AceShowbiz - Aaron Carter is once again revisiting his relationship with Michael Jackson after resurfacing child molestation allegations against the late pop star. The 31-year-old singer recently joined the cast of WE tv's "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition" along with his mother Jane Carter, and he reveals in an interview conducted after the show that the counseling he received during the show helped him sort out his feelings regarding the King of Pop.
"Michael was a really good guy as far as I know," Aaron initially says, still defending Michael. He adds though, "He never did anything that was inappropriate except for one time. There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate."
Aaron doesn't offer details of the "inappropriate" thing that Michael did to him. The former Jackson 5 member's family has not responded to Aaron's claim.
Aaron's latest statement comes as a shock as he has several times defended Michael. The two first met in the recording studio in 2011 when Aaron was 14. The "Billie Jean" singer asked the "I Want Candy" hitmaker to partake in his charity song "What More Can I Give?" at the time. They later formed a close friendship.
Back in 2004, he denied that Michael ever came onto him sexually. "Michael and I have been friends for three years. ... Nothing happened between me and Michael," he told PEOPLE. "We didn't sleep in the same room, we didn't share a bed. We have a normal friendship. There's nothing sexual to it."
In 2016, Aaron said of the 13-time Grammy winner, "Michael was an amazing man. All the people who ever said anything about him are just all full of crap. I was there with Michael and I know him. I know his true colors. I got so much hate when I said that Michael Jackson passed the torch to me. You guys realize that I have his jacket. I have his glove. I have lots of things from him - memorabilia that I would never even tell you about that's sitting in a vault right now."
In March of this year, the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant once again defended Michael amid the release of HBO's documentary "Leaving Neverland", which features Michael's accusers Wade Robson and James Shafechuck. He said the two men were "stomping on an icon and a legend's grave" by coming forward with their accusations against Michael and questioned why they had not come forward with their allegations when Michael was alive. He also claimed that Michael was "gentle and beautiful and loving and embracing" based on his personal experience with the late star.
