MJ's Ex-Housekeeper

Key Witness in Wade's

Molestation Lawsuit

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

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's face it. Nobody has been able to or will be able to accuse MJ of molestation without being instantly mauled in the court of public opinion. Especially if the accusations are plausible and believable.

What I want to know is why did MJ high tail it to Bahrain as soon as he got off on molestation charges in 2005? Bahrain is one of the very few countries in the world where pedophilia is tolerated. MJ was besties with the local oil monarchy and had access to anything that country has to offer. Anything.

Never you mind.    

Haha Blanca Francia seriously!?

Even her son Jason was laughed at in the courtroom in 2005 because he couldn't get his story straight.

He even admitted in the courtroom the police pressured him and made him say MJ molested him.

I will let you in on the facts on this Blanca woman since TMZ wont.

Blanca Francia was hired in 1985 to be MJ’s personal housekeeper, and continued to work for him at Neverland. She was fired in 1991 for theft and tardiness, among other disciplinary problems.
(This was confirmed by other Neverland employees.)

She was an illegal alien with a fraudulent social security number, who also had her wages garnished by creditors to pay her debts, and who once looked inside the purse of a co-worker to see how much they had been paid!

In December 1993, Blanca’s friend and former Neverland co-worker Evangeline helped secure her interview with Diane Dimond of Hard Copy, and Blanca gave Evangeline some of the $20,000 dollars that she was paid.

Blanca was also required by contract to give Dimond a photo of MJ and her son Jason.

Blanca was misled by Dimond into thinking that she would be talking exclusively about her employment at Neverland, but instead she was asked questions about Michael Jackson, and the things that she allegedly “saw” while working there. For example, she said that she was concerned about the safety of her son after seeing MJ reading to him and playing tickling games with him, and that she saw MJ showering with a young boy, which made her quit her job in disgust.

However, during her deposition in January 1994 with Larry Feldman, Blanca admitted that Dimond and Hard Copy “were not very honest” because they sold her photos to other tabloids, she was also contacted by the National Enquirer and the LA Times for an interview, that she was “tired and nervous” during the deposition, and didn’t see Wade Robeson in the shower with MJ, and really couldn’t tell who was in the shower!

She also admitted to both Hard Copy and Larry Feldman that she never saw MJ abuse any child.

There was a major discrepancy between Blanca and her son Jason’s testimonies regarding his first account of “abuse”: Blanca said that she witnessed Jason sitting on MJ’s leg as he read Jason a book and she grabbed him and left, and Jason initially admitted this in his police interrogation, but in 2005 he testified that he and MJ rolled on the floor before the tickling games began! Jason also testified that there was a TV in the room, but Blanca did not mention one in her testimony.

Also, during her testimony Blanca said she couldn’t remember if her friend Evangeline tried to set up the interview with the National Enquirer in 1994, until Mesereau showed her the deposition transcript, and the jury laughed at her (after she said “Oh”, in recognition of what she said in 1994)!
Blanca also admitted that MJ had children and adults in his bedroom at all hours of the day and night, and when children slept in his bed, there were many of them, not just one!

She also testified that MJ called lots of children “Applehead” and “Rubba”, and had tickling games with them, including his own cousins, nieces, and nephews!

How is anyone going to believe this guy when he already testified that he was never sexually abused? He also states that he's not after any money, REALLY? Isn't it already too late to go after the Estate anyways? It's been many years now since this allegedly happened. He said he didn't repress anything, he remembers everything that MJ did to him and always did. So how can he proceed? Am I missing something? He's to late, go after someone who is alive and can defend themself. Loser!!

People lied maliciously all the time. That's why Jackson was mutilated and drugged by doctors & is dead.
He learned from his own parents. He became ignorant, attention-seeking & negligent toward children he knew & didn't know, just like his parents were. He may not have tried to be wrong, but he didn't understand how kids lived in the real world outside of Joe Jackson's home.
He wasn't always unhappy after the trial.
Don't be fooled. He was in Japan, Ireland & England. He was smiling &
posing for photos and going to fan concerts that charged $500 dollars from each fan.

