Legendary Michael Jackson, commonly known as the “King of Pop,” has recently resurfaced back into the spotlight after the premiere of “Leaving Neverland.” The 4-hour long documentary tells the story of two men who alleged that Jackson sexually abused them as young boys.
The documentary sparked a massive controversy. Fans were torn on whether or not to believe the disturbing stories, potentially damaging Jackson’s long-lived legacy in the music world.
Amidst the release of the controversial documentary, singer Aaron Carter touched on his former friendship with Jackson in a recent interview. Carter first rose to fame as a 1990s heartthrob with hits like “Aaron’s Party” and “I Want Candy.” Shortly after, he met Jackson in 2001. They quickly became friends and collaborated on a few musical projects.
Carter has stayed firm on Jackson being a “good guy.” However, he did claim that the late music artist did something “inappropriate” once during the time they spent together.
According to PEOPLE, Carter stated, “Michael was a really good guy, as far as I know, a really good guy. He never did anything that was inappropriate.”
“Except for one time. There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate,” he continued.
Carter did not go into details about the incident he was referring to. This is not the first time that Carter has addressed rumors about Jackson’s alleged sexual misconduct. Several years ago, Carter told PEOPLE that they were good friends and intimacy was never a part of their relationship.
If Carter decides to elaborate on the alleged incident, this story will be updated accordingly. In other trending news, a well-known supporting actor tragically took his own life at only 42 years old.
