Wade Robson

I Don't Need MJ Estate

to Prove Molestation in Court

5/15/2013 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0515_wade_robson_mj_getty_tmzWade Robson WILL have his day in court in his attempt to prove he was molested by Michael Jackson ... even if he's shut down by the Michael Jackson Estate.

TMZ has learned ... Robson has filed a civil lawsuit in L.A. County Superior Court ... and it has nothing to do with his creditor's claim against the Estate. We broke the story ... Robson belatedly filed his creditor's claim, alleging MJ molested him between the ages of 7 and 14.

Robson may get shut down by the probate judge because he waited too long to file his claim.  But the civil lawsuit we found will NOT go away that easily.

The allegations in the civil lawsuit are sealed, but TMZ has obtained the face page of the complaint, which shows Robson is suing DOE 1, an individual, DOE 2, a California corporation, and DOE 3, a California corporation.  As for who these anonymous DOES are ... TMZ has done some digging, and it's clear.  Robson is targeting MJJ Productions -- Michael's record label (owned by Sony) which hired Wade when he was 11 -- and MJJ Ventures ... which produced Michael's music videos.
The two corporations may have been involved in bringing Wade to the U.S. from his home in Australia, and it's clear Wade will argue they had some responsibility for protecting him -- kind of like the relationship between priests who molest and the Catholic Church.

As for the individual DOES (Wade names 50 DOES) ... it's very clear from our research that Robson is targeting the two executors of the MJ Estate -- John Branca and John McClain.

Short story -- even if Wade loses in probate court, he can probably have his day in civil court and put Michael Jackson and allegations of molestation before a jury.

This guy is going to have major evidence to support his claims. There's no way anyone would tell him he has ANY CHANCE IN HELL to file a lawsuit against MJ, now deceased, unless he has some huge bombshells waiting to drop. I can't wait for MJ fans to finally have the truth smack them in the face. A man can be a musical genius and a monster in his personal life at the same time.

Oh, shocking, a civil lawsuit. But he's not in it for the money. Sure, right. Just another broke loser trying to cash in.

It's called REPRESSED MEMORIES. ANY sympathy for the potential abusee? Michael was abused himself! Molesters are almost always former abuse victims themselves. Same deal with Casey Anthony, also ABUSED/MOLESTED. Go back to opening statement and psych notes and police interviews. Her family was SHADY! It happens! Let's go back to the days, innocent until PROVEN guilty. And DON'T rely on the media for ANY truth. Media is the puppet/mouthpiece of the corrupt powers that be and have LITERALLY BRAINWASHED people, just like the young lady said yesterday.

Everyone knows MJ was a weirdo drug addict boy molester. Maybe this is the court case that will finally erase all doubt.

How can he argue that MJ's people were suppose to protect him when he continued to visit neverland well into adulthood?

I am saddened that people fail to see that the hottest Jackson of all is Katherine. I would so love to chow down on her money grubbing grub.

For the record, Michael is 100% innocent of any allegations. There were no "photos of naked boys" found anywhere in his house, save for a SINGLE BOOK found in his library that detailed anatomy. It showed one naked boy, and that's all. Each of the so-called witnesses who saw Michael committing the crimes were people who each had a personal vendetta against him - several of them were fired from Neverland for stealing Michael's personal property. There is absolutely no evidence that Michael committed any crime in either of the accusations (1993 and 2003).

And no, I'm not another one of those crazy Michael Jackson fans who will support him through anything and everything. I am simply a man who studied the case, viewed the FBI files and knows almost everything to know about the case. He was a disturbed man, but he was NOT a child molester. I'm sure no one will do so, but I implore anyone who believes Michael IS guilty to visit this website, which accurately details the cases?

Wait a minute, this guy testified under oath in 2005 at the People vs Michael Jackson trial that Michael never did anything inappropriate. Isn't that perjury? So, by admitting now that yes, he was molested, isn't there some consequence? Here's the do***ent in question...

Michael Jackson is getting what he deserves. As a child rapist and drug addict, he hurt many boys and their families.

We can get into how he threatened boys with killing their parents, or how he drugged them so they wouldn't remember everything.

But it looks like the MJ rabid fans are on here to defend him no matter what.

Maybe they can ponder how MJ was a child pornographer with notorious Frederick Marc Schaffel.

If you MJ rabid fans had your way, you would bully and intimidate and threaten every single one of MJ's victims, wouldn't you, you sickos?

This man is so full of it he smells If this really happen then why didn't he tell his parents back when it was happening to him so they wouldn't take him back to Michael's home? Also why in sam hill would he work on the Cirques so'le Show and then make the comments he did about Michael legacy when he was interviewed not to long ago. They were all go comments doesn't make sense to me if he was molested by Michael all those years now does it. This boy needs to get his story straight and get a life. Michael was an Angel on this earth all he ever done Was Good while on this earth and all everyone that the media and others that hated him wanted to do was run him in the ground and ruin him. There is no wonder the man was in such depression I just hope that Michael really knew how much that he was really Loved (L O V E D ) AND ALWAYS WILL BE THIS BOY NEEDS TO UNDERSTAND THAT MICHALE ISN'T HERE TO DEFEND HIMSELF SO GET A LIFE BOY. /ANOTHER THING THE INVESTIGATED MICHAEL AND FOUND NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING ON HIM THAT PROVED THAT HE DONE ANYTHING TO ANY CHILD ON THIS EARTH. AND THE ONES THAT CLAIMED THAT HE DID HURT HIM CAME OUT AFTERWARDS AND ADMITTED THAT THEY LIED SO LEAVE THIS ANGEL TO R I P
