Jackson gave Aaron Carter cocaine when he was just 15, claims Carter. While Jackson cannot defend these accusations, it is only Carter’s word that this happened, although he would have nothing to gain from making these allegations.
Carter is claiming that at the time his mother called the police to report Michael Jackson for giving him cocaine and alcohol when he was just 15, according to Contact Music. Carter was friends with the late pop star and he admitted that he became really uncomfortable with the way Michael acted with him and when he told his mother, she called the police. The "Crazy Little Party Girl" singer spent a month in rehab this year and he worked on some emotional and spiritual issues during that stay.
The two year anniversary of Jackson's death was just memorialized by his friends and family and why would Carter pick this time for coming clean about the controversial relationship that he shared with Jackson?
In an interview Carter, now 23, says that he never talked about this before. " "I never talked about it... This is the first time. I do ... I miss Michael ... I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did ... But I was also troubled about what he did to me." He went on to say , "yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15."
"He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff ... We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behaviour bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police..."
Aaron's musical talent runs in his family, he has a famous sibling, Nick Carter, who was in the Backstreet Boys. Aaron is trying to relaunch his career and he is currently working on a new album. The time he spent in rehab will help him succeed with a comeback says his manager Johnny Wright.
Wright reports that "several months ago Aaron came to me to help him return to music and to restart his career. He has been in Orlando working on a new album and perfecting his live show and his physical body. Aaron, understanding the challenges and hard work it would take to get himself back to the top, requested to take some time before we started to heal some emotional and spiritual issues he was dealing with."
In 2004, People Magazine ran an article about Aaron's mother making these allegations and Aaron basically bashed her in the media for saying this. He denied these claims back then.
People wrote, "After Carter's mother Jane told "Access Hollywood" that her son had spent an unsupervised night with Jackson at his Neverland Ranch, and Carter's sister Leslie, 18, implied that drug use may have been involved, Carter told PEOPLE: "I don't do drugs. I didn't do them with Michael Jackson and I don't do them with anyone else."

This caused major friction in the Carter household, as Aaron adamantly denied this to the media and his mother was fighting to get some justice in this case. With Carter denying this, it soon fell by the wayside. At 15, Carter was probably the typical teen who would stick up for his friends and from the sound in this almost eight year-old interview, Carter really idolized Jackson.
