Wade Robson
's wasting no time hightailing it out of L.A. after alleging Michael Jackson molested him -- he just unloaded his Santa Monica condo -- and is leaving Cali for good.

Wade listed the condo March 21 for $789,000 and closed escrow May 8. And get this -- he scored more than the asking price -- $825,000.

It's not an outlandish leap to think the timing isn't coincidental.  We broke the story this week ... Wade filed a creditor's claim against MJ's estate May 1 ... claiming the King of Pop molested him over a 7-year period when he was a kid.

Sources tell us, Wade, his wife and son plan to lay down roots in the Aloha state ... where his wife grew up.

Check out the condo and all its amenities.  Repressed memories not included.

After see how Jimmy Kimmel made fun of Wade on his show, I can totally understand how he finally came clean, since nobody believed his testimony and were making fun of him anyways. You can just see the pain all over his face. He was so betrayed by somebody he so trusted with his childhood innocence.

Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile OBE KCSG[2] (31 October 1926 – 29 October 2011), known professionally as Jimmy Savile, was an English DJ, television presenter, media personality and charity fundraiser. He hosted the BBC television show Jim'll Fix It, was the first and last presenter of the long-running BBC music chart show Top of the Pops, and raised an estimated £40 million for charities.[3] After his death, hundreds of allegations of child sex abuse and rape became public, leading the police to believe that Savile was a predatory sex offender,[4] and may have been one of Britain's most prolific sexual offenders.[5][6][7][8]
Savile was conscripted to work in the coal mines as a Bevin Boy during the Second World War. He began a career playing records in, and later managing, dance halls. His media career started as a disc jockey at Radio Luxembourg in 1958 and on Tyne Tees Television in 1960..., and he developed a reputation for eccentricity and his flamboyant character. At the BBC, he presented the first edition of Top of the Pops in 1964 and broadcast on BBC Radio 1 from 1968. Between 1975 and 1994 he presented Jim'll Fix It, a popular television programme in which he arranged for the wishes of viewers, mainly children, to come true. During his lifetime, he was noted for fundraising and supporting charities and hospitals, in particular Stoke Mandeville Hospital in Aylesbury, Leeds General Infirmary and Broadmoor Hospital in Berkshire. He was described in The Guardian as a "prodigious philanthropist"[9] and was honoured for his charity work.[10] He was awarded the OBE in 1971 and was knighted in 1990.
In October 2012, almost a year after his death, an ITV do***entary examining claims of sexual abuse against Savile[11] led to broad media coverage and a substantial and rapidly growing body of witness statements and sexual abuse claims, including accusations against public bodies for covering up or failure of duty. Scotland Yard launched a criminal investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by Savile over six decades,[7] describing him as a "predatory sex offender", and later stated that they were pursuing over 400 lines of inquiry based on the testimony of 300 potential victims via fourteen police forces across the UK.[12][13] By late October 2012, the scandal had resulted in inquiries or reviews at the BBC, within the National Health Service, the Crown Prosecution Service, and the Department of Health.[14][15][16] A joint report by the NSPCC and Metropolitan Police, "Giving Victims a Voice", stated that 450 people had made complaints against Savile, with the period of alleged abuse stretching from 1955 to 2009 and the ages of the complainants at the time of the assaults ranging from 8 to 47.[17][18] The suspected victims included 28 children aged under 10, including 10 boys aged as young as 8. A further 63 were girls aged between 13 and 16 and nearly three-quarters of his victims were under 18. Some 214 criminal offences were recorded, with 34 rapes having been reported across 28 police forces.[19]

"I thought he was thinner than he was in the past, but I didn't have any reason to be alarmed," Payne said.
He briefly discussed Jackson missing rehearsals, but has not yet addressed Jackson's appearance in his final days. Payne resumes testifying Tuesday.

----------------

If people who worked with the Pedo King every day before he died, was not alarmed. The rabid fans who followed the Pedo King for 30 plus years said he was not a drug addicted. AEG would have no reason to wonder why they have to watch out for the Pedo King's health, especially when he had a seemingly caring doctor friend looking out for him?

I'll say case dismiss. The Jackson has to paid all court fees and compensate for AEG's time and lawyers fee. In addition, a big fine for the Greedy Jackson Mama for wasting the court time. And the ambulance chasing personal injury lawyers should be disbarred.
BTW, Have you seen Arnie's love child on the young and the restless, or whatever that day time soap is called. He looked like he needs some exercise. NBC, lets sign him up with the Biggest Loser!!!!

The joke is that you don't need a PHD in psychology or a lawyer to see MJ was a pedophile. Even Ray Charles can see that MJ molested Wade, and Ray is not just blind, he is even dead!!!!

