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.

You haters are retarded for commenting on this article, if you all hate Michael Jackson so much, why are you here. Trying to make yourself feel superior , or what?


We are here to stop people like you harming another innocent child and re-victimizing the victims like Wade. You pedo supporters should remember the faces of these victims next time you hear MJ's music, and feel how creepy it really sounds - a man signing like a little girl in heat, especially that song PYT. Remember what inspired him for those songs, and how he beat it!

Nothing can be more laughable. Don't you remember the man is dead? Would would be jealous of a dead man unless maybe someone who is suicidal.

And Wade Robson will lose his day in civil court.

Nobody is stupid. What Wade Robson is trying to do called "packing his lawsuit". Sue as many people as you can think of, and hope that some of them will settle. But Wade Robson is not a credible plaintiff and they will call his bluff. His bogus case will fail.

You are really not too smart, are you ?:)


I don't proclaim I am smart, but I can tell you that Michael Jackson was a child molester monster, who had no remorse, no moral, no soul, and more stupid than I am because he killed himself with drugs, and guilt! If he could stand up as a man and castrate himself, he might not have felt so guilty that he couldn't sleep!!!!

I cant tell you how many hours I have spent on reading about him before I concluded that he was innocent and a victim. I would never in My life support a Child molester. I support and love Michael Jackson 100%.

This is what you should read instead:

Pedophiles Can Be Anyone:

Pedophiles can be anyone -- old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, non-professional or professional, and of any race. However, pedophiles often demonstrate similar characteristics, but these are merely indicators and it should not be assumed that individuals with these characteristics are pedophiles. But knowledge of these characteristics coupled with questionable behavior can be used as an alert that someone may be a pedophile.
Characteristics of a Pedophile :

Often the pedophile is male and over 30 years of age.
Single or with few friends in his age group.
If married, the relationship is more "companion" based with no sexual relations.
He is often vague about time gaps in employment which may indicate a loss in employment for questionable reasons or possible past incarceration.
Pedophiles Like Child-like Activities:

He is often fascinated with children and child activities appearing to prefer those activities to adult oriented activities.
He will often refer to children in pure or angelic terms using descriptives like innocent, heavenly, divine, pure, and other words that describe children but seem inappropriate and exaggerated.
He has hobbies that are child-like such as collecting popular expensive toys, keeping reptiles or exotic pets, or building plane and car models.
Pedophiles Often Prefer Children Close to Puberty:

Pedophiles often have a specific age of child they target. Some prefer younger children, some older.
Often his environment or a special room will be decorated in child-like decor and will appeal to the age and sex of the child he is trying to entice.
Many pedophiles often prefer children close to puberty who are sexually inexperienced, but curious about sex.
Pedophiles Work Around Children:

The pedophile will often be employed in a position that involves daily contact with children. If not employed, he will put himself in a position to do volunteer work with children, often in a supervisory capacity such as sports coaching, contact sport instruction, unsupervised tutoring or a position where he has the opportunity to spend unsupervised time with a child.
The Target Child:

The pedophile often seeks out shy, handicapped, and withdrawn children, or those who come from troubled homes or under privileged homes. He then showers them with attention, gifts, taunting them with trips to desirable places like amusement parks, zoo's, concerts, the beach and other such places.
Manipulation of the Innocent:

Pedophiles work to master their manipulative skills and often unleash them on troubled children by first becoming their friend, building the the child's self esteem. They may refer to the child as special or mature, appealing to their need to be heard and understood then entice them with adult type activities that are often sexual in content such as x-rated movies or pictures. They offer them alcohol or drugs to hamper their ability to resist activities or recall events that occurred.
Stockholm Syndrome :

It is not unusual for the child to develop feelings for the predator and desire their approval and continued acceptance. They will compromise their innate ability to decipher good and bad behavior, ultimately justifying the criminal's bad behavior out of sympathy and concern for the adults welfare. This is often compared to Stockholm Syndrome - when victims become attached emotionally to their captors.
The Single Parent:

Many times pedophiles will develop a close relationship with a single parent in order to get close to their children. Once inside the home, they have many opportunities to manipulate the children -- using guilt, fear, and love to confuse the child. If the child's parent works, it offers the pedophile the private time needed to abuse the child.
Fighting Back:

Pedophiles work hard at stalking their targets and will patiently work to develop relationships with them. It is not uncommon for them to be developing a long list of potential victims at any one time. Many of them believe that what they are doing is not wrong and that having sex with a child is actually "healthy" for the child.
Almost all pedophiles have a collection of pronography, which they protect at all costs. Many of them also collect "souvenirs" from their victims. They rarely discard either their porn or collections for any reason.

One factor that works against the pedophile is that eventually the children will grow up and recall the events that occurred. Often pedophiles are not brought to justice until such time occurs and victims are angered by being victimized and want to protect other children from the same consequences.

Laws such as Megan's Law - a federal law passed in 1996 that authorizes local law enforcement agencies to notify the public about convicted sex offenders living, working or visiting their communities, have helped expose the pedophile and allows parents to better protect their children.

Very fishy, Haven't we been hearing of a similar case in the care of someone... Oh right yeah, Katherine Vs AEG. Same principles seem to be in this one too,
AEG is being sued because Katherine believes they had an obligation to make sure their client was healthy... and he is suing because he is claiming MJ companies had an obligation to protect him etc.

AEG is most certainly involved in this. Dirty Rat bags!

All the power to AEG, if they are doing this. A tooth for a tooth. I wish AEG would gather all other victims and write a collection of books and let the world see how filthy and sick that pedo king is!!!

To SUNFLOWER----------------------------------- I have not read your essay :O, but you can believe whatever you choose. He does not fit the typical profile of a sexual predator. Please, do some real research for heaven's sake. You can say and do anything, I will not believe it. I have done my homework. you should also, instead of being so ignorant. Anyways, peace!

That's why we have no doubt that rabid MJ fans are retarded.

Certainly your research would have included the porn collection that MJ had in Neverland.
Hmmm, what would he do with those naked boys pictures and an alarm outside of his bedroom while lying there with underage boys whose underwear are lying on the floor???

To my dearest SUNFLOWER--------------------- You are a monkey:-O why do you feel so strongly when it's all negativity you are feeling ? Let it go. I know you believe in what you r saying, but the "molester" is dead, so why do you keep going ? What good does it do? Why dont you take a moment and think about it? Seems like you haven't Done That in a While ... Take care.
