"I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed," he continued.

Although Aaron and Nick appeared to be closer as children and even toured together, the brothers had a rocky relationship for much of their adult lives. Nick filed a restraining order against him in 2019, claiming Aaron — who had struggled heavily with substance abuse and mental illness — had told him he'd been "harboring intentions" of murdering Nick's pregnant wife and unborn child.

Meanwhile, Aaron often ranted about his tense ties to his family, from accusing Nick of bullying him throughout his life to alleging his late sister had sexually assaulted him.
