Michael Jackson - Lawyer For Michael Jackson's Estate Blasts Latest Molestation Claim

A lawyer for Michael Jackson's estate has slammed allegations the late King of Pop molested Wade Robson when he was a child after the choreographer filed suit last week (ends03May13).

Robson, who has worked with stars including Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake has asked a California judge to allow him to make a late creditor's claim against Jackson's estate for "childhood sexual abuse".

Jackson's estate attorney Howard Weitzman has now blasted Robson's allegation, pointing out that he took to the stand at the singer's 2005 child molestation trial to deny he had ever been molested by the Thriller hitmaker during several sleepovers.

In a statement to Tmz.com, Weitzman says, "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.

"Now, nearly 4 years after Michael has passed, this sad and less than credible claim has been made. We are confident that the court will see this for what it is."

Jackson died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in 2009.

ROBSON: Absolutely not. MESEREAU: Mr. Robson, did Michael Jackson ever touch you in a sexual way? ROBSON: Never, no. MESEREAU: Mr. Robson, has Mr. Jackson ever inappropriately touched any part of your body at any time? ROBSON: No. (p 9097 lines 18-27) ZONEN: Was your sister there the entire time during that week as well? ROBSON: Yes. ZONEN: Was she in that bed with you as well? ROBSON: Yes. (p 9106 lines 17-21) ZONEN: Did you talk with your mother, prior to that first week that you slept with Mr. Jackson with your sister, about the sleeping arrangements at all? ROBSON: Well, yeah, the first day that we got there, to Neverland Ranch -- you know, I think we got there in about the afternoon. We hung out a bit. When it was time to go bed, I asked Michael if I could stay with him in his room. And then Michael and I went to -- mom was staying in a guest room. We went to her room and I asked her. Michael asked her if that was okay. And she said yes. (p 9108 lines 14-24) Robson testified that he asked Jackson if he could stay in his “bedroom” because “when you have a best friend or a new friend that you found, you always want to stay in the same room with them” (p 9109 lines 2-5). ZONEN: When Mr. Jackson stayed with you at your Hollywood apartment, how old were you? ROBSON: I would say 11 or 12. ZONEN: Did he share your bed with you at that time? ROBSON: Yes. ROBSON: All right. There was one bed that you had in your room; is that correct? ZONEN: No, it was actually -- it was a -- like a futon that was our couch down in the living room. (p 9144 lines 12-20) ZONEN: You’re telling us nothing happened; is that right? ROBSON: Yes. ZONEN: All right. What you’re really telling us is nothing happened while you were awake; isn’t that true? ROBSON: I’m telling you that nothing ever happened. ZONEN: Mr. Robson, when you were asleep, you wouldn’t have known what had happened, particularly at age seven, would you have? ROBSON: I would think something like that would wake me up. (p 9116 lines 16-27) ZONEN: Was there ever an occasion where you were on the dance floor with Mr. Jackson and he was showing you a routine and he grabbed your crotch in a manner similar to how he would grab his own crotch while doing those performances? ROBSON: No, that’s not true. ZONEN: You have no recollection of that? ROBSON: No. ZONEN: That didn’t happen? ROBSON: No. (p 9112 lines 20-28; p 9113 line 1) MESEREAU: Have you ever taken a shower with Mr. Jackson? ROBSON: No. … MESEREAU: Has anything inappropriate ever happened in any shower with you and Mr. Jackson? ROBSON: No. Never been in a shower with him. (p 9100 lines 17-19; p 9101 lines 10-12)
