Wade Robson Accuses Michael Jackson of Child Molestation
Michael Jackson has been posthumously accused of molesting a now-famous choreographer who spent lots of time with the singer at the Neverland Ranch ... TMZ has learned. TMZ has obtained legal docs ... filed by Wade Robson ... in which he's asking for money from the Michael Jackson Estate for childhood sexual abuse.
Robson -- now 30 years old -- has worked with top names in pop music including Britney Spears, *NSYNC, Usher and P!nk. He has also appeared on "So You Think You Can Dance." Wade met Michael when he was 5 years old and they developed a friendship that lasted for years. By the time Wade was 7, he went for sleepovers at Neverland and MJ's homes in L.A. and Vegas. The sleepovers continued until Wade was 14.
In 2005, Wade testified in MJ's molestation trial and DENIED Michael ever molested him.
Wade's lawyer filed legal docs May 1 asking the judge in the Michael Jackson Estate case to allow him to file a late creditor's claim against the Estate. In the documents, Wade's lawyer says he submitted a never-before filed complaint "for childhood sexual abuse." Wade's lawyer has filed the actual complaint under seal -- which means it's not available to the public. Sources tell TMZ ... the complaint specifically outlines the alleged abuse at the hands of Michael Jackson. Wade's lawyer also mentions a psychiatrist who treated Wade -- the doctor is a leader in the field of child psychology.
Interestingly ... in the 2005 molestation trial, Jackson's former housekeeper, Blanca Francia, testified she witnessed Jackson in the shower with Wade when the boy was 8 or 9 years old.

A 15 yr old boy? Ick, way too old. That's why I sent Robson packing at 14. I liked my playthings, I mean playmates, young and nubile only.

Jackson's estate has plenty of money rolling in. The Jackson estate is partners in two Cirque du Soleil shows based on Jackson's music. One is a touring show and the other is getting ready to open in Las Vegas.

Does it count as actual molestation molestation if MJ was wearing his famed silver glove when he did his diddling? Or was that just class personified?

So, will he have to give the money back?

No doubt he was molested, no doubt they offered him money to lie on the stand, no doubt he never got the money because MJ felt entitled, and thus this. If the family pays him what he was promised he will probably drop it.

What's the point, at this point? The only way those other boys got money was because MJJ $ettled to avoid embarrassing trials (probably a bad idea in hindsight, but that's water under the bridge). But he's dead so who cares?
He can't prove anything- except that he's a desperate, money-grubbing jerk. If he comes up with the proverbial "blue dress"- with DNA on it or something- it means he was holding it all these years in his hope chest.

This is so weird. Maybe he felt sorry for Michael when he was living because he was broke, so he decided not to sue him then? This is so bizarre, like everything else in MJ's life. Wade must not be a choreographer anymore. He will never work in the business again, the big name dancers and choreographers worship Michael Jackson.

He said it was a repressed memory. The guy testified under oath twice that Jackson didn't touch him and wrote this when Jackson died in 2009.

Last year Robson had some kind of breakdown. It may have happened, but his credibility is shot if he's admitting that he lied under oath. Repressed memories have been heavily criticized. Then again Jackson seemed to gun for shady people who had no issues pimping out their kids.

Victims of molestation can be very effective at pretending nothing happened. And then, years or decades later, you wake up and realize that the trauma of abuse has decimated your entire life. I hope that Robson can move forward with his life without the shame, guilt and trauma of abuse shadowing him forever.

She said she used a key to enter Jackson's bedroom to clean it and heard laughter. "First I thought they were playing in the bathtub or the Jacuzzi ... and I walked in, I peek in, and they were in the shower," she said. She saw their underwear on the floor outside the shower and immediately left without saying anything. Jackson's defense team quizzed her about how she could have seen anything if the shower door were steamed up, and she said she was sure she saw "Mr. Jackson and the little kid."
Why would any mother, upon seeing her 8 yr old son in the shower with a grown man, then leave, doing and saying NOTHING about it?

THIS is why Robson didn't go to the police:
"Gradstein says Michael would tell Wade, "If anyone ever finds out about what we did we will go to jail for the rest of our lives" and “our lives will be ruined forever.”
Gradstein tells us the threats worked, and Wade kept his mouth shut, adding, "This kind of intimidation of a child by a sexual predator is tragically characteristic and effective, keeping them quiet about the abuse - often for a lifetime."
Not "repressed memories" WTf. Keep in mind that the WHOLE entertainment business was on MJ's side. And he got brought into the case because a maid testified that she saw him in the shower with Mj. He didn't want that to affect his career!!

