Aaron Carter's son, 2, sues doctors, pharmacies for 'over-prescribing controlled medications' to popstar
Melanie Martin filed the shocking lawsuit on behalf of their 2-year-son Princeton
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Melanie Martin, Aaron Carter's ex-fiancee, has filed a shocking lawsuit on behalf of their 2-year-old son Princeton against two doctors who administered the singer's medications before his death.
Princeton has sought monetary damages from the doctors and two pharmacies, as reported by RadarOnline.
Aaron died due to 'prescription drug overdose'
According to the lawsuit, Aaron died on November 5, 2022, as a result of a "prescription drug overdose." He drowned in his bathtub after taking Xanax and huffing, according to the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner.
According to the lawsuit, Aaron saw one doctor on June 16, 2020, who prescribed him controlled medications.
Princeton's lawyer said that the doctor failed to search the database to see if Aaron was "obtaining the same or similar controlled substances from other sources."
According to the lawsuit, Aaron went to the dentist on April 26, 2022. The dentist is accused of "over-prescribing controlled medications to [Aaron] without medical justification, including but not limited to hydrocodone and oxycodone, as well as alprazolam."
The plaintiffs claim that there was no "medical justification for the controlled substances prescribed by Defendants and that Defendants were negligent and or/grossly negligent in prescribing controlled substances."
About Princeton's lawsuit
According to Princeton's lawsuit, the pharmacy where Aaron filled his first doctor's prescription should have understood the prohibited medications and the dosages were not commensurate with what a general practice psychiatrist would supply to a patient.
The lawsuit claims that pharmacy employees should have known that the "type of controlled substances and the quantities that were distributing to [Aaron] were typically not consistent with what a general dentistry practice would provide to a patient."
Princeton's lawsuit seeks unspecified monetary compensation for his "loss of love, affection, and care."
Melanie Martin didn't receive closure from autopsy
Martin told TMZ after his autopsy results were released, "The results of the autopsy are not closure for me. It claims death is by drowning but also adds he was wearing a t-shirt and necklace in the bathtub which doesn't make sense, why would he be in a bathtub with clothes on?
"I am still in shock and still miss Aaron every day. I don't understand the chain of events and this report only has us asking more questions."v
