The King of Pop will forever reign in our hearts and minds. Michael Jackson dedicated his entire life to the entertainment industry, and we’re grateful for the glittery gloved genius. The impeccable dancing, and thought provoking music is incomparable. In the wake of Michael’s untimely death, Dr. Conrad Murray’s arrest, Paris Jackson’s attempted suicide, Jermaine’s Jackson’s name change (he’s now “Jack-sun”) Janet Jackson’s marriage, and La Toya Jackson’s reality spotlight on the OWN network- nasty rumors of the pop icon’s Sandusky ish ways continue to haunt entertainment headlines.
MJ’s die hard fans rallied against the scandals accusing the Billie Jean hit maker of being a boy lover. Jackson was a Thriller for gossip headlines. Fans from around the world Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin, and danced to pay tribute to the Dirty Diana diamond. We cried at his shows. He never signed up to be the globe GOAT, but it’s what God ordained. Despite being dubbed ‘Wacko Jacko’ by critics, his beautiful kids, and an award winning music career, the icon is most known for being addicted to friendships with prepubescent boys.
Michael Jackson is a musical God, but nobody is perfect. We’ve sadly listed 9 reasons why the billion dollar baby, may have actually been a pedophile.
#9. Wade Robson is a star in his own right, but all on the heels of his connection with the King of Pop. Robson, a professional choreographer and dancer, shared his pain with Matt Lauer . “This is not a case of repressed memory. I never forgot one moment of what Michael did to me… But I was psychologically and emotionally unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse. He sexually abused me from seven years old until 14. He performed sexual acts on me, and forced me to perform sexual acts on him. He was a pedophile.”
Robson denied getting his penis pecked in the 2005 molestation trial. After Michael died, the truth came rolling out in court documents filed by the So You Think You Can Dance judge and dancer. Eventually, “(Jackson) began showing me explicit adult pornography in the form of magazines, books and videos,” Robson said. “He also encouraged me to call him ‘Dad’, and he would call me ‘Son’. From the first instance of abuse, (Jackson) began telling me that ‘we can never tell anyone what we are doing. People are ignorant and they would never understand that we love each other and this is how we show it. If anyone were to ever find out, our lives and careers would be over,’” he reluctantly admitted to the court.
Robson said the abuse stopped only when he hit puberty, and Jackson lost interest.
#8. ‘Leaked’ documents sent the showbiz industry into a frenzy when sticky details claimed the Dancing Machine installed a child sex alarm. Quite naturally the sinfully rich pop star had to protect Neverland Ranch with alarms and security. This alarm however, supposedly alerted Jackson if anyone came within 30 feet of his bedroom. According to the documents, he also plastered a “do not disturb” sign to keep from being caught.
#7. Why did Michael feel it was necessary to hire Anthony Pellicano ? The FBI seized secret files from the investigative big wig, including case files CADCE MJ-02463 and CR 01046 . Reports claim Elizabeth Taylor recommended the private investigator. He kept copies of FBI documents naming 17 boys – including five child actors and two dancers – Jacko targeted for abuse. Apparently, Jackson needed lawyers and private eyes to gather up potential threats to his career.
#6. In 1993, Michael Jackson was accused of sexually abusing Jordan Chandler. His dad, Evan Chandler, had the haunting feeling his son had been abused after befriending the Black or White superstar. Jordan’s mom ignored the claims, and the Chandler camp refused a 350k settlement offered to shush their traps. After the allegations slaughtered the headlines, Michael’s health began to decline. A mega cash settlement was reached a year later. Unfortunately, Jordan Chandler, committed suicide just 5 months after Michael’s mysterious death.
#5. La Toya Jackson is not her brother’s keeper. The elder sister of the media target embarrassed the entire Jackson crew when she claimed to have evidence of the entertainment guru’s sex with boys. “I cannot and will not be a silent collaborator in his crimes against young children … Forget about the superstar, forget about the icon. If he was any other 35-year-old man who was sleeping with little boys, you wouldn’t like this guy”. She felt that her brother’s childhood bullying turned him into an abusive monster, and even stated that several checks had been written out to the kids’ families to cover his abuse.
#4. It was heart wrenching to watch Michael Jackson lean on drugs to numb the pain of the horrible accusations. He lost weight, and apparently became engulfed in prescription drugs. He never really had a solid relationship with any woman. Since we know the King of Pop could have any girl he’d like, he proved that maybe the top is too lonely by never settling down. Tatum Oneal was his childhood sweetie, and he and Brooke Shields decided to just be friends. He married Lisa Marie Presley during the height of his first sexual abuse allegations, and was high when he proposed, according to Lisa. It was a short marriage. Debbie Rowe snuggled up to the star while working as his dermatologist and trying to treat his Vitiligo. Rowe is the mother of his 2 oldest kids (Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson, Jr. and daughter Paris Michael Katherine Jackson). He also had a very short lived marriage to her. Prince Michael II, affectionately known as “Blanket”, was born through an unknown surrogate.
#3. Macaulay Culkin met Michael well before he filmed Home Alone. Their friendship was well publicized, but fizzled as Culkin grew up. Macaulay swears Jackson never touched him, but the pop sensation was hooked on filming home video of the child star. Jackson enjoyed acting like a kid with Macaulay. He ended up defending Michael in the infamous trial. Phillip LeMarque, Jackson’s cook, testified that he saw Michael groping Macaulay. “Michael was playing with Macaulay Culkin at one of the games, Thriller. He was holding the kid — he was small, he probably couldn’t reach the controls. His left hand was inside the pants of the kid … down into the pants … in the crotch area,” LeMarque said. “I was shocked. I almost dropped the french fries.” The National Enquirer recently reported Culkin now has a $6000-a-month drug habit and that he is hooked on ‘hillbilly heroin’ these days.
#2. Marlon Brando was a close friend of Michael’s. The actor’s son, Miko, was Jackson’s bodyguard for many years, and was also a friend of the singer. He stated, “The last time my father left his house to go anywhere, to spend any kind of time… was with Michael Jackson”. Stella (Phillip LeMarque’s wife) said that of all of Jackson’s adult friends, only Marlon Brando protested. “He’d come to the ranch and always see Michael playing, and disappear with the children,” Stella said. “Michael would never spend time with the adults at the ranch. … [Brando] said, ‘What the hell is Michael doing with those kids!’”
#1. MJ was actually charged with child molestation,conspiracy and supplying a minor with alcohol (People v. Jackson). In an interview with Martin Bashir, Jackson admitted to sharing his bed with children. He also exposed his love for Peter Pan, and his fascination with youth. When asked why he was so desperate to remain involved with children, the singer replied “my greatest inspiration comes from kids”. Then Bashir admitted to feeling uneasy about what he viewed as an ‘apparent obsession with kids’. Bashir even threatened to confront Jackson on certain areas of his life that he felt Jackson had been too vague about disclosing. Bashir continue pelting the prescription drug addict with questions, demanding his explanation for allowing kids to share his bedroom. Jackson defended himself stating that such activity is natural when the children are of close friends or family, and that “many children”, including the Culkin family children (Macaulay and Kieran) have slept in the same bed as him.
Jackson was eventually found not guilty of all the charges, but what do you think? Was AEG responsible for Jackson’s death? Was Michael Jackson a pedophile?