He thought he would be old with his children & the world praising him as a religious preacher, healer, genius child lover & greatest entertainer of all time.

Wade lied & lied because he learned from Joy Robson & Jackson and other worshippers who never said no to Jackson's repetitive, bizarre lies & excuses (lies that Jackson admitted that he learned from his own parents).

Lies: Lie that Gavin Arviso was innocent "like all other kids".
Lie that beating innocent kids kept them from taking drugs & hurting themselves & others. Lie that forgiving Joe Jackson let you to live without lies in the future.
Lie that buying children gifts would make your life happy and childlike again.

Jackson needed to buy tons of gifts for rich people who had abusive parents.
Jackson bought gifts for some boy who followed him around to get a career for himself (while the media showed them).
When buying gifts lead to financial ruin, insomnia & drug use, there will be confusion & death.
Because Jackson was an entertainer, he could be tolerated by everyone. Wade could be a criminal too, but he's treated like a nobody. If both needed mental help, no one would've done anything for them, either way.

It's usually a good sign that my kids don't like it somewhere when they don't want to go back. Stfu wade, you're a POS and you know it.

all this stuff is just a a smokescreen to divert from the
Jackson vs AEG trial
I wonder what AEG has promised Wade for this ?
Maybe a job in the future since his career has tanked.
BTW Harvey as usual is slanting the Blanca Francia testimony and forgetting to include the cross examination where she admits she never saw MJ shower with anyone., that she had stolen things from MJ, that she actually didnt "quit in disgust" she had to leave for stealing and her wages were attached for stiffing so many creditors,at least 3 different times.

I saw Michael Jackson molesting a 9 year old boy back in 1991. I was his personal assistant for 6 years. I went into his bedroom one day because he told me that i could borrow some cds. While I was getting the cds, I heard strange moaning noises coming from his closet. It was his voice and a child's voice. At first I thought they were just playing, but as I peaked through the little crack, I saw that they were having anal sex. I was shocked! I couldn't believe it. How can someone do such a horrible thing to a child? I immediately went downstairs, picked up the phone and called the national enquirer. I told them what i saw and they offered me $32,000..I immediately accepted the offer and continued working for Jackson for 3 more years.

It's all BS.

The timelines are messed up. Wade didn't have any real contact alone until after September 1991 when he moved to America with his sister and mother Aged 9. Michael Jackson worked on Dangerous Album for 16 months which started in 25th June 1990 and that did not get finished until 29th October 1991 and then released November 1991. Then he did the 3 music videos in early 1992, then rehearsed for his June europe tour which did not finish until 31st December 1992 which then Wade was 10. Michael Jackson went back on Tour 27th August, 3 days before that date he was accused of child abuse with another child. So Michael apparently as busy as he was, had time to groom 2+ children and manage to be involved in both their families lives in a short amount of time, while also being heavily into Demorol which decreases the sex drive, the heavier you use Demorol more likely that there is a sex drive. So he did his tour until 11th November and Liz Taylor took him into Rehab in Europe.


Anyone see where this is not making sense?

Check up Child abusers and grooming,
Check up Demorol.
Check up his time table for the times BOTH children accused about.

And then check up Wades own Time table.
AT 11 he was making an album with DeWayne Turrentine the duo called QUO.
Also he was teaching other kids to dance, who danced internationally.
He says he was molested from 1989 until 1996.
Just look up what's available for that period of time. This man broke many different records and i'm not talking about his Music only.

It's almost impossible.
Fact remains. Michael Jackson is innocent. People who hate him and do not look at any facts just play into the hands of these evil people, more the fool them.
Hate makes people irrational in their thinking. Blinded by the truth because they do not wish to think of the person as anything but evil.
