R.I…. Michael Jackson.
No peace in the after-life for the King of Pop…
After the many troubles that have surrounded his family recently, apparently now, a demon from his past has emerged, as Jackson is once again being accused of child molestation.
This time from a man who denied- under oath- that Michael had ever abused him as a child.
The accuser, a noted Australian choreographer, Wade Robson, is now claiming he had repressed memories from his childhood and the time he spent at Neverland Ranch and asking the courts to make an exception and allow him to file a late claim, despite the deadline to file claims against Jackson’s estate have passed since his death in ‘09/
The strangest thing is that thanks to Robson and his family testimony, Michael was able to be acquitted of the child molestation charges he faced back in ’05.
If you can remember, Robson was the little boy, who a housekeeper who worked at Neverland Ranch, had said she had seen bathing naked with the pop star, something Robson then said wasn’t true, but admitted to having slept in the same bed with the pop star and that Michael would kiss him on the cheek when he was a kid.
Michael’s legal team has been left dumbfounded with the new accusations, calling them “absurd”.
“He was one of the strongest witnesses for the defense at Michael Jackson’s criminal trial in 2005. He was adamant under oath that he had never been molested at any time,” said to CNN, Tom Mesereau, lawyer who defended Jackson in ’05.
Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for Jackson’s estate, also lashed out at Robson, saying to TMZ that Michael “never did anything inappropriate to him or with him.”
“This 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.”
