Michael Jackson friend Wade Robson now says he was molested

Getty ImagesMore molestation claims against the late Michael Jackson

Former child star Wade Robson is blaming repressed memories on why he is now coming forward with molestation claims against the late Michael Jackson.

Details of the alleged abuse are sealed, but accusations of gold-digging are of course coming up–especially from lawyers for the Jackson estate.

Robson swears that he had sleepovers with M.J. from the time he was 7 years old, though he previously denied that anything funny ever went on. However, former Jackson maid Blanca Franca testified in Jackson’s 2005 molestation trial that she saw Michael in the shower with Robson when he was 8 or 9 years old.

You can’t slander the dead, so this case is going to get really interesting as more facts come to light.