If he simply wants to "get it off his chest," why isn't he setting up a foundation for sexually abused children? Going forward and talking about why children lie for and protect their abusers? Writing a book about the experience (and donating the proceeds to child victims?)
But oh no, he's not doing anything like that. Instead, he's suing for money.
Are there any lawyers here? Because I can't believe one can sue a dead man's children for a cash payoff for a crime their daddy (allegedly) committed.

If he's coming out with this story now then he lied under oath twice and should be put in jail. He didn't do or say anything when it counted. Why does he want money for this exactly? It's not going to make him less molested or traumatized.
If he was a true victim he would do something a little less self serving and would be racked with guilt about how he let a 'molester' continue to harm other kids. Instead he's asking for money knowing full well that a dead man can't defend himself. It'll probably come out that he tried to extort the money first and probably threatened to go public with his accusation for a sum of money.

I kind of believe Wade Robson on this. I myself was sexually abused when I was 7 year old boy. I was actually sexually molested three times by my 17 year old female babysitter.
I didn't feel comfortable admitting to it until I was over the age of 28 years old. It's a very difficult thing to admit just to your close friends and family, so I can't imagine it being easy to admit it publicly to the World, especially when your abuser is Michael Jackson!
Sure, he is seeking money, but he probably knows that by admitting the abuse, he won't work ever again in the music industry, so he is trying to get money to secure his future. The music industry is not going to take light of his allegations against Michael, especially now that Michael's music is more popular now than ever before.
I think Wade did care deeply for Michael Jackson when he was alive. It's the whole STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. Victims often begin to develop emotional attachments to their captors/abusers. It's a very common occurance actually.
Also, Wade Robson was only 22 years old when he took the stand in the Michael Jackson case. At 22, especually after being abused for seven years as a child, a person is going to be very vulnerable and easy to manipulate. The case at the time has mass media coverage. I can't imagine it being easy for him to come out with the truth during that period of his life. The only whole Michael Jackson court case was just a circus. Not an easy time to come out with the truth.
Sometimes it takes years for people to face the truth. I think Wade finally came to terms with it and wants to show the World who Michael really was. That he was a talented singer and dancer, who was also a monster behind closed doors. I feel sorry for Michael's children, but if Michael was a pedophile, than they are better off with him being deceased. No child should have to live with a monster like that.
I think more and more people are going to come out about the truth about Michael.

He's not suing the children. He's suing the estate, though the Jackson kids benefit from that estate, along with all the people involved in selling the Jackson image. Jackson's current touring shows, Las Vegas show, music sales all involve many people who are dealing with and benefiting from the estate.
Robson is suing a large corporation that's making millions from M.J.'s image and music. He's not suing a dead man and he's not suing the dead man's children.

The fact that he bailed out on a number of paid commitments, not his accusations about Jackson will hurt him the most in his side of the industry.
Jordan never "recanted". I think his mother may have testified for the prosecution in the 2005 trial.
The fact that Jackson picked kids with sketchy parents didn't appear to have any qualms about pimping out their kids for cash, shopping trips, etc...ultimately worked to his advantage at his 2005 trial in terms of showing what lowlifes they were.

Sweetie, 30 year old straight men don't sleep with other people's children. MJ also cried the Pedophile Mantra...

After MJ died, Jordan finally admitted his dad made him lie about being molested in order to extract money. Jackson began taking painkillers, Valium, Xanax and Ativan to deal with the stress of the allegations made against him. Jackson soon became addicted to the drugs. The stress of the allegations along with his tarnished public image caused Jackson to stop eating, and he lost a significant amount of weight. He cancelled the last leg of his Dangerous Tour and checked into rehab.

Seriously, I probably wouldn't have said anything if I were him either. If it did happen and he went to the police and Michael went to jail that would've been an even bigger news story than it was. Wasn't Oprah's live interview with MJ one of the highest rated ever? No teenager wants to be world famous for being the kid who got Michael Jackson put in jail. He obviously would've been called a liar even if Michael was convicted.

What's not a lie is the extremely damaging information about Jordy Chandler's father, the lawyer he hired and the circumstances surrounding the allegations they made against Jackson. Look for "Was Michael Jakcon Framed?" online. It originally appeared in GQ (if memory serves) and remains perhaps the only objective investigation and reportage of the Chandler case.
Evan Chandler was a would-be screenwriter, who, after his attempts to blackmail MJ failed, accused him of molesting his son. Jordy Chandler has continued to maintain his silence and was famously estranged from his father for many years.
Evan Chandler committed suicide within months of Jackson's death.

