MJ's accuser claims he wants to raise awareness about child abuse with the new documentary

Wade Robson, who used to be Michael Jackson’s backup dancer when he was a child, is involved in a new child molestation documentary with the purpose of “raising awareness.”


Robson’s story is one of a kind. In the past, when Jackson was accused of child molestation, he would often appear on TV shows defending the King of Pop saying that Jackson never molested him.

The dancer and choreographer, who has worked with different celebrities throughout the years, even was a witness in Jackson’s 2005 trial, when he defended the singer on oath, leading to a “not guilty” outcome.



However, when Robson married and had a son, everything changed. He revealed that Jackson molested him regularly and even filed a lawsuit against him and his estate, claiming that several members of Jackson’s team knew about the alleged abuse and brought the children to him.


Robson said,

“Michael was an incredible singer, songwriter, dancer, performer, and he was also a child predator, a child sexual abuser.”


After all the years Robson kept the reported abuse a secret, he joined another man who accused Jackson of molestation, James Safechuck, and took part in the documentary titled “Leaving Neverland,” referring to Jackson’s Neverland Ranch located in Los Olivos, California.


According to the summary that Sundance Film Festival shared, both men tell the story of how the King of Pop sexually abused them at the age of seven and ten, “and how they came to terms with it years later.”

TMZ ran into Robson at Los Angeles Airport and had a brief conversation with him, asking some questions about the documentary and what his goal was. The man pointed out that his intention was not necessarily mute Jackson but to raise awareness on child molestation.


“It’s beyond Michael, now. I can’t change what happened to me, but what I can do now is try to make a small impact on what happens to others. So, really for me is about awareness towards helping survivors and prevention,” said Robson.


Apart from that, he admitted that he didn’t care about Jackson’s legal team defending him and saying that the documentary shows false claims and that he and Safechuck were liars. “They’re gonna say whatever they feel they need to say, and that’s fine. It’s not about them; it’s about everyone else.”



Jackson’s estate released a statement addressing the film in mid-January that read,

“This is yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson. Wade Robson and James Safechuck have both testified under oath that Michael never did anything inappropriate toward them.”

“Leaving Neverland” premiered today (January 25, 2019) at the Sundance Film Festival.
