MJ Molestation Lawyer

AEG Might Be Behind

New Molestation Claims

EXCLUSIVE

Something stinks in Wade Robson's new molestation accusations against Michael Jackson -- so says MJ's famed trial attorney Tom Mesereau, who tells us the smell leads all the way back to AEG ... the company currently being sued by Katherine Jackson.

Tom called in to "TMZ Live" moments ago, claiming the timing of Wade's accusations is extremely suspicious -- considering the legal battle currently raging between Katherine and AEG ... the concert promoters behind MJ's 2009 "This Is It Tour."

Katherine and Michael's children are suing AEG, claiming the company is responsible for MJ's death by negligently hiring Conrad Murray to care for the singer ... and potentially BILLIONS of dollars are at stake.

Mesereau insinuates Wade's accusations are motivated by money ... specifically a payoff from AEG, which is currently on a mission to trash Michael's reputation.

We reached out to AEG for comment -- so far no word back.

I believe it. And let's not forget that Wade Robson PROUDLY participated in the Michael Jackson tribute with Janet Jackson at the 2009 VMA Awards.

Thomas Mesereau is absolutely right. The timing tells it all. AEG is most probably behind this, they have no scruples. But this does not make appear Wade Robson less repulsive, willing to do anything for money. Who knows how much he and his so-called lawyer must have been paid. And this is also and above all greedy unnatural mother Katherine's fault and her desperate hunt for money lawsuit, in which she even dragged Michael Jackson's children, she's another who is willing to do anything for money, not better than AEG and Robson. They are disgusting.

And the judge who admitted the disgusting and set up molestation case, which furthermore has nothing to do with the case, in that equally disgusting trial, is not better than them.

Well Wade is the choreographer for Demi Lovato who has a tour going on right now and AEG. is the concert promoter,,,NO surprise there..
you dont have to be a rocket scientist to realize this guy is being influenced by AEG and money.
Mesereau was saying Wade had defended him in 2005.
He actually has staunchly been defending Mj for twenty years PRAISING the man for being a wonderful kind human being, mentor, and also a great father.

They also said they dont want to call Wade into testify , so that just tells me, they put this cr@p out to the general pubic and no one gets to question him regarding it.
I dont like the Jacksons but AEG must be concerned about those internal emails ..Makes me wonder what else were on the tapes they used for "This Is It':(

Michael Jackson did not molest Wade Robson or anyone else.
Wade Robson is looking for a payday. Robson "repressed memory" is a sign of poor legal advice. Run a credit check on Wade Robson, as the court will likely do, and everyone will see how his "repressed memory", debt and bad credit, fit the same timeline.
Stop trying to work the legal system, and get a job, Wade Robson. The State of California is tired of you, already. .

Thank you, Tom Mesereau. You make an excellent point. I trust you more than anyone in the Jackson camp. You have shown yourself to be a man of integrity and loyalty over and over. And courage. What you have done was the right thing, inspite of the fact that it might not be politically correct or popular. You, alone, give me faith.
