Aaron Carter:

I NEVER Said

MJ Gave Me Coke!!!

7/1/2011 11:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aaron Carter's rep claims the singer NEVER told an entertainment reporter Michael Jackson gave him cocaine and alcohol when he was 15 years old ... and says the reporter COMPLETELY FABRICATED the story.

The controversy stems from an article that ran in OK! Magazine in Australia, written by international journalist Daphne Barak. In the article, Carter was quoted as saying, "Yes, [MJ] gave me wine. I mean, I could have refused, but I was 15. As for drugs? He gave me cocaine."

But Carter's rep tells TMZ, "Nothing was said that was reported" ... and directed us toward a YouTube video of the interview with Barak ... which seems to back up Aaron's side of the story.

UPDATE: A rep for Barak tells TMZ, "Aaron Carter told Daphne Barak in his lengthy interview in Spain, that Michael Jackson gave him alcohol and cocaine while he was 15. He also said that Michael invited him to sleep in his room, and when Aaron woke up at 5:00 AM, he found Michael on his bed."

So he says he seen other drunk kids at neverland and the rabids are using this video as "proof"?

He clearly answers the question "where any of the other kids drunk?" Aaron answers "yes"

Of the 310 million earned in December 2010,159 has gone toward paying down Jackson's debts,supporting his children and covering funeral and memorial service expenses according to court do***ents.Branca and the other co-executors have also renegotiated and restructured existing financing arrangements and sought out new deals to generate more income.

To tell the truth, dearest Aaron doesn't seem quite sound and sober to me. What a stammering. And what a gruesome singing. If you didn't know better you could think it's a parody. Good grief...

help this young woman    

It wasn't Michael Jackson who gave him all that cocaine and vodka - it was Lindsay LOHAN. C'mon people - it's not "Rockette science".

Michael's song "Money" would be appropriate here.

I know this is going to bring out the sicko haters as any story about MJ does -- but the fact remains that at least TMZ did the right thing and brought this lie to light and posted this story which needed to be posted. They did not post the original story so for that I give them credit!

IMO TMZ did not post the original story because just about every other news outlet already had.


A-hole Carter has known about the contents of the Australian OK magazine article for weeks now. He has been questioned about it thousands of times but remained silent untill it went viral in the U.S.


Chalk him up to being just another leech trying to gain money and fame on Michael's back.

That has never stopped TMZ from posting a Michael Jackson story -- just because it's reported everywhere else. I think they were cautious in reporting it b/c it came from OK and Daphne Barack. I'm just glad to see they posted this story about it being a lie.
