31-year-old Aaron Carter, who will be appearing on the upcoming season of 'Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition', defended Michael Jackson but did recall that there was a one time where the late pop icon was "inappropriate".
In interview clips released by WE TV — the network behind 'Marriage Boot Camp' — Carter is seen describing his relationship with Michael Jackson much before the sexual abuse allegations surfaced.
Carter defends MJ saying, "Michael was a really good guy, as far as I know, a really good guy," before adding, "He never did anything that was inappropriate. Except for one time."
"There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate," he shared.
Aaron and his brother Nick had recorded ' What More Can I Give' with Michael Jackson in 2001.
Carter did not elaborate any further on what the inappropriate incident was and what it involved. He will be appearing alongside his mother Jane Carteron on the reality show which puts a group of dysfunctional families together in the hope to resolve the family feuds.
Carter has benefited from the show before as well and was able to mend his relationship with 'Backstreet Boys' member and his older brother Nick. "'Family Boot Camp' literally gave me the strength and the ability to feel more comfortable in my own skin. My brother [Nick] and I weren’t talking before I went on to this show. And after, we did it, we’re back talking again," Carter shared.
Michael Jackson has been at the center of controversy after HBO's documentary 'Leaving Neverland' released in January and featured interviews with Wade Robson and James Safechuck who accused the 'Thriller' singer of sexually abusing them when they were children.
Celebrities such as Macaulay Culkin, Barbara Streisand, Corey Feldman, Diana Ross, and others have defended Jackson after the allegations surfaced.
The Jackson family have denied and refuted all the claims made in the documentary and have compared the film to a 'public lynching'.
Jackson was acquitted at his criminal trial which took place in 2005 and involved another young child. At the time, Robson had testified saying that he had slept in Jackson's room several times and had never been molested.
As a boy, Safechuck too made similar statements.
In 2013, both the men filed lawsuits citing stress and trauma had made them face the truth and admit that they were being sexually abused.
