Michael Jackson

NEW CHILD MOLESTATION CLAIM

By Wade Robson

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.

It won't work. Michael is dead and can't defend himself. I think it's s***my to try and make money off a dead person. (kind of like his mother and kids).

Give it a rest. You obviously just want money. YOU ALREADY TESTIFIED HE DIDN'T TOUCH YOU YEARS AGO. Not to mention, weren't YOU convicted of sexually assaulting someone a few years ago? Yes, yes you were.

Everyone has to get a piece of the pie...if he really molested you, why did you testify in his defense? You committed perjury and destroyed your own credibility. If he really did do anything to you, that's terrible; but why come out now with it?

I hope the estate hands this guy his ass. Even if it's true why now? And they better turn around and sue his ass for filing a false claim against MJ. This goes to show that people are such whores for fame including this piece of sh*t.

I've always tried to give MJ the benefit of the doubt and believed, to some extent the prior claims were more about money than anything else (esp the one w/the dentist son who was under some mind altering medication when the memories first surfaced) but Wade is a well established choreographer who really "shouldn't" need the money... and he lied under oath is what he's saying. YIKES!
