Latest MJ Accuser

He Kept Me Out of School

... So He Could Molest Me

5/14/2014 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Michael Jackson Molestation AccuserThe lawyer for the latest Michael Jackson sexual molestation accuser is coming out swinging ... telling TMZ the pop star routinely made the young boy skip school so he could be "available" to MJ.

James Safechuck's lawyer, Maryann Marzano, tells TMZ ... MJ publicly flaunted his relationship with the boy, making it appear they were best friends and Safechuck was Michael's protege.  The lawyer says in reality MJ was privately molesting the kid. 

As TMZ previously reported, James Safechuck (who appeared alongside MJ in a 1987 Pepsi commercial) is accusing Jackson of years of sexual abuse. MJ estate attorney Howard Weitzman has called the allegations "false and scurrilous."

Marzano says a "narcissistic" MJ would prevent Safechuck from going to school as a 10 and 11-year-old so the boy could be available to him when he was on tour.

Marzano tells TMZ, "If there is still any question about the predatory nature of Michael Jackson’s so-called ‘friendships’ with young boys, it should be laid to rest by the indisputable facts of what Michael did to James Safechuck."

The specific accusations are sealed, but Marzano says the case against Michael is airtight.

It's amazing that the do***ents were "sealed," but somehow Diane Dimond gets the scoop before anyone and now the lawyer is speaking out???? Whatever! How can a case be air tight when there is no proof other than his word -- especially 30 years later.

Not even dead he can get some rest. If this allegation is true why didn't he do something when MJ was alive and could do time for it? He just wants money!

I believe it too, just feel that it's unfair to accuse anyone who can't defend themselves. Convenient to wait to sue til he's dead.

Shouldn't the lawsuit be against his mother for taking him out of school? That's actually illegal at that age....

Another hoax!It's kinda strange that all these "SO CALLED"victims come out with their stories "DECADES" later.What everybody has suppressed memories.WOW! I guess some people will literally do anything for money.I believed some of the allegations against M.J, but it just seems odd,that anyone would hold back something like this happening to them, especially when they see others come out and tell their personal stories of abuse concerning the same abuser.

What the hell is wrong with this kid's parents. Who would let their kid skip school at that age and that frequently and for what reason? To make a quick buck off their kid. Really? Their parents should be ashamed, although it's probably his parents who are looking to cash in yet again, and their kid is now just like them.

im not saying everyone who claims it happens is telling the truth but i believe more will come forward. ANYONE thinking MJ wasnt a pedo is crazy!! he didnt like women, he didnt like other men(gay) all he was ever with was kids and where theres smoke there is fire. Why do ppl wait so long? Most victims, especially boys feel sooo ashamed, and thats with regular pedo crimes. imagine MJ being the pedo?? If you never been molested or work with patients who have, know somebody who has..its undertandable why you may find it hard to believe.. BUT I BELIEVE IT 200%
