon Nick Carter — battled addiction and family trauma in the final years of his life.

As recently as September, the “I Want Candy” hitmaker revealed that he had “voluntarily” checked into an outpatient program at a rehab center in an attempt to regain custody of his 11 month old son, Prince.
