Michael Jackson Molested Sean Lennon
From Michael Jackson Unauthorized by Christopher Andersen - 1994
At other times, James DeBarge would say, Michael would tap softly on the door and say, "Is it all right if I come in?" before unloading once more on his sympathetic sister and her frustrated new husband.
Michael's complaint that he didn't "have anyone" was not altogether accurate, according to DeBarge. Michael was spending more and more time with little Sean Lennon—sometimes days at a time in his room,watching television, playing games, roughhousing on the floor.
In a taped conversation with a police informant in 1993 as reported in the British papers, DeBarge revealed that one morning he peeked into Michael's room and saw him in bed with Sean. Asked if he saw Michael and Sean together in a sexual way, DeBarge reportedly replied, "Yes."
DeBarge went on, "My room was next door. I saw them when I was snooping. Michael knew it, too. But he didn't care. I guess he figured I was no threat.

Michael now kept volumes of photographs of child actors and models in his room, and he pored through them in search of children—usually boys aged nine to thirteen—to "audition" for future projects.
Over the next several years Michael's bodyguards were instructed, according to court papers filed in Los Angeles in 1993, to smuggle many of these boys into the house at all hours of the day or night. In some instances Michael telephoned in advance to find out if either Katherine or Joewas home or away. If they were home, he asked if they had gone to bed.
"If the parents were gone or had retired for the night," the guards recalled, "he would then arrive alone with a young boy typically appearing to be between nine and fourteen years of age. Upon arrival at the grounds, he would drive to an area near his suite in the compound."They would then enter by a spiral staircase that led directly to Michael's room. From that point, the bodyguards continued, Michael would "disappear with the young boy into his suite sometimes for several hours, sometimes for the entire night." Or longer, in some cases.
"All the boys would sleep in bed with him," DeBarge said—a fact later confirmed not only by Michael's own lawyers, but by the boys themselves.
At least once, according to the bodyguards, Michael had them hide"a young Asian boy believed to be somewhere between nine and four-teen years of age in the guard shack until Michael called to say his parents had left the estate."

Because his drug problem made him a virtual pariah within the family, DeBarge said that Michael did nothing to conceal his playmates from him.
On one night when DeBarge admitted he "wasn't sup-posed to be there," he saw Michael "running around naked with a boy."As for those auditions: "He had all the boys over to the house for his videos," DeBarge said, "more than he needed. If you went near his room when he was with them, he'd say, 'We're practicing.' He didn't want anyone watching."
But around DeBarge he made little effort to conceal his activities. "He got away with it so many times,he became comfortable," DeBarge said.
"After doing it so many times,you feel you don't have to hide anymore. He did it right in front of me.He knew I saw him and that I knew he was doing it, but he just kept right on doing it. He trusted me."
Michael was right. For nearly a decade—until one of Michael's special friends ignited the biggest show business scandal in history—De-Barge, like so many others, said nothing.

By the time he stumbled upon Michael in bed with Sean Lennon, DeBarge claimed to be "unshockable.
"Katherine was well aware of her son's visits with Lennon. When the bodyguards claimed in a 1993 lawsuit that one of the children they secreted at the guardhouse had Asian features, Michael's mother inadvertently aggravated her son's situation by confirming that the mystery boy was Sean Lennon.
"Sean would come and visit," she said, "and stay about a week." Did Katherine believe that her son might have been molesting these children? "She knows," DeBarge claimed. "Living at that house is a nightmare."
Elliot Mintz, Yoko Ono's spokesman and along time Lennon family friend, often escorted Sean to Hayvenhurst and claimed the boy was never dropped off at the guardhouse. Mintz described DeBarge's recollections as "nonsense. Sean is a very hip and sophisticated kid," said Mintz. "He had to grow up real fast after his father's death. If anything wrong was going on between him and Michael, he would have reacted appropriately and said something. Henever did." Sean Lennon and Michael remain close friends.

Why did Michael Jackson run down to K-Mart?
He heard that boys' pants were half off.

A child who grew up without a father and only a crazy, absent mother? That was almost too easy of a target for a predator like Michael Jackson.

Why won't McCaulay speak up about MJ? I would think now is the time to do it, especially after that documentary came out. MJ is guilty as sin. McCaulay has many of the hallmarks of his other victims. If it's true about Sean, where was Yoko?

Have to wonder why Lennon would write "We didn’t understand / Dancing with Peter Pan / What would be the result when we / Turned into young adults" and have a video like that produced, then claim it was all harmless fun that didn't mean anything.

This can't be true. Why, if Debarge knew about it then Janet would have too and there's no way Janet would have kept silent and stood by her brother all these years, right????

R26 you're joking, Right?!!! Janet and the rest of her family Knew MJ was a pedo, especially Janet, She's a No body fool (don't buy the soft innocent facade). Also, Janet along with LaToya witnessed the sick sleepovers MJ repeatedly had with young boys in Encino.

Yet none of this or anything ever came out at any trial?
I think he probably did do the things said, but don't believe all the things said. Why not say it when you could've done some help? This just shows that if these people are telling the truth they are just as bad for doing nothing to help or stop him.

Families stick together. Especially when the big breadwinner is a creep and perv. Janet Jackson's own reputation would be shot if it was known that a) she had such a creep in her close family and b) kept silent and covered for him for years and years.
Sean Lennon and Macaulay Culkin chose to deal with the trauma on their own instead of sharing it with the public (out of shame?). And that's their right.

I still don't get why Ono didnt ho for his balls, his behavior was serially consistent. She'd have had unlimited press...something she's always been a fan of but something is off. Especially given that hauntingly disturbing video.

