Jermaine Jackson slams Robson

Jermaine Jackson

Jermaine Jackson has dismissed allegations that his brother Michael sexually abused the choreographer Wade Robson.

Choreographer Wade is requesting money from the Michael Jackson Estate after alleging he suffered “childhood sexual abuse”. Michael’s sibling Jermaine Jackson has now spoken out to vehemently dismiss the claims.

"He's full of sh*t,” Jermaine told TMZ.

Wade filed legal papers on May 1 claiming the late pop star sexually abused him during sleepovers at the late singer’s Neverland Ranch between the age of seven and 14.

He previously denied allegations of child abuse when he testified in the singer’s 2005 molestation trial.

Jermaine has highlighted the fact that Wade testified under oath that Michael had never touched him. He also claims that Wade and his mother helped Jermaine write his book a few years ago.

A lawyer for Michael’s estate has previously branded the allegations “outrageous and pathetic”.

Meanwhile, Wade is believed to have left California.

He has reportedly sold his Santa Monica condo for around $825,000 and is planning to relocate to Hawaii, where his wife grew up.

Sources tell TMZ that the choreographer only recently filed the papers because he suffered from “repressed memory”.

The Jackson family is currently involved in litigation with concert promoter AEG Live.

Michael’s mother Katherine accuses the firm of negligent behaviour that led to the star’s 2009 death from a Propofol overdose.

Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
