Sadly, Michael Jackson didn’t just groom boys, he also groomed the parents to do his bidding. One such person was Joy Robson, mother of another of Michael Jackson’s “special friends”, Wade Robson. During court testimony in 2005 she was questioned about an event around the time the explosive Chandler allegations came to light.
After admitting she received a $10,000 gift from MJ towards the purchase of a car, she was questioned about a late night call from MJ:
3 Q. Now, in December of 1993, after the
4 allegations with Jordan Chandler had surfaced, Mr.
5 Jackson came back to the United States, correct?
6 A. Yes.
7 Q. And on — to your knowledge, on the very
8 first night he was back he called your son, correct?
9 A. He called me.
10 Q. He called you?
11 A. I think so. From memory.
12 Q. Do you remember testifying that you weren’t
13 at the house when the call was made, that you were
14 out with some ladies?
15 A. I do remember reading that, I’m sorry.
16 Q. So you weren’t there?
17 A. Possibly.
18 Q. You came home, and then both of you, late in
19 the night, drove to Neverland Valley Ranch, correct?
20 A. Correct.
21 Q. When you got to Neverland Valley Ranch, it
22 was about 1:30 in the morning, correct?
23 A. Correct.
24 Q. When you got there, you went to the guest
25 quarters and your son went to Mr. Jackson’s bedroom,
27 A. I don’t remember where I slept, but he did
28 go to Michael’s bedroom.
Later in her testimony, she describes how she would deliver her son to Michael Jackson’s bed in Los Angeles late at night:
13 Q. Now, at the time that you came over here for
14 the L.A. Gear commercial, you were staying in The
15 Holiday Inn?
16 A. Yes. In Westwood.
17 Q. And you were here for approximately six
19 A. Yes.
20 Q. And Mr. Jackson had a condo right across the
22 A. Yes.
23 Q. And you testified before, I believe, that
24 during that six-week period on at least half of the
25 occasions that your son was with Mr. Jackson in Mr.
26 Jackson’s bedroom in that condo, correct?
27 A. I think so.
28 Q. And on a couple of those occasions, you
1 actually were in the condo with them and you and
2 your daughter, or you, slept on the floor; do you
3 recall that?
4 A. I think that was the first trip that my
5 daughter and I slept on the floor. It wasn’t during
6 that time.
7 Q. The first trip back in January?
8 A. Yes.
9 Q. Was there a time that you visited Mr.
10 Jackson in his condo in January?
11 A. Yes.
12 Q. Now, these visits to The Holiday — these
13 visits to Mr. Jackson when you were staying at The
14 Holiday Inn, many of those calls from Mr. Jackson
15 were very late at night; isn’t that correct?
16 A. Yes, he was working.
17 MR. SNEDDON: Move to strike as
18 nonresponsive, Your Honor.
19 THE COURT: I’ll strike the last — after
21 Q. BY MR. SNEDDON: And he would call, and on
22 some occasions you would walk your son across the
23 street, correct?
24 A. Yes.
25 Q. And you’d leave him there and go back to the
27 A. Yes.
28 Q. And there was just he and Mr. Jackson
2 A. Yes.

4 in time, that he was sleeping with Mr. Jackson in
5 Mr. Jackson’s bed, correct?
