Former teen pop star says Jacko fed him wine and coke
Well it didn’t take long for the world to stop mourning the death of the King of Pop and pick up right where they left off, by bashing him. A little over two years ago Michael Jackson died of respiratory and cardiac arrest after receiving a lethal dose of an anaesthetic commonly used in operating rooms. While Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is currently on trial for administering the drug to MJ, Jackson himself may also be on trial in the court of public opinion after Aaron Carter’s revelation that Jackson fed him wine and cocaine when he was just fifteen years old.
A little wine and a little cocaine can kick start one hell of a party, but it’s nothing short of creepy when a grown man is pushing it on a minor. Of course, Jackson’s history of pedophile like behaviour has been well documented, but what interesting here is why Carter waited until Jackson was dead to make these revelations.
In an interview with OK Magazine Aaron Carter, now 23 years old 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. Yes, he gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. He gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff. We spoke afterwards, hours and hours, on the phone. I admired Michael, but his behavior bothered me a lot. Then my mother called the police.”
I guess it would be kind of fun to be partying and carrying on with illicit drugs with the King of Pop, that is until his pants slowly start coming off and he starts humming the tune to “Beat it.” Love his music, love him, but as soon as I saw him rock the pervert mustache, I had my doubts.
All jokes aside, it is a little bizarre how Carter misses Jackson. Am I wrong to question the timing of this revelation? For years Carter denied any wrongdoing on Jackson’s part. This revelation would certainly put the former teen pop star sensation back into the public eye and possibly help resurrect his career, is it a stretch for me to claim that as motive?
Then again, victims of abuse, particularly by someone they admired can take years to accept what happened to them. Maybe that’s what we’re seeing with Carter.
I wonder if Macaulay Culkin has anything he wants to add.
