In 2005, Wade Robson was the first defense witness at Michael Jackson’s trial, where the singer was accused of molesting a 13-year-old cancer survivor. At the time, Robson was unequivocal: He was not sexually abused by the man known as the King of Pop. But eight years later, he has changed his tune.
Exclusively on TODAY Thursday, the 30-year-old choreographer told Matt Lauer that Jackson, who died in 2009, was “a pedophile and a child sexual abuser.” Robson said Jackson abused him from ages 7 to 14: Jackson “performed sexual acts on me and forced me to perform sexual acts on him.”
Robson is currently asking a probate court to allow him to file a late creditor’s claim against the Jackson estate, now that the deadline has passed for creditors to file such claims. His claim comes as a case brought by Jackson’s family against AEG Live, promoters of his final concert tour, has begun in civil court.
