The Carter family has lost another part of their tribe.
Bobbie Jean’s mother, Jane Carter, released a statement to the outlet Saturday about her daughter’s “sudden” passing.
“I am in shock from learning of the sudden death of my daughter, Bobbie Jean; and I will need time to process the terrible reality of this happening for the third time,” she said, referring to death of Aaron in 2022 and Leslie Carter in 2012.
“When I am able to think clearly, I’ll release a fuller statement; but until then I would request to be left to grieve in private.”
Jane added, “[H]owever deeply a parent feels the loss of a child, the suffering of a young child at the loss of a parent must be much greater.
“So, I would ask the sympathetic to say a prayer for my precious 8-year-old granddaughter Bella, who previously lost her father and is now also left without her mother.”
Details surrounding Bobbie Jean’s death are scarce, but TMZ reported that she died Saturday in Florida.

Bobbie Jean has struggled with substance abuse and addiction throughout her life.
Most recently, she was arrested for retail theft and drug possession in June after allegedly attempting to steal $55 worth of crafts from a Brooksfield, Fla., Hobby Lobby.
After Bobbie Jean was brought into an office by store employees who called the cops, the “House of Carters” alum allegedly grabbed her purse “in a panic” and tossed a powder-blue container under the desk.
A field test later confirmed that the container had grams of fentanyl inside.
This is the third tragedy for the Carter family, who have been heavily impacted by substance abuse.
In January 2012, Bobbie Jean’s younger sister, Leslie, died of an overdose at the age of 25.
Then, in November 2022, Aaron was found dead in his bathtub in his Lancaster, Calif., home. The “I Want Candy” singer died from drowning and the effects of difluoroethane, a flammable gas, and alprazolam, a generic form of Xanax. He was 34.
