Aaron Carter's representatives have criticized the singer's posthumous memoir which details a bizarre encounter with Michael Jackson.

Before his untimely death, the 34-year-old performer - who was found dead in the bathtub of his California home on November 5 - was allegedly working on an unfinished autobiography titled: Aaron Carter: An Incomplete Story of an Incomplete Life.

In an advanced copy, obtained by The New York Post, the former child star reportedly described for the first time how he stayed over at the late King of Pop's home after a birthday party - only to wake up and find him at the end of his bed.

"Michael and I went into the main house alone and headed to his bedroom area," the 'I Want Candy' singer wrote, according to the outlet. "After a while, I said I was ready for bed. I hadn’t really thought about where I would sleep."

"Obviously, there were tons of rooms in the house. But he pulled out this cot next to his bed that was already made," he continued. "I never asked for the cot, but there it was. I didn’t care. I was tired. He turned out the lights and got in his bed, and we went to sleep."

A couple of hours later something woke him up, Carter wrote, alleging that he found the 'Thriller' hitmaker "at the foot of my cot in his tighty-whitey underwear. I don’t know if he was sleepwalking or what, but he seemed to still be asleep".

"'What the f***!?' I shouted and shook him a little to wake him. 'Go back to your bed!' He just mumbled, 'OK,' then got back into his bed, and we both went back to sleep," he reportedly wrote.

"I never asked him about it, and we never mentioned it. When I woke up in the morning, he was gone from the room," the 'I'm All About You' musician added.

Carter has previously described the 'Smooth Criminal' singer as "a really good guy, as far as I know" and reportedly hinted at the alleged bedroom incident in 2019 during the taping of Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition.

"He never did anything that was inappropriate - except for one time," the singer reportedly said. "There was one thing that he did that was a little bit inappropriate." At the time he did not go into further detail.

In a statement to the The New York Post on Thursday (November 10), the singer's management team slammed the book's content, writing: "This is a time for mourning and reflection, not heartless money grabs and attention seeking."

In addition to this, Hilary Duff also criticized the controversial memoir after it alleged that she lost her virginity at the age of 13 to Carter - whom she dated off and on between the years 2000 and 2003.

An excerpt from the book about those claims was posted online and published in the The New York Post and it read, per the outlet: "Hilary and I lost our virginity to each other at a hotel… in LA."

"I think it was her birthday, maybe her 13th [September 28, 2000], but I don’t remember. Her friends walked in, and we just yelled at them to get out," the passage continued.

In a statement to the Daily Mail, the Lizzie McGuire star called the book a "money grab" and said that it was "really sad" that publishers were "recklessly" publishing it within a week of the star's death.

"It’s really sad that within a week of Aaron’s death, there’s a publisher that seems to be recklessly pushing a book out to capitalize on this tragedy without taking the appropriate time or care to fact-check the validity of his work," Duff responded.

"To water down Aaron’s life story to what seems to be unverified click-bait for profit is disgusting. In no way do I condone shedding any light on what is so obviously an uninformed, heartless, money grab," she added.
