Wade Robson

'Michael Jackson Was a Monster'

And Sexual Abuser

5/8/2013 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0507-wade-robson-tmz-michael-jacksonThe lawyer for famed choreographer Wade Robson tells TMZ, Michael Jackson was a "monster" who sexually abused Wade for seven years as a child ... and threatened him if he ever went public.

Robson's lawyer, Henry Gradstein, tells TMZ, "Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, he [Wade] collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child."

Robson spent many weekends with Jackson at Neverland Ranch and his other homes in L.A. and Vegas between ages 7 and 14.

Gradstein goes on ... "He [Wade] lived with the brain washing by a sexual predator until the burden of it all crushed him."

Gradstein says Michael would tell Wade, "If anyone ever finds out about what we did we will go to jail for the rest of our lives" and “our lives will be ruined forever.”  

Gradstein tells us the threats worked, and Wade kept his mouth shut, adding, "This kind of intimidation of a child by a sexual predator is tragically characteristic and effective, keeping them quiet about the abuse - often for a lifetime."

Wade was steadfast for years that MJ did NOT molest him and indeed became Jackson's star witness at his 2005 molestation trial, adamantly denying any untoward conduct.

The lawyer says, "Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it."

TMZ broke the story ... 30-year-old Robson has filed a creditor's claim against MJ's estate alleging the singer molested him as a child and asking for damages. Sources tell us ... Wade is claiming the reason he didn't file the claim on time is because he repressed the memories of the abuse.

Gradstein says they have not asked for any specific amount of money in their legal docs, although that's clearly the point of filing a creditor's claim.  He then trashes what he calls "the Jackson money machine" which he says is "at it once again to keep the truth from coming out."  But he says, "This time it won't work."

Stay strong wade only the morons think you are lying. It takes a string man to step forward against a monster. Dont mind the wacko rabbids. Here are a few links they love to ignore. Heres the real reason he settled so fast. Not that BS story that he was forced to give them 22 million dollars lol

Jodan describes MJ Penis and his defense team wants to settle after pictures are taken because they know if its a match its OVER. But only a person with access to both records would truly know. Not me not some freak who thinks MJ walked on water.

And here is that person, A person with access to all sealed records from the case. And he claims it was a match.

Now who do you believe this guy or some ******* behind his computer? Yeah I will take that guy all day.

If I was able to get all the evidence I could say no he is just looking for money however I have been raped more times than I will publically announce and I know how deep it hurts to hear people say I am lieing n I am not. That said if he was hurt no amount of money can make it better. No amount of ratings makes it go away or makes it better. So I am not gonna say he is lieing. BellaRayne

I not believe him. He do all for money. After Michaels Jacksons death he gave interviews, how sad he is, how much he love Michael and so on. Why? If he were really abuse of MJ, he would never do MJ-Events, speak so nice about him after his death and he said, that he had still contact all the years to Michael. And now he tell such a bull**** because he need money and is not famous enough. Wow good job Wade. You lie for money.

Some Interesting facts: Wade stated he was abused for 7 years, from age 7 till 14. This time would span 87/88 to 94/95. So, Michael just went through hell but kept molesting Wade. Also- guess Lisa didn't notice the kid MJ made out with all this time.

Wade said, MJ threatened him: cool, molesters do that. BUT: he had PRIME oportunity to tell the truth (if it was true) ON THE STAND, under oat... With his long time molester sitting there, rather helpless. And yet, he did not. Is he saying he perjured himself?

Next: not only did MJ threaten Wayne in life, he obviously continued to do so in death. As Wade was at the memorial, did several tributes, even has a page in the Opus, and is on camera defending his molester.

Finally: Wade tries to escape the curse of his molester but WANTING TO WORK on Immortal and ONE, where I'm sure the music of his tormentor wouldn't trigger him at all ( insert sarcasm) ...but gets passed over both times for Jamie King.

His dance studio goes bankrupt...and only THEN does he break down from the weight of his memories. So, what does poor victimized Wade do? Does he go public to tell his story just for the sake of it? Does he write a book to donate the proceeds to victims of abuse? NOOOO! He petitions the estate for MONEY.

Oh, and just in time before some legal time line to file expires. Oh, and there happen to be a trial going on and this may benefit his former employer to reduce damages.

Yeah...very credible!

What ticks me off is not only that pisses on the grave of the person who helped him, moved his family from Australia to help him make it as a, he also craps on every real survivor of childhood sexual abuse with his bull**** story.

Look who Wade spent years of his life with?

I wonder why he learned to lie. He protected Jackson by keeping Jackson's drug abuse a secret. He pretended Jackson didn't neglect his own kids when he spent hours unconscious with a bunch of drugs injected in him.

Wade also had his Jackson-protecting parents. They brainwashed him to believe that Jackson & his employees could babysit him when they neglected their own son. Jackson was so drugged up, when he prepared for concerts, no wonder the boys loved to be with him. No one could tell them to be responsible & honest.

Jackson didn't even care when Gavin Arviso broke into his wine cellar & verbally taunted a Neverland employee. Then, it was too late to get rid of another boy before he accused him of abuse.
Jackson & the Jackson family repeatedly said nothing was wrong with the "innocent boys" after he got in preventable trouble again (10 years after the Chandler mess).
Jackson was clearly in denial that he didn't understand how awful & stupid children could be. He wanted to visit 2 murderers in a child detention center because he believed the boys were able to be good citizens after release from prison.

Why would it be surprising that Wade became greedy?

Uh oh i am screwed    

I have never really been a fan of MJ but how on earth can you sue a dead person? He is not here to defend himself so it is his word against a corpse. This guy is after money plain and simple.

He is basically suing MJ's kids which is really effed up. Pretty sad.

Also, I know I would never go around imitating, dancing, praising, doing tributes & everything else you have done... not to mention denying it (under oath even), if I was molested by a Monster, you now all of a sudden call MJ. Poor liar!Why your soul become so bad, only because of "Money"? Can u look in the mirror in these days?

This u said in a interview in 2009 after Michael passed away. And now u do something bad to him for money? Sad!! Stop to lie!

Lets say the details are irrefutable evidence of a high probability he was molested.
Remember the report by the maid in the same court trial she saw them showering together so benefit of the doubt, he was paid to shut up and lie then now he's not and he's smoked his money and needs more cash except cashbags died.

So lets say the details are there. Lets say he passes a lie test. Lets say there are witnesses like the maid.

IF this dirtbag is telling the truth the only thing that should happen is the settlement he asks for should go to the one he injured by perjuring himself on the stand in the previous case.

By the way there's been several allegations against MJ, there is a very high probability any normal, sane person can see he did molest little boys. Because he's dead no one sees reason or logic?

I think the mother and sister of Wade are really sad now, that they have a money-liar in the family. Remember also the mother and the sister said, nothing happened, and also many other people which were in the trial in 2005. REMEMBER!!!
