He didn't say it in those exact words, but former child star Aaron Carter finally admitted that pop icon Michael Jackson tried to get him high and drunk so he could have his way with him. At the time, Carter, the younger brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, was 15 and riding a wave of success as a teen pop star.
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. 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.
I believe him. Rumors swirled for years about Jackson's interest in the adolescent Carter. But Carter consistently denied the rumors. Carter, now 23, fit the profile of the young, white tenderoni's that Jackson was attracted to. Jackson even dyed his eldest son's hair to make him look more like Carter.
Sometimes it takes years for victims of abuse to accept what happened to them -- and it takes even longer for them to speak about it publicly. It's not far fetched to believe that Michael, a rumored pedophile with a substance abuse problem, would ply young Carter with drugs and alcohol. After all, this is not the first time we've heard of Michael doing such things.
Jackson died on June 25, 2009 of respiratory and cardiac arrest after receiving a lethal dose of an anesthetic commonly used in hospital operating rooms. His personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is currently on trial for administering the drug to Jackson at home.
