Despite appearing MIA on social media, Duff briefly returned to the platform after learning about the tragic death of her ex-boyfriend Aaron Carter on Saturday, November 5, who was found submerged in water in the bathtub at his Lancaster, Calif., home.
“For Aaron — I’m deeply sorry that life was so hard for you and that you had to struggle in front of the whole world,” the saddened actress expressed in an Instagram post on the day of his passing. “You had a charm that was absolutely effervescent … boy did my teenage self love you deeply. Sending love to your family at this time. Rest easy.”
