UPDATE: Carter’s publicist tells TMZ that Carter never said Jackson gave him cocaine, saying “Nothing was said that was reported.” Interviewer Daphne Barak is standing by the story; there’s been no word from OK! to this point.

The singer and former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant’s claims come in an interview with the Australian edition of OK! magazine. Jackson died two years ago this week, and Carter says that while “I miss Michael,” he also wants to open up about his relationship with Jackson.
“I have spent such incredible times with him. I did things with him that nobody else did,” he says in an excerpt (the full interview isn’t online). “But I was also troubled about what he did to me.”
Specifically, Carter says that Jackson gave him drugs and alcohol.
“He gave me wine,” Carter tells the magazine. “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.”
