I really don’t know what this dude stands to gain by coming up with this story now but I do think it’s a trifle belated. Just saying.
Robson denied any abuse in the 2005 molestation trial against the pop star, contradicting testimony by a maid that told the court she saw Robson with Jackson in the shower.
Wade Robson, the first defense witness in Michael Jackson’s child molestation trial, exits the Santa Barbara County Superior Courthouse in Santa Maria, California with wife Amanda Rodriguez following his testimony on May 5, 2005. He has reversed his position and said he was molested by the pop star, according to new court claim.
Dancer Wade Robson, 30, is asking a Los Angeles judge for permission to file a late claim against the dead singer’s estate and an order to seal an “unfiled complaint for childhood sexual abuse,” a motion filed last Wednesday states.
Michael Jackson and his mother Katherine Jackson leave court after the first day of defense testimony at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse in Santa Maria, California, May 5, 2005.
Robson, an established choreographer and producer who’s also worked with Justin Timberlake and Demi Lovato, was a regular sleepover companion of the “Thriller” singer in the late ’80s and early ’90s after their meeting in Australia when he was just 5 years old.
He testified at Jackson’s 2005 molestation trial that he shared the pop star’s bed a few times as a boy but was “never” sexually abused.
A choreographer has posthumously accused Michael Jackson of child sex abuse in a civil claim filed by Wade Robson, who spent time at Jacko’s Neverland Ranch when he was a child.
Giving uneasy testimony in Santa Barbara County, Robson denied an ex-maid’s claim that she caught Jackson showering naked with him.
Wade Robson denied abuse during the 2005 molestation against Michael Jackson but now says it did happen when he was about 8 years old in 1989 or 1990.
The maid, Blanca Francia, recalled seeing Robson’s tiny “green-neon” underwear on the bathroom floor next to Jackson’s white cotton briefs and hearing the duo “laughing and playing around.”
She said she could make out the figures of Jackson and a “little kid” but couldn’t confirm they were touching due to the “cloudy” haze of steam.

Wade Robson, age 10, defends Michael Jackson and his stays at the pop star’s ranch as he and mom Joy Robson are interviewed.
Unidentified sources told TMZ that the new complaint details alleged abuse at the hands of Jackson.
The filing mentions involvement by Dr. David Arredondo, a famous child psychiatrist working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Attempts to reach Robson and his lawyer were not immediately successful.
A lawyer for Jackson’s beloved mom was critical of the new claim late Tuesday.
“This is really absurd,” lawyer Perry Sanders told the Daily News.
Sanders said he spoke to Tom Mesereau, Michael’s criminal defense lawyer, and felt confident the claim was bogus.
“Look, his mom and sister were at the (molestation) trial and said it was absolutely ridiculous,” Sanders said.
