Wade Robson

Says He Never Forgot ...

But Denied Specifics at Trial

Wade Robson
just said on TV ... he never forgot what Michael Jackson did to him -- he just didn't know it was wrong until recently ... but Wade's testimony in 2005 suggests if he didn't forget, he might have been lying.

Robson said on "Today" Michael performed sexual acts on him and vice versa when he was a child.

Wade told Matt Lauer on "Today," "I've never forgot one moment of what Michael did to me but I was psychologically and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse."

But we've looked at the trial transcript from the 2005 molestation case, and Wade was asked very specific questions about the physical contact he had with MJ.

Prosecutor Ron Zonen grilled Robson on cross examination and asked very specific questions:

--    Zonen:  Mr. Jackson would periodically kiss you.
--    Robson:  No   
--    Zonen:  Periodically hug you?
--    Robson:  Yes
--    Zonen:  Touch you?
--   Robson:  Hug me.
--   Zonen:  Did he ever kiss your lips
--   Robson:  No
--   Zonen:  On occasions you stayed in bed with Mr. Jackson would you ever cuddle in bed?
--   Robson:  No
--   Zonen: Would you lie next to one another?
--   Robson: No
--   Zonen: Would you touch?
--   Robson:  No

Short story ... Robson says he "never forgot" anything Michael did to him ... he just didn't know it was wrong.  So if he never forgot, did he lie on the stand or is he making it up now?  Fair question.

Wade Robson is being treated like crap! I don't know about every guy that's been sexually abused...but I do know for a fact that (most victims) do not tell, admit, even deal with this kind of abuse even when they are from a 2 horse town....much less being connected to a star who is like the most famous guy on earth. Why would he admit it while Michael was alive? Every victim I know of and including myself never deal publicly or even privately! It is only after the abuser is out of the picture can a victim feel free to speak it! Only then can that person no longer hurt you! I totally believe this guy! I also believe that if you think Michael is innocent then you would have found OJ innocent too! Look at that evidence ....it was all there but haters found him innocent of absolute murder. So when the abuse hits your life and someone's life is ruined remember your pre judgment of other abused victims. And we wonder why victims remain silenced?? Not I!!

Wade should thank MJ for molesting him. He wouldn't have the career he now if it weren't for MJ.

It is far more likely that he is attempting o reap some gains from this now..as a child, he would not have been astute enough to realize their may be some financial reward for this...although, i fully do believe it's always more important to believe the possible victim...let's change channels, and call Maury, do the test, and then get back to us with the results...

Do you think Michael and TM would bring him in as their first (and strongest) defence witness in 2005 if Wade had been subject to molestation for 7 years??! Really?
(Or maybe Michael just suffered from repressed memory? ,-)

If something unsavory and ugly had really happened btw Michael and Wade - and he actually remembered it - don't you think that it would shine through somehow all the times when he talked about Michael??

In response to Kurt: I agree with your post. However, what you wrote concerns victims who have not told anyone and are curently experiencing the abuse. This guy is speaking now. He now knows it was wrong. but, He shows no sign of Disgust nor Hate. Weird! I expected him to be a little more emotional as in 'I ****ING HATE MICHAEL JACKSON.' Emotions are very difficult to control specially for a traumatize person. If you lack emotion, it means you don't feel it. This Wade guy is way to calm. He was even able to smirk! When asked about Jermaine Jackson. This is so serious! Molestation is so serious. It is NOT Business. Drop the lawsuit Wade if your claim is true. I don't believe you.

MJ was a child predator and a great artist. You can choose to admire his musical contributions and hate his crimes. Just because you are a fan you can't change the evil he left behind by denying it. Just like the people exposing his darkness can't change the amazing artist he was.

I know for a fact that persons who have been assaulted as children most often do not report their attacks until they are adults. That is one reason why they have removed the statute of limitations of sexual assault of or on a child in the Florida.

I bet if you look in Wade Robson's bank account you will see a deposit from someone associated with AEG. Now that Katherine Jackson is suing AEG for half a billion dollars, I'm sure AEG would rather pay Wade Robson maybe between 3 and 6 million dollars to discredit Michael, rather than half a billion to Katherine Jackson. They want to shake up Katherine Jackson so she will drop her lawsuit. AEG had told Katherine Jackson earlier that if she did not drop her lawsuit "it would get ugly." Don't you think the timing for this guy to come out and say this is a little suspicious?