Given Jackson's track record, it seems likely that Robson was molested and was too ashamed or scared to speak up until now. But I don't buy the "repressed memory". Repressed memories are contentious at best because they can't accurately and unerringly be distinguished from false memories. We start remembering the most banal childhood incidents differently as we age, and there have been good studies that demonstrate that false memories are easy to implant. Recent scientific research suggests that trauma survivors (esp. extreme trauma survivors) *can't* forget the horrors they've been through - but rather re-live their trauma over and over in vivid detail, until treated through various modalities.

I very much agree with R118. The situation is a tough one because Robson lied and possibly hurt other victims to spare Jackson for whatever reason, and now wants to be considered a victim himself, and it's tough to be sympathetic with him. On the other hand, I fully believe that Jackson behaved inappropriately with children, and I'm always astonished at the people who say he was the victim of tons of false accusations, a media out to get him, AND ALSO all those millions he paid out to an accuser didn't mean anything. Hardly likely.

I understand the cynicism surrounding the term "repressed memory". It has been misused and many a case of religious quacks pulling false memories out of sad, gullible people that their parents were part of ritual abuse rings has just about destroyed any credence in it. If I may share my own experience, perhaps you will see it in a slightly different light. I was beaten, sexually abused and horrendously pyschologically abused by my own mother. I am a woman, and if any of you are old enough to remember the made for TV movie "Sybil" that was a near carbon copy of my childhood, minus the personality divisions.
My mother was obviously a very sick person, but she also had the ability to be very likable to other people and even to me at times. Eventually she discontinued the bad treatment of me(well, the sexual and violent behavior)around the onset of puberty. I somehow chose and was able to place all the bad memories in a box, lock that box, and bury it deep within my brain. I mean, she was my MOTHER! I couldn't imagine for a moment discussing the horrendously embarrassing details with anyone. Naturally, I went on to be a very disturbed woman who fucked up every relationship I ever had, because deep inside I trusted no one. I was 52 years old before I was able to admit to myself what had happened was criminal, and my mess of a life was not my fault. It wasn't a repressed memory as much as it was an awakening. I was finally able to discuss the issue with a psychologist 2 years later. She told me that my case was far from uncommon. It's a matter of shame combined with a desire to not face the fact that someone you needed to trust and love was destroying your fecund being. I imagine that Robson was subject to some degree of inappropriate behavior. I have a theory that while preferring the company of preteen boys to anyone else, MJ did not molest every child he had access to. But if you remember, there were certain kids who he would dress just like him and carry them around as if they were a toddler. I think those were his "special" boys with whom he had some level of illegal intimacy. For the record, I do not for a moment believe that he had any inappropriate relations with his son Prince. In his own warped way, he didn't view his "son" in a sexual way.

r121, I am sure many people can repress memories and recover them accurately. However, other people who claim to experience repressed memory, while doing so may be important for their own treatment and well being, may not be remembering things that actually happened to them. What I object to is repressed memory being treated as persuasive evidence. As therapeutic tool it may be significant. As forensic evidence it is simply not trustworthy because while it may be valid in many cases, it may not be in many others.

Robson says he was molested at 8! That's even more incomprehensible and disgusting than if he was a young teen.
I def believe it happened. It has nothing to do with robson's credibility - he has none. But we all (unless in denial) know what that creepy freak MJ was up to, so all of his special friendships with male children, incl robson, are suspect.
Plus there's something creepy & off about Robson. Look at that Justin & Britney shitstorm he kicked up. He played some fucked up headgames with them, esp Justin, that cost him all his professional opportunities with both of them - two of the biggest stars in the world at the time. That was crazy of him. It's hard to understand why he would act so crazy, so thoroughly shit all over where he ate. But having been molested at age 8 mustve had something to do with it.

