MJ's Mom -- My Son Was NO Child Molester!!!!!

Katherine Jackson is still ADAMANT her son never molested any children ... including MJ's 1993 accuser -- and insists MJ only paid the kid off because his lawyers gave him bad advice.

Katherine appeared on "Today" this morning ... where Matt Lauer asked if there was anything she wanted to clear up about her son's life.

Katherine responded, "As far as Michael being a child molester ... that's the biggest lie ever been told."

MJ's mom said she read an article after MJ died -- in which the 1993 accuser allegedly admitted he made up the story against Michael.

When Lauer asked why MJ forked over a settlement with the boy ... Katherine said, "His lawyers told him he should just pay the money .. they thought that just paying the money and shut the people up would be the right thing to do."

Katherine said she asked MJ why he made the move -- and MJ told

her, "I didn't want to do it either mother, I wanted to fight it because I knew it wasn't the truth."

Macaulay Culkin: Charges 'Absolutely Ridiculous'

By Charles Montaldo, About.com Guide May 11, 2005

Actor Macaulay Culkin of "Home Alone" fame became the latest in a string of defense witnesses in the Michael Jackson child molestation trial to testify that they never saw the singer act inappropriately with young boys. Culkin denied ever being molested by Jackson.

The child actor, now 24, told the jurors that he believed the charges against Jackson were "absolutely ridiculous. I've never seen him do anything improper with anybody," he said.

Under cross-examination, Culkin denied that it was possible that Jackson may have molested him when he was asleep in the actor's bed. "I find that unlikely," he said. "I think I'd realize if something like that would happen."

That cross-examination tactic was used with two earlier witnesses who denied ever being molested by Jackson. During the prosecution case, employees at Neverland testified to seeing all of them touched inappropriately by the singer.

I find it odd that the father of the first child killed himself around the time of MJ's death. i do not believe he would hurt a child in that way.

james -- quit using Maureen Orth as a source. The woman didn't check her sources and it is well known she lied and misquoted for her articles. Get someone credible to quote.

YOU TELL 'EM KATHERINE!! I am so sick of the stupid people who still believe something so ridiculous. Anyone who can and takes the time to read can see the truth! People these days just cannot believe that anyone could be as kindhearted, compassionate and kind as Michael Jackson was! Open your eyes people! Michael's name needs to be cleared once and for all, for his family's sake if nothing else!

I really hope the nut jobs on here that think he is innocent don't have children because they would be unfit parents, just like Katherine and the parents of the kids he molested. If you can't see that creep hurt children, you need to be sterilized yourself. There are way too many brain dead people in this world that live in a fantasy world. If more people would wake up, less children would be molested. Go crawl back in your whole and give the world a break from your nonsense!

Who cares what tow haters say the truth is out there:

Michael Jackson's Australian confidant speaks out
Los Angeles
June 27, 2009

Michael Jackson's closest Australian confidant, Wade Robson, has broken his silence about the iconic entertainer's death, revealing the impact Jackson had on his life.

"Michael Jackson changed the world and, more personally, my life forever," Robson said.

"He is the reason I dance, the reason I make music, and one of the main reasons I believe in the pure goodness of human kind."


Jackson was touring Australia in 1987 when during his stop in Brisbane he met Robson who was just five years old.

Jackson was so impressed with Robson's dancing talent he invited the youngster to perform at his Brisbane concert and then helped Robson, his mother Joy and sister Chantal move to the US two years later. Jackson signed Robson to his music label.

Robson, now aged 26 and based in Los Angeles, is one of the world's best known dance choreographers, working with the likes of Britney Spears, NSYNC, Usher and Pink.

He is the winner of two Emmy Awards for choreography and had his own show on MTV, The Wade Robson Project.

Robson also appeared in three of Jackson's music videos, Black or White, Jam and Heal the World.

"He has been a close friend of mine for 20 years," Robson said.

"His music, his movement, his personal words of inspiration and encouragement and his unconditional love will live inside of me forever.

"I will miss him immeasurably, but I know that he is now at peace and enchanting the heavens with a melody and a moonwalk.

"I love you Michael."

Robson's close relationship at a young age with Jackson, and the nights he spent at Jackson's Neverland ranch, did draw controversy and resulted in Robson being called to testify at Jackson's 2005 molestation trial in California

Robson defended Jackson and rejected the allegations against him.

Jackson was eventually acquitted.

The 50-year-old pop icon stopped breathing at his rented Los Angeles mansion on Thursday (Friday WST).

I also read Diana Ross has offical custody of Michael Jackson kids when Katherine either passes or is unable to care for them. So Diana Ross has agreed this month the kids will come live with her when Katherine dies.

Poor Michael she conspiracy story
All that is the fault of the media have never been any evidence of it all
They believed a family of profiteering to it are stealing money that 's the real story
Bizare lot of people do not believe the death of bin Laden and they want proof for Michael they had no need of proof WHY
For me Michael was a human like the others and also a very good person.
Love you Michael
