The Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter says he wanted to attend his sister Leslie Carter's funeral in Upstate New York this weekend, but his own family made it impossible.

Say what now?

As the 25-year-old Leslie was laid to rest at a small ceremony after a suspected drug overdose claimed her life last week, several family members were on hand.

Just not Nick.

Nick Carter said that, “I wanted to be at my sister’s funeral, but my family has always had a complicated dynamic." He would not explain the circumstances.

Sources close to the singer, however, say feels family members went out of their way to make sure he was not included. Brother Aaron Carter was present.

"There are so many emotions for me surrounding the loss of my sister," Nick said, again not elaborating. "I am trying to stay healthy, positive, and focused.”

Leslie's stepmother, Ginger, said reports of Nick being excluded by the family are not true, but quickly hung up the phone before explaining any further.

The death of Leslie Carter remains unknown, pending a medical examiner's findings, as brothers Nick and Aaron Carter mourn this surprising and tragic loss.

The Erie County (N.Y.) Medical Examiner's Office is investigating, but, so far there has been no word on the cause of her passing. Leslie Carter was just 25.

Sadly, the family itself is for now as in the dark as their well-wishers, with a source close to the Carters calling the death as "mysterious" as it was abrupt.

Aaron Carter, currently starring in the off-Broadway production of The Fantasticks, will be temporarily leaving his performing duties to his understudy.

"Aaron is taking a few days off from the show" due to these tragic circumstances, John Capo, the spokesperson for the production, said Wednesday.

"His Fantasticks family loves him and offers him support and prayers during this difficult time," Capo said. "Aaron's understudy and friend, Matt Leisy, will be covering Aaron's role until his return. We thank everyone for the outpouring of concern."

As for Nick Carter?
