Choreographer Wade Robson earlier this month alleged that he was sexually abused by Michael Jackson, but the late King of Pop’s brother Jermaine Jackson says the whole thing is a load of nonsense. More precisely, Jermaine tells TMZ that Wade is “full of s**t.”
As previously reported, Robson claims in his lawsuit against MJ’s estate that, as a child, he spent time at homes owned by Michael. Wade alleges that he was molested, but Jermaine says, “That’s a big lie.” Jackson points out that in previous years, Wade testified on Michael’s behalf. “He got on the stand, and told the courts that Michael never touched him and it’s the truth,” Jermaine insists, adding that “Michael can’t defend himself” now.
Wade and his mom have actually worked with Jermaine in the past, contributing to the entertainer’s book You Are Not Alone: Michael, Through a Brother’s Eye.
This month, other celebrities — including Lionel Richie — have been taking Michael’s side in the matter.
Asked if lawyers for Michael’s estate are considering filing a countersuit, Jermaine says he doesn’t know, while pointing out that they have “their hands busy.”
