Just two years after the death of Michael Jackson, more and more of his mark on the music industry is being revealed and while some of it may be positive and bright some of it is comes a little tarnished and isn’t so good. In a recent interview with OK! Magazine, young pop star Aaron Carter opens up about his troubled past with Michael and to be honest, my jaw hit the floor when I read what Aaron reveals. I am sure you will all be surprised too.
“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… Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15.”
Aaron is also stating that Michael Jackson is the one who introduced him to drugs:
“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 behavior bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police…”
Let’s go back to 2004. Aaron’s mother sat down for a candid interview with Access Hollywood about Aaron spending an unsupervised night at Neverland Ranch. She suggested during the interview that Michael offered her son drugs. In a related article in People magazine out around the same time, Aaron stated he didn’t do drugs and didn’t do drugs with Michael or anyone else.
Now, it seems like Aaron is ready to come to terms with his past. Do you think that any of this history has contributed to his stints in rehab and trouble with substance abuse? I have a little bit of a hunch.
In other Michael Jackson/Aaron Carter news, Perez Hilton recently reported that the singer’s former manager Aldo DiSorbo is in possession of a crystal studded jacket that Michael gave to Aaron. The reason for keeping it? Collateral for a loan of over $100,000.
