Sadly, Hollywood lost a young talent today. Nick and Aaron Carter’s 25-year-old sister Leslie (pictured: center) died early in the day Tuesday.

“Our family is grieving right now and it’s a private matter. We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter, and granddaughter, Leslie Carter,” the family said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Tuesday night. “We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”

It was reported that she died in upstate New York. No more details surrounding the circumstances of her death were given.

Like her famous brothers, Leslie was a singer. Her song “Like, Wow!” was on the Shrek soundtrack in 2001, when she was said to be working on an album.

She leaves behind a daughter, Alyssa Jane Ashton, who was born this past April.
