Wade Robson

I Hope to Inspire OTHER Molestation Victims to Come Forward

Wade Robson says he feels LIBERATED after opening up about the alleged sex abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson on national TV ... and says he hopes he inspires other people to "speak their truth."

Robson had just landed at LAX yesterday after his big tell-all interview with Matt Lauer on the "Today" show -- and said he has no regrets about going public with his MJ accusations.

While Wade's story is under fire -- considering he so vehemently DEFENDED Michael during the 2005 molestation trial -- the dance choreographer says he hopes his decision to come forward will be viewed as inspirational.

"If my coming forward and speaking the truth can help, honestly, one [person] to gain courage to speak their truth and begin the healing process then that would really be more than I could ask."

TMZ broke the story ... Wade is going after the Michael Jackson Estate in court, claiming MJ sexually abused him as a child. Wade said he waited so long to take action because he didn't realize he was being abused until recently.

Why did Wade Robson choose the word HEARTBREAK as his first thought when asked what he felt when he heard the name Michael Jackson?
Why not loathing? betrayal? Revulsion? Anger?

Was he in love with Michael Jackson?

There is an interview from 1999 where Wade Robson talks about his method for succeeding in everything he does. It's pretty informative.

Check it out.

Here is the dictative of what he says.

"visualize it, sort of like trickery your mind if there was job I wanted umm you know say I wanted to be in some music video. I'd sit down and i'd think of things ALMOST LIKE THEY WERE A MEMORY I would PICTURE MYSELF like on the set walking to a trailer in to the catering table...stupd things JUST TO PLACE MYSELF IN THAT SITUATION sort of YOU MAKE IT A REALITY IN YOUR MIND before it happens so then it's not even a question and everytime I really and it's hard to do that all the time stay that focused all the time, you get caught up in things, it gets hard you know...... "

Go back to the Today Show interview and watch him.

He can not even say what happened to him, the interviewer did it it wasn't because he was uncomfortable, nothing at all showed that. His eyes would have wondered if he was uncomfortable, He made a point of staring at the interviewer almost willing him to believe him. People who are being honest do not fixate on the person constantly.

When he spoke about his son, he didn't do it as much, his whole way of talking, expressions... ALL changed.

He put nothing personal in to it. Not feelings.. No emotions. Not even about the 2005 case!

He never used emotions to explain anything and whether they are FALSE MEMORIES or him lying, he would not think about the emotional part because it didn't happen. All he wants is to get this story out.

He could of said "I did not tell the whole truth on the stand because I was scared i would loose my career because Michael told me that we would both go to jail and our careers would be over"

He put NO human experience in to it. He sounded like a living book on Child molestation, saying everything that you can read anywhere.

The media really need to look closely at whatever therapist he's been using. It sounds like a "repressed memory" scam. Under hypnosis, in a very suggestible state, the person is asked leading questions that basically implant false memories. So it's possible this guy actually believes what he's saying, but that doesn't mean it's true. Implanted memories feel the same as real ones. Alternatively, he's part of the scam and faking it entirely since obviously he's after gobs of money.
-
He's been shifting his story as people have been questioning his statements, another red flag. People who were his age at the time of abuse don't forget (the fundamental flaw in the whole repressed memory idea) and he's been an adult for a long time. The current spin that he did actually remember it but didn't recognize it as abuse until very recently is ridiculous. As an adult, he made many statements to the contrary, in public and under oath. That is not typical behavior of people who really were abused as children. They may be reluctant to talk about it for various reasons, but they don't go out of their way to deny it in detail as he has done. Money money money is at the core of all this.

Michael Jackson manager's e-mails found, could be key in AEG trial

Michael Jackson's family is seeking billions in damages, equal to what the pop star might have earned had he lived.


Michael Jackson's family is seeking billions in damages, equal to what the pop star might have earned had he lived.


STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Frank DiLeo's laptop couldn't be found after Jackson's lawyers subpoenaed it
AEG's lawyers represented DiLeo's estate in the fight to stop the subpoena
Another lawyer kept a copy of the manager's e-mail file
Jackson lawyers argue AEG forced Michael Jackson to take DiLeo as his manager

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A cache of e-mails believed lost when Michael Jackson's last manager's laptop disappeared could become key evidence in the wrongful death trial against AEG Live.

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's mother and three children don't know what they'll find in Frank DiLeo's e-mails, but they are hoping it will support their contention that DiLeo was beholden to the concert promoter and not to Jackson.

