Michael Jackson

NEW CHILD MOLESTATION CLAIM

By Wade Robson

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

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.

Notice he never asked for apology from the Jackson family but only to be compensated.

If this is true, why does wade need restitution in the form of money?

Strange. Also note it's not always the easiest thing for a witness/victim to plead against a mentor who has done so much good for your own life, it is easy to feel guilty and not know what to do. This man was who wade looked up to since he was a young boy.

In words, assuming MJ was indeed guilty of the charges from 2005, this guy helped him go free? And now, after he admittedly helped MJ go free by lying in court, we're supposed to believe him? Sorry, no. He had his chance, not only to speak his mind, but to help put an accused molester in jail. If he is now telling the truth, I don't feel sorry for him. There's no excuse for lying on the stand when other people are trying to get justice.

If he is making it up he's worse then the s*** of the Earth, but if you think about it maybe he stayed quiet because he felt threatened when Michael Jackson was alive, look at what happened in England with the Jimmy Saville case all these victims are popping up years after his death...but it still seems suspicious especially with the court case on at the moment

Washed up choregrapher that probably burned through his money. He is the one Britney sexed behind Justin's back. Probably damaged his rep.
He already testified, MJ didn't touch him. He is not credible.

His 15 minute of fame was over. Now he's trying to get on the spotlight. He's wasting his time. At the end, the estate should make him pay off their fees and press charge against him for filling faults charge

Love of money is the root of all evil. How do people like him sleep at night? Notice how it says he's demanding money from MJ's estate. Clear giveaway that he did it for money. MJ will never get peace not even in death...ugh I just want to cry right now. If that's the case, Wade he lied under oath in 2005 and should go to jail just like LIL KIm did for lying in court, I bet you he'll change his story real quick.
