Wade Robson Calls Michael Jackson A Pedophile On Today
By Mack Rawden 2013-05-16 15:10:34
Wade Robson spoke publically about his sexual abuse claims against Michael Jackson for the first time this morning on Today, and the noted choreographer and onetime MJ protégé certainly didn’t pull any punches. Referring to the singer as a pedophile, Robson outlined what he claimed was a pattern of abuse and systematic mental manipulation that forced him not only to be silent about what actually happened but to lie under oath on at least two occasions.
If Robson is to be believed, between the ages of seven and fourteen, Jackson repeatedly forced himself on the boy and explained to him that what they were doing was actually an expression of their love. Earlier this week, it was reported that a mental breakdown caused the dancer to recover memories, but now, Robson says those memories were there all along and he simply didn’t realize what happened was wrong until he had a child and started examining the history.
Robson was very adamant during his interview that what he’s been saying has nothing to do with the money he could potentially receive from the lawsuit, but obviously, there is a lawsuit and he could potentially make millions from it. As for where the truth lies, it’s extremely difficult to know for sure considering all of these allegations happened decades ago.
We’ll keep you updated as the case makes its way through the court system.
