Wade Robson

I Don't Need MJ Estate

to Prove Molestation in Court

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

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.

Again I uege people who support Wade to Support him, now more than ever, facebook.com/waderobsonsupporters.com Some of the MJ fans have called him a liar, backstapper, greedy, ahole, just goes on and on. If you have a child and he or she made accusations against someone is this how you would want him to be treated, I know the silent majority has not spoken, so please speak.....

This is disgusting to say the least. You can't even let Michael rest in peace. First off, Wade participated as a dancer in the tribute skit Janet put together for Michael at the 2009 VMA awards. Second of all, Wade always mentioned Michael as being his idol when he hosted that dance show on MTV a while back. Mr. Robson would even perform dance skits for the audience depicting Michael Jackson's song and dance. I can only speculate that Wade is being paid a large sum of money for whatever reason. Its a damn shame!!!

Did I get this right - Wade is going to accuse a dead man, who cannot defend himself, of molestation?

This does not sit right with me at all. He was a grown man, 22, when he elected to stand on Michael's side in his molestation trial. That was eight years ago. He had lots of time to ponder this, while Michael was still alive. And now, after Michael's tragic death, he wants to sully his memory and cash in?


I don't know how extensive his psychiatrist's involvement is, but when I saw the pics from Wade's condo, (I´m only speculating here), I got a very strong feeling this guy thinks he's not famous and rich enough. Nothing wrong with the place, but there was this atmosphere of dissatisfaction.


Karen Faye on her twitter account called Wade's accusation "clever diversion" (from the AEG trial). But this, and AEG's hostile approach to the notion they were negligent to Michael and treated him with brutality and contempt (which they did, according to their own e-mails), doesn't exactly endear them to me. I've heard enough bull**** about Michael.


Someone should have called an ambulance and those in charge did not. They threatened Michael and he didn't dare canceling or get help at a hospital. He tried to hide in his bathroom, and AEG yelled on the phone to his security to get him out of there. The whole thing is disgusting and heart-breaking. And in the middle of all of that being reveled, this is what Wade has to say about him? I just want Wade to disappear. Move to Hawaii, just disappear, please.

Keep Fighting ...

There was never a paraloide of a boy naked in MJ's house. Child pornography is a federal crime. The FBI investigated Michael for over ten years and the files they released in 2009 show that there was any evidence against Michael.
People who said they saw Michael molesting Wade was convicted for defame Michael in 1994. They testified in 2005 and were completely unmasked by Tom Mesereau also.

Wade was defending Michael to 9 months ago. So what? He defended Michael so far, but is a victim? Give at least one reason for someone defend the person who molested him, if you can? Wade, on a page in the internert, in 2004, expressed his revolt against Tom Sneddon for accusing Michael unfairly . But there will always be idiots like you who buy these lies about has been abused, but have repressed the memory or have been threatened. Who forced Wade to make tribute to Michael after MJ was acquitted? Who forced Wade to defend Michael in a relationship page on the internet? Who forced Wade to keep saying good things about Michae till 2012 august.

Jhonan Spencer has always denied having been abused. Tom Sneddon tried to put Jhonatan as a victim, but not even the so pro-prosecution judge Melville accepted that.

But if there is so much evidence against Michael as you claim because you did not give them to Tom Sneddon in 2005, huh?

Die poisoned with you hatred. Michael is innocent.

Ahhhh America where you can sue a dead man for money and publicity claiming to be molested by a pedophile. The things some people will do for money is sickening. They need laws regarding bogus lawsuits it's a waste of resources and time.

Why can no one grasp the concept that victims of child molestation, much into their adulthood, will never admit what happened to them because of shame. If a molester plays their role properly, the children may even feel as though they willingly let it happen. They develop somewhat of a Stockholm syndrome, and I feel Wade truly loved Michael Jackson and that made it even more difficult for him to come to grips with what really happened. Its very, very common for victims of child molestation to support the people whom touch him, even on trial. There are do***ented cases of children under oath claiming they were never touched, and the molester later, after being found guilty, admit they had harmed those same children.

This is a statement I recieved from a woman who said she was a MJ fan on the faceboo kpage I created, tell me if it does not chill you to the bone

