Last week Michael Jackson’s former protégé and choreographer friend Wade Robson made headlines claiming that he was molested by Michael for seven years when he was a boy.
Michael Jackson fans basically want to kill Wade and almost everyone else believes Wade is lying and is only making these claims for money.
Wade gave an in-depth interview on the "Today" show today and in plain English said, “Michael performed sexual acts on me and forced me to perform sexual acts on him.”
After years of avoiding the topic and defending Jackson, Wade drops this huge bombshell on us.
He says that Michael told him this is what people who loved each other did to one another and that if either of them ever spoke about it, they would go to jail forever. This is what Wade claims kept him quiet as a kid.
But why did Wade testify in 2005 that nothing ever happened to him?
“This is not a case of repressed memory,” Wade told Matt Lauer, “I have never forgotten one moment of what Michael did to me, but I was psychologically and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse.”
He also said, Michael brainwashed him before each trial, “He would role play and train me for these (trial) scenarios.”
Wade also defended himself against the critics who say he’s lying and just wants money.
“The idea that I would make all of this up and put myself, my wife, my entire family through this is extremely incomprehensible.”
“Because I’ve lived in silence and denial for 22 years, I can’t spend another moment in that. In order to truly heal…I’m never going to go away with this. I’m never going to be silenced.”
