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.

Michael Jackson and accused pedophile, Sylvain Kustyan, highlight the need to apprehend child molestors before they have decades to harm our innocent children. Kustyan has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and 1st Degree Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, AL and France, fled the US when an arrest loomed imminent. Here are links to the official Wanted Poster, and Most Wanted Video etc.: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8J5feU9h9Q

"He was a talented artist, but he was a pedophile. I feel compasion." Wade is still praising MJ. WOW. Does he sound like a victim to you?

He's a liar plain and simple looking for a handout. At 20 years old, or however old he was during the trial you are OLD ENOUGH to know that it was wrong. He either didn't say anything then because he was in MJ's pocket still or simply point it just wasn't true then and it isn't true now. Difference is now MJ can't defend himself and Wade is trying to pry money from his estate. That's disgusting! His comment about repressed memories is stupid, that's not how repressed memories work. A lot of times psychologists make people believe things happened when they didn't-that's why whenever people get therapy they go off the rails and start claiming outrageous things. It's a false memory created by outside influences. He hasn't given one FACT that would make anyone with half a brain believe him. Not ONE!

I don't believe Wade. I want proof and since MJ is dead and can't defend himself all of this is BS. Wade is making the rounds on talk shows now?!? Is this how a "victim" heals? I don't think so. He is in it for the $$.

Is it so hard to believe that he was paid to lie? Why do you think so many kids are still quiet to this day? Their parents were paid to not expose MJ. The kids are now in therapy and or have blocked it out of their memories.

I think most people reading and seeing Wade Robson tell his story now, believe him and they also understand why he would lie in testimony before.

Anyone who attacks him for speaking out on Michael is a delusional fan that needs to move out of their parents basement and and get a boyfriend or a girlfriend. The guy is dead, move on with your pathetic lives...

why does it matter so much if he lied....maybe when he was 10 years old he was AFRAID to tell the truth. This is just cruel. Obviously, if he was being molested, than he was likely traumatized and petrified. Not to mention, perhaps he was coerced into saying what he said at that time...
