The fiancée of the late Aaron Carter, Melanie Martin, has reportedly been granted custody.
Thirteen-month-old Prince Lyric had been in the care of Martin’s mother since September, because of what Carter had said were concerns about domestic violence and drug use. The singer had even checked into rehab, where he was also taking parenting classes, because of his worries.
According to a representative for Martin, a Los Angeles court ruled that Martin is now fit to care for Prince. Martin later confirmed it herself.
Carter, 34, was found dead Nov. 5 at his home in Lancaster, Calif.
His official cause of death has not yet been determined, pending toxicology test results.
