Wade Robson Interview

New Accuser – Wade Robson
A brief story on Wade and Jackson
Wade Robson’s testimony from the 2005 molestation trial

Wade Robson brands Michael Jackson a pedophile and child sexual abuser.

0:00
but this morning we begin this half hour with a new claim from Wade Robson,
0:03
Michael Jackson’s former protege and long-time defender, a claim that the pop
0:08
star molested him for years. trying to talk to wade in a moment exclusively but
0:12
first a story
0:14
for years dancer and fame choreographer wade robson spoke of his one-time friend
0:19
and mentor michael jackson
0:21
with only admiration
0:23
peseta wonderful relationship i learned so much from him as an artist
0:27
and as the kind you want to
0:29
insight in two thousand five when jackson was acquitted of the only
0:32
molestation charges ever faced in court
0:34
robson was a star defense witness
0:37
he was an adult he was intelligent he was articulate
0:40
and he was adamant that nothing encore it had ever happened when he was with
0:45
michael jackson
0:47
but now robson is making a belated claim against jackson to state because his
0:50
lawyers said jackson was a sexual predator
0:53
and robson last year collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what
0:57
happened to him for seven years as a child
1:00
in my opinion this is all about greed and money
1:03
but child-abuse experts say that way it’s belated accusation is not uncommon
1:08
that sexually abuse children often take decades to with knowledge of peace
1:13
tragically this is a very very common
1:15
story study after study after study
1:18
and child sexual abuse has shall
1:20
their it takes adulthood for many victims to come forward
1:24
and that it is it very possible that even kids in their twenties do not
1:29
understand at a crime was committed against them
1:32
jackson’s estate says rob since claims are outrageous and have no credibility
1:37
good morning compared to see you you know that the things you’re going to say
1:40
here this morning and perhaps in a court of law
1:43
are going to get a lot of attention make a lot of headlines so before i ask you
1:46
specifics what your mindset right now
1:49
lets my mind set uh…
1:51
i feel strong
1:53
i feel
1:55
like this is the right thing to do
1:56
because this is my truth despite what some people may say after you say these
2:00
things yeah
2:01
we take you back to two thousand five waiting right the child molestation
2:03
trial of michael jackson
2:06
you were the first witness called by the defense in the attorney for michael
2:09
jackson said he called you first
2:11
because you’re so convincing and powerful asserting the innocence of
2:15
michael jackson and here we are the issues later and you’re going to say
2:20
just the opposite
2:24
first of all one thing i want to clear up is that this is not a case of
2:27
repressed memory
2:29
and it has been reported in the u_s_ i’m i’m never forgot one moment of what
2:33
michael did to me
2:35
but i was
2:36
psychologically and emotionally completely unable
2:39
an unwilling
2:41
to understand there was sexual abuse so what are you alleging that he actually
2:44
did
2:46
he sexually abused me from
2:47
seven years old until fourteen and though it’s a it’s a
2:51
it’s a difficult and personal question but can you be more specific because
2:54
you’re accusing
2:55
someone who’s deceased of criminal activity
2:58
yet so i need you to be a little more specific it did he perform sexual acts
3:03
on you did he force u to perform sexual acts on him what was the nature of the
3:08
abuse
3:10
exactly what he said he performs sexual acts on me
3:13
unfortunate before sexual acts on it
3:15
how old were you when it started
3:17
and how long did it last so about fourteen
3:21
deed when you testified in two thousand five
3:25
and you took the stand you raise your right hand and he swore under oath that
3:29
nothing
3:30
sexual ever happened between you and michael jackson
3:33
why did you lie
3:36
you know i said
3:37
what i understood and i said what i was able to say
3:42
seven years old from day one of the abuse
3:46
michael told me that we loved each other
3:48
and that this was love that this was a an expression
3:51
of our love
3:52
and then you follow that up with
3:54
you know but if you ever tell
3:56
what we’re doing
3:58
of our lives
4:00
and our careers will be over
4:02
uh… when i was eleven when the first
4:04
uh… trials going on the criminal investigation in ninety three
4:08
uh… he would call me every day in role play and and and tell me the same sort
4:11
of things and also tell me then
4:13
if anyone ever thought
4:15
that we did these things any of the sexual things that both of us
4:18
would go to jail
4:19
for the rest of them when you testified in two thousand five did it did michael
4:22
jackson or anyone working for him offer you money
4:26