R123, you hit the nail on the head.
You cannot experience something then park it away when you haven't been accessing it and retrieve it intact. Your brain just doesn't work that way. Memory doesn't work that way.
As R123 points out, if you think you've been abused or you have memory of something happening then it can assist in therapy. Believing you experienced a traumatic event, especially abuse (think of Hillary Morgan) can be damaging as well as if you actually did experience it. That needs to be dealt with.
However, the chances of "recovered memory" being accurate are slim. While dealing with it can be helpful, even necessary, allowing it as a basis for evidence, especially against another person, is dangerous. For unaccessed memory everything you've experienced since that time can affect or contaminate the "memory" with the resultant confusion or transference of events and persons. Once you come to believe in the recovered memory it's hard to shake that. Hence polygraphs would be useless.
I've seen this in recent years when a man in his mid 30s claimed he had forgotten (for 30 years) about abuse he claims he experienced at the hands of a babysitter when he was "5 or 6." He had recently learned this man was gay (I think he learned about this at his wedding) and within a short time he was experiencing physical discomfort and beginning to "remember" abuse. He was told by a coworker that she had experienced the same physical manifestations and she recovered memory of abuse in therapy. I'm actually unsure which came first - the beginning of the memory or the conversation with the colleague.
So he went to therapy and he also recovered memory - with the memory becoming more descriptive as the months went by. The original detective didn't believe his details and noted his memory and details kept changing. He ended up suing the man ( who didnt have the money to defend the case and ended up pretty much defaulting since he didnt show up at trial ) and got milllions of dollars from the jury later reduced to just one million.
As a evidence at trial he used a picture of himself at the age of 6 and the testimony of a psychologist who specialized in recovered memory (not sure if it was his treating or not). By the way this man was/is a local prosecutor and he handled his own case - so no attorney's fees. Not long after he and his wife bought their first home - a very, very expensive home.

People need to stop quoting the shower thing as evidence for the molestation. The molestation allegations are actually far more trustworthy than the shower story, since they are first hand and were not provoked by the offer of immediate easy payment.

I agree, R132, and I think most people do. But a few hardcore defenders say Jackson just had "the mind of a child" and thought he was a kid, too.
Even if that was true, it STILL probably means he was inappropriate with the kids. Having worked with special needs teens and adults who really were developmentally disabled, it's dangerous to have an adult past puberty unsupervised around children.
Having seen interviews with Jackson, I don't think he "thought he was a kid" or was just trying to recapture his missed youth. He was a pederast deliberately grooming kids, and had millions of dollars at his disposal.

The parents were guilty too, I can’t believe they allowed a grown man to sleep in their son’s room during the night. It sounded like he felt there was no place he could escape Michael Jackson.

I find two things incredibly interesting;
1. There was an article in Rolling Stone years ago that described Jackson's home. Sitting on a desk, in plain view of everyone, were two blow up sex dolls, a female and a male. They were approximately the size of children. I never saw this info reprinted anywhere else, yet it seems quite telling, especially since he made no effort to hide them from children who might be in his house.
2. He had a large collection of Nazi memorabilia, and sometimes compared himself to Hitler. It's thought that soon after his death, someone in the family expunged the home of his extensive Nazi collection. It's funny that this is often ignored as well.
Didn't he also give alcohol to minors? Wasn't that one of the accusations against him? His bedroom was apparently heavily alarmed, so he knew when people were approaching even when they were still quite far away.
Then there's the matter that Lisa Marie Presley stated that his 'little boy act' was a facade, and that he never spoke in his whispery baby talk when they were alone. She said he acted like an adult man when no one else was around.
How can anyone doubt his guilt? Is celebrity really that powerful? I loved his music, but he was clearly an abhorrent child molester.

Because being molested fucks you up, you idiot. Maybe he wants a "pay out" to pay for the years of therapy trying to get over having to suck a thirty five year's dick under threat of prison, especially when your own parents are handing him over to him every night. Jackson admitted on video to sleeping with boys, not of his family, because he "loves children". He had Neverland, a millionaire's version of "You want some candy little boy?"

Every single guy I dated from 20 to 34 asked me point blank if I was molested (because I froze up during sex). And I lied every single time.

I don't know what the truth is, I wasn't there. There are some things that make me suspicious of the claims and others that make me wonder if it's true. Separate and apart from the other claims.
It's funny because there are so many videos of Michael (for people who weren't fans of his until later and actually remember this) in his late teens and early 20s and he's COMPLETELY NORMAL. You remember how grown acting he was as a child? There are so many videos of him with his brothers and family and he is not being bullied, he actually is teasing and making fun of other people..as a prankster/instigator. He had normal relationships with women (it was obvious he had a thing for D. Ross..there are videos where this is apparent, as well..it was not just a motherly thing) and Stephanie Mills used to mess with him back in the day and attests to how normal he was (says she doesn't know what happened afterward). He cultivated this, "I'm a big kid, I never matured in some ways" thing. Youtube it, he was a normal 20 something MAN. Plus, despite his brothers actually having pretty light voices, his natural voice was deeper than most of theirs. Why would a normal man cultivate such an image. The grown man I saw in the different videos could never get away with sleeping with other people's children but if you turn yourself into a weirdo people don't even question it. Remember that suggestive book with little boys photos they found? Ohh, "I didn't know it was there". B.S.
Having said that, he's gotten gotten by scam artists before. Just like he was able to prey on a certain type of parent that would allow things with their child for money, he also attracted scammers willing to use their children to get over (financially) by suing him.

