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 know it is a serious accusation, but at the same time making up a molestation claim is an easy way for someone to try to get some money. I think that there should be a reasonable time limit on making this kind of claim. Maybe something like 3-5 years after becoming an adult. Waiting 16 years to say something (12 as an adult) is ridiculous.

If Wade Robson was molested he had a chance to do the right thing and chose not to. How many more children were molested because Wade chose not to come forward?

Wade Robson, dude ... so you lied in 2005? Or are you lying now?? Which is it?? Either way, Bad Form. On one hand you lied and obstructed the justice of another child. On the other, you are lying about a dead man. Coming forward now, when he cannot defend himself. ****ing cold and a punk ass move. WOW!! Dude you are Low! Good luck on the street, you have pissed off a **** load of people.

The timing is too odd. He waited until there is an estate, rather than just debt. He's been an adult for a long time.

Yet when asked in court at the time he said Michael had NOT abused him.
Wade has had nothing but nice things to say about MJ over the years, yet we are supposed to believe this cr*p, now?!
Basically he needs some money & this is the easiest way to get it. I bet he's been trying to get his story straight for years. It's not going to work Wade, you'll be going to jail for this you bloody assehole.
He was your friend. I hope you can live with yourself now.

So he lied under oath? Can he be tried for perjury?

This lawsuit will go nowhere because of his past testimony. But all you people screaming to leave MJ alone are either blind or stupid. MJ was a textbook pedophile who had a freaking child magnet amusement park and slept with boy manikins. They are in his death scene pictures. You are just all star struck and don't give a **** that he screwed boys.

here is some nice things Wade said after MJ died..I ,
He is all over youtube talking about what a wonderful mentor MJ was to him before and after he died..
I can only assume he owes the mob money and had to come up with a way to try and get some LOL

I've wondered about the paternity articles appearing in the daily mail. Is this like a collection of smearing allegations. Why now? Nothing to do with the court case I'm sure.
