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.

People forget Jackson pushed for this tour. Jackson was broke. No one approached him. He knew damn well he was in no condition to do a concert let alone a tour. Jackson was a hard core pharm junkie for over 25 years and getting worse.


He had no hair, no nose left, 110 pounds soak and wet. Now the Jacksons want to blame AEG as well.


Jackson will be more remembered for his mosestation accusations and how he turned himself into a freak more than his music.


Michael Jackson did this to himself.

Again, it's their word versus their word. Michael is dead and not hear to defend himself, and the testimony of tBlanca Francia was thrown out of court previously, so why would it be relevant now?

No, TMZ. Ultimately, Francia's testimony was thrown out because she admitted SHE LIED FOR MONEY AND WAS A KNOWN THIEF!!!

A copy of Francia's sworn testimony reveals that Hard Copy paid her $20,000, and had Dimond checked out the woman's claims, she would have found them to be false. Under deposition by a Jackson attorney, Francia admitted she had never actually see Jackson shower with anyone nor had she seen him naked with boys in his Jacuzzi.


THE "GRAVE" ROBBER WANT TO REACH OUT TO A KNOWN "LIAR"!!!!

If this guy Wade were acting out of hurt and anger, and moved by seeking justice because of molestation, he would be satisfied with telling his story to expose the truth and the responsible ones. But he is moving every stone to make a lawsuit to make money and he can be all set for life. And money is what this is about, not justice.

It's been in testimony in at least 2 trials by more than one person that NO STAFF was allowed in MJ's private quarters - so.... the maid was "wondering" - I think she compromised herself by selling a story to the dirty tabloids - "they do it for the money" anything - anything for MONEY they'll lie for it they'll die for it - they'll sell their soul to the devil - all for MONEY$$$$$$$$$$$

For all the people saying why this maid allowed it to happen. Look at Jimmy Saville, and how the BBC production allowed him to continue to molest little girls. The maid was threatened on top of that.

Victims started coming out AFTER Jimmys death too

If he and the housekeeper are telling the truth now, then they were lying before. Again--either way--liar, liar. Too late.
