On May 1, 2013 Wade Robson filed a creditor’s claim against Michael Jackson’s Estate and a civil lawsuit against Jackson and two of his companies, MJJ Productions and MJJ Ventures, demanding monetary compensation for alleged childhood sexual abuse by Jackson. This was a shocker, since Robson previously had talked about his relationship with Jackson many, many times – whether in Court under oath at Jackson’s 2005 trial, in police interviews and in front of a Grand Jury in 1993-1994, or in the media and other platforms – and always defended the star against such allegations and denied that anything like that had ever happened to him.
So what happened?
In this part of the website we will lead you through the process of Robson’s change of his story, I will summarize the legal side of his creditor’s claim (Probate Court Case) and civil lawsuit and will address some other issues regarding his case.
I understand that this is a long read, but it is impossible to discuss complex cases in short soundbites. To know the complexity of such a case you need to invest some time into it.
