The former couple had a tumultuous relationship after going public with their romance in January 2020. 

Three months later, they announced they were expecting their first child together but Martin miscarried two months into the pregnancy ‘due to stress conditions’. 

They got engaged in June that year and Martin fell pregnant again nearly a year later, before welcoming their son Prince Lyric in November 2021. 

Carter and Martin split just a week before welcoming their son but reconciled a short while later. They split again for the final time in February this year. 

Confirming their break-up, Carter said at the time: ‘My relationship has come to a point where we have to part ways. Please respect my privacy at the time. Thank you.’

‘My heart has been broken today. Even though my brother and I have had a complicated relationship, my love for him has never ever faded,’ the popstar said. 

‘I have always held onto the hope, that he would somehow, someday want to walk a healthy path and eventually find the help that he so desperately needed.

‘Sometimes we want to blame someone or something for a loss. But the truth is that addiction and mental illness is the real villain here.’
