MJ's Ex-Housekeeper

Key Witness in Wade's

Molestation Lawsuit

5/18/2013 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0517_wade_mj_01
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.

What I Think    

I have a few questions for MJ fans. When did the 2005 family make their "extortion" demand??? Where??? How much money was demanded??? Did they in fact actually threaten to accuse MJ of child molestation unless a payoff was made???

So many maybe's, but nothing concrete.

So many probably's, but nothing concrete.

So many opinions being declared as facts with nothing concrete behind them.

If Michael Jackson was an average person, those maybe's, those probably's, those opinions would still not hold up in a court of law, period.

Isn't that the maid who accepted $20,000 from Hard Copy to say made up stories about Michael Jackson.

Pffffttt.. Now that's a good witness for another LIAR.

Why was he never charged for child molestation in 1993? Those charges went before two grand juries and he never was indicted on charges.

Why did the jurors exonerate him in 1993??
Surely if there was evidence they would have convicted him. There was various raids on his house. They took hard drives from computers and NEVER found anything. They didn't even find anything that suggested he was homosexual. Only heterosexual material.
Why did the accusers get on stand and lie in 2005??
They contradicted themselves many time during testimony. The truth is the truth no matter what. It doesnt change.

Blanca Francia was an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who worked as a maid for Jackson between 1986 and 1991.

Yet, Jackson didn't care, but then he acted like lying on the ground drunk & ignoring your kids while illegally injecting Propofol were legal.

Just in case anyone is interested. There are youtube videos done by and expert in body language. He had done analysis of Wade's "coming out" and basically states that all of his behaviors and some of his wording indicate that he is a LIAR> I am 40 year survivor and I wouldn't say I never forgot what happened to me I would say I WILL NEVER forget. His case states it was repressed memory and on the today show he stated it wasn't a case of repressed memory - well which is it. Which Lie are we sticking with today Mr. WADE

I cant believe his lawyer is just now reading Blanca Francia testimony
If that is a big part of his case , then there is no case
This must be Blanca worst nightmare because all these people were brought in to court in 2005 and crashed and burned on cross.
So now Wade is looking for a payday, and he is going to drag them back in to try and help him ,..greed begets greed

Are you grasping this piece of straw to whitewash MJ's crime and sin. Well, you fail? Who is that expert and what is his credential? While you are at it and ignore all other (many many) credible medical experts of child abuse, you may also search on internet to find a medium who may be able to channel MJ to defend himself!!!!

LOL LOL LOL!!!!

I don't understand how he can say at 22 he did not understand the things Michael did was wrong when Michael was in court for doing the same thing to a kid he says Michael did to him.

How many childhood sexual abuse victims defend their abuser in a trial about sexual abuse, when they are adults? And how many sexual abuse victims invite their abuser over for a barbecue AND for their wedding?

How many child abuse victims describe their abuser as "making them believe in the pure goodness of humankind"?
How many child abuse victims voluntarily defend their abuser in a child abuse case, consistently denying that any abuse ever took place?
How many child abuse victims wait for several years after their abuser has died to file a creditor's claim against him, when they had the perfect opportunity to put him in prison when he was alive?
How many child abuse victims praise their abuser at every opportunity over a period of 20 years, even long after the abuser has died?
How many child abuse victims invite their abuser over for a barbecue when they're in their mid-20s?
How many child abuse victims invite their abuser to come to their wedding?
How many child abuse victims do not realise until they're 29 that they were abused when they were forced to perform sex acts for 7 straight years and testified in a child abuse case in defense of their abuser?

None of this seems "typical" behaviour for abuse victims to me.
