Wade Robson went on the Today Show this morning to address the allegations he made against Michael Jackson.
Wade revealed to Matt Lauer that, “Michael performed sexual acts on me and forced me to perform sexual acts on him.” Allegedly, this happened from when Wade was 7 years old until he was 14.
The thing about this situation is that Wade testified in 2005 that Michael had never sexually abused him. Wade claims that he was lying because Michael told him that what they were doing wasn’t wrong and that both of their careers would be over if anyone found out. Still, it’s hard to believe that suddenly after a meltdown leaves him broke and unable to work that he’s not just looking for cash.
Sure, this could have all happened but it’s a lot to take in when you consider the fact that he lied under oath and has waited this long to talk. Guess we’ll just have to see how things pan out.
Famous choreographer Wade Robson (well, let’s be serious, he’s a little washed up now) had a nervous breakdown prior to revealing that he’d been molested by Michael Jackson, allegedly.
Sources close to Wade say that the breakdown he suffered in March 2012 caused a number of problems for him.
The breakdown ruined his career and pushed him into seclusion. After the breakdown he was unable to work and breached a number of contracts. The source also says that he “lost a ton of money” and hasn’t earned much since.
Maybe the allegations are true, but this really seems like a case of someone needing money and finding an easy target. People close to Wade say he has “substantial savings”, but I don’t know if that’s true, especially if he hasn’t been working. Wade might not be a liar, but this surely seems like a get rich quick scheme.
After 20 years of denying Michael Jackson ever did anything inappropriate to him, infamous choreographer Wade Robson is now deciding to retract his previous statement to get a couple of bucks, says Howard Weitzman, the lawyer behind the MJ Estate.
Weitzman tells TMZ, “Mr. Robson’s claim is outrageous and pathetic. This is a young man who has testified at least twice under oath over the past 20 years and said in numerous interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him or with him.”
So why go back and change your mind now?
Well, some (myself included) may say because MJ is no longer here to defend himself, the dance choreographer claims he suffered from “repressed memory.”
But, if the man has trouble remembering things, how are we suppose to believe that he remembered something that supposedly happened 20 years ago? Not to mention, there appear to be no witnesses.
However, Robson filed legal documents against the MJ Estate claiming, “Michael molested him when he was a child.” Robson was apparently a frequent guest at his Neverland Ranch between the ages of 7 and 17, TMZ learned.
Despite Robson’s statement, Weitzman tells TMZ, “We are confident that the court will see this for what is it.”
The ongoing struggles of the Jackson family seem to get weirder by the day and the latest developments would seem far-fetched even on a daytime soap.
As of today, it seems that Michael’s nephew TJ Jackson (yes the same TJ who took Kim Kardashian’s virginity) is demanding custody of Michael’s three children, following reports that MJ’s mother, Katherine, is being held in Arizona against her will by other family members.
“I know it’s completely unfair for them to do this to you and your brothers. We will keep trying. I love you,” TJ Tweeted to Paris last night. TMZ reports that all three Jackson children are in favor of TJ becoming their legal guardian. Of course, part of the reason that guardianship of Michael’s kids is so hotly contested is that Michael only left money to his children and his family in his will. Expect this mess to get worse before it gets better.
Kurt Loder, the high brow MTV News reporter who was always out of place on the network, believes that Michael Jackson was a child molester. Appearing on the radio show “Jeff and Jeremy in the Morning,” Kurt dropped some bombs!!
“Its a shame how he grew up … his childhood was a shame … there is many sad aspects to his life, … on the other hand, I think he was a child molester, and that sort of tempers any feelings you might have about him,” Loder said.
Kurt believes that “Having sleepovers with little boys” when you’re 40 means that “You’re like a child molester.” He continued, “Maybe being a child molester is the product of a pretty terrible childhood he had … you can see why that might have happened. On the other hand, molesting children is bad.”
I get livid whenever I hear or read about someone accusing Michael of molesting children. Why is it so hard for people to understand that Michael Jackson was a damaged little boy trapped inside a man’s body? He climbed trees for the love of gawd! What was fun to Michael was not considered to be fun by his peers, but he was just having innocent fun.
Jackson’s hundreds of millions of dollars made him susceptible to false accusations and frivolous lawsuits. If I had the money to silence liars instead of spending time in court, I would pay ‘em off too.
Until we can learn how to stop accepting rumors as fact and stop targeting those that we’re jealous of or simply don’t like, we will never improve as a society.
And this is why I’ve always believed that Michael is better off dead. He just couldn’t catch a break in this lifetime.
The “doctor” who killed Michael Jackson, Conrad Murray was found guilty of manslaughter today. Born in Grenada, Conrad was Michael’s personal physician at the time of his death on June 25, 2009.
Murray gave Jackson a lethal dose of the Propofol, which killed him. Propofol is not supposed to be administered outside of hospitals. Multiple doctors said that had Murray paid close attention to Michael’s reaction, and had called 911 immediately, the pop icon would be alive today.
Murray may be sentenced to serve up to 4 years in jail.
Michael’s fans rejoice! I can’t stand “doctor” Conrad Murray. It is frightening to know that “doctors” like him are in this world practicing everyday. Serves this incompetent loser right.
Because Michael Jackson isn’t supposed to rest in peace, a nude photo of a deceased Michael Jackson was revealed during Dr. Conrad Murray’s televised manslaughter trial. The photo showed Jackson on an autopsy table in 2009. A close-up of the image showed Jackson’s arm with the remnants of an IV hook-up and medical tape.
The images were displayed during the testimony of forensic pathologist Christopher Rogers, who performed the autopsy and determined that Jackson died of a overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol.
Rogers testified that Jackson died because “doctor” Conrad Murray used the powerful anesthetic improperly. It was implausible for Jackson to administer the fatal level during the two minutes that Murray claims he stepped away form the singer.
Hopefully Jackson’s young children don’t see this photo. TMZ lives for this sh!t, which is disgusting. I’m not posting that crap here.
