Nick Carter has finally broken his silence about his absence from his sister Leslie‘s funeral this weekend.
“I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic,” Nick said in a statement.
Nick, who dedicated a song to Leslie during an NYC performance last week, performed in Atlantic City and hosted an after party there over the weekend.
Still, Nick said, “I love my family. I want to thank everyone for all of their compassion and support that I have received during this most difficult time,” he added. “There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive and focused.”
