Leslie Carter was laid to rest in upstate New York over the weekend, just days after her shocking death at 25, but famous big brother Nick did not attend the funeral.

The singer honored his commitment to perform at a concert that evening.

In a statement, Nick Carter explained, “I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic.”

“I want to thank everyone for all of their compassion and support that I have received during this most difficult time,” continued to Backstreet Boy. “There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister. I am trying to stay healthy, positive and focused.”

According to some reports, Nick believes the family attempted to keep him away from the service.

Earlier in the week, Nick posted a statement in which he thanked fans for their prayers and said “performing is cathartic to me.”

Aaron Carter was at the funeral, among approximately 60 mourners.

While no official cause of death has been determined, a police report indicates that Leslie overdosed on prescription pills.
