The lawyer for Michael Jackson’s latest molestation accuser claims the late King of Pop was a “monster” who threatened Wade Robson.

Choreographer Wade filed legal papers against the late King of Pop’s estate seeking monetary damages.

He claims Michael sexually abused him between the ages of seven and 14-years-old.

Attorney Howard Weitzman who oversees the Michael Jackson Estate has vehemently denied the allegations.

Wade’s lawyer Henry Gradstein alleges Michael was predatory.

"Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, [Wade] collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child,” Gradstein told TMZ.

"He lived with the brain washing by a sexual predator until the burden of it all crushed him.”

During Michael’s 2005 molestation trial, Wade adamantly denied the star ever sexually molested him.

Apparently these new allegations weren’t documented until now due to repressed memory.

Attorney Henry is convinced Michael was in fact a tactical abuser.

“[Michael would tell Wade] if anyone ever finds out about what we did we will go to jail for the rest of our lives our lives will be ruined forever,” the lawyer said.

"This kind of intimidation of a child by a sexual predator is tragically characteristic and effective, keeping them quiet about the abuse - often for a lifetime.

"Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it."

Attorney Tom Mesereau, who defended Michael in the 2005 molestation trial, has also addressed the allegations.

He insists Wade was unwavering in his testimony and was adamant that Michael had never touched him in a sexual manner even though they had slept in the same bed.

According to TMZ, the attorney believes the belated claim is “about money”.

"Michael never touched Robson inappropriately in any way,” he added to the website.

During the infamous legal proceeding, former housekeeper Blanca Francia testified she saw Michael and Wade showering together when the dancer was around eight or nine.
