Leslie Carter, the sister of Aaron Carter and the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, has died at age 25, reports People. Though Leslie, a singer, was signed to DreamWorks and had a song (“Like Wow!”) on the Shrek soundtrack, she struggled to equal the success of her brothers. (Though she did appear on the family’s E! reality show, House of Carters.)

The Carter family issued this statement: “Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.” Leslie is survived by her immediate family, as well as her husband Mike and 10-month-old daughter Alyssa Jane Ashton.
