Aaron Carter, the pop and hip-hop singer of the 90s, has backtracked on his claims about Michael Jackson offering him drugs and alcohol.
The singer, younger brother of Nick Carter of the BackStreet Boys, has denied that he told OK magazine any such thing.
A representative of the singer now claims to TMZ that the report was totally fabricated and the singer was just very good friends with the King of Pop.
In the original article, written by journalist Daphne Barak, Carter was quoted as saying, “Yes, (MJ) gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. As for drugs? He gave me cocain.
Carter also claimed that he spent a lot of his time talking to Michael Jackson on phone and seeking his advice, till his mother got disturbed and called in the police.
The representative claims the story was totally fabricated and has even cited the YouTube video of the interview to verify the truthfulness of Aaron’s denial.
Daphne Barak has till date come up with no comments on the issue.
In an interview to Access Hollywood in 2004, Carter’s mother talked about an unsupervised night at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch and hinted that her son was offered drugs by the singer.
But Carter told People magazine, I don't do drugs.I didn't do them with Michael Jackson and I don't do them with anyone else.
Carter entered rehab in January after battling substance abuse issues for years. He checked into rehab for emotional and spiritual issues, according to his manager Johnny Wright.
