Robson Denies Being Abused By Jackson

MICHAEL JACKSON's choreographer friend WADE ROBSON yesterday (05MAY05) denied in court that the THRILLER star sexually abused him more than a decade ago - after a former Neverland maid testified she saw Jackson showering with him.

Robson told defence lawyer THOMAS MESEREAU he had never been molested or groped by the troubled singer, but confessed he regularly shared Jackson's bed, but stopped sleeping with the star when he was 13 or 14.

The 22-year-old Australian also contradicted Jackson's ex-house keeper BIANCA FRANCIA's prosecution testimony that she caught Jackson showering with him when he was just eight-years-old.

Prosecutor RON ZONEN asked, "Have you ever crawled into bed with another man in his 30s before?"

Robson replied, "No."

Mesereau added, "Did Michael Jackson molest you at any time?"

Robson responded, "Absolutely not."

Robson - who has choreographed routines for BRITNEY SPEARS and JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE - was the first defence witness at the Santa Maria, California trial, and is expected to be followed by HOME ALONE star MACAULAY CULKIN and another Australian man, who will also refute claims they were abused by Jackson as children.

Jackson has pleaded not guilty to 10 felony charges of child molestation, administering an intoxicating agent and conspiracy involving allegations of child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion.

The trial continues.
