Continuing his penchant for baffling statements, former child star Aaron Carter has seemingly changed his story about Michael Jackson. Carter now implies that Jackson may have molested him, even though he denied it in the past.
The “Aaron’s Party” singer said this weekend that he intends to tell his own story about his experience with Jackson. He also showed remorse for attacking the documentary Leaving Neverland. In the past, Carter had staunchly defended Jackson and labeled the Leaving Neverland accusers Wade Robeson and James Safechuck “liars.”
“To be honest,” Carter says, “after seeing everyone’s story unfold I was a little aggressive when I talked about it at first. Everyone has their own stories, everyone has their own situations. I really can’t take away from that. I don’t know…In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I will be talking about that in the future.”
Carter declined to comment further or to characterize his “experience” with Jackson as abuse. He said only that he will be writing a memoir, and that he intends to tell all.
“I’ll always have his back though,” Carter added, further confusing his insinuations. In the past, Carter has made strange and often contradictory claims, including coming out as bisexual only to later deny he had done so. Carter has also defended former music svengali Lou Pearlman against allegations of sexual misconduct.
