MJ's Ex-Housekeeper

Key Witness in Wade's

Molestation Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

The Neverland housekeeper who graphically described seeing Wade Robson naked in a shower with Michael Jackson ... will play a huge role in whether Robson wins a cent from MJ's Estate in his new civil lawsuit, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the case tell us Wade's lawyers are dissecting Blanca Francia's testimony during Jackson's 2005 molestation trial.

During the trial, Francia -- who worked at Neverland in the late '80s -- testified she witnessed Jackson showering naked with a 7 or 8-year-old Wade.

We obtained a transcript of the testimony in which Francia describes seeing Michael's underwear on the floor outside the shower, as well as Wade's child-sized neon green underwear.

She said she couldn't see what Michael was doing exactly because the shower door was fogged up, but said she heard him laughing.

Ultimately, Francia's testimony wasn't enough to sway the jury -- MJ was acquitted -- partly because Wade himself also testified, but insisted Michael never touched him.

TMZ broke the story ... Wade is planning to argue that MJ's companies -- MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures -- had a duty to protect him because they were involved in recruiting him from Australia to work with Michael.

According to sources, Wade wants to use Blanca's testimony to show Michael abused him as a child. We're told Wade's lawyers are also trying to contact her to see if she will cooperate in the new case.

Let MJ rest in peace. Can't seem to catch a break, even after he's dead.

These aren't new claims by this woman, they are the same old claims that she made years ago, all without any evidence...whatsoever, to back them up--and all full of innuendo and wild speculation by her; nothing firm, or for certain. There are no recordings, video tapes, photos, paperwork-- nothing to back her up? She never says that she knows Michael Jackson to have been a child molester, no, never!!! Rather, she says she thinks he was a child molester, and that is not a conclusive statement. Even as a witness at the scene, she cannot say with 100 percent certainty, that anything which she has forwarded in this respect, is correct. You at TMZ...are well aware of this fact.

If Wade is successful in his suit, the 2005 Michael Jackson accuser she sue his ass pennyless for being a lying ass coward and letting a pedophile go free. Image this 13 year old boy in 2005, with more courage in his little finger than this bastard, coming forward to say what happened to him and having his heart torn out by this lying SOB who was helping a guilty man go free. Wade, regardless of whether you're telling the truth, YOU
ARE A TERRIBLE PERSON. More than likely you are lying for money!
