Homicide detectives were immediately sent to the scene, but it has not been confirmed if there is any reason to believe there was foul play involved in his unexpected passing.

Paparazzi later photographed paramedics and sheriff's vehicles parked just outside of Carter's home, which was blocked off with caution tape.

The "Leave It Up To Me" artist's death comes a little over a month after concerned fans called the cops to Carter's home for a welfare check. As OK! previously reported, some suspected Carter had overdosed on drugs after he was seen acting strangely in an Instagram Live shared in late September. He specifically sparked concerns after the video went back and viewers could hear noises of spraying and inhaling in the background.

Police found no drugs at his home and the musician eventually admitted that he'd simply been playing a joke on his fans with a can of air freshener, noting: "I'm tired of people coming after me so I trolled everybody."

This was far from the first time that the troubled singer had police called to his home. Last December, Carter claimed to be "trapped" in his bedroom after his on-again, off-again ex-girlfriend Melanie Martin allegedly refused to leave the property. He later insisted via his Instagram Story that Martin was calling the cops "in the other room."

Carter started his singing career at only 9-years-old and rose to fame in the late 90s. However, his early journey to fame was followed by a variety of legal issues, family problems and mental health concerns that haunted him throughout his adult life.

He leaves behind his son, Prince, who he shared with Martin.

TMZ was first to report Carter's shocking death.
