Kurt Loder:

MJ Was a Child Molester

11/8/2011 9:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Kurt Loder
Kurt Loder
-- the longtime face of "MTV News" -- says he believes Michael Jackson was a child molester.

Loder appeared on the "Jeff and Jeremy in the Morning" radio show this morning  ... when he was asked if he thought MJ's death was a tragedy.

Loder replied, "Its a shame how he grew up ... his childhood was a shame ... there is many sad aspects to his life, ... on the other hand, I think he was a child molester, and that sort of tempers any feelings you might have about him."

When asked why he believed MJ molested kids, Loder claimed he knew about secret payouts to the parents of little boys ... and pointed to MJ's bizarre behavior.

"Having sleepovers with little boys, and you're a 40 year old man??? Uh, NO. You're like a child molester."

Loder continues, "Maybe being a child molester is the product of a pretty terrible childhood he had ... you can see why that might have happened. On the other hand, molesting children is bad."

I'm a fan of Caravaggio's artwork, but I dare say I wouldn't have liked him, in many ways he was a thug, and he committed murder. For the same reasons I think Kurt Loder was right to say it, if only because there seems to be a concerted attempt to paint MJ as a saint. Rewriting history. It doesn't affect that MJ was among the greatest musicians of the 20th Century, but there were payouts and he was a serious drug addict, with serious personal problems.

Child molester yet only TWO out of MILLIONS of children have actually admitted to any wrongdoing on MJ's part. Even when asked to come forward and GUARANTEED anonymity and protection. What does that tell you? What does that tell you when the parents of both kids were feeding their children their lines - especially with such a huge payday looming? What does that tell you when a PARENT takes a cash payout to drop a case in which their child was *supposedly* violated? What does that tell you when the kid who said he had repeated oral sex with MJ was able to identify the vitiligo markings on his genitals (sorry but scars and discolorations will tend to make an impression on a child). Those of you commenting on here have you actually heard/read anything regarding the evidence that wasn't printed on TMZ or other blog sites? No, you haven't. MJ was not a saint, he made mistakes, many of them. But people will always latch to his name to save their own irrelevant a$$'s a shame when you need to latch on to another's success to further yourself - how about working on your own accomplishments?

Michael Jackson killed himself over the guilt of being a child molester.

Its unbelievable and mind boggling how people defend MJ. If MJ was the creepy dude from next door, im positive no one would be defending him and he would def be a registered sex offender.
Kurt Loder is the only one with balls enough to say it to the public. All the other MJ ball sucking celebrities make me sick.

MJ's victims live in hiding bcoz of nutcase fans    

Hey, guess what...

-Michael Jackson was thrice accused of child molestation (Chandler, Francia, Arvizo)

-Michael Jackson settled his 1st case for $25 million after a 13-yr-old boy accurately drew a detailed description of his genitals...including marks that can only be seen during an erection.

-Michael Jackson had an alarm system for his bedroom that would go off when someone was approaching.

-Michael Jackson had a 2nd hidden bedroom within his main bedroom.

-Three different types of semen were found on Michael Jackson's mattress--one belonged to him, and the two others belonged to different males. A fourth sample of semen was found in Michael's bedsheets, and a fifth on a size small pair of underwear stored in a bag with Michael's own soiled underwear. No female DNA was detected.

-During the raid, police discovered that Michael Jackson had multiple books of nude children including "Boys Will be Boys", which is an extremely explicit book of young boys in erotic poses (this was locked in a filing cabinet in his room)

-Michael Jackson owned a nude photo of his pubescent friend Jonathan Spence...a boy he shared his bed with for years.

Anyone who still doesn't realize that he was a child predator is an idiot.

No one knows what exactly happened---. But I will say this, it is very odd that the "child" that was supposedly molested later recanted their story and the parent committed suicide.

Dead on? Are you frucking kidding me? Clearly Michael was hounded by money hungry parents who exploited their children to squeeze money out of Michael. Sure, Michael was stupid and naive in allowing himself to be so vulnerable to these accusations but I imagine most people see the obvious - the accusers were after money.

You know what's funny? You can't type "cirkumstances" (spelled correctly) because the TMZ censors will make it look like "cir****tance" -- which only MAGNIFIES the "see-you-em". Who wants magnified cee-you-em? I know I don't. All those little squigglies chasing each other around....

Oh yeah. Um... MJ was acquitted of those silly charges, ****Loder.

This is great. All the twisted supporters frantically masturbating trying to shore up their delusions, taking an occasional break to post a wailing comment. I love the smell of stupid in the morning.

See, when he says secret payouts, I don't get the impression that he is referring to those cases that were taken to court or out in public.

I don't know if it happened or not, but I do believe that people like Kurt and Harvey are privy to information that would curl hair if it ever came out.

Something is wrong with a society where people mourn the death of a pedophile. Give Murrey a medal, not jail.

Kurt Loder, you need to read the trial transcript along with Aphrodite Jones' book and learn the TRUTH as do all of the MJ naysayers. Just one of many examples: the family that brought charges in 2005? The mom was committing welfare fraud by funneling checks into a secret account. She brought a false sexual harassment claim again JC Penney, in which her children lied there also. They lived in a beautiful home but kept a shabby, cramped apartment to show people in order to gain sympathy. They claimed that they needed money for the boy's cancer treatments, yet they were all covered by insurance. Jay Leno testified that the boy asked him for money over the phone, and he could hear the boy being coached in the background. This family made a LOT of money off celebrities and found the perfect mark in MJ because he was kind and compassionate. He paid for EVERYTHING for this kid. I was on a cruise earlier this year with Boyz II Men, who told us that they were at Michael's house the day the boy and his family were there, arms loaded down with shopping bags and presents...all paid for by Michael. They said they knew instantly what the MO was here. They also said MJ would have never done anything to a child, ever. Get real, people, and wake up. PEOPLE LIE FOR MONEY. And as far as the first case goes, Michael was advised by legal counsel to pay off that kid just to get the thing over with. They were after money, too. Now that boy's father committed suicide. I guess money doesn't fix everything, especially a guilty conscience. Do you homework! Check the facts! Quit standing in judgment of someone without knowing the full story. I'm so SICK of this!! If you think there weren't people around MJ trying to bring him down, you're NAIVE. Don't you think by now if these awful things about Michael were true, there would be people coming out of the woodwork? The few that did have all been proven false. This world has made us jaded to the point that anytime we see a man with a child, we automatically assume he's a pedophile. Michael was a good man with a generous and giving heart. Stop dragging his name through the mud.
