MJ's Lawyer

Wade Robson is a

Money-Grubbing Liar

The lawyer who repped Michael Jackson in the 2005 molestation case is scoffing at Wade Robson's interview on "Today," telling TMZ, "This is a pathetic and an obvious grab for publicity and an attempt to put pressure on the [Michael Jackson] Estate to pay him money."

Tom Mesereau tells us Robson is flat-out lying when he says this is not about money, saying, "Why call yourself a creditor if it's not about money."  TMZ broke the story ... Robson has filed a belated creditor's claim with the MJ Estate.

Mesereau says Robson was grilled by the prosecutor in the 2005 criminal case and was unwavering.  He says it's simply unbelievable that the truth didn't surface when Robson was on the stand.  Mesereau says Robson is an intelligent guy who has volunteered statements in and out of court, defending Michael. 

As for the money ... Mesereau tells us, "Everyone knows this Estate is well over a billion dollars and growing." 

For the record, it's not at a billion bucks yet, but the Estate has made hundreds of millions of dollars and it will probably hit the billion dollar mark.

The real sad thing is if this man was molested and/or raped as a child by MJ his guardians/parents, legal counsel, and he himself gave MJ carte blanche to continue to do so by denying it ever happened. Now he wants money??

In other words it's okay if you lie...


Even preferred.


So long as you're lying for the-home-team.

Once you hire and begin paying an attorney.


You're lining-his/her-pockets...


To build, create a narrative that benefits you,


Geared towards creating doubt.


In the minds of 12 very-confused-jurors.


If you're a "homer" - as Robson was years back.


SUPPORT the narrative.


You can still expect a pay-day and pay-check.


However the price Wade will pay - is public. ridicule.


Which he knew was coming.


Tom's still on the home team.


Thus an interview with him ... is dull/predictable.

Victims of abuse are quite often in denial, and so it's plausible that he was abused, regardless of his testimony during the previous trial, more so given the omnipotence of MJ over his life and career at that time until recently.

"Credibility and motive - credibility and motive - credibility and motive - "


Tom's performing.


Lawyers are some of the best performers on the planet -


I love when they do righteous-indignation.


Moment the press conference/interview's over?


They're back to their average day.


Same with Wade - performing on TODAY.


"You perform your narrative, I'll perform my narrative."


Not interesting to watch - why even film it.

A lawyer should know about money grubbing I guess. This clown is one of the biggest.

MJ's fans are loyal, and wont change their view om MJ. This probably makes him more famous, introducing him to younger people. Everyone against him call us rabid, crazy, delusional etc., but say nothing about how these haters behave, being completely vicious, attacking his looks, creating awful pictures, saying the most awful things about us and MJ. Why cant people let us love him in peace? Why does it bother people so much? We are not stupid, we are not delusional and we are not wrong in loving him.
