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.

Wow you have to be really sick to lie on a dead man for MONEY! Hell is dark and it's hot! Burn in it Wade! You said constantly after his death he never touched you, all for media attention and now lying and saying he did all for money! Who would do such a thing. Disgusting!

Please Please stop.Man you had 25 years to get your check for fake abuse.Who gets abused and still ask mommy to drop them off at Neverland?Even the others were never able to prove abuse because I really think Michael thought he was a kid and probably didn't even like anything that adults do.He resented adults because of his childhood so why would he engage to hurt children?I

What's next...people claiming Michael's ghost is molesting them?!....RIP in peace Michael I never believed the accusations when you were alive...no one who has been molested wants money they want justice....the ones that take money, take it as a last resort, if they can't get anything else...not the first thing out their mouths.

Sounds like he's looking for a payday. Pathetic. Doesn't he already make enough money?? Or is he trying to base his fame on being a victim? Wouldn't ever want to hire him. He'd be too big of risk to lie and say someone else molested him or something stupid. A grown man. What a loser.

.. 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.

---------
TMZ should also mention that initially in a deposition Blanca denied all this, then was contacted by Diane Dimond of Hard Copy and accepted 20 grand for a story after she was fired from Neverland for STEALING and LOOKING IN ANOTHER EMPLOYEES PURSE..
Enter civil atty Larry Feldman and she makes these statements
In 2005 back under oath ,, she testified that she had seen something, but then admitted she really didnt , so she ends up denying it again ..
I really dont like it, when only the prosecutors side is given.
poor form TMZ

I wonder how many other people have lied for MJ under oath?? I think it's crazy if he's seeking money after all this time, but I think it's great if he's standing up for all the accusers that ever tried to put a stop to MJ's antics. Go Wade! Ignore the people that try to stop you, wouldn't suprise me if they were molesters themselves trying to protect the right to rape children.

Blanca Francia is a PROVEN LIAR. Robson is just after a quick buck. Michael Jackson molested no children.

Wait a minute. A housekeeper testified she witnessed Jackson in the shower with a 9 year old boy and still he wasn't convicted for this? Shame on the jury. Sick, pathetic people.

sweetcakes that says it wont work, here in the UK a dead person is being sued ( well the damages will come from their estate) because of accusations AFTER they were dead.

MESEREAU: Mr. Robson, did Michael Jackson ever molest you at any time?
ROBSON: Absolutely not.
MESEREAU: Mr. Robson, did Michael Jackson ever touch you in a sexual way?
ROBSON: Never, no.
MESEREAU: Mr. Robson, has Mr. Jackson ever inappropriately touched any part of your body at any time?
ROBSON: No. (p 9097 lines 18-27)

ZONEN: Was your sister there the entire time during that week as well?
ROBSON: Yes.
ZONEN: Was she in that bed with you as well? ROBSON: Yes. (p 9106 lines 17-21) ZONEN: Did you talk with your mother, prior to that first week that you slept with Mr. Jackson with your sister, about the sleeping arrangements at all? ROBSON: Well, yeah, the first day that we got there, to Neverland Ranch -- you know, I think we got there in about the afternoon. We hung out a bit. When it was time to go bed, I asked Michael if I could stay with him in his room. And then Michael and I went to -- mom was staying in a guest room. We went to her room and I asked her. Michael asked her if that was okay. And she said yes. (p 9108 lines 14-24)
Robson testified that he asked Jackson if he could stay in his bedroom because when you have a best friend or a new friend that you found, you always want to stay in the same room with them (p 9109 lines 2-5).

ZONEN: Youre telling us nothing happened; is that right?
ROBSON: Yes.
ZONEN: All right. What youre really telling us is nothing happened while you were awake; isn't that true?
ROBSON: Im telling you that nothing ever happened.
ZONEN: Mr. Robson, when you were asleep, you would'nt have known what had happened, particularly at age seven, would you have? ROBSON: I would think something like that would wake me up. (p 9116 lines 16-27)
ZONEN: Was there ever an occasion where you were on the dance floor with Mr. Jackson and he was showing you a routine and he grabbed your crotch in a manner similar to how he would grab his own crotch while doing those performances? ROBSON: No, thats not true.

ZONEN: That didnt happen?
ROBSON: No. (p 9112 lines 20-28; p 9113 line 1) MESEREAU: Have you ever taken a shower with Mr. Jackson?
ROBSON: No.
MESEREAU: Has anything inappropriate ever happened in any shower with you and Mr. Jackson?
