Choreographer Wade Robson has urged the FBI to release secret documents which allege that Michael Jackson paid sex abuse victims $35 million for their silence.
Michael Jackson's child abuse accuser wants the FBI to release damning documents claiming he molested other children.
Choreographer Wade Robson - who has filed a lawsuit against the late King of Pop's estate, alleging he was subject to years of abuse by Michael - has reportedly asked his lawyers to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation about secret files which suggest the singer paid $35 million to silence other abuse victims.
The 30-year-old dancer hopes to bolster his lawsuit, which has been met with scepticism due to Wade's denial that he was molested by Michael - who died in 2009 - during the singer's 2005 child abuse trial, by teaming up with other supposed victims whose families were paid to keep quiet by the 'Thriller' star.

The filmmaker initially pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents in 2006 about the investigation of Pellicano, who was convicted in 2008 of 76 wiretapping counts and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
He then attempted to withdraw the plea, arguing he didn't have adequate legal representation when he confessed to hiring Pellicano to illegally record movie producer Charles Roven's phone conversations.
The case moved forward in July (10), when MCTiernan pleaded guilty to two counts of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He also pleaded guilty to one count of perjury for lying to a federal judge while trying to withdraw a guilty plea.

On Monday (12Jul10) the filmmaker entered his plea to two charges of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and one allegation of perjury for lying to a federal judge.
MCTiernan's lawyer S. Todd Neal argues that the FBI "ambushed" MCTiernan in a bid to get answers.
Neal tells the Associated Press, "We continue to believe that the charges against him were developed in an unfair way. The FBI should not be in the business of ambushing citizens with surprise phone calls in which they ask 'questions' for which they already know the answers."

A former phone company worker has been sentenced to three-and-a-half years in prison after she was convicted of lying to authorities during the wiretapping case against disgraced Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano.
Pellicano was found guilty of illegally recording the calls of stars including Sylvester Stallone in 2008 and was sentenced to 15 years behind bars.
But the FBI's investigation was hindered by Joann Wiggan, who was found guilty on two counts of perjury and one charge of making a false statement after she lied to officers about information she handed to her former colleague, Pellicano's accomplice Ray Turner, as they tried to build their case.
During a Los Angeles court appearance on Monday (22Feb10), U.S. District Judge Dale S. Fisher said she "engaged for years in the calculated obstruction and perversion of the court process".

According to documents filed at Los Angeles' County Superior Court on Friday (18Dec09) and obtained by TMZ.com, Michael Davis Sapir claims that Pellicano bugged his phone on the orders of his client - Tom Cruise.
It is not the first time Sapir and Cruise have come up against each other in the courts - in 2001, the superstar sued Sapir after he alleged to have video evidence that the actor was in a gay relationship.
They settled out of court that same year (01), and both stated that the tape never existed.

A former phone company worker is facing 15 years behind bars for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) while agents investigated allegations Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano wiretapped several high-profile clients.
On Monday (02Nov09) Joann Wiggan was found guilty of three charges of perjury in relation to false information she handed to officers who were trying to build a case against Pellicano, who was found guilty of illegally listening into the calls of stars including Sylvester Stallone last year (08).

Shamed Hollywood private investigator Anthony Pellicano has been sentenced to three years in prison for threatening a Los Angeles Times journalist.
The detective and his associate Alexander Proctor pleaded no contest in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday (23Oct09) after they were accused of intimidating reporter Anita Busch, who was working on a story about Steven Seagal's possible links to organised crime, reports the Associated Press.
The actor denied hiring Pellicano and wasn't charged in the case.
Proctor is alleged to have placed a dead fish with a rose in its mouth on Busch's car, put a bullet-sized hole in her windshield, and wrote a note saying 'Stop' in 2002 - all on Pellicano's orders.
