Michael Jackson

New Molestation Suit

1/12/2006 3:49 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonTMZ has obtained a lawsuit filed by a man who claims Michael Jackson molested him, gave him drugs, alcohol and forced him to undergo unnecessary cosmetic surgery.

The plaintiff in this bizarre suit, claims Jackson "repeatedly and forcefully" sexually molested him from 1987 (when he was two years old) until, "on or about December 21, 1999," at locations that were "owned, leased or rented by defendants." Other defendants in the case include various divisions of Sony Music (Jackson's label). The plaintiff accuses Sony of conspiring with Jackson and allowing the alleged acts to occur.

The suit claims the molestation includes "Michael Jackson sticking his tongue down plaintiff's throat, masturbating plaintiff, and anally penetrating plaintiff by force."

The suit, filed in Orange County Superior Court, claims the plaintiff, now 20 years old, has suffered "severe mental and emotional distress, anguish, anxiety, fear, discomfort, psychological maladjustment, anger and grief..." The man claims he has undergone medical and psychiatric treatment as a result of the alleged misdeeds.

The plaintiff claims Jackson committed a battery by giving him "drugs and alcohol, subjecting plaintiff to unnecessary cosmetic surgery procedures, striking plaintiff, burning plaintiff, torturing plaintiff, and beating plaintiff..." The lawsuit also claims, "on or about December 21, 1999, Jackson beat his mother." The December 21 date is when all of the alleged misconduct stopped.

Finally, the lawsuit claims Jackson and Sony stole the plaintiff's song ideas and lyrics.

Lisa Mattern, a lawyer for the plaintiff, told TMZ that the boy's father knew Michael Jackson even before his son was born. For a time, the father booked entertainers, including psychics, for parties at Neverland. Mattern says her client's dad would take the boy to Neverland. Eventually, she says, the boy began travelling extensively with Jackson. Mattern says her client has photos to prove he was frequently with the singer. Matern says on December 21, 1999, there was an explosive confrontation between Jackson and her client's mother. She says during that confrontation, Jackson physically attacked the mom.

Jackson was acquitted on criminal charges of child molestation last year. Jackson's lawyer Tom Mesereau told TMZ: "The charges are ridiculous on their face. They will be vigorously defended."

He must have had extensive bills, so that would have been the time to sue and prosecute. If he told a therapist about such hell in his life, I would think they would be required to let legal authorities know. What man with all his faculties would let his son have cosmetic surgery becaus MJJ wanted him to. Until there is more info, I call B.S.

OK, 25th anniversary of BAD is coming, Pepsi deal starts, Immortal tour is the most successful... so the more BS the more media attention for mother f*ckers paid by tabloid media to corrupt anything MJ related...

Its nothing but orchestrated media conspiracy, like it has always been... against Michael Jackson.

BTW, only a degenerated person can sue a dead person with BS like molestation charges.

All self-styled molested people failed..., just born losers.

And TMZ reports... as first..., what a surprise....

When is this attempt to get money from MJ's estate going to stop? All types of people have tried to estort money from MJ when he was alive and there seems to be no letting up even now he is dead. All types of people claim to be married to him, all types claim to be his child, now his bodyguard want to cash in on the money left for blanket. What else are you morons going to try to do to this man. My God the man has been dead now for 3 years, leave him alone. You know one thing, I blame MJ for being too kind and generous, and because he trusted to much that was his downfall, to help those in distress. MJ if you were to come back alive for a second chance I would not help one blasted soul because that was your downfall .

TMZ I am not at all surprise that you have kept up this MJ saga because you know what no one would even know that you existed without mentioning Mj . That is why you thrive in the first place you bunch of hypocritical MJ hatemongers. Dont worry TMZ you MJ bashing days will one day come to a premature end. Remember what goes around comes back around. Be mindful of what happened to "News of the World" - another MJ basher
