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.

TMZ, WHAT THE CRAP IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS!? Blanca Francia's "evidence" was proven to be crap, debunked long ago! A similar situation happened when MJ's body guards were fired from Neverland for stealing. They went on Diane Dimond's show to lie about Michael's "conduct" for $100,000. This is a FACT. Please TMZ, TRY TO HAVE AN IOTA OF INTEGRITY! Try telling the WHOLE story for once! I guess you really can't turn a whore into a housewife.

Isn't there a chance the Jacksons paid him off back in 2005 to lie in court? Honestly, no man would ever want to admit they were sexually assaulted by another man so I don't think he is making this up. Wade had a great career and is talented. Hell he choreographed one of the hottest videos of all time (Britney Spears Slave 4 U). BTW he rumored to be the man Britney Spears cheated on with while she dated Justin Timberlake.

Sorry but your 30 now and if this went on to you were 14 that means when you were 18 this was still fresh in your head.
To wait until someone is dead for 4 years now and you had 8 years prior and were an adult for the period to file charges for 8 years there is zero excuse for you to not.

hope if proven tru this man is charge with perjury for lying numerous times to a judge and jury. This is not excusable and don't give me that nonsense about repressed memories, allegedly it happened for 7 years. Something that happens for 7 years is not easily forgotten or repressed. I don't support MJ character, I believe he did do horrendous things but that's not the point, Wade lied on stand and needs to be charged with a crime. needs to be thrown in jail for this deceit if what he says is tru. I like MJ music but not his character.

All the Jacko defenders just ignore the fact that his maid testified seeing him in the shower with a 9 year old. Explain that one you retards. Grown man in shower with 9 year old boy.

Truth, loyalty, integrity and honesty went out of the window when ''Robsome'' accepted an offer from AEG he couldn’t refuse.
AEG abused MJ when he was alive, with a series of concerts they made sure would never happen. And they won’t stop now.
They have 40 billion reasons to try to sully MJ's legacy.
