Aaron Carter is continuing to open up about his experiences with Michael Jackson — including an incident that he described as slightly inappropriate.
The 31-year-old former child star has talked in the past about what it was like to have the late King of Pop as a sort of mentor figure to him, but in a new interview made public this week, he suggested that Jackson, on at least one occasion, was somewhat inappropriate with him.
Carter will be appearing on the upcoming season of “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition,” and in interview footage obtained by PEOPLE, he can be heard briefly discussing his experiences with Jackson.
“Michael was a really good guy, OK? As far as I know, a really good guy,” he said. “He never did anything that was inappropriate, except for one time. There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate.”
Carter did not elaborate on the incident, according to the outlet. But it’s not his first time suggesting that he’s had less-than-favorable experiences with Jackson. Just last month, Carter suggested that he’s been planning to “tell [his] truth,” as far as Jackson is concerned.
“In regards to that situation, I actually have my own experience that happened with Michael, so I’m gonna be talking about in the future,” he said.
Jackson has come under intense scrutiny following the release of HBO’s “Finding Neverland,” a two-part documentary that tells the story of two men who claim that Jackson molested them as children. Jackson was acquitted of child molestation charges in 2005 and maintained his innocence until his death in 2009.
In recent months, Jackson’s loved ones have feverishly denied the claims laid out in the film, and a number of celebrities have spoken out in support of Jackson — including Carter, who suggested that he’d like to punch Wade Robson, one of Jackson’s accusers, in the face.
Carter later seemed to have a change of heart, admitting that he’d initially been “aggressive” when discussing Jackson’s accusers and stating that “everyone has their own stories.”
During that same interview, Carter also delivered a message to Jackson’s family, telling TMZ, “Just stay strong. I love you guys. And even if I say something that you don’t like, it’s still my truth and you’re just gonna have to accept it.”
