Jane Carter, mother of Backstreet Boys star Nick Carter and Aaron Carter was on ‘The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch’ on Tuesday to discuss the troubled family situation happening with her and Aaron following her divorce from Bob Carter. Jane talked about the recent photos in the Enquirer of Aaron smoking what appears to be marijuana and the time Aaron spent the night at Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. The program replays at 1 AM EST. Read on for a partial rough transcript.
Aaron Carter’s rep, Brad Zeifman, called The New York Post the other day to respond to claims from Aaron’s mother Jane in the National Enquirer that the teen pop star was a drug addict. “Aaron Carter is bewildered and saddened by the allegations made by his mother.” Zeifman said. “Aaron emphatically denies having or having ever had a drug problem. Jane Carter is clearly trying to exploit her son’s success in order to promote her book deal and other projects. After severing his management contract with her, his mother continuously attempts to use the media to damage his career and further her own.”

Aaron Carter Was On ‘The Big Idea With Donny Deutsch’
February 17, 2005 – Aaron Carter was on ‘The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch’ on Wednesday (February 16). The 17-year-old talked about his long career at a young age, hanging out with Michael Jackson and Chris Tucker at his house and the conversations he had with Jacko about the child abuse allegations and his believe in Michael’s innocence, “firing” his mother, how she stole money from him (they bleeped out the dollar amount), romances with Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan and breaking Hilary’s heart by cheating on her with her best friend, denied allegations that his brother Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys hit his ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton, and more. In the second part of the interview, Lou Pearlman joined Aaron, who talked about putting together the Backstreet Boys, managing Aaron, and keeping Aaron viable as an artist 5-10 years ahead.
Aaron Carter: Being A Pop Idol Isn’t Easy
February 15, 2005 – Aaron Carter tells The Chicago Sun-Times just wants “every kid in America to realize how hard it is to succeed in music. It looks so easy and sexy and glamorous on TV, but people forget I’ve been doing this for 12 years.” Carter also was excited about his new single, ‘Saturday Night’, which “I wrote all by myself.”
Does anyone know what caused Aaron Carter’s recent controversial comments about his brother in the interview after the Grammys? I thought the brothers were close and got along. I saw many pictures of them together days leading up to the Grammys and all looked well. I think its interesting Aaron would mention the “abuse” 7 months after it happened. Whether or not it happened, wrong or right, it is done and is now over. I think Aaron Carter was entirely out of line to mention such personal things in an interview with a man he didn’t even know. Aaron is known for talking about highly personal family issues that shouldn’t be discussed (His parents divorce, their arrests, etc). I don’t know if the brothers were in a fight and Aaron used the media as revenge but no matter what I think he was out of line. I hope that the boys fix whatever beef they have because their family is already in ruins. If the boys sever ties with each other they won’t have anybody. This is a PERFECT example of money, fame and fortune ruining a family.
Aaron Carter spoke with Roger Friedman of FoxNews.com to insist that Michael Jackson is straight and that nothing inappropriate ever happened between them. Carter also revealed that his brother Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys did hit his ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton. “He hit her,” Aaron told Friedman on Sunday night at the big Grammy celebration party following the awards show, “and he hit me.” Aaron added that while he did complete his G.E.D. for high school, Nick “is a drop-out.” Read more.

Jane said she had told Nick not to leave Aaron unattended with the King of Pop, currently awaiting trial on child molestation charges, and to bring him home early, but the two never returned that night. “It was 3 a.m. I was lying awake in bed, worrying sick, wondering, where the heck are they?” Jane revealed. Later, she reached Nick, only to find he had left Aaron alone at Jackson’s home. “I was furious with him. You should have heard me at 3 o’clock in the morning chewing my oldest son out.
