Joe Jackson

Wade Robson's Getting

PAID TO LIE

Wade Robson
is getting paid big money to destroy Michael Jackson's reputation with child abuse allegations ... so says MJ's dad Joe Jackson.

Joe was at the airport in L.A. Wednesday when we asked about Wade's claims against the MJ estate -- that the singer sexually abused him as a child for years -- but Joe doesn't buy Wade's story for a second ... and he's not placing the blame entirely on Wade's shoulders either.

Joe's got his own conspiracy theory about who's REALLY behind Wade's allegations ... and whoever it is has a massive wallet.

Joe making fun of Michael's nose and kicking him in the groin is why he cut his face off and became a-sexual. That guy has a lot of nerve pointing fingers!

I hate to agree with Joe Jackson on ANYTHING, but this sounds possible. AEG stands to lose billions of dollars, I doubt there's a stone they wouldn't try to turn to get their way and Robson seems greedy as hell. If you check out his Wikipedia page, he hasn't worked the last several years, and all of a sudden he's moving into a new place in Hawaii and running his mouth about allegations after defending Jackson not only a few times under oath, but even doing a tribute show to him after his death and going on about how they remained friends past his death. Frankly, AEG and Wade sound shady as hell.

AEG may have recruited Wade Robson to execute a plan to manipulate the media. The plan is to get the attention away from the trial, and also get the public opinion against MJ. It was probably no coincidence that Robson's accusation came at the same time as MJ’s make-up artist Karen Faye testified in court. Faye stated that she and others repeatedly expressed their serious concerns about MJ's health, but those in charge (AEG) responded in a dismissive, callous manner. Karen Faye’s serious accusations against AEG in court got almost no media coverage, because of Robson.


A few days later an AEG employee stated in court that financial papers proved that CONRAD MURRAY WAS EMPLOYED BY AEG, and NOT by MJ. Even this very important fact didn’t get the media’s attention, they were busy with Wade Robson, who made the TV interview right then.
The timing is suspicious, to say the least.

Wade Robson has repeatedly worked for AEG, and will probably work for them in the future... at least if he sticks to his story.

Michael Jackson's family offered to settle lawsuit, lawyer says

---

A lawyer for Michael Jackson’s family said they offered to settle their wrongful-death suit against concert promoter Anschutz Entertainment Group, but that they never got an answer.

Kevin Boyle, an attorney for Jackson’s mother and three children, said the family made the offers in January and March.

Boyle would not provide details but said AEG’s insurance would have paid, “which means they could have settled the case without them paying a dime of their money.”


He said AEG has never offered to settle “and they haven’t apologized.”

Marvin Putnam, an attorney for AEG, said it was inappropriate to discuss settlement discussions.

“We don’t settle matters that are utterly baseless,” he said. “We believe that is the case in this matter. I can’t see why we would consider a settlement as anything other than a shakedown.”

AEG was the promoter and producer of Jackson's comeback concert series in London. The singer died June 25, 2009, at the end of rehearsals, of an overdose of the anesthetic propofol administered by Dr. Conrad Murray.


The Jacksons say in their lawsuit that AEG negligently hired and supervised Murray. AEG says Jackson hired Murray and that any money the firm was supposed to pay him would have been loans to the singer.

The trial, in its fourth week, is expected to take as long as three more months.

There ya go. It has never been about justice or seeking the truth.

It always has been and always will be about the MONEY where the Jackson's are concerned.

Elvis-Elle Jackson is my twin sister. Michael Jackson is our Dad. Lisa Marie Presley is our Mom. My name is Elvis 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, who wanted Mom and Dad to have kids. So, God made them our new parents. If you think God can't do this, bring ice when you come here. There's no ice water where you're going. We are sorry Grandma Jackson is suing and we apologize to Dr Murray.
