Michael Jackson's Friend Wade Robson Claims He Was Molested At Neverland
Michael Jackson's estate have another potential court fight on their hands.
Michael Jackson has been accused of molesting a famous choreographer who spent time at the singer's Neverland Ranch as a child. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ.com, Wade Robson is seeking damages from the Michael Jackson Estate for childhood sexual abuse.
Robson - now 30-years-old - has worked with many of the biggest names in pop music, including Britney Spears, NSYNC, Usher and Pink. You may also remember him from his appearances on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' He first met Michael when he was just 5-years-old and they developed a friendship that lasted for several years. By the time Wade was 7 he was regularly having sleepovers at Michael's Neverland residence as well as the singer's home in Los Angeles And Las Vegas. The sleepovers continued until Wade at 14.
The choreographer's lawyer filed legal documents on May 1 asking the judge in the Michael Jackson case to allow him to file a late creditor's claim against the Estate. In the documents, Wade's lawyer says he submitted a never-before filed complaint for "childhood sexual abuse." His lawyer has filed the actual complaint under seal, meaning it's not available to the public. According to sources, the complaint SPECIFICALLY outlines the alleged abuse that Wade suffered the hands of Michael Jackson.
In the 2005 molestation trial, Jackson's former housekeeper Blanca Francia testified she witnessed Michael Jackson in the shower with Wade when he was 8 or 9 year's old.