[quote] "[M]y intention is very sincere and harmless, and I’m just making a song,” Lennon said. “I’m not trying to take him [Michael Jackson] out or anything, or put him down."
[quote] “I just thought it was an interesting metaphor for what happened to a lot of Michael’s friends who were my age. It felt like there was something odd going on, and I still don’t know what it was,” Lennon said of the lyrics. “Nothing ever happened with me in an illegal way, but the whole place just felt like I was in some Peter Pan fantasy land."
Those are quotes from the Rolling Stone article. It sounds like, at the very least, Sean Lennon witnessed some evidence of other children getting sexually molested. He may be a victim himself and I hate to criticize him if he is a victim, but I really hate when people say shit like: "I'm just making a song."
R33, that's Paul McCartney's son, James McCartney. That's not Sean Lennon. The pics below are Sean on the left and James McCartney on the right.

Paul McCartney hates Michael Jackson with a passion for buying the rights to The Beatles music. At one point they were friends and when that happened, MJ responded with "this is just business" in his trademark man-child voice. He stabbed McCartney in the back. He wasn't the innocent victim he portrayed himself as.
|by Anonymous||reply 42||November 15, 2019 4:11 PM
R42, Paul McCartney's story just proves that the narrative of Jackson having the heart and mind of a child is bollocks. His fans like to claim that he shared his bed with little boys because he was too sheltered and naive to understand how creepy it was. But if he was savvy enough to rip off a Beatle, he was savvy enough to realise that sleeping with children is the behaviour of a paedo.

There's a reason why MC was a heroin addict for years and it has everything to do with Michael Jackson. He's still quite obviously on mood stabilizers as well. He looks extremely unhealthy.

Notice his fans are defending him all over the comments btw. They are saying he "only did it one time" and he "gave homeless people hundreds of dollars". They would probably wouldn't believe their own kids if they told them he molested them.

I never could understand why Paul McCartney was so angry with M. Jackson for buying the Beatles' publishing rights. If MJ could buy them, PM could have bought the rights, too. Was PM strapped for cash & couldn't afford to buy the rights at the time? How can you be that angry?

[quote] "It seems Paul's people once told one of the ATV officers that their client was interested in buying the copyrights, but that he didn't want to go through lengthy negotiations," a source told the Los Angeles Times. "They said, in effect, 'You go out and get your best offer and we'll pay 10 percent more.'
Thanks, R49. Maybe I'm tired now, but I still don't understand. It looks like PM was willing to pay 10% more than the seller's highest bidder. But then, it looks like PM wasn't given the opportunity to do that? Sounds like MJ's negotiating agent was more active. Sorry, but I still don't feel that sorry for PM. If he had really wanted those publishing rights, he should have gone in there and negotiated, even if he had to be a silent "partner."
Also don't understand how it's a revelation, business-wise, that publishing rights to very popular songs are a gold mine. PM & MJ are writers. Maybe you get burned very early on, but it seems obvious that you want to own publishing rights. Dolly Parton seems very savvy, from a long time ago.

I hung out with Sean one night through mutual friends. He was dating one of the chicks from Cibo Matto at the time. He and I really hit off and talked all night. He's straight but I was falling in love with him. One of the kindest, most thoughtful guys I've ever met. At one point we were talking about our moms and I was thinking "yer mom is Yoko Fucking Ono!". Never saw him again but it was a great night and I think about it all these years later.

I've met Yoko AND Katherine Jackson.
Katherine Jackson is a bitch.
Yoko is alright. I can see why Sean would deny it to protect Yoko.
I think Katherine Jackson fucked up Michael Jackson by calling him a faggot and being into that Jehovah Witness shit. Honestly she is probably gay herself.

Why won't Macaulay ever admit it? Do you think Michael left him alone because he was so famous?
Or embarrassment? No one wants to be the kid raped by Michael. I respect the ones that came forward and wish them much healing. It's not their fault at all!

Sean Lennon is cute and worth 200 million. I dont think MJ got his hands on him like he did other kids,but I do think Sean smelled a rat nonetheless. That video at R4 speaks volumes. As an aside , is Yoko EVER going to die ?

If we think Sean is waiting for his mom to die before he comes out about being molested by MJ then it makes sense many of the other victims are also witing for their own prents to die.
Not only dead parents, but dead Joe and Katherine Jackson, more time to pass for MJ's music to become even MORE outdated than it already is. And when the victims get to be middle aged with their own kids and more life experience and maturity under their belts, they won't require as much courage that Wade and James obviously have.
I expect to see many, many Jacko victims come forward in the next 15-20 years.
MJ and his estate will not win at the long game. He I'll remembered for the despicable person he was.

I don't know if MJ molested Sean or Macaulay but I can almost understand why they wouldn't want to speak out:
MJ's crazy fans.
They are unhinged. I wouldn't want to deal with them. Just reading their posts is terrifying. All the caps. The exclamation points. The weird pictures they use of Michael for their avatars. Literally terrifying.

He's always looked "off", so being on the spectrum makes sense. Plus, Linda & Paul were big potheads, so he probably has whatever the pot equivalent is of fetal alcohol syndrome (fetal pot syndrome?)

I was sexually molested by a older girl when I was small. I can’t remember what happened but I do know it sexualized me at a very young age. I will never tell my mom because it would upset her that she left me alone with this kid at such a young age.. Plus I don’t have enough details so I just prefer to leave it alone, especially since it is just fodder for people to assume it explains my being gay. It had nothing to do with it..
