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.

This is beyond ridiculous. It's thirsty and malicious. If something DID in fact happen then why wait until the man is dead to speak up. Obviously he's not looking for any justice. This man is pathetic. They probably paid him so hush money around the time those first allegations happened and now he wants more. What a s***bag.

The man is dead and can no longer defend himself. Why not accuse him while he was alive? We all know that he was a pedophile!

Even if this was true - and it probably is knowing MJ - there really isn't any way of proving it now that he is in the ground.

He should he sueing his parents for letting that sick freak near him instead.

It is not normal or acceptable for a grown man to sleep in bed with young boys. It is not acceptable for a grown man to take boys away from their mothers to live with him for years at a time. You have a middle aged black man sleeping in bed with attractive white and Hispanic boys. If it were anyone except Michael Jackson they would have been serving time a long time ago. I guess he did not take drugs either.

Its too late to bring it up now. If it is true then he needs to be sued by the young man who claimed MJ molested him and Wade testified on behalf of MJ. Thats disgusting he needs to be charged for perjury.

It's amazing how your memory clears up when the checks to keep quiet stop coming.
Fans are now outraged and calling him a liar, but not too long ago, they were praising him.

A victim reveling past abuse is pretty common. Look at the Sandusky case. One of the many parallels between the two. The big difference was Jerry didn't have the same amount of money and power.

Could you imagine how it would be to tell the world you were molested by a grown man people loved? You would never have a life again. You would constantly be attacked by your peers and MJ's crazy fans.

To fans everything is so explainable, so innocent and yet if the slightest non-positive thing is said about MJ, it is a lie, a conspiracy.

Fans wanted this trial, and supported the family's greed, well here you go, a bunch of stuff you didn't want to hear and refuse to accept. You asked for it.

This guy testified as a grown man @ micheal Jackson's trial on his behalf and now is claiming that he was molested. Unless I fell off the turnip truck isn't this gonna lead to a perjury charge against mister wade.
