Wade Robson Claims Michael Jackson Ran Elaborate Child Sex Abuse Operation In New Lawsuit
Wade Robson, the choreographer who alleges that Michael Jackson sexually abused him as a child, has now claimed that the King of Pop ran an elaborate child sex abuse operation in a new lawsuit.
Wade Robson’s Michael Jackson Lawsuit
Robson, 33, has amended a previous complaint alleging abuse to claim that Jackson’s abuse of young children was carefully orchestrated. According to the filing, Jackson operated a sophisticated child sex abuse operation with the help of MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures.
Robson’s lawyer Vince Finaldi claims that MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures served “dual purposes,” going beyond the role of creating and disseminating Jackson’s music.
“MJJ Productions operated the most sophisticated child sexual abuse procurement and facilitation operation the world has known,” Finaldi told the New York Daily News. “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.”
Finaldi added, “Make no mistake, Neverland Ranch [Jackson’s home] was nothing but a well-orchestrated trap. It was custom-built to attract kids so he could groom them and decide which to sexually abuse.”
Robson claims that he was first introduced to Jackson when he was only 7-years-old, two years after he won a dance competition organized by MJJ Ventures in Australia. He further alleges that he was abused by Jackson on his first visit to Neverland Ranch and for eight years thereafter.
Back in 2005, during Jackson’s high-profile molestation trial, Robson testified that he was not sexually abused by Jackson. He recanted several years later, but his allegations were dismissed after a judge determined that he’d waited too long to sue. Robson has since filed lawsuits against MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures for negligence.
Robson’s trial was scheduled to commence in March 2017. With the new complaint, the trial date will be pushed back.
