Hilary Duff Calls Out ‘Click-Bait’ Publisher Rushing To Release Aaron Carter’s Memoir

Hilary Duff says an upcoming tell-all ebook about Aaron Carter is monetizing his very latest and sudden loss of life.

The “How I Met Your Father” star, who famously dated the late musician once they had been each barely teenagers within the early 2000s, is looking ebook writer Ballast Books “disgusting” for asserting its plans to launch Carter’s unfinished memoir. The pop star died Saturday on the age of 34.

The writer introduced Wednesday that “Aaron Carter: An Incomplete Story of an Incomplete Life” would come out on Nov. 15, per Today. The ebook was co-written by Andy Symonds, who based on E! spent three years interviewing the “I’m All About You” singer.

The ebook reportedly will get into salacious particulars about Duff and Carter’s relationship — together with when he and Duff “lost [their] virginity to each other” based on an excerpt obtained by Web page Six.

“It’s really sad that within a week of Aaron’s death, there’s a publisher that seems to be recklessly pushing a book out to capitalize on this tragedy without taking appropriate time or care to fact check the validity of his work,” Duff stated in an announcement obtained by HuffPost and launched broadly to the media.

“To water down Aaron’s life story to what seems to be unverified click-bait for profit is disgusting. In no way do I condone shedding any light on what is so obviously an uninformed, heartless, money grab,” Duff added.

Carter’s administration despatched an announcement to E! concerning the upcoming ebook, calling it “obscenely disrespectful and unauthorized.”

“Aaron Carter hired me to help him tell the world his story,” Symonds, who can be the president and writer of Ballast Books, stated in an announcement. “That story, while tragically cut short, was filled with good and bad. His life was far from pretty, and understandably certain people in the public eye don’t want some of the stories Aaron tells in his book to come to light.”

“That doesn’t make them any less true or newsworthy,” Symonds added. “Aaron had a right — as we all do — to tell his story. As a journalist, I am honored that he chose me to help him do that. In addition to being cathartic for him, Aaron hoped this book would help others struggling with addiction and mental illness.”
