Apparently the only way to get producers interested in a documentary or reality show from some family members who want to be paid, is to allege the dead former teen singer was murdered.

He wasn’t.

Aaron Carter’s family says he didn’t drown in tub amid drug deal mystery

Aaron Carter’s family believe his death was not caused by drowning in his bathtub — but rather from an overdose after a drug deal gone wrong.

The troubled singer died at the age of 34 on November 5. A Los Angeles sheriff’s spokesperson told The Post that deputies responded to Carter’s residence at 10:58 a.m. local time and found a deceased person.

A cause of death was not released — but sources said at the time Carter was discovered in his bathtub after a 911 call was made about a “drowning.”

Now, his fiancée Melanie Martin and mother Jane Carter have told TMZ that the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office informed them that there was no water found in Carter’s lungs — ruling out drowning as a potential cause of death.

The Post has reached out to Carter family reps for comment.

Martin — who recently regained full custody of their 1-year-old son Prince — claims she found text messages on her late fiancé’s phone with a conversation about owing an unidentified person $800 for an unknown substance.

She said Carter had told the person he didn’t need the drug anymore, and the person responded that the money was still owed. Carter allegedly responded asking if he was being threatened — but the conversation ended there. – Source
