Aaron Carter has said he is going to share details about his “own experience” with Michael Jackson after he recently spoke out against the accusers in recent controversial documentary Leaving Neverland.
Leaving Neverland focuses on testimony by Wade Robson, 36, and James Safechuck, 41, who both claim that Michael Jackson sexually abused them when they were children.
Now, in a new interview with TMZ Carter said he reacted in a way that was “a little aggressive” to the allegations before adding that he was now preparing to speak out about his own experience.
He said: “To be honest, after seeing everyone’s story unfold, I mean, I was a little aggressive when I talked about it at first…Everyone has their own stories and everyone has their own situations…in regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I’m gonna be talking about in the future.” You can watch the interview here:
Whilst he wouldn’t be drawn on the nature of the “experience” he said that the Jackson family will have to “accept” what he says even if it’s something they “don’t like.”
Carter revealed that he is “writing a book about [his] life” and hinted that the experience would be shared in the memoir.
He then added further ambiguity, saying: “I’ll always have his back though…I will tell my truth” with no further elaboration.
He concluded: “[My family’s] known about it, they just never talk about it…I keep it real as fuck, I don’t care.”
Speaking of his own experiences with Jackson last month, Carter said: “I remember having the time of my life with Michael, I was about 15-years-old. I hung out with Michael Jackson, I stayed at his house, I stayed in his bedroom … it’s hard for me to understand that – how am I supposed to understand that when my own personal experience with him was gentle and beautiful and loving and embracing.”
The two-part film Leaving Neverland divided opinion when it premiered in the UK, with fans taking to the streets of London to protest it being broadcast while radio stations around the world started to ban Jackson’s songs. Controversial adverts have also appeared on London buses in defence of Jackson, and there has also been a surge for his music in the charts since the film aired.
Jackson denied any wrongdoing before he died in 2009.
