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.

Nothing. He should get nothing. “IF” Mr. Robson is telling the truth, he has perjured himself; he helped to clear a man he is now calling guilty. Mr. Robson has done more damage to those families over these last few decades, then any amount of money can repay. He called those boys liars, he told the public, the press, everyone that MJ was great & innocent. His defense of MJ has caused emotional and financial harm to those families. If MJ had been incarcerated it could have prevented even more children from being harmed. It would have shown those families that justice does exist. No excuses Robson, he was an adult, he said he remembered everything that happened, that he has never forgot. He also knows what a lie is, and what the truth is. He knowingly LIED under oath. They asked specific and detailed questions, he lied. SHAME. Mr. Robson has caused immeasurable harm to those families, if he gets anything from his filings, I hope those families come after him next. He deserves NOTHING. At anytime he could have said one word and told the truth. He was not a child; Shame on Mr. Robson. Am I being harsh? Hell No. My sister was molested, and her friend lied, LIED, and did more harm to her than anything that man ever did to her. SHAME….

Why would Blanca Whatshernuts help Wade when he made her look like a liar nearly a decade ago? What's in it for her? Is she gonna get a cut of the judgement that Robson's not getting?

TMZ needs to read all the 2005 court transcripts when Bianca was on the stand testifying. She said under oath that she only saw 1 shadow in the shower and heard 2 people laughing. She admitted that she did not see any child in the shower and she assumed in was MJ in the shower. If you look at the photo's of the bathroom and where she was standing, it was impossible for anyone to see who was in the shower because the shower stall was behind a wall. Biana had lied and Meserea proved in court that she was lying. Hopefully Robson's attorney will use her as a witness because it will assist him in losing Robson's case.

So wade Says from age 7 until age 14 he was molested. Well that's weird because that doesn't add up.

1989 Age 7 Wade saw michael jackson after his mum tracked him down, him and his family started at Michael Jacksons house, Wade and his 10 year old sister stayed in his bed for that week. Then they went back to Australia

________________________________________
For the next 2 years he and his mother flew to America 2 times per year. and stayed in America for a couple of weeks each time.
_____________________________________

1990 aged 7 and 8.
He is asked in court where he stayed and this is taken from the transcript. His answers.

A. Some of it was at Neverland. Sometimes it
would be at the -- he had an apartment in I think it
was Westwood at that point that we would stay at
sometimes, too.
____________________________________
Q. That’s your mother and you would stay at the
apartment in Westwood?
_______________________________________
Yeah. That first time, I think a couple
times, sometimes I would stay by myself. Always --
I think -- sometimes -- most of the time my mother
and I went to the ranch together. I think once I
was there by myself without my mother. There was
3 other people there.
_________________________________________
Then he went back to Australia

We are going into 2 years after the alledged Molestation started.
_______________________________________

____________________________________
He obviously spent no time with Michael Jackson from June 1990, unless his two trips were at the first half of the year.

1990 25th June - 29th October of 1991 Michael Jackson was working hard on his Dangrous album at arrabee North and Ocean Way Studios. Which came out Noember 26th 1991. If Wade visited in that time, He would not have seen Michael Jackson much if any time at all.
_______________________________________

1991 September Aged 9: Wade moved to America
1991 September: Michae Jackson was still working on his album.

1992 Michael Jackson would be rehersing for his Dangrous world tour
1992 November Michael Jackson begins his close friendship with Lisa Marie Presley
1992 27th June - 31st December Michael Jackson was on Tour
1993 24th August - 11th November Michael Jacksons Dangerous tour
1993 August Michael Jacksons house raiding while he was on tour, at this time he had no warning so he didn't hide anything, he had no prior notice and was on tour.
1993 November Michael Jackson went into Rehab for Dependecy to drugs
1993 Michael Jackson was investigated for Accusations of Molestation.

1996 7 September - 15th October 1997 Michael Jackson starts his History Tour

_______________________________

Does anyone see the time tables of Michael Jackson in this time?
Child Molesters normally have to take their time and form a bond before they act upon their desires. That time line does NOT add up.
The time line is from Wades Court transcript of 2005 and well the public accessible stuff for Michael Jackson.

These claims are getting more ridiculous by the day. This Blanca Francia woman was grilled at the 2005 trial and fell through the roof. Her testimony was very different from her deposition. She was paid large sums of money for her stories by Diane Diamond. If this is the key witness for Wade Robson, then it's more proof for me that he is a liar. Maybe for money, maybe because he's threatened into this claim by 'some' third pary, and probably both...

In the 2005 trial that Robson testified in and defended MJ was NOT why MJ was acquitted. Mesereau proved by all the other's who testified that MJ was innocent and was being extorted by the little boy's parents. The little boy could not keep his story straight when he was on the witness stand. The child from the 1993 acquisations refused to testify in the 2005 trial. Robson has been in the media for one week and he has already contradicted himself 4 times. That will be used in court against him to prove he is lying.

Its obvious MJ molested those boys... A lot of casual people dont know some of the stuff MJ did and kept in his bedroom. For example he kept books of naked boys edited by previous child sex offenders locked away in a cabinet.. MJ's lawyers defended those books by saying they are artistic LOL
