BACKSTREET Boys star Aaron Carter has claimed he had his “own experience” with Michael Jackson after previously rejecting allegations in the bombshell doc Leaving Neverland.
The 31-year-old singer previously said the film’s accusers were out for cash — but now he has admitted he “was a little aggressive when I talked about it first”.
Carter, who was pals with Jacko as a teenage boy and stayed at the singer’s bedroom, initially said he wanted to “punch” Leaving Neverland accuser Wade Robson.
But now, speaking to TMZ, Carter said: “To be honest, after seeing everyone’s story unfold, I was a little aggressive when I talked about it at first.
“I mean, everyone has their own stories and everyone has their own situations so I can’t really take away from that.
“In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I’mma be talking about that in the future.”
Carter did not elaborate on this but revealed he was penning a book about his life which will include memories of his friendship with Jackson.

Last month, The Sooner or Later singer blasted Robson after a tweet purporting to be from him implicated Carter had known about what was going on.
Robson’s lawyer says this tweet was from a fake account and that his client has been targeted by hackers since the release of Leaving Neverland.
But Carter hit back, tweeting: “He’s trying to tie my name into this s***
“I’m not that guy. I’m not the one.
“You lucky I got something to lose now, because I would punch you in your face — I would.
“And then maybe I’d ask you, ‘Are you telling the truth?’ But I’d punch you in your face first.”
You lucky I got something to lose now, because I would punch you in your face – I would
Carter also questioned the timing of the pair’s allegations, adding that both men had testified on Jackson’s behalf in the past.
He said: “You’re a grown man, and when Michael Jackson was alive, you are backing him, you are up his a**, you are kissing his a**, you are there to testify for him under oath, and then when he dies, you decide that’s a good time to come out?
“No, what you are doing is, you’re actually stomping on an icon and a legend’s grave — you’re stomping his grave.”
Carter added that Robson and Safechuck should have spoken out during Jackson’s 2005 molestation trial.
He added that his own experiences with the singer when he was around 15 years old supported his view that Jackson hadn’t sexually abused his accusers.
Carter said: “I hung out with Michael Jackson, I stayed at his house, I stayed in his bedroom… It’s hard for me to understand — how am I supposed to understand that when my own personal experience with him was gentle and beautiful and loving and embracing.”
DOUBTING THE ACCUSERS
News of Carter’s intervention comes after some of Jackson’s superfans cited a video of Robson and Safechuck speaking at the Sundance Festival as evidence of their dishonesty.
As the two-part documentary revealed disturbing allegation after disturbing allegation, there are still those who cling to the belief that Jackson was innocent, and look for evidence anywhere of their dishonesty.
The pair were taking questions as part of a stand up at the Sundance Festival when the footage was shot.
The questioner asks: “About your shared family experiences – how has it affected your parents and your siblings and your wives and so forth?
“Have they seen any part of the project, or what is your relationship like with them now, as a result of this thing? After they finally find out your truths.”
The pair make eye contact, and both visibly smile.
While many would see it as a moment of shared embarrassment met with humour, or a shared joke perhaps, Jacko diehards seem determined to see it as a slip of the mask, which exposes the pair as liars.
Safechuck responds that his mother was looking for forgiveness after the film, but he wasn’t able to fully give it to her.
While he speaks, Robson covers his mouth and then answers his family had seen the film individually, and that he was fearful of his mother seeing it.
He also tears up as he talks about how the family will move forward.
After the video of the Q and A was posted on YouTube, one commenter said: “WHO reacts to a serious question like that? they’re laughing and smiling. wasn’t this suppose to be heartbreaking and sad? They’re bad actors.”
Another commented: “100 per cent lying and they know it!”

Another pointed to other body reactions with they deemed signs of lying, including that Robson and Safechuck pulled their collars and rubbed their eyes, and that Robson covered his mouth after smiling.
Many of the comments came from anonymous users with pictures of Jackson as their profiles, and names which related to his famous songs, including KillerThriller and 7moonwalker7.