Jackson changed managers twice in the last three months of his life. In late March 2009, he hired Leonard Rowe -- one of his father's friends -- to replace Tohme Tohme, the manager who initially negotiated the deal with AEG for his "This Is It" tour.

Jackson lawyers argue that AEG Live forced Jackson to take DiLeo, who had worked for him off and on for decades, as his manager in May 2009 because they did not want to work with Rowe.

Their contention is part of their larger argument that AEG Live executives were liable for Jackson's death because they hired, retained or supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

AEG counters that it was Jackson who chose and hired Murray, not them. AEG lawyers argue that Jackson was responsible for his own death and that drug addiction led to his bad decisions.

The coroner ruled his death, which came near the end of preparations for a series of comeback concerts, was caused by an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol that Murray was using to treat Jackson's insomnia.

AEG Live contends its executives had no way of knowing the doctor was using propofol in the privacy of Jackson's bedroom.

The Jacksons are seeking billions of dollars in damages, equal to what Michael Jackson might have earned if he had not died on June 25, 2009. The Los Angeles trial began three weeks ago and is expected to continue into July.

The lawsuit contends AEG Live ignored warning signs about Jackson's health in his last weeks, and instead of getting him help they pressured Jackson and Murray to have him at rehearsals. DiLeo would have been part of that pressure, they contend.

"Get him a bucket of chicken," DiLeo said on June 19, 2009, in reply to concerns about Jackson's weight loss, makeup artist Karen Faye testified last week. "It was such a cold response, it broke my heart," Faye said through tears.

The next day -- June 20, 2009 -- DiLeo left a voice mail on Murray's cell phone. "I'm sure you're aware he had an episode last night. He's sick. Today's Saturday. Tomorrow, I'm on my way back. I'm not going to continue my trip. I think you need to get a blood test on him. We got to see what he's doing?"

DiLeo's e-mails were recovered after what the judge called "a lot of red tape and kind of cloudiness," that included the AEG's lawyers also representing the estate of DiLeo, who died in 2011, in fighting the Jacksons' subpoena for them.

"Because (DiLeo's widow) didn't have litigation counsel, we're representing her for the limited purposes of responding to that subpoena," AEG's lead lawyer, Marvin Putnam, told the judge.

Soon after an Ohio court ordered DiLeo's estate to give his laptop and e-mails to the Jackson lawyers, the AEG lawyers -- in their other capacity representing the DiLeo estate -- reported that they could not locate the computer or e-mails.

Jackson lawyers, however, learned that the DiLeo estate's previous lawyer -- Pennsylvania lawyer David Regoli -- kept a copy of the e-mail files. For the past several weeks, however, the AEG lawyers argued he had no authority to provide them to the Jacksons' lawyers for use in the case against AEG.

But in a phone call to the court this week, Regoli said he advised DiLeo's widow, Linda DiLeo, that "in my opinion, it was a conflict" for AEG's lawyers -- from the Los Angeles firm O'Melveny and Myers -- to represent her in the matter.

"She said that she never signed anything with O'Melveny and Myers to authorize them to represent her, and as of this moment they are not representing her anymore," Regoli said.

Linda DiLeo then rehired Regoli, which allows him to send the e-mails on to the Jacksons -- after removing any that are personal or not relevant to the case.

"I think I can give the court my assurances that I'll go through the do***ents that I have and I'll go through the e-mails, and anything that is related to the subpoena, I would obviously turn over," Regoli said.

As for the missing laptop, there was a simple explanation. Linda DiLeo "had told me her daughter had given it to a friend who needed a computer," Regoli said. "It wasn't a very new computer."

While the Jackson lawyers wanted to explore how AEG's lawyers came to represent the DiLeo estate in Ohio, the judge declined exploring the matter.

"All we know right now they're not representing her, and that's enough for us," Judge Yvette Palazuelos said.

The trial's fourth week starts Monday morning with AEG's chief counsel, Shawn Trell, on the witness stand. Jackson lawyers are expected to grill him about the contract negotiations with Michael Jackson and Murray.

I believe Wade. It is amazing how many people don't believe him when so many boys have said he molested them. The lead detective in the 1993 molestation case that the boy correctly identified markings on Michael's genitals! You can not explain that away. Learn the facts! Even Kurt Loder from MTV said that he thinks Michael was a child molester.
