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.

...and another thing, if he didn't realize he was being abused, how could he say that MJ threatened him and that "they would both go to jail and their careers would be ruined." BS BS BS!!!!!!

The fans here are truly disgusting.
Even if you believe he is lying, your comments and actions do nothing but inspire other victims of abuse (from anyone) to not come forward because of of the ridicule they will face.

Ok your five min are over, go away and find something else to lie about. People that come out after the person has died is just plain stupid, if he had raped you! you would remember, rape victims do NOT forget, even children remember bad things that happen. Sure you are now just remembering, so tell us how much $$$$$ are you asking the family for>>>>>>>

Is there a time limit for Wade Robson to be prosecuted for lying on the stand? Maybe that's why he waited so long to come out. They say he has money but I think he knows he's going to need money and this may be his last opportunity.

Why has nobody questioned Wade about his high praise for Michael in 2011 and later when he thought he'd be the star in the MJ Cirque du Soleil show? Why would he want to glamorize Michael Jackson by performing as him in a concert? He should've stuck to the repressed memory claim...

Didn't you know anything a person does is just plain adorable and nothing worse if that person was Michael Jackson.


It was all quite innocent because.... uhhhhhhh.... Michael Jackson, our hero.


Anything anyone says negative about Michael Jackson is a lie because..... uhhhhh..... Michael Jackson, our hero.


After all, his name was on the Thriller album and he thought he was Peter Pan.


He was a completely normal adult heterosexual man with no serious psychological, emotional or substance issues. We know this because....... uhhhh....... Michael Jackson, our hero.


Hey Jesus! You know that you are supposed to move a little to the left to make room for Michael.
You better, his mom is already gearing up to sue the Catholic Church for uhhhhh.... $400 billion.

AND Wade Robson has shown himself for what he is. That being a money grubbing, liar, who can't keep his story straight.

If a person is telling the truth, they don't need to keep revising said truth. There should only be ONE version of the truth. I guess somebody forgot to tell Wade.

Is he done his "press tour" yet? I'm tired of his nonsense ...nothing adds up......and WHY is he all over the news NOW if he came to terms with being abused 2 years ago?...pretty damn convenient timing for AEG this coming out in the exact same time of their trial....hmmm >>>>BTW I'm annoyed that some people (tv hosts etc..) are believing what he's saying just simply because he's saying it. I've never met MJ , but I bet I could go on tv tomorrow and claim he abused me when I was a kid...and 75% of people would believe me just because I said so ....because it's Micheal Jackson. ugh
