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.

And the juries' job would be to decide if he is lying to them, or lying before in court when he adamantly denied any abuse? Either way--liar.

'Kind of like the relationship between priests who molest and the Catholic Church."

There was no need to include that.

And this just harms his credibility & makes him look like he just wants money.

Keep Fighting    

I become physically ill when I read the hateful comments being hurled at someone who had his childhood murdered by a pedophile. Three people witnessed Wade molested by MJ and gave statements to police.

MJ collected books by convicted child molesters that are pages and pages of naked boys. In his bedroom, he had a nude Polaroid photo of a little boy he knew named Jonathan Spence. He had four public accusers. He had several opportunities to deny under oath that he was a child molester, and every time he pleaded the 5th. Numerous witnesses saw him molest children. There is so much evidence of his guilt. If he was anyone else in the world, everyone would accept the truth of what he was.

It has official police reports and court docs about MJ.

Good. Keep fighting Wade. Michael Jackson was a sick, twisted pedophile.

Also, if this did happen then he should be suing his mom for letting him go over there,especially after the whole 1993 thing

I think it should go to court so MJ's estate attorneys can slap Wade in the face with his 2005 testimony.

I hope if this really did happen to him then the truth comes out. I find it interesting that when Michael was alive people thought he did these things. But now it's to hard to believe. I'm not in his shoes so I can't judge why he waited. But for a lot of people who have been molested then can't confront the molester until they have passed. Don't be so quick to judge wait for the proof.

Wade Robson that is.
Enough of Extortionist lawsuits! a Law has to be made against bogus money-grubbing fake lawsuits.

I'm curious can Wade prove his innocence by taking a polygraph test?

Since he has the nerve to do this and go after money I think he should be man enough to face Tom Mesereau and also Michael's children who he glowingly talked about spending an afternoon having a bar b que with and see if he can look them straight in the face and say it happened!

Never you mind.    

I'm surprised that TMZ hasn't spoken or looked up the many dancers and others who have worked or met with wade through the years, their facebook's have so much dirt on this guy right now & talk about how they got such bad vibes form this guy while with him, how unpleasant, stuck up and just how not quite right this guy is.

Is he suing his parents too? Didn't they have some responsibility for protecting him -- kind of like the relationship between priests who molest and the Catholic Church. Sure....
