http://www.express.co.uk/news/showbiz/398919/...TWO more alleged child abuse victims of Michael Jackson are preparing to file lawsuits against the late singers estate, it was revealed yesterday.
A legal source close to the singers family confirmed:One is in the public eye, the other not. But they are both telling the same story of regular and repeated molestations.
The claims come 10 days after top Hollywood choreographer Wade Robson launched his own legal battle for compensation from Jacksons estate.
Australian Robson, 30, alleges he was systematically molested for seven years during his childhood at the Neverland Ranch, where he was a regular guest of the star.
The other two claim they too were subjected to years of abuse, according to the legal source, who added:They are waiting to see what happens in the first action.
Neither of them have made claims publicly before and neither were involved in Michaels 2005 molestation trial.
Personally, I believe they are simply trying to cash-in on the enormous wealth that has accrued since Michaels death.
Robson was a key defence witness in Jacksons trial, at which the star was acquitted by a jury of seven counts of child molestation and two of administering intoxicating agents to a 13-year-old boy, in 2005.
He was also accused of molesting Jordie Chandler in 1993, whom he allegedly paid off.
Robsons U-turn was attacked by Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for the Jackson estate who described his lawsuit as outrageous and pathetic, adding:This is a young man who has testified twice under oath and said in numerous interviews that Michael Jackson never did anything inappropriate to him or with him.
Robsons lawyer Henry Gradstein countered:My client has lived with the brainwashing of a sexual predator until the stress and burden of it finally crushed him.
The fresh allegations have caused consternation among members of the Jackson family who are suing entertainment giant AEG over the singers death.
Don't know if it's true. It'll be interesting if it is.
