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.

Surely Wade must realize how transparent this is, making him look like a golddigger and opportunist with almost no chance at all to get any money. But with this lawsuit surfacing in the middle of the trial I have a feeling there is something else going on. Is someone paying him for accusing MJ?

Blanca Francia LOL Really, the most unreliable witness ever.
Wade must have connections at AEG. MJ was right, those bastards are not to be messed with.

Now that he has become irrelevant and needs cash, he's going to change his story and accuse a dead man. Real classy. I never believed Michael to be innocent, anyone who spends that much time around kids has a few screws loose but I don't believe in attacking him when he's not here to defend himself. Get a job Wade.

Wade if you read this, please let go !

Maybe you were under pressure testifying during the trial 2005, but you did say nothing happended. If anything DID happen, I don't think you and any of the other boys wanted to be the ones who had to sentence MJ for 20 years. He did actually mean a lot to you, and he helped you with your career.

We - the viewers - can't judge you or MJ because we were not at Neverland, but what you are doing now is not right - you are up against a huge massive fan support of MJ and MJ's team of laywers, business supporters, friends and family - and his devoted children.

You won't be able to win this claim - whatever happened between you and MJ. Please move on and focuse on your stunning career, which MJ helped you establish.

Listen to MJ's song: "Whatever happens":

All the best to you :)

It's really inappropriate for an 8 year old to be encouraged to touch his crotch every 5 seconds; and the crotch grabbing was MJ's signature move. Most adults would be disgusted if an adult went around in public gratuitously touching their crotch like MJ did, yet MJ got a pass because he was talented and wealthy. He did so many inappropriate things with young boys, such as slumber parties and showers, yet so many bought into his "innocence" because he was rich, talented and powerful. He not only lived the lifestyle that other child molesters could only dream of, he had scores of fans who defended his questionable behavior.

Do they counter claim him with perjury then?

Anyone who seriously thinks MJ didn't molest boys is in severe denial. Grown men do not shower with and sleep in the same bed as little boys who aren't related to them. Sandusky and MJ both did that and they BOTH molested many boys.

King of poppin boys booty    

Wade chooses to come out with these lies almost 4 years after I transcended this world passing through to the hell which is the TMZ comment sections. Anyway, I wonder if the devilish Tommy Mottola got into his ear. Wade knows our times together were completely innocent. We would pop tents up in the bedroom and I would make warm milk and cookies for us. It was the most loving thing you could do

What a loser he testified in a court of law of Mr Jackson did not molest him . Even if it did happen he deserves nothing for lying and not protecting the other so called victims. What a jerk either way,

I was a pure and innocent man who loved the children.
I would do anything, and I mean anything, to have group showers, nude swimming parties and scary movie night once again with the children.
I really miss that revolving door of "special" 12 year old boys.

He should be paid in fairy dust.

I am the most innocent man you have ever seen; if you're brave enough to stare into my beady eyes and see past Satan, you'll see that I meant no harm to those boys that I have molest-i mean played with, drank jesus juice with and had other pleasures with.
You need to understand that it is normal for a 45 year old man to watch the exorcist, nude, with a 10 year old boy in a darkened bedroom.
Lots and lots of men settle molestation allegations out of court every day. A little bit of cash goes a long way in those situations! Hee hee!

Robson said of Jackson "His heart is so genuine. He has no concept of a normal life."
