Robson wants Jackson’s estate to admit that between 1990 and 1997, when Robson was between 7 and 14 years old, the King of Pop committed the listed crimes against him.
The documents accuse Jackson of “putting his hand over Robson’s clothed penis,” “taking Wade Robson’s hand and putting it inside [Jackson’s] underpants,” “French kissing,” showering together and much more.
Robson also accuses the “Bad” singer of showing him pornography and telling him “he loved him.”
When Robson first filed his complaint with the legal system, Jackson’s estate demanded more time, and said they couldn’t properly answer the allegations because the defendant is deceased. Robson’s attorney responded by saying, “Just because Michael Jackson is dead does not alleviate the corporations’ responsibility to respond.”
The Jackson estate filed a motion on July 25 asking the judge to reduce the number of admission requests from 143 to 35, but ultimately wants the case dismissed because of the time Robson waited to file his claim.
Robson famously testified on behalf of Jackson in 2005. He adamantly denied that he was ever abused by the pop star.
He claims to have suddenly come to this realization after the birth of his son. “This is not a case of repressed memory,” Robson told “Today” in 2013. “I have never forgotten one moment of what Michael did to me, but I was psychologically and emotionally completely unable and unwilling to understand that it was sexual abuse.”
It may be that the subject was molested prior to meeting Michael Jackson. This type of language ("emotionally...unable and unwilling...") is often found in sexual abuse victims who were victimized at a very young age and the sexual abuse interfered with brain development, particularly about boundaries, sensory perception, and what is "normal" in human connections.
Sexual abuse victims can develop Disassociation Disorders, which in speech, sounds like "passivity", as if they were watching themselves be abused. This may be the brain's way of protecting itself.