to say the things you said did they tell you you must lie on the stand at that
4:29
time
4:30
there’s no money there was no ps
4:32
you must light michael
4:35
when he would talk to me
4:36
before these things were going on and he would call me
4:38
everyday as these things were happening it was
4:42
manipulation and brainwashing it was in any sense of the truth on the phone he
4:46
would role play with me and training
4:49
for these scenarios
4:50
you know i i i usse it’s not repressed memories so u always knew and had in
4:55
your mind what happened between you and michael jackson
4:58
you also say that when you finally had a son of your own
5:01
that it was looking at that son
5:04
that made you think if anyone ever did to your son what michael jackson did
5:09
to and with you
5:11
you kill that person
5:12
there during it and i i’m the father and i became a father two-and-a-half years
5:15
ago six beautiful baby boy
5:17
and um… during the first eighteen months of his life and collapsed into
5:20
two members breakdowns
5:22
terrifying their respect and at that point i have no idea what was wrong with
5:25
it what was going on
5:27
during the second one
5:28
this thing happened when i started looking at him in a matching
5:31
him being a victim of the sexual abuse that i was at the hands of michael
5:35
and for the first time in my life began to realized that my completely num
5:41
and unexplored feelings in relation to what michael good to me
5:44
might be a problem and maybe i did speak to someone about it howard weitzman is a
5:48
lawyer for the jackson st said this in a statement mister robson has adamantly
5:52
denied under oath and in numerous interviews over the past twenty years
5:56
that michael jackson ever did anything inappropriate to hunt now he wants us to
6:00
believe that he committed perjury atleast twice and has been lying to
6:03
anyone and everyone about mister jackson since the early nineteen nineties so we
6:08
can file a claim for money mister robson strands parent lawsuit comes nearly four
6:12
years after michael past his claim is outrageous and sat jermaine jackson
6:17
michael’s brother said wade robson is full of
6:20
and then used in expletive which a response
6:25
understand completely
6:27
how hard it is to understand this
6:31
that being said
6:32
the idea that i would
6:34
all of this up and put myself
6:37
my wife
6:38
my son my entire family through this extremely stressful and painful
6:43
experience
6:44
all for the sake of money is completely because i was going to be accused of
6:48
you’re going to be a kid you say you you defended michael jackson while he was
6:51
alive
6:52
because he was good for your career and now that he’s gone there’s an
6:56
opportunity here to sue is a state he can’t defend himself and get money
7:01
when you go to the lawyers into this quietly
7:05
and try to to settle something some kind of a deal
7:08
because
7:09
outlived in silence
7:11
and denial for twenty two years
7:14
and i can’t
7:15
spend another moment in that
7:17
in order to truly feel
7:18
i have to speak my truth and i have to speak the whole truth
7:21
that’s one thing that you’ll never see for me i’m never going to go away with
7:24
this
7:26
sikka money i’m never going to be silenced
7:29
that’s not going to happen with with all that you’ve been through all of your the
7:32
work you did with michael jackson and what you know alleged was sexual abuse
7:37
by michael jackson when i say his name for you
7:40
this morning what do you think of
7:46
anger
7:48
and compassion
7:50
there is um…
7:51
there is no excuse
7:53
for what he did to me
7:54
and uh… i believe many others
7:56
but um…
7:57
but he was a troubled man
7:59
and every effect as it’s calls
8:03
the image that
8:04
presents to the world
8:07
is not the whole explanation of who someone else
8:09
you know michael jackson was
8:11
yes an incredibly talented artist
8:13
and there was an incredible gift
8:16
he was many things
8:17
and it is also a pedophile
8:19
the child sexual abuse
8:21
his fans have been contacted me on twitter this morning
8:24
record numbers for you
8:25
and a lot of them are saying you’re a traitor
8:28
we understand their emotions this morning
8:31
understand how confusing it is to understand
8:34
how hard it is to understand i get that
8:36
but um… all it takes is a little bit of education
8:40
into child sexual abuse and realizing how unfortunately typical
8:45
my scenario is
8:46
the trauma and the psychological effects of child sexual abuse last
8:51
for so
8:52
you know i had no understanding of this until
8:55
up to just over a year ago
8:57
and i’m just the beginning
8:58
of my healing process i’m sure i’ll be dealing with this
9:01
for the rest of my life
9:04
i’m so thankful that this is happening
9:07
because now
9:08
i can get my life back
9:10
you know in my son
9:12
my son is going to save my life
9:15