He was on the today show this morning - I thought he came across as very believable. Probably also very well coached, but his emotions when speaking about his son definitely seemed genuine.

Which makes the issue even more murky. I don't see how anyone can seriously think that his perjury on the stand won't have a serious affect on whether he gets a dime out of the Jackson estate.
Jackson was acquitted in 2005 due in large part to the fact that both his accuser and his mother admitted they had lied in a previous civil suit where the mother said she was sexually molested by security guards at J.C. Penny after she was caught shoplifting. Then she had to admit that she had committed welfare fraud.

Regarding Diana Ross, R182, after MJ died, I talked to my music professor about him. She told me she knew someone who had once illustrated an Michael Jackson comic book. He wasn't sure how to draw MJ, and someone told him "Just draw Diana Ross." He did, and MJ loved it.

It isn't considered perjury when a Molestation victim is brainwashed from age seven to fourteen, when Jackson threw him away for being too old, that you must NEVER tell. For some reason you think none of this effects a kid and they just skip into adult hood unscathed.

Here is where I am having a problem - he says it was not repressed memory so he infact lied when he testified for Michael. He claims he only now realized that it was molestation and that it happened for years from 7-14. Okay So during the whole molestation trial and his testimony he never ever thought "gee what these kids are saying happened happened to me" or being an adult and having had sex - now knowing that what Michael did was wrong...no he testified for Michael. Any good lawyer will rip that testimony apart.

Close captioned for the comprehending-impaired:
When Wade Robson was a boy, he was one of many boys molested by Michael Jackson. He and his parents allowed this to happen because a) Michael Jackson was a major star and, b) it might have a big payoff.
Wade and his folks managed a big financial arrangement with MJ, which is why Wade is working as a choreographer and not as an expediter at Godfather's Pizza.
A condition of the payoff was Wade's silence. If you don't get caught (or, in this case, even if you do) it's much cheaper than losing your sugar daddy.
MJ died. There's lots of cash laying around and the vultures are circling.
Really, if you're going to sell something, what would be more lucrative--Wade Robson's "choreography," (okay, I'll be nice and call it "choreography"), or his story as Michael Jackson's piece of A?

I believe he was molested. But he lied, probably for money, and helped Jackson fight against the other victim. And that makes him the lowest of the low.

My guess is that there are plenty of potentially great choreographers who are working as baristas or web designers simply because they didn't get the lucky break that some of the choreographers we know had.

Bad form to bring up Oprah here. In a tearful confession the last season of her show, she admitted that she was devastated by the fact that if Michael Jackson had abused little boys and had she, in fact, been a little boy, she would probably have been one of his victims. The possibility still haunts her to this day.

You have to hand it to the MJ Estate for the complete 180 they have pulled off.
60 minutes did a story last night on all of the money the estate has been able to make since his death. Apparently MJ has sold 50MM albums and the estate has made $500MM. Those kids are set for life, they will never have to work a day in their lives.
Debbie Rowe is one smart cookie, she is digging her claws into Paris, she will be well taken care of into her old age.
Right up until his death MJ was viewed as a pedophile and weirdo, he lived in seclusion. If he had lived who knows if he would have even made it through the "This Is It" Tour? Whatever the case he would still be living beyond his means, drowning in debt and his reputation would be in the gutter.
Now, whenever he is mentioned they only talk about what an amazing artist he was, how he died too young, so on and so forth.
It really is incredible if you think about it. So many view MJ's career and legacy through rose colored glasses.
MJ's estate would be wise to quietly settle with Wade. Have him sign a confidentiality agreement and drop the suit. Too much money is at stake to have a long protracted drama played out through the media.

Exactly r224. That song he wrote for her is gay as hell. There's another song he wrote for La Toya called Night Time Lover, the one good thing she did and that's very Miss Ross styled.
I remember some story where Michael would check into hotels as "Miss Ross" or ask to be called it at times which I can well believe. A case of gay diva worship there, like the film Laura.

Jackson was a monster who preyed on young boys while claiming he didn't have a normal childhood which is just bullshit. His fans are insane for defending that freak's obesession with children as if it's normal for a grown man to invite little boys to sleep in his bed and take showers with him at that shithole known as Neverland, it's obvious he terrorized his victims and thier families due to his celebrity status. His kids whom he claimed to be their father are not his flesh and blood, he used them to satisfy his urges as a pedophile.