OK...IM GOING TO PLAY DEVILS ADVOCATE HERE. SO MJ FANS DON'T GET UPSET...IM ON YOUR SIDE. LETS SAY THAT MJ DID DO THESE THINGS...AND YES THIS IS BEING ADDRESSED TO YOU ...SUPPORTER OF WADE. WHAT IS THE POINT OF SUING THE MJ ESTATE?! FOR MONEY? WHAT GOOD WILL THAT DO? IF HE DID THESE THINGS....THERE IS A LOT TO LOOK AT HERE..NOT JUSTIFY OR SAYING IT WAS OK BUT A LOT TO LOOK AT. I BELIEVE IF AND THAT IS A HUUUUUGE IF MJ DID THIS I BELIEVE HE WAS FOR SURE MOLESTED HIMSELF ...THINKING THAT IT WAS SOMETHING NORMAL BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT HE EXPERIENCED. THINK ABOUT HIS CHILDHOOD...HE HAD NONE ON SO MANY LEVELS AND IF HE WAS MOLESTED ON TOP OF ALL THAT ...I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT HE MUST OF WENT THROUGH. THINK ABOUT ALL THE DIFFERENT PLACES AND PEOPLE HE HAD BEEN EXPOSED TO AT SUCH A DELICATE YOUNG AGE! HIS FATHER TAKING HIM TO STRIP CLUBS. I BELIEVE THAT MJ WAS TRYING TO HANG ONTO HIS CHILD HOOD AS AN ADULT AS LONG AS HE COULD. WHEN HE HAD HIS KIDS YOU CAN SEE HOW HE MATURED FINALLY INTO A MAN AND ADULT. HE WAS A CHILD IN HIS MIND UNTIL HIS LATE 30s EARLY 40s. WHEN HE WAS A CHILD HE WAS AN ADULT AND WHEN HE WAS AN ADULT HE WAS A CHILD AND HE WANTED TO BE AROUND CHILDREN ....BOYS TO MAKE FRIENDS HE NEVER HAD AND TO EXPERIENCE BOY LIKE FRIENDSHIPS. NOW IF HE DID THESE THINGS SOME PEOPLE ARE CLAIMING...THINK ABOUT THIS.... CHILDREN EXPLORE THIER BODIES WITH THEMSELVES AND YES EVEN WITH EACH OTHER AT A CERTAIN AGE....YES....IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES.....BOYS AND GIRLS DO IT. SO IF MJ THOUGHT IN HIS MIND HE WAS A CHILD AND WAS GOING THROUGH HIS IDEA OF ADOLESCENTS AS AN ADULT IT IS POSSIBLE HIS MIND WAS CONFUSED. THAT ALONG WITH POSSIBLY OF HIM BEING MOLESTED. IM NOT SAYING HE DID THIS IM SAYING IF HE DID MOLEST ANYONE I FEEL IT WAS MUCH MORE COMPLICATED THEN ANY OTHER SITUATION. ANY CHILD MOLESTER I HAVE KNOWN (NOT PERSONALLY BUT KNOWING THE VICTIMS...THEREFORE KNOWING OF THE MOLESTER THROUGH THEM) NEVER ACTED LIKE A CHILDLIKE THEMSELVES. THEY WERE WHAT APPEARED TO BE NORMAL EVERY DAY ADULTS...DOING ADULT THINGS. I DO BELIEVE THAT MJ HAD PROBLEMS FROM ABUSE ...MANY TYPES POSSIBLY...AND JUST BEING FORCED TO GROW UP TOO FAST....TOO MUCH RESPOSIBILTY AT A VERY YOUNG AGE! OUTSIDE OF BEING A FAN ...I FEEL BAD FOR HIM. HE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE EXPECT A LOT FROM HIM.....TO BE STRONG AND NOT SHOW ANY SIGNS OF WEAKNESS.....BETWEEN THAT AND HIS MOTHERS JAHOVAHS FAITH ...I THINK HE DID NOT GET THE RIGHT KIND OF HELP HE NEEDED. I DON'T THINK HE WAS EGOTISTICAL AT ALL TO THE POINT WHERE HE THOUGHT HE COULD GET WHATEVER HE WANTED. I THINK HE HAD ISSUES AND DID NOT USE THE CORRECT TOOLS TO DEAL WITH THEM. HE WAS TOO KIND, HUMBLE AND CARING OF A PERSON TO THINK HE COULD DO WHATEVER HE WANTED. NOW GOING BACK TO SUING. I JUST DON'T GET IT? THERE ARE LOT OF VICTIMS OUT THERE OF SEXUAL ABUSE. I KNOW SOME OF THEM. AND MONEY IS NOT THE ANSWER NOR SOMETHING THEY WENT AFTER. PUTTING THAT PERSON IN JAIL WAS THIER GOAL! AS A VICTIM YOU NEED TO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE AND HEAL. THE FACT THAT MJ IS NO LONGER HERE....IF HE DID THIS...HE CAN'T DO TIME IN JAIL. SO MONEY IS THE SOLUTION? JUST SEEMS TOO COINCIDENTAL TO ME, STILL. WITH ALL THAT SAID. I STILL THINK MJ IS INNOCENT JUST BECAUSE OF THE RESEARCH I DID. AND I DID MY RESEARCH BECAUSE I WAS NOT SURE AT FIRST. BUT AFTER I READ A LOT ...I JUST DON'T THINK HE DID IT. I THINK THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO WANT MONEY. BUT IF IT TURNS OUT HE DID DO IT. I DON'T THINK IT WILL CHANGE MY FEELINGS ABOUT HIM. I HAVE AN IDEA ....IF HE DID ...AND AGAIN A BIG IF.....HE WENT THROUGH HELL HIMSELF. AND I WOULD NOT THINK OF HIM AS SOME MONSTER.....JUST ANOTHER VICTIM. HE'S GONE NOW AND AT THIS POINT IT DOES NOT MATTER BECAUSE HE DID A LOT OF GOOD IN THIS WORLD AS WELL. BUT AGAIN ...I DO NOT THINK HE MOLESTED ANYONE.
