Late Singer Michael Jackson Accused of Another "Sex Abuse" Incident
Michael Jackson may have died nearly four years ago, but his legal problems continue.
The late singer and "King of Pop" even continues to maintain an attorney. Now, another person has come forward to accuse the singer of molestation, and it is one of his former defenders: Wade Robson.
The 30-year-old choreographer from Australia spoke in defense of Jackson during a 2005 sex abuse investigation. Robson has known Jackson ever since he was a boy and like many other children spent the night at Jackson's famous "Neverland" estate. He was seven at time. Robson's attorney claims that his client's knowledge of the abuse was suppressed and only came to the surface recently when he collapsed under stress.
Robson is said to have also suffered intimidation by Jackson to keep silent on the abuse. Robson has chosen to come forward and make a claim on damages from Jackson's estate, but his attorney says he has no financial motive.
Jackson's estate attorney, Howard Weitzman, calls the accusations "outrageous and pathetic". Robson has worked in the past with Britney Spears and "N Sync". He was even a judge in the US version of reality TV show "So You Think You Can Dance".