Inquisitive Snoop    

What I don't get about this whole situation is, how is he supposed to prove that MJ's alleged molestation was the trigger for his breakdown in the first place. If it was all still repressed up until this long therapy session, then wouldn't the breakdown's initial cause be something else? If it was truly "locked away" for this long, then it shouldn't have affected him until it came to the surface. And I also don't see how it could have taken this long to be triggered. If going through the actual rigorous molestation trial wasn't enough of a reminder of it, then I don't know what is. It kind of seems as if this breakdown screwed up his career and somehow an event that he had ZERO recollection of made it happen, or so he's trying to claim. Another issue with the case is that we can never know what truly happened during these sessions, due to the patient/doctor agreement. If this is truly a memory that he once believed to be perfectly innocent and now believes to be sinister, who is the say which memory if the real one and which one is fabricated? If you put ideas in people's heads, they will sometimes convince themselves that it is the truth, even if the true event happened much differently. For all we know, the Doctor could have been helping him 'taint' his reality of what had occurred back then to now believe this new 'revelation'. If it's true, I do hate that he had to go through it and noone should. But if it's not, I definitely hate it if he's dragging a dead man's name through the mud if he's not truly sure of what really happened.

I suppose it’s because Jimmy Kimmel has a brain between his ears, uses logic, and seeks the truth.
The only person betrayed in this sorry tale of lies and deceit is Michael Jackson.

You got to love the rabid stuperfans....


Michael Jackson had mental issues, especially related to childhood, only when it serves their purpose.


Michael Jackson had issues with drugs, only when it serves their purpose.


Michael Jackson shared his bed and had many relationships with prepubescent boys, only when it serves their purpose.


It was always a conspiracy against Michael Jackson. Everyone has ulterior motives. Prosecutors who were making far less than MJ's team of high paid lawyers, the FBI, past employees and everyone else had personal vendettas against him using baseless allegations, over and over and over again.


Fans ask, why oh why would anyone accuse
- a middle aged "man"
- known for his eccentricities,
- that fits every known profile of a child predator and molester to a "T"
- that has mental issues, many related to a regressed childhood
- that admits sharing his bed with children, mostly prepubescent boys from troubled homes
- that has had many accusations of child abuse formally presented against him?


Why would he be accused of being a child molester?


I mean, he's just a middle-aged man with mental problems, with substance abuse problems, that has been accused of molesting prepubescent boys several times, admits to sharing his bed with troubled boys that he showered with gifts in his amusement park like home when they came to worship their idol. Can't you open your eyes and see it was all quite innocent?

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson appeared "a little loopy" after visits with his longtime dermatologist and was considering using a teleprompter to help him perform some of his songs during his ill-fated comeback concerts, a choreographer who worked one-on-one with the pop superstar told a jury Tuesday.

Travis Payne said he expressed concerns to the director of the "This Is It" shows that Jackson might be misusing prescription medications and was exhibiting troubling signs of insomnia, weight loss and paranoia in his final days.

Some of the behavior occurred after Jackson's visits with dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein, who Payne believed was performing cosmetic treatments on the singer so he would be comfortable performing onstage again.

"Sometimes in rehearsal, Michael would appear just a little loopy," Payne said, adding that the singer appeared to be "assisted or under the influence of something."

Jackson's condition and missed rehearsals led to talk within the last 10 days of Jackson's life that AEG Live LLC, which was promoting "This Is It," might cancel the concert series.

Payne was working for AEG and said he relayed his concerns about Jackson's possible prescription drug use to tour director Kenny Ortega. Jackson was struggling to get into shape for the shows, and Payne said his voice coach suggested using a voice track for fast-paced songs until the singer's stamina improved.

He said Jackson wanted to use a teleprompter during the shows as "extra security," but it was an aid the performer had not used in his two previous tours.

The choreographer testified for AEG, which is being sued by Jackson's mother. Katherine Jackson claims AEG failed to properly investigate Conrad Murray, the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for Jackson's death, and that the concert promoter also missed or ignored signs of Jackson's poor health.

AEG denies it hired Murray and claims Jackson was private about medical treatments and hid the depths of his prescription drug addiction. Jackson died from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol, which Murray was giving him as a sleep aid.

The company also did not hire the dermatologist, Klein.

Klein is listed as a potential witness in the case, but it's unknown whether he will testify. His treatment of Jackson, which included Demerol shots, has been scrutinized both during Murray's 2011 criminal trial and the current civil case.

Under cross examination, Payne acknowledged that some of Jackson's behavior, including grogginess, lethargy, insomnia and occasional paranoia, were possible symptoms of prescription drug abuse. He also said that despite testifying earlier that he worked with Jackson one-on-one five days a week, he couldn't recall how many rehearsals the singer actually attended.

Payne's testimony was similar to two plaintiff's witnesses, dancer Alif Sankey and makeup artist Karen Faye, who testified last week that Jackson was in poor health and paranoid in the weeks before his death and they alerted Ortega about it.

"You could sense that something was wrong, you just didn't know what it was?" plaintiff's attorney Brian Panish asked. Yes, Payne replied.

The choreographer had remained composed throughout most of his testimony, occasionally smiling and politely trying to answer questions. But after several hours of testy exchanges with Panish, his voice quivered and he dabbed his eyes with a tissue.

"I don't have a dog in this race," Payne said at one point. "I'm just trying to have a conversation with you and tell the truth."

