Michael Jackson


By Wade Robson

5/8/2013 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0507-WADE-ROBSON-michael-jacksonMichael Jackson has been posthumously accused of molesting a now-famous choreographer who spent lots of time with the singer at the Neverland Ranch ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ has obtained legal docs ... filed by Wade Robson ... in which he's asking for money from the Michael Jackson Estate for childhood sexual abuse.

Robson -- now 30 years old -- has worked with top names in pop music including Britney Spears, *NSYNC, Usher and P!nk. He has also appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance."

Wade met Michael when he was 5 years old and they developed a friendship that lasted for years.  By the time Wade was 7, he went for sleepovers at Neverland and MJ's homes in L.A. and Vegas.  The sleepovers continued until Wade was 14.

Wade even performed to a Michael Jackson song on "Star Search" when he was 8 years old.

In 2005, Wade testified in MJ's molestation trial and DENIED Michael ever molested him.

Wade's lawyer filed legal docs May 1 asking the judge in the Michael Jackson Estate case to allow him to file a late creditor's claim against the Estate.  In the documents, Wade's lawyer says he submitted a never-before filed complaint "for childhood sexual abuse."

Wade's lawyer has filed the actual complaint under seal -- which means it's not available to the public.  Sources tell TMZ ... the complaint specifically outlines the alleged abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson.

Wade's lawyer also mentions a psychiatrist who treated Wade -- the doctor is a leader in the field of child psychology.

Interestingly ... in the 2005 molestation trial, Jackson's former housekeeper, Blanca Francia, testified she witnessed Jackson in the shower with Wade when the boy was 8 or 9 years old.

If this truly happened, what on earth would getting money out of the estate really do for him? This man has been defending MJ since 1993 and as has been pointed out was involved in several tributes after his death. Furthermore to Lanie - yes the maid sold that story to a tabloid for mo ey but under oath in 1993 she stated she never witnessed MJ doing anything inappropriately. However during the 2005 trial she stated something entirely opposite but there were several people who perjured themselves but Sneddon did absolutely nothing since they were his witnesses.

He was a grown up during the trials , he remained friends with Michael for years, even after the trials, so why would he do this now. It smells of greed , it stinks. I would like to know when he went to see a shrink,why is it sealed he is a grown man, I am going to pray for this man because he knows he is wrong dead wrong. Michael cannot defend himself and all eye witness testimony is invalid because he lied in court. he was 18, he was an adult

EASY way to make some $$$$$$ ! Wade already swore once in court and under oath that NOTHING happened between him and Michael .... Now; that it is YEARS later and Michael Jackson is DEAD .... this guy probably needs some $$$$$ , so time to make an accusation and some $$$$$ .. FREE Publicity along the way ... What a great guy !!

I believe what wade is saying even though i don't know why he didn't admit it during his testimony he probably wasn't ready and it wasn't his choice to testify he was made too and maybe now he feels he was wronged and something needs to be held accountable

There should be a life sentence for folks that try to stimulate their ****ty careers with accusations like this.

I don't understand why people were letting their children sleep over this man's house. Especially when he didn't have any children at the time. I don't care if he was famous, it's still weird to let your 5 year-old befriend a grown man!
