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.

Michael Jackson is my Dad. Lisa Marie Presley is my Mom. My name is Elvis Jackson. My twin sister is Elvis-Elle Jackson. We were born All Saints Day 1995. We turn 18 this year. Our real parents aborted us and we went straight to Heaven. God answered the prayers of millions and gave our new parents to us. We really are alive in Heaven. Don't say "bogus" coz prayers are answered in Heaven. We are sorry Grandma Jackson is suing and we apologize to Dr Murray.

I just find it really strange that he is just now bringing this up right when the AEG lawsuit is happening...i hope wade rots in hell for this


---------------

Did you find it strange or did Tommy boy tell you to find it strange.


Did Tommy boy also tell you that a grown ass man having a sleep over with other people's little boy is not strange???

Did Tommy boy also tell you that once that little boy slept with since 7 grew up to 15, you can then dump him and invite another young boy to sleep with you in your bed and showered this other boy with gifts not only to him but to his family as well? And that is not strange???

If Wade said...
.
His father use Teach him the skills/talents his father had, Kissed him on the cheek, Played tag, wrestled, played on go carts. watched movies together, read him books, told him they were family, Went swimming together, gave him a nickname, hugged him and allowed him to sleep in his bed(as he already did in court) and then said that his father did the same with his brothers
.
Does it sound like Wades father is a good father?
.

What Wade was adopted at birth? And his father did the above?

When you remove the Allegations from this and look at it from this perspective there is NOTHING wrong with it.
.

Let's assume that you are thinking no. It's his dad, Dads do that.
.

Now Take that legal Do***ent away, The father is no longer legally the father.
.
How and why does the perspective change? It does from Innocent fatherly to sinister and obviously they must be a child molester. But a moment ago, that man who was legally a father was not seen that way.
.
Does it mean His feelings have just suddenly changed from fatherly love to a sexually charged lusting for kids?
.

If you just found out your parents/or father had pornography stashed in their room as you were growing up and you find some books that you would like yourself. Would you suddenly make your father and/or mother a monster? would it change them as caring parents who wouldn't touch a child?
.

It's all in the "name" and words. Our thoughts change once the name is given or taken away.
.
Someone who does these things is nothing like Michael Jackson, he doesn't even work like one, He acts like a father. The son he didn't have, being the father he didn't have. Nothing more.

The loser who was paid 20K by Hard Copy to make up a story claiming she saw MJ naked with boys, and later testified under oath that she was paid to do it?!?! She is a very 'credible' witness!

Michael paid a whopping $20m to silence the kid in 1993.

What IF he IS telling the truth? If not, they will prove it in court. IMO, all reports of sexual abuse should be taken seriously, period.

Everybody knows the truth. That's why the Jacksons are going all out to blame anyone and everyone they can to keep his old image intact. Not working.


The Jacksons are the only ones who are after his money. They haven't stopped trying to get it since his death.


Michael Jackson had a very simple will. He didn't leave a penny to his family. He left his estate to people he trusted and his family was not it. Jackson made sure of that. He knew what they would do and he was right.


Sadly Jackson will be most remembered for child molestion accusations that will never go away and being a hard core pharm junkie that turned himself into a freak show. Not his music or talent.

I just want to say that all a person needs- REAL fans, band-wagon fans and even non-fans who are lurking- is COMMON SENSE. COMMON SENSE should tell you that Wade is LYING. NOTHING that he is saying is credible of makes sense. COMMON SENSE should tell you that NO VICTIM is going to DEFEND his so-called abuser on the witness stand as a grown man when he could easily have put his so-called abuser away for LIFE. COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called "victim" Robson CONTINTUED to defend his so-called "abuser" for YEARS, even up to the time of his death with nothing but praise and words like "Michael was the nicest and kindest human being on earth". COMMON SENSE wouild tell you that this so-called "victim" even invited his co-called abuser to have dinner with him and his son. COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called victim has done tribute after tribute to his so-called "abuser". COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called "victim" was bragging that he was going to choreograph Michael's Immortal tour and the ONE show in Vegas. COMMON SENSE should tell you that a so-called "victim" would NOT want to be associated with ANYTHING by a so-called "monster" or "abuser". COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called "victim" didn't have "repressed memory" UNTIL he was REJECTED from being the choreographer of the aforememtioned shows. COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called "victim" has NOW changed his story and says that he does NOT have repressed memory, but just decided to tell. COMMON SENSE should tell that this so-called "victim" waited FOUR YEARS after the death of his so-called "abuser" to file a claim for MONEY with his so-called "abuser's" estate/ COMMON SENSE should tell you that this so-called "victim" only did this AFTER a lawsuit was filed against his employer AEG. COMMON SENSE shoujld tell you that Wade Robson and his claims are BULL$$$$

AUSTRALIAN Wade Robson is one of the hottest young talents in Hollywood and yesterday he revealed he had as a child shared a bed with Michael Jackson.

Brisbane-born Robson, who has a hit TV show in the US and a three-movie directing deal with Disney, broke his silence about the years he spent visiting Jackson at Neverland Ranch in California.

He is now 21 and shadowed by his friendship with the superstar, which began at age five. But Robson says it was an innocent relationship that never involved any sort of abuse.

"I never had that experience and I hope that it never happened to anybody else," he said...

COURT:

MESEREAU: Is everything you've said the complete and honest truth?

ROBSON: Yes.

MESEREAU: Did Mr. Jackson ever do anything wrong with you?

ROBSON: No.

...

ZONEN: You're telling us nothing happened; is that right?

ROBSON: Yes.

ZONEN: All right. What you're really telling us is nothing happened while you were awake; isn't that true?

ROBSON: I'm telling you that nothing ever happened.

ZONEN: Mr. Robson, when you were asleep, you wouldn't have known what had happened, particularly at age seven, would you have?

ROBSON: I would think something like that would wake me up.

First off I remember they showed his home in neverland as set up where no one could come near his Bedroom without alarms going off. No staff was allowed around his Certain parts of his house. I am sure no one had Keys or Codes to just come in . Especaily a Bath room. . So for this house Keeper to claim she saw them in the shower is alot of BS. this guy Wade probably offered her a Cut if He wins the case. Sorry don't believe it one bit.

Common sence says Jackson was guilty as sin. He was Michael Jackson the celebrity who had the money, power, clout and top notch lawyers to get away with it. Doesn't mean he didn't do it.


Court of public opinion doesn't agree. This is still following him around and not going away.


People can't seem to seperate Jackson the entertainer on stage to the man off the stage. 2 different people.


Jacksons legacy is going to be a child molester that got away with it and a hard core pharm junkie that turned himself into a freak show.