Jackson too incoherent to take the stage, choreographer says Michael Jackson

By Corina Knoll

During preparations for his anticipated “This Is It” performances in London, Michael Jackson at times seemed “under the influence of something” during rehearsals and once couldn’t take the stage because he appeared incoherent, the pop singer’s choreographer testified Tuesday.

Travis Payne, who worked with Jackson on his Dangerous and HIStory world tours and was back aboard for the comeback concerts, said Jackson had trouble picking up some of the show’s choreography and requested a teleprompter to help him with lyrics — something the singer had never done before.

Payne said he was aware that Jackson had problems sleeping and chalked up the singer’s sometimes erratic behavior to sleep aids or sedatives from his dermatologist visits.

“You have to understand that one always says hindsight is 20/20,” he said. “In the moment I had no inkling of what, ultimately, what was revealed until Mr. Jackson’s passing.”

Payne also testified that Dr. Conrad Murray lacked a certain authenticity despite being tasked with providing Jackson with whatever he needed to rehearse for his upcoming comeback concert series.

“My understanding was that Dr. Murray was to provide whatever the artist needed as far as nourishment, the ability to rest well, so he could have productive rehearsals,” Payne said.

But something about Murray felt off, Payne said. “He didn’t feel like an official doctor,” he said.

Although Murray is serving jail time for involuntary manslaughter, his role in Jackson’s 2009 death has resurfaced in the wrongful death civil suit the music legend’s mother, Katherine, and three children brought against concert promoter AEG.

In the trial that began more than two weeks ago and is expected to last four months, the Jacksons accuse AEG of negligently hiring and controlling Murray, who administered the fatal dose of propofol to Jackson.

AEG attorneys were allowed to interrupt the plaintiff’s case to accommodate the traveling schedules of a couple of their witnesses, including Payne.

Some of Jackson’s rehearsals were rocky enough that the process frustrated many involved with the show, which AEG considered canceling in mid-June, Payne said. “It was, we’ve got to get this together or the plug may get pulled.”

Still, Payne said Jackson’s performances in the final days of his life were impressive, and it felt “like we were definitely on an upswing.”

“I never doubted Michael because he was the architect of this and he wanted to do it, so part of my responsibility was to help him get there,” Payne said, his voice racked with emotion.

The belief in Jackson’s legacy as a performer coupled with hesitation about his health has been a running theme of the trial. On Tuesday, an email from “This Is It” band director Michael Bearden to Ortega and Payne was shown to the jury.

“MJ is not in shape enough yet to sing this stuff live and dance at the same time," Bearden wrote June 16, 2009, a little more than a week before Jackson's death. "He can use the ballads to sing live and get his stamina back up, once he’s healthy enough and has more strength I have full confidence he can sing the majority of the show live.”

Dismissed as a witness after spending the entire day on the stand, Payne nodded to Katherine Jackson and her daughter Rebbie as he exited the courtroom. “God bless you,” he said.

Later, a group of Jackson fans clapped for the family’s attorneys as they walked down the hallway.

As far as the current trial...


MJ was to "out of it" or otherwise impaired to such a degree he could not perform or fulfill his contracted obligations. That's his fault. He is supposed to be a grown man capable of controlling himself.


AEG wants MJ to perform or in other words, do his job. Of course! If he worked on an assembly line and was failing to do his job, that his supervisor and coworkers expected him to do, I guess it would be everyone else's fault.


Thank you Katherine Jackson for essentially digging up you own son and every bit of dirt with "him".

Does even the most rabid stuperfan think their beloved hero would have been able to pass a background check to work at a day care center?


I doubt it very much, but fans think it is OK for him to constantly have boys sleep with him in his bed.

Debbie Rowe Attempts To Reconcile With Prince Michael Jackson

Posted on May 15, 2013 @ 3:18AM | By radarstaff

Paris, down. Prince, next.

Michael Jackson‘s ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, has reached out to her biological son, 16, in an attempt to reconcile after years of estrangement, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Rowe – who was married to Jackson from 1996 to 1999 – recently invited Prince Michael to join his sister, 15, at her Palmdale, Calif., ranch, about an hour outside Los Angeles.

“Debbie is anxious to spend some quality time with Prince,” a family insider told RadarOnline.com.

“She personally made the invitation to Prince for him to go up to Palmdale at her ranch. The ranch is the perfect place for mother and son because it offers privacy from prying eyes.”

However, “Prince made it known that he isn’t ready to hang out with his biological mother — just yet.”

Said a source: “He is open to the idea, but wants to do it on his terms, which Debbie understands and fully supports.”

The insider added that Prince Michael “just doesn’t feel that he needs a mother figure in his life right now because he has his grandmother and aunt LaToya.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Paris and her mother have bonded over recent weeks — so much so, she told her 83-year-old grandmother Katherine that she plans on spending a large chunk of her summer vacation at the ranch, where Rowe breeds horses.

“She might go to summer school for the first month of vacation, but will be with Debbie on the weekends and plans on being with her mom in July and August,” a source said.

“Paris wants to spend as much time as possible with Debbie and this is the perfect time.”

Rowe gave her pop star husband sole custody of the children in the divorce.
