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.

“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”.
Creditor's claims are paid to people that are owed money.
In the do***ents, Wade's lawyer says he submitted a never-before filed complaint "for childhood sexual abuse."
Child molestation is a criminal action handled in criminal court which the prosecution (Wade Robson) would have to prove. MJ isn't here to defend himself, therfore it appears Robson is trying to extort the Estate to pay for his psych bills in return for silence on Robson's part i.e., no books, interviews, etc.

while everyone is gasping, have any of you thought about the time line , four years after MJ death ,8 years after Wade testified in the 2005 trial and then the Jackson vs AEG civil trial ,isn,t this convenient for AEG.. Lets not forget AEG said they had some nasty stuff ,could be possible they bought Wade's cooperation
Don't forget who AEG is "Power Mongers"

Lopez Dileo and others are dead

Can ny intelligent rabid fan give me a logical answer to my question here:

Why didn't the greed jacksons sue Vanity Fair if any of what the magazine report was not true. Maybe the greedy jacksons can get a whopping $4000 billions to solve Jermaine Jackson's child support back payment and at the time that their house was up for foreclosure and that they couldn't pay the electricity bills, they would have hit the jet pot!!!!

Blanca Francia, admitted she perjured herself and the courts ordered her to pay Michael Jackson 2million dollars. And she still owes the MJ estate. and I hope they collect.

Is this douche aware that he openly admitted to lying in court back in 2005? I think the lawyers for MJ's estate should file a countersuit for lying under oath (which is a crime, incase this moron didnt know)

This is so sad. Yeah, sad. Man, you had your chance at court and claimed MJ has never touched you in an inappropriate way, made numerous MJ tributes and now that he's dead, you want to sue him? WTF?!? As a victim of rape I can see through your bluff. I would NEVER do a tribute to the person who has raped me and I'm SURE that no one else who has ever been molested would do that! All I have to say is shame on you Wade, SHAME ON YOU!!!
