Could new evidence presented by an Australian choreographer against Michael Jackson disprove the King of Pop’s acquittal?
Fans celebrated the 58th birthday of the King of Pop last August 29. The occasion also marked the release of a book in his honor. Author Shana Mangatal hoped the memories she shared with him would overcome the myth and controversies surrounding him even after his death.
To this day, the child molestation charges brought against him in court remain attached to his memory. Nevertheless, his family remain steadfast in their conviction about his innocence in the matter. Even his fans are prepared to stand up in defense of the King of Pop’s legacy. However, could new evidence presented by a previous witness in his favor turn the tide?
Australian choreographer Wade Robson reportedly filed a lawsuit against two companies of Michael Jackson. Best known for his works with Britney Spears and in NSync music videos, Robson was also part of the So You Think Can Dance TV series. He met Michael Jackson when he was five years old. At the time, he had won a dance competition Down Under and earned the attention of the King of Pop. According to his complaint, MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures were instrumental to an operation that brought young children to MJ then.
“MJJ Productions operated the most sophisticated child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation operation the world has known. Although MJJ Productions on its face was a multimedia company dedicated to creating and distributing Michael Jackson’s music and entertainment, it actually served a dual purpose, and that was locating, producing and enabling his sexual abuse of kids.” 9news cited an interview of Robson’s lawyer Vince Finaldi with the New York Daily News.
Robson and his family received an invitation to Neverland when he was 7 years old. He claimed the abuse started then and only stopped when he reached 14 years of age. The Australian choreographer filed his complaint as the statute of limitations had already passed on his earlier claim.
