Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter is upset with brother Aaron and other members of his family for not letting him know about his sister's funeral plans.
The pop star was absent as his 25-year-old sibling Leslie was laid to rest in New York state on Sunday (05Feb12) and it was initially reported that he was too busy touring to attend - but now the Backstreet's Back singer has revealed he had no idea when the funeral was because members of his estranged family had failed to tell him.
He tells TMZ.com, "I wanted to be at my sister's funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic."
Sources close to Carter tell the website he felt that family members went out of their way to make sure he was not included in their weekend plans.
Nick adds, "There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive, and focused."
