Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Rigged Tvs To Block Child Abuse Trial
Michael Jackson protected his kids from the horror of his child abuse trial by rigging Tvs in the family home so coverage of the case was blocked.
The Thriller hitmaker made headlines around the world in 2005 when he was dragged before a court in Los Angeles and accused of molesting 13 year old Gavin Arvizo.
The case lasted six months and Jackson was eventually acquitted of all 14 charges, including five of sexually abusing Arvizo, but he was so determined his own three children didn't hear the allegations, he fixed the Tvs at their home.
Jackson's mother Katherine tells Hello! magazine, "He had his Tv fixed so they could only get Disney channels or children's channels. He didn't want them to hear all those lies about him because they didn't understand it.
"I'm sure they've heard them since they've been older, but they were lies and I think the children know that."
