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.

I worked for two years as an investigator with Child Protective Services. I dealt with hundreds of cases, legitimate and false. I have always had some doubts about the Michael Jackson case. Not sure, just had doubts. I'm leaning toward doubt with these claims, as well. I just don't buy it. It rings false somehow. I'm not the investigator on this case, but I didn't much trust those that handled Michael's case either. They seemed to want to Pose for the good and true, rather than actually seek it.

Wade Robson is the most high profile person to accuse Michael Jackson. This is truly stunning news.. He's got a lot to lose in terms of dealing with the MJ groupies who lash out at anyone who exposes him.


Hopefully the psycho MJ fanatics leave him alone.. but you know they won't.. One even made a FAKE interview up involving Jordon Chandler claiming he recanted his sex abuse allegations.. his fans are bullying nutjobs.

its a real shame. Even in death they wont leave MJ alone. This guy, testified he wasnt molested. Now..he want $$ from Estate (not gonna happen), so he change his story for publicity. Ive always said if MJ was a pedo, more kids wouldve come forward. Pedos who abuse kids sexually, also dont have kids of their just doesnt add up. As for the Housekeeper who saw the kid in shower with grown man, why did she wait so long to say something and did she see MJ doing anything in the shower? I know adult males (Fathers) who shower with their young sons. And where are parents of these kids, who allow these suspicious sleepovers? Did they simply close an eye at the time, hoping for fame and fortune?? Please, give it a rest Wade. How can you sue a dead man for child molestation, after all these years he was alive, why not sue earlier?? U must be really FCKD up, leave MJ alone pls...RIP King of POP.

A lot of men won't admit they were molested. Wade would not admit it during the trial because it would not benefit him, now that he can get millions he is willing to tell it.

Men in prison will admit to all kinds of gay stuff during a lawsuit, but no other time.

Unless they changed the statute, someone can claim child abuse for 10 years after their 18th birthday. After that, too bad.

I guess things aren't going well for Wade and this was the only plan he could come up with to make a large sum of money. He'll have a better chance trying his case in the afterlife.

Too late. At this point, it's all about money. Maybe he's telling the truth, and maybe he isn't--but it's too late. And what kind of mother would allow her child to sleep at Michael Jackson's house?
