Aaron Carter’s representative says that the story that first appeared in the Australian version of the OK Magazine is false: Carter never said that he was offered cocaine by Michael Jackson, according to TMZ.
What the article in OK Magazine says
Here is what the article in the magazine said about the former Dancing With The Stars contestant and his relationship with the former King of Pop.
Two years after the passing of the pop icon, Aaron Carter decided to come clean about a certain period of time in his past that was related to Jackson. So during a charity visit to Marbella, Spain, he told interviewer Daphne Barak some controversial things regarding his relationship with the pop star.
The Ok Magazine claims that Aaron, who is now 23 years old, said he was offered wine and cocaine by Michael Jackson, when he was only 15 years old. He said “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.”
When asked by the reporter to detail, Carter said that “Yes, [MJ] gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. As for drugs? He gave me cocaine.”
He also said that the he could have said no to the offer, but he admired the King of Pop and they used to spend hours on the phone together. However, Carter says that Michael’s behavior made him feel weird and his mother intervened between them. “I admired Michael, but his behaviour bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police…”
What Aaron Carter says
Now, more than a week after the story was published, Carter says, through his representative, that he had never said these things and that the story was 100% a creation of the OK mag. “Nothing was said that was reported”. He even points to a Youtube video of the interview where he does not mention any of these things.

On the other hand, Barak insists that Backstreet Boys Nick Carter’s little brother had told her Jackson “gave him alcohol and cocaine while he was 15. He also said that Michael invited him to sleep in his room, and when Aaron woke up at 5:00 AM, he found Michael on his bed.”
