Pop star Nick Carter remains estranged from his divorced parents, a year after they snubbed his wedding to fiancee Lauren Kitt.

The Backstreet Boys singer famously fell out with members of his immediate family after they partly blamed him for the death of his sister Leslie, who suffered a fatal drug overdose in 2012. He stayed away from Leslies funeral and the family skipped his nuptials with Lauren in Santa Barbara, California, in April 2014.


Nick, who previously battled addiction issues himself, has since opened up further about the family troubles which he has been dealing with since childhood, revealing money and alcohol problems didnt help matters at home.

(The) dysfunction in the family, it was a lot about money and all the things we didnt have (as a) lower-middle class family, and so it was a lot of tension within the household, he told Access Hollywood Live on Friday. Alcohol was definitely around us all the time, so I was kinda tortured for so many years and I had a lot of stress.

The singer confesses his relationship with his mom Jane and dad Robert is now almost non-existent, but he has made an effort to repair his fractured bonds with his siblings.

I have not spoken to them (parents) in quite some time actually, but I still have a good relationship that were building with my brother and sisters, he said. Were trying to make sure we can salvage that, so were working on that.

Nick credits his bandmates with providing him with the loving family he yearned for and insists, I was saved by the guys and God gave me a new life.

He has also been turning to the other Backstreet Boys for help and advice on how to maintain a good marriage.

Its tough, but… Im able to go to the guys in my group and see how they have happy marriages, how theyve had happy families and use them as the examples to build on, he added.
