Aaron Carter: 'Michael Jackson offered me drugs when I was 15'

Former child star Aaron Carter has stunned fans of Michael Jackson by revealing the King of Pop once offered him cocaine - when he was 15.

Carter makes the bombshell claim in a new OK! magazine interview in Australia, admitting he "felt weird" about some of the things he did with the Thriller singer.

Now 23, the I Want Candy singer says, "I never talked about, this is the first time, I do 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... He gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15.

"As for drugs, he gave me cocaine. I felt weird about that and other stuff."

And Carter reveals in the interview his mother grew so concerned about the amount of time her young son spent chatting to Jackson on the phone, she called the police.

And now he understands why his mum was so concerned: "I admired Michael, but his behavior bothered me a lot."
