Aaron Carter, famous for his music gigs back in the 90s, has opened up about his experience with Michael Jackson. In a recently released clip from Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition, the former child star gave a brief comment, explaining how the Billy Jeans was inappropriate with him, but only once, reported E! News.
Carter said, "Michael was a really good guy as far as I know, really good guy. He never really, like, he never did anything that was inappropriate except for one time. There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate." No other details were shared.
The star had criticised Wade Robson and James Safechuck after the release of Leaving Neverland, in which they accused Jackson of sexually abusing them while they were still children. In an interview with TMZ, Carter expressed his anger and said that he was upset at his name being brought into the public conversation.
Carter had also shared that people were now tarnishing Jackson's reputation and "stomping on a legend's grave" by coming forth with their accusations. He stated that Robson and Safechuck should have come forward with the allegations while the late pop icon was still alive.
He additionally noted his personal experience working with Jackson, referring to the latter as "gentle and beautiful and loving and embracing". Carter also mentioned that he "hung out" with the Thriller singer in his house and his bedroom, when he was 15 years old. The Bounce star told TMZ that he idolised Jackson, just like Robson and Safechuck did.
However, a month later, Carter admitted to being "a little aggressive" while speaking about the allegations. He acknowledged that he doesn't know what happened with others as he was not present at the scene of the incident.
The 31-year-old artist, while contemplating writing a book on his life and his experiences with Jackson, revealed, "I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I'm going to be talking about that in the future." He messaged Jackson's estate stating, "Stay strong. I love you guys and even if I say something that you don't like, it's still my truth and you're just going to have to accept it."
On the other hand, Jackson's family and estate have denied all allegations made against the late singer to maintain his innocence. They denounced Leaving Neverland and have filed a lawsuit against HBO's documentary.
